Burning Tree

2837 County Road 101, Kaufman, Texas, 75142
Accountability, responsibility, and consistency on a daily basis are the watchwords at Burning Tree. The relapsing alcoholic or addict is shown a manner of living that demands rigorous honesty as demonstrated through the client’s actions in all areas of their lives. Our clients come to us “asleep dreaming they are awake,” and it is our intent and practice to take them through a process of waking up to the reality of how they have been living their lives. Coupled with the full realization of the problem our clients are introduced to a “way of living,” that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.

Facility Highlights

  • Family Program
  • 12-Step programs
  • Nutritional Guidance


  • Dual Diagnosis

    At Burning Tree, Dual Diagnosis of addiction, and any underlying psychological conditions that interplay, is not divided into component parts and treated separately. Rather, all possible elements and factors are addressed through an integrated approach that acknowledges that each has a simultaneous impact on the other. Sequential approaches are much more limited in effectiveness because, of necessity, the order of Rehabilitation diminishes the importance of the other. The Co-Occurring approach has produced highly successful results as demonstrated by low relapse percentages.

Our daughter did not do well with the mixed groups. We paid up front over $50,000 and she left without a phone in the middle of nowhere, and bad things happened. We are still paying for the treatment. Very few actually complete the program so that makes their statistics look good, as they do not count the number that leave early. Program okay for males with no mental health issues. Not recommended for females, as most of them have a co-occurring disorder and need evidence- based treatment with professional oversight.

I checked in BT October 6, 2010. Best decision I ever made. I\'ve witnessed miracles you wouldn\'t comprehend. Today I am best of friends with all I completed the program with.

I already made up my mind to quit so I mostly needed to detox and they offered support for when you get out as well.

This program is uniquely designed to address those individuals who are 'reluctant to recover': in other words, addicts with a history of relapsing. This is a no-nonsense long-term program, complemented by an intensive after-care program that is coordinated and staffed by personnel from Burning Tree. It is a peer-driven community where clients learn about their disease, diligently apply and practice the 12 Steps, and take responsibility for their choices and behavior. By eliminating a hard timeline,(30- 60-90 days), the program offers a unique opportunity for healing and recovery to take hold.
