Chronic pain isn’t merely physical. It’s also psychological. We use innovative tools and therapies to help you reduce or eradicate chronic pain and regain control of your life.
Find freedom from pain.
Pain and substance use disorders are each debilitating on their own. Together, they can seem insurmountable. But, recovery is possible. Our Pain Recovery Program helps you reduce pain while also treating your dependence on medication. By focusing on recovery rather than merely managing pain, we’re able to reduce pain, maximize your functionality and mobility, and improve your quality of life.
Our expert team — board-certified physicians, nurses, an addiction psychiatrist, a cognitive therapist, a personal trainer and a counselor — is specifically trained to meet the unique demands of pain recovery with physical and psychological therapies, counseling, and education about chronic pain.
“If I didn’t stop, I would not be alive today and that is what Ashley gave me. I had to be in a different setting and away from my family and I had to be at Ashley. Life is good and Ashley saved my life.” – Paula
