Learn About Our Therapy

Read about therapy options we offer

At Burkwood, treatment occurs in a highly structured environment that is conducive to physical healing, spiritual enrichment, and emotional development. Our approach to treatment encourages participants to work in close collaboration with the members of their treatment team and to take active ownership of their recovery.

Depending upon a participant’s specific needs, he or she will interact with experienced professionals, including counselors who specialize in addiction and mental health, a psychiatrist, a registered nurse, and additional specialists as needed. With an extremely low participant-to-counselor ratio, we can ensure that each person receives frequent and significant personal attention as they progress through their individualized treatment plans.

Treatment at Burkwood features evidence-based, research-supported programming that incorporates both time-tested techniques and emerging methods that have proven to be particularly effective at meeting the specific needs of each participant. For example, our approach to treatment places great value on the principles and practices of the 12-Step recovery model, which has helped millions of individuals over the past 80 years. Our implementation of the 12-Step model is supplemented and supported by the Making AA Easier (MAAEZ) program, a relatively new initiative that has a documented success rate of improving the likelihood that individuals will remain abstinent from alcohol and other drugs.
