At AGI we are committed to helping families and loved ones navigate this process from the very beginning. As a person myself in long term recovery, I am acutely aware of the difficulties that can arise for both the person of concern and their family seeking help. Today I work towards providing the same assistance I wish my own family received when we didn’t know where to turn. Addiction is a family disease in that it truly affects everyone. I encourage all parties to recognize this and allow themselves their own journey of recovery. (Read More) As a professional interventionist I am here to help my clients and their families by offering education, guidance and support every step of the way.  This work is my passion and my calling. I specialize in helping persons struggling with chronic relapse and those with complex recovery needs and circumstances. I have experience with helping individuals and families from all walks of life from those unable to work to high-functioning professionals with advanced credentials.  I work with all ages, adolescents through elderly.


I love being able to help families, like my own, out of the darkness and hopelessness of addiction. I love even more when these families turn around and offer hope to another family.


Addiction is progressive, fatal and incurable, but I am here to show you that it is TREATABLE.


Ashley Gaede grew up in the coastal Georgetown, SC area before settling a little further south in Charleston where she now resides. Although Ashley’s childhood was spent alongside a loving family, this did not insulate her from enduring childhood abuse and trauma that would follow her into adulthood. Ashley’s personal experience in overcoming addiction has given her a first hand understanding of the unique challenges of sobriety and long term recovery. Ashley’s own journey and a series of synchronicities eventually led her into the addiction treatment community which has now become her sole professional focus.
