Message from Burkwood CEO Charles Brooks

Welcome to the Burkwood Treatment Center website, and thank you for taking a few moments to learn about our program.

Regardless of the degree to which alcoholism and/or addiction has affected your life, I realize that the decision to get help is rarely an easy one to make. I commend you for taking this important first step, and I want you to know that you are not alone.

At Burkwood, we have been assisting individuals toward life-changing recovery for more than 25 years. We understand the devastating impact of the disease — not only on the afflicted individual, but on friends, family members, and other loved ones – and we are committed to providing the highest quality of care to those who choose to begin recovery with us.

I am proud to lead a team of talented and dedicated professionals who possess a wealth of knowledge and expertise. I am even more proud of the degree to which these professionals are focused on providing guidance and counsel in an atmosphere of dignity and respect.

When you choose to enter Burkwood, you can rest assured that you will never be treated as “just another patient.” Instead, you will work in active partnership with the members of your treatment team to develop a personalized treatment plan that is specifically customized to help you achieve your recovery goals.

At Burkwood, you will find a supportive community dedicated to helping you achieve the happier and healthier life that you deserve. From the day you enter treatment until long after you have completed the residential phase of your recovery, you will remain a valued member of the Burkwood family.

Again, thank you for your interest in Burkwood Treatment Center and for sharing a few moments with me on this page. To learn more about how our program is uniquely prepared to meet your needs or the needs of someone you love, please feel free to call us at your convenience (715.690.3212).

From all of us in the Burkwood family, we wish you great success as you walk the path of recovery.
