ABOUT ASHLAND HOME
Located in a suburban neighborhood of Laguna Hills, Calif., and founded in 1998, Ashland Home is a residential treatment center for women struggling with substance abuse. The 30-day program centers around the 12-steps of recovery, peer support, and mentorship. The facility also offers sober living facilities, though detox services are not available on-site.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Ashland Home provides non-clinical treatment while using 12-step programming and peer support. Treatment begins with a 30-day residential stay in which time women receive support and sober monitoring from their assigned peers. During residential care, residents may also participate in peer-led counseling sessions and educational workshops.
After the 30-day residential program, women may continue their recovery by living the nonprofit’s nearby-sober living house for an additional year. Residents must remain sober, adhere to house rules, and commit to full-time work. In California, Ashland Home is among the 54.5 percent of facilities to provide specialized programming for women.
Ashland Home relies daily on the effort of volunteers.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Rooms are shared by multiple residents, and sleeping arrangements are occasionally changed. The facility's website depicts a spacious, home-like facility with a kitchen, living room, and outdoor recreation area.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
The three alumni polled by Rehabs.com to date gave overwhelmingly positive reviews for the facility. Lila and Pam each gave the facility five out of five stars for treatment effectiveness, meals & nutrition, and accommodations & amenities. Alum Lila also gave five-star ratings for the facility's cleanliness and for the likelihood they'd recommend the facility to others. "It was 30 day free program so being in my disease and homeless at the time, this was ideal for me," Lila wrote.
The third alumni wrote: "This place saved my life. It's incredible and the people are amazing." Alum Pam noted the volunteer-led environment and wrote: “Out of 5, this is the only rehab that worked for me.”
Third-party reviews revealed similar positive experiences. On the facility's Facebook page, which Ashland may have the ability to control, 29 users to date gave Ashland Home an average rating of 4.5 out of five-star ratings. “I am an Ashland Angel and this place saved my life,” wrote Debbie. “This place felt like home instantly and the laughs i shared in this place i'll never forget.” On Google, three reviewers gave five-star ratings, while a fourth offered only a one-star review.
Ashland’s webpage maintains that programs are provides "at no charge to the women they serve." In California, Ashland Home is among the 46.6 percent of facilities that may offer treatment at no-cost. However, a nominal fee of $100 per week is required to reside at the sober living home.
According to an article in The Orange County Register, Ashland House was "developed to help out women with no medical insurance or money" and does not employ a paid staff. The facility is largely supported by private donations and fundraising efforts.
