As a long-term, progress-based facility, Burning Tree Ranch features more therapeutic exposure than any program in the nation. Our clinical approach, our philosophies, and our mission are firmly grounded in the fundamental belief that permanent, lifelong sobriety is attainable for the chronic relapser. Inspired by our own lived experience, we create life-changing upheavals that propel our clients into a state of newfound honesty. By leveraging the unavoidable truths that surround their condition, we invite the chronic relapser to explore new experiences, new solutions, and new ideas that, if embraced, will open their minds, increase their willingness, and nurture their growing relationship with honesty. We do this to help the chronic relapser develop a deeper experience with the healing necessary to make full, permanent recoveries. We do this by inviting our clients to have a brand new experience with the Twelve Steps.
“At the end of the day, what we’re really doing is empowering our clients to create a life of excellence.”
Many Of Our Families Ask
Many of our families ask, “with all the evidence-based therapies, addiction medicine, and dual diagnosis treatment that you offer, why the twelve steps?”
But We Already Worked the Twelve Steps!
At Burning Tree Ranch, we understand all of this. We also understand what working all twelve steps really looks like. Here is a quick litmus test to help you know if your loved one really did work all twelve steps:
- Did they make sincere and frank amends for the harms they have caused you and others, and seek to make each of them right, and then follow through?
- Did they dedicate a significant portion of their lives to the service of others, helping other addicted persons find the same freedom they had been given?
- Did they accept and own responsibility for past mistakes, and identify a clear path to no longer engaging in the same behaviors, and then follow through?
- Did they attend meetings regularly, take service and volunteer commitments, and place spiritual principles (such as honesty & humility) at the forefront of all their affairs?
- Did they speak often of gratitude, thanks and appreciation for their sobriety, and the opportunity to be of service to others in need?
- Did they become responsible, accountable, and dependable in their daily life, with consistency and determination?
- Did they undergo a psychic change in personality that made them nearly unrecognizable from the addicted person you knew before?
