With over a decade of experience in the Mental Health & Human Services field, Ashley Fuery has been trained in many crisis de-escalation techniques, including NAPPI, NVPI, TCI, and CPI. As a Certified Intervention Professional (CIP), Ashley excels at building an appropriate, trusting rapport with her clients, as her passion for helping people with mental health and substance abuse drives her motivation.
Ashley is no stranger to addiction; she lost her step-brother to the disease two years ago. She’s committed her career to helping patients and their families get on the road to recovery. She often reminds families of her favorite quote: “Don’t hate the addict, hate the disease. Don’t hate the person, hate the behavior. If it’s hard to watch it, imagine how hard it must be to live it.”
Ashley is a big advocate of treating patients alongside of their families. It’s easy to forget who the person struggling with addiction was before their disease – Ashley’s goal is to rediscover that person on their way to recovery and mend the family.
