Helping your whole family heal.

“My family came from different directions. We left with one clear direction.” – Karen L.

Total commitment from family—including partners, parents, children and other relatives—can make all the difference in lifelong recovery. It takes family participation from the entire support system to get well and enjoy everyday experiences again.

Family Wellness Program

Family members (aged 15 and older) will receive time with Ashley’s expert counselors— trained in family therapy—so you can voice any feelings, past or present, and begin the healing process together through open communication.

Accept. Understand. Overcome.

Ashley’s Family Wellness Program helps loved ones cope with the collateral effects of addiction. As part of this program, we’ll focus on the perspectives of everyone involved because the patient often isn’t the only person in need of healing.

Ashley’s Family Wellness Program includes:

  • Participation in a three day weekend program on the Ashley Campus
  • Education about the science of addiction
  • Workshops to help you gain coping skills to manage stress, fear and co-dependence
  • Consultations with expert certified counselors—trained in family therapy

One patient family member receives complimentary admission for the program.* Lunch is provided and several nearby hotels offer discounted rates.

Our program is also open to the public.

*Complimentary admission for the program applies to patient families in our inpatient program only. Program fees apply to outpatient families and members of the public.

Children & Youth Program

The Children and Youth Program focuses on the complex challenges for children (ages 6-14) when a parent or loved one begins treatment. The program teaches children how to express their emotions—like confusion, frustration, guilt or embarrassment, in a productive and fun atmosphere.

Nurture addiction free futures.

“After participating, it seemed like something very heavy was lifted away.” – Sara, Mason’s mom

Addiction within a family environment can cause specific and complex challenges for children. In the Ashley Children and Youth Program for children ages 6-14, we deal with each child’s unique needs in an age appropriate manner. We also teach parents to help their children avoid long-term problems like academic issues, delinquency and substance use. Addressing these issues from a young age helps your child reach their full potential.

Ashley’s Children & Youth Program includes:

  • Participation in a one day session, held on the second Saturday of each month
  • Workshops facilitated by expert counselors, specially trained in addiction and youth risk behavior
  • Fun, educational activities like crafts and games
  • Learning how to express and channel thoughts and feelings
  • Lessons in how to openly communicate and rebuild trust

Caregivers attend an all day workshop led by expert certified counselors.

The Children and Youth Program is open to the public on the second Saturday of each month from 9 am to 3 pm. For more information or to register, please call 1.800.799.4673 ext 227 or Registration is required.
