LONG-TERM DUAL DIAGNOSIS TREATMENT
FOR THE CHRONIC RELAPSER.
We can recognize a “Burning Tree client” from a mile away.
While we do observe a formal clinical criteria for our clientele, the truth is that more often than not, our gut will sound the alarm that an individual is a perfect fit for Burning Tree.
A five-minute phone call with a family member can usually give us all the information we need to spot this fit for Burning Tree.
This may not sound especially scientific or clinical, but what we can tell you, is that we know the character traits of the chronic relapser.
And we know how to get them well.
One tell-tale sign of a chronic relapser is their high IQ. Along with it, an incredible talent for wit, quick thinking and humor. Having mastered the English language, they use their vocabulary to outmaneuver nearly any obstacle. However, as their addiction develops, intelligence becomes their greatest liability. Instead of using their brilliant minds for good, they use it to disarm loved ones, treatment providers, and anyone who has set out to help them. They are masters at dishonesty, justification, and persuasion. The stories they weave and the lengths they go to evade personal responsibility boggle the mind. One of their most baffling features is how they often leave you wondering if you are the crazy one.
Here’s the good news . . . At Burning Tree Ranch, all we treat is chronic relapsers. We know our client like no other provider on earth. As a staff, we are able to see our clients through their attempts at manipulation, emotional terrorism and intellectual domination. We get to stay one step ahead of them, anticipate their next diversion, and help them to find permanent recovery.
