Admissions: Embarking on a Journey of Permanent Recovery with Burning Tree Ranch

A Long-Term Treatment Program Designed for Chronic Relapsers

The Burning Tree Ranch program is designed to help the chronic relapser overcome addiction, establish a healthy and productive life, and achieve permanent freedom from relapse.

We have helped families recover from the disease of addiction and chronic relapse since 1999.

With more than 25 years of experience as a long-term treatment provider, we are the foremost experts in treating chronic relapse. Our entire program from residence to aftercare is designed to offer the appropriate amount of time to identify, treat, and recover from chronic addiction in a dual-diagnosis setting.

Our Commitment: Delivering Life-Changing Clinical Interventions

At Burning Tree Ranch, we promise to deliver life-changing clinical interventions to those who have been unable to find freedom from the unending cycle of relapse.

The work we do is complex and time-consuming. It is also lasting.

We ask our families to trust us, to take our hand, and to allow us to guide them away from the path they’ve been traveling for years.

What Families Can Expect: Support, Involvement, and Transformation

Addiction is proven to wreak havoc upon families emotionally, financially, and physically. In many cases, it destroys families entirely.

The Burning Tree Ranch program actively involves families in the treatment process, recognizing the crucial role they play in their loved one’s recovery.

Throughout treatment, we invite families to develop a deeper relationship with honesty, exploring the impact of addiction on their lives and preparing for the uncomfortable but necessary process of doing things differently.

What Clients Can Expect: A Comprehensive, Individualized Approach

For our clients and alumni, recovery is about more than simply abstaining from drugs or alcohol; it’s about achieving a sense of fulfillment, improving mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being, and developing a solid foundation for lifelong sobriety.

We believe that recovery is possible no matter how many previous attempts our clients have made at becoming sober.

Meghan Bohlman, Clinical Director

“We understand the relationship between substance abuse and mental health. More than anything else, we understand the chronic relapser. As your loved one moves through our progress-based program, our goal is to help them become a self-supporting, emotionally balanced, and sober individual.”

Meghan Bohlman, LPC, LCDC, Clinical Director

Our Greatest Asset: Allowing for the Time Needed to Address Chronic Addiction

Short-term programs generally follow a predetermined timeline for treatment episodes. Burning Tree recognizes that every individual’s path to recovery is unique. We track progress – not days – as our client’s journey through a clinical curriculum designed to aid the chronic relapser in achieving a life of excellence beyond sobriety.

Our sophisticated team of addiction and mental health experts evaluate, monitor, and carefully diagnose each client so that the appropriate treatment plans can be determined.

Utilizing addiction medicine, evidence-based practices, and twelve step immersion, Burning Tree incorporates progress-based metrics to inform the treatment team of client’s progress towards important therapeutic milestones.

Jesse Earwood, Executive Director

“We’ve been helping families with chronic relapse since 1999. We do what other programs don’t, we provide meaningful, lifelong solutions that transform the individual and family, permanently.”

Jesse Earwood, Executive Director

Why Hasn't Short Term Treatment Worked?

Chronic relapsers are individuals who have experienced significant, life-altering consequences because of addiction, yet continue to use.

Typically, this person has experienced multiple previous treatment episodes that have failed to successfully address their needs. They were either too short, too unstructured, or too unqualified to address the circumstantial and underlying conditions that promote relapse.

By design, short-term programs often follow a predetermined one-size-fits-all approach. These fail to account for the unique needs of each individual. While short-term treatment is effective for some, advanced cases of chronic addiction usually have complex circumstances or underlying co-occuring mental health conditions that necessitate more comprehensive treatment and personalized care.
