If it is to be, it is up to me

Burning Tree was the vision of one man, David Elliott, and he established our philosophy of long term treatment truly centered in the 12 steps. Having been in several treatment centers yet still unable to establish long-term sobriety, David landed in a long-term residential treatment center that helped change his life. Burning Tree is the manifestation of David’s great love for recovery and recognition of the need for specialized treatment for the group of alcoholics/addicts called “chronic relapsers.” David maintains a personal interest in the recovery of every single client. He routinely co-facilitates Community Group, serving to inspire the clients through his passion, commitment and sense of discipline.

Love, Service, and Excellence: We are here to serve!

This is our team motto. Our team is totally committed to ending the suffering of our clients. Burning Tree’s philosophy, mission and vision is driven by David Elliott. David is committed to making every single detail in the client’s treatment experience productive and integral to preparing the individual for recovery. Having spent his entire 30 year business career in an entrepreneurial or operational position, David remains very “hands-on” in his style and this ensures full executive connection to the daily management of treatment operations.
