SUPPORT FOR FAMILY MEMBERS
A recent article in U.S. News & World Report illustrated the importance of support groups for family members with a loved one struggling with addiction. At Ashley, we know how important it is and that is why we created monthly, regional meetings that are professionally-facilitated for parents, guardians, and other family members that have a child, children, or other loved one, in recovery or in active addiction. Please feel free to use this as a resource in helping your clients.

The 10th Anniversary Mae Abraham Legacy Luncheon
One of Baltimore’s favorite spring recovery events is fast-approaching! The annual Mae Abraham Legacy Luncheon will be held on May 17, 2017 at the beautiful Baltimore Four Seasons Hotel. For the luncheon’s 10th Anniversary, Ashley will launch a the guest honoree will be Rebecca (Becky) Flood, CEO of New Directions for Women— a women’s only addiction treatment facility in Costa Mesa, California.
In her nearly four decades of experience in the health care industry, Becky has demonstrated expertise in the addiction treatment field, first as Vice President of Treatment Services at Seabrook House in New Jersey. As CEO of New Directions for Women since 2004, her expertise has been used exclusively for issues relating to women of all ages, pregnant women in any trimester, and women with dependent children affected by addiction. Becky is a visionary national ambassador for recovery and the advancement of women with an ongoing mission to break down the stigma of addiction.
“Ashley Addiction Treatment Founders, Father Martin and Mae Abraham, had such an impact on the evolution of the treatment of people and family members suffering from addiction,” says Rebecca. “Father Martin had an incredible impact on my early years of recovery and facilities around the country are still utilizing his teachings and impacted by his humor and passion. I am beyond touched by this honor of being recognized for my own lifetime of work.”
The luncheon now in its 10th year, is special for several reasons: First, it is a wonderful celebration of women living lives in joyful recovery! We’ll get an early start celebrating Ashley co-Founder, Mae Abraham’s 90th birthday coming in July! And even more exciting, the Luncheon will mark the launch of a campaign to raise funds for the new Women’s Center at Ashley!
Women face different challenges during their treatment experience, and the Women’s Center will help meet many of those needs. Housed within the female-only, residential Noble Hall, the Center will be an oasis of safety where women can convene, relax and explore an array of activities which support their recovery.
The Center will provide an atmosphere of awakening helping to foster relationships, as relationships are critical to the emotional development of women and play a significant role in their recovery. The availability of a dedicated space for women will encourage them to continue treatment and help them feel cared for and connected with others. It will allow them to express compassion, creativity, warmth, support, authenticity, humility and sensitivity. The Women’s Center will truly be the HEART of women’s treatment at Ashley!
