Our Success Rate

ASV has a fairly good success rate – approximately 60 – 70% of residents are fully rehabilitated ie are able to lead a normal life and join the main stream of society; get employment, marry and have their own families. 20 to 25% are able to independently take care of themselves and engage in part time work; 10 – 15% leave before completing their treatment.

Unique Features

We collaborate closely with the client and family to design each person's program individually and activities are arranged to respect individual needs and interests. We use only optimum dosage of medication. We believe that people with mental illness can be taught to be aware and take responsibility for themselves, hence we need them to be less sedated. Because of this we use innovative methods when management becomes a problem & are not quick to hospitalize them. Therefore, we are able to accommodate residents from an acute phase to full recovery. Our staff resident ratio is almost 1:1

Director

dale-finMr. Dale Peacock

A science student, but with a strong passion to help mentally disturbed persons, I entered into a field which combined both – science of the brain and mental health and psychotherapy. I am a certified practitioner in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). My commitment to continuing professional development, with my career experience at ASV and qualifications in NLP, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt, Hypnotherapy, Rational Emotive Therapy, Cognitive Behavior therapy, Reality Therapy etc allows me to confidently and capably provide the necessary healing for troubled minds. Have put in 28 years of service with ASV as a psychotherapist and have grown personally and professionally over these years. I have also put in a month’s practice at the Connect Therapeutic Community in Birmingham, UK. In my current role as Director of ASV, I use a recovery-oriented model of service and client participation as an important part of the program activities. I consistently evaluate interventions and initiatives using outcome measures and adjust my program depending on changes to my clients’ health, environment and circumstances. Also provide teaching & training to staff teams & college students.
