Founder and Executive Director
Ashley S. English founded The Willow Treatment and Recovery Center August of 2012 with the intention of providing a place of healing for those seeking relief from addiction and other life issues. As a person in long-term recovery, with over 13 years of sobriety, it is her belief that there is hope for each and every one of her clients and that recovery is possible. Ashley understands firsthand that people are capable of designing their dream life and reaching their fullest potential if given the right support system and accountability. The staff members at The Willow Center are willing to walk with their clients every step of the way. Ashley has been working in the field of addictions since 2004 and has facilitated programming throughout every level of care in the treatment continuum. She is a licensed addictions counselor and certified life coach with a specialty in working with substance impacted individuals. Not everyone who comes to The Willow Center has a substance use disorder, but they all have experienced negative consequences from their use. She is committed to standing shoulder to shoulder with her clients and assisting them in navigating though the challenges they are overcoming in their lives. She is focused on restoring or redesigning a life worth staying sober for so each of her clients can find value in what they are doing.
