May 2016 e-News
By now, you’ve heard the news that the Ashley brand is evolving and we are now known as Ashley Addiction Treatment. You can still call us Ashley.
Father Martin and Mae Abraham built this organization on the promise of healing with dignity. Our new brand honors this legacy while at the same time positioning Ashley to grow, to thrive, and to fulfill that promise. Our new brand better reflects the Ashley of today and helps point us toward tomorrow.
But this is about much more than a name and a logo. Our new brand speaks to everything about our organization that shapes what people think about Ashley. It is the words we use when we communicate. It is the beautiful campus and buildings. It is our compassionate and dedicated staff. It is the very spirit of Ashley.
Our brand evolution is just one of the many changes that are transforming our entire organization and helping to lead us into the future: A spectacular new building on campus – Skip’s Hall for Integrated Addiction Treatment – allows us to deliver innovative programs and services that meet the evolving needs of our patients. We are developing new programming initiatives, including outpatient programs in partnership with major hospital systems. We launched an integrated program dedicated to the unique needs of young adults, and I invite you to read more about this exciting program in this newsletter. And all of this is just the beginning!
We believe it is crucial that we continue to grow and expand our services to help more people find freedom and a life beyond addiction. We hope to announce additional programming enhancements in the near future so that we can deliver on our promise: Everything for recovery, because recovery is everything.
Father Mark Hushen, O.S.F.S.
Becoming an adult isn’t easy. You want to be free to live your life, but if you’re dependent on drugs or alcohol, that independence gets taken away.
That’s why Ashley’s experienced staff has used every innovative tool available to create an integrated Young Adult Program that focuses on the unique needs of those who are 18 to 25, all while fostering an environment of respect and dignity.
Through interactive workshops, recreational therapy and breakout groups, we motivate young adults to take back control of their lives and become strong and active members of society.
