We are a highly sophisticated long-term residential treatment and aftercare program designed exclusively for the chronic relapser.


Operating outside the limitations of a traditional 30, 60 or 90-day format, Burning Tree adheres to progress-based metrics that inform the clinical treatment team of the unique mental, emotional and spiritual needs of the individual. As of today, we are the only treatment center in the United States that combines time-intensive residential treatment with a therapeutically coordinated aftercare program focused singularly on the treatment of chronic relapsers.


Burning Tree Ranch clients possess many talents and gifts.

Some of the language used to describe a Burning Tree client are smart, articulate, manipulative, charming, disarming, creative, and amazing.

Designed to address the distinct needs of Chronic Relapsers.

Many of our clients have achieved tremendous success in pursuit of education, business, and personal goals. 

Others possess the inherent potential for greatness but have been held back by the tight constraints of addiction and mental health disorders. 

That said, all of our clients share one thing in common: they have not been able to achieve or maintain meaningful sobriety despite overwhelming consequences to their personal health and well-being. 

Burning Tree Ranch is designed to address the distinct needs of those we treat, specifically those who suffer from a history of chronic relapse and mental health disorder.

Sophisticated Clinical Team

Our clinical and psychiatric team are trained to treat a variety of dual diagnosis conditions that extend beyond addiction. Some of the conditions we address include Bi-Polar Disorder, ADHD, Anxiety, Depression, Grief and Loss, Body Image & Attachment Disorders, Trauma, Mood Disorder, and Borderline Personality Disorder. 

Utilizing evidence-based therapies such as CBT, DBT, EMDR, and Neurofeedback, our primary focus is to help generate measurable results in the quality of our client’s emotional and mental well-being, thus dramatically reducing exposure to relapse. 

While the foundation of our program centers around the spiritual principles of the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous, our delivery of world-class clinical interventions relies on an advanced therapeutic curriculum featuring Addiction Medicine, Evidence-Based Therapies, and in-depth trauma work designed to help free the chronically addicted person from the cycle of relapse.
