My loved one checked-in at Ashley for help with alcoholism. She has an outgoing personality, and loves fitness and health. Ashley made her alcoholism worse by attempting to stifle her personality and by not allowing her to engage in physical activities. They expected her to be dumb and mute. This place is staffed by incompetent, uncaring people who possess no warmth and human understanding. And as a bonus, they seem to all be former addicts.
It is clear Ashley takes too many patients at one time, and they are likely looking for any excuse to kick people out so they can in some way make more money.
Men and women are kept in close proximity to one another, and asked to dine in the same room, but if they speak to each other, they are harshly reprimanded.
They promise to keep in touch with authorized loved ones, but they do not return calls or emails even when the patient has authorized the contact.
My loved one was treated like dirt and accused of having mental illnesses she does not possess just because she has a personality.
Because she is thin and healthy (and from what I saw all the counselors are obese) she was accused of being anorexic.
Her counselor made inappropriate statements to her such as we have a lot in common, and we don’t get along because we are so much alike.
The counselors lied on several occasions.
In my opinion, this entire place is just the latest disaster resulting from a Catholic church heritage.
They tossed my loved one out the day before family day, after travel plans had been made and expenses incurred, even though she wanted to stay and recover.
My loved one later went to a smaller facility where she was allowed to be herself, to workout and exercise, and where she was genuinely cared about.
Do not send your loved one to this awful place!! There are many other facilities that will actually help your loved one instead of making their condition worse.
