Ashley Criado, LCDC-I, MHPS, RSPS

YES Program Counselor

Ashley was raised in a small town called Lytle, TX. She started drinking and using drugs socially at a young age. She quickly put the alcohol to the side but before she knew it, she was in full blown drug addiction. She had lost everything, became homeless, got arrested, and put herself in many dangerous situations. After receiving the gift of desperation, she went to rehab in October 2018. By the grace of God, she has been sober since October 5, 2018. Recovery has given Ashley a relationship with her kids that addiction took from her and has allowed her to be a consistent mother to her child she had in 2020. Most of all, recovery has given her the opportunity to learn who she really is and to love herself for who she is.
