About Us

Father Martin Media and Ashley Addiction Treatment are divisions of Ashley, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. All proceeds from media sales support non-profit addiction treatment, education, programs and services. Ashley, Inc. advances Father Martin's mission to help addicts and their families heal with compassion, dignity, respect and the principles of the 12-Step programs.


Father Joseph C. Martin's widely celebrated filmChalk Talk on Alcohol was originally produced in 1972 and coincided with the founding of Kelly Productions, Inc., an organization co-created with Mae Abraham to distribute Father Martin's teachings. He emerged as a trusted and revered voice in the addiction treatment community and produced numerous films, audio presentations, and books. Through humor, storytelling and understanding, Father Martin's messages inspire. Fr. Martin's celebrity was accompanied by a vision, again shared with Mae, to establish a treatment center that embodied the principles of his teaching. That dream was realized in 1983 with the founding of Father Martin's Ashley. On October 30, 2009, Ashley, Inc. acquired the assets of Kelly Productions. Fr. Martin's entire body of work, including all copyrights, is now owned by Ashley and will be preserved and celebrated, now and forever.
