Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of overcoming it.
~ Helen Keller
Time Is On Your Side
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 are a true, authentic long-term inpatient and aftercare program, specializing in the treatment of addiction and co-occurring disorders.
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.
Unlike any other program in the nation, we utilize time to help us determine our client’s clinical, emotional, and spiritual needs.
Our sophisticated team of addiction and mental health experts evaluate, monitor, and accurately diagnose the chronic relapser 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.
If these expected milestones are not met, treatment completion becomes an open-ended process, and the chronic relapser remains in treatment until the necessary progress is achieved.

Treating Chronic Relapse Since 1999
We have helped families recover from the disease of addiction and chronic relapse since 1999.
Our sophisticated clinical team, our focus on the twelve steps, and our accountable and structured environment, helps chronic relapsers break the chains of addiction and create a whole new life of meaning.
With nearly 25 years of experience as a long-term treatment provider, we are the foremost experts in treating chronic relapse.
Why Short-Term Treatment Doesn’t Work For Everyone
Burning Tree Ranch clients are persons who have experienced significant, life-altering consequences because of addiction.
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 true, underlying conditions that promote relapse.
At Burning Tree Ranch, we treat addiction the same way we treat co-occurring disorders, in a measured, progressed-based manner that supports meaningful growth and healing. All of this takes time.
As a long-term program, we get to know our clients and families intimately. We develop treatment plans based on relapse histories, mental health diagnoses, and current levels of resistance and willingness.
Short-term programs simply do not have the resources, time, or experience to effectively treat the chronic relapser in a 30, 60, or 90-day environment. While they may be able to scratch the surface, the surface will never do. For chronic relapsers, permanent recovery must happen deep on the inside.
As the nation’s only authentic, long-term treatment provider, we assist our clients and families in discovering lifelong, permanent solutions that work.
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.
While other treatment centers invest in keeping their clients comfy, cozy, and happy, Burning Tree Ranch invests in the therapeutic value of honesty, integrity, and excellence. We are a long-term, progress-based program designed to address the root causes of addiction.
The work we do is complex and time-consuming. It is also lasting.
That said, we find it helpful to reveal right up front that our treatment program is the most challenging in the nation.
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.
Some of these moments will be difficult. During these times, we promise to aid our families in adopting a whole new set of practices, a whole new set of principles and yes, a whole new way of living.
Our promise is to help the entire family as we journey forth in creating a life of excellence beyond sobriety.
