Women & Children’s Residential

We provide the only mother & child residential treatment programme in Ireland.

Often a major barrier for mothers seeking help from their addiction is the fear of being separated from their children.

Ashleigh House provides a childcare programme in our dedicated creche, which is accessible to all parents partaking in the programme. Mother’s can feel safe in the knowledge that whilst they are engaging in our programme; that their child is being looked after in a safe, secure, caring and nurturing environment, where they can freely fulfill their childhood needs for their duration of their residency.

We provide a Parenting under Pressure programme (PuP). The Parents under Pressure programme combines psychological principles relating to parenting, child behaviour and parental emotion regulation within a case management model. We aim to promote optimal development for each child, support parents, and ensure each child is treated with equality, dignity and respect.

The programme at Ashleigh House takes a holistic approach to care, looking after the mind, body and spirit of each person. This also includes supporting the family and friends of our clients who may also be affected by their substance addiction. On this basis, we work in conjunction with each family and guardians.

We have close links with a range of agencies and services. This interaction often takes the form of regular meetings and telephone updates in consultation with the client.
