Individual Therapy for Chronic Relapse
Individual therapy is a key component to successfully completing treatment at Burning Tree Ranch. As a specialty program, all of our therapeutic tools, including individual therapy, are tailored to the unique needs of the chronic relapser. More than with most treatment centers, Ranch clients will require an experienced ally to guide them through the many challenges associated with establishing permanent sobriety. At Burning Tree Ranch, we rely on frankness, authenticity, and honesty to foster trust in the therapeutic process. We know that our program is difficult, that in order to help the chronic relapser manifest lifelong recovery, we will have to consistently reaffirm their commitment to the work required. Through individual therapy, we provide our clients the regular opportunity to explore the thoughts and feelings that arise as they journey into a deeper relationship with honesty, dedication, and resolve.
The Goal of Individual Therapy
The goal of individual therapy at Burning Tree Ranch is to motivate the client to explore certain behaviors that may interfere with, delay, or sabotage the opportunity to find permanent freedom from relapse. Establishing intentions, forecasting benchmarks, and evaluating how the client’s real-time behaviors (may or may not) align with their stated goals are often routine discussion points for individual therapy sessions. Unlike most programs, Burning Tree Ranch helps the chronic relapser remain acutely focused on the disciplines of personal accountability and personal responsibility during the treatment process. Once this principle is firmly established, our clients begin to accept more ownership for their recovery. They gradually let go of the need to intellectualize, minimize, or evade the sensitive topic of what brought them to long-term treatment. Finally, they are able to see that it is them and their behaviors that must change, not the world about them. This is one of the first steps towards creating a life of excellence beyond sobriety. It is also the step that requires the most honesty.

Proper Diagnosis at our Long-Term Treatment Facility
Burning Tree addresses co-occurring disorders that may have blocked our clients from achieving recovery in previous, shorter-term treatment episodes. We do this in an intimate, progress-based setting that integrates world-class clinical interventions with useful, esteem-building life skills. Each of our clients undergo advanced psychological screenings, clinical evaluations, and medical assessments to determine the best, most tailored treatment plans for their needs.
