Circle Tree Ranch is a residential alcohol and drug abuse treatment school where students explore the root causes of their addiction specific to their gender, age and experience. The curriculum includes topics on issues which may contribute to substance abuse such as childhood experiences, family dynamics, gender accountability, violence, prejudice, trauma, and relationships, fosters emotional intelligence and encourages the development of authentic friendships. Students learn and work together on a 50 acre ranch in a variety of settings including group circles, vocational experiences, team-building settings and intensive retreats. At Circle Tree Ranch students are exposed to a wide range of cultural experiences, learn emotional literacy, tolerance and moral development. Through daily practice, students are able to change their emotional reflexes to situations, people and, more importantly, to themselves. Longer residential rehabilitation treatment is encouraged for the dedicated student who wishes to reconcile, re-member and re-solve life issues and significantly expand her/his repertoire of responses. Families are included in the process of addiction recovery and change. Parents seeking substance abuse treatment with young children who reside with them on the campus are welcome for longer courses.
Thresholds of Change: 90 Days
Circle Tree Ranch’s Thresholds of Change Track is tailored to individuals who are highly motivated to make positive changes in their lives. This track affords students time to identify core life issues which are associated with alcoholism and drug addiction and its attendant experiences. In 90 days, students will begin to gain insight into their experience, and the causes and consequences of their substance abuse and addictive behavior. Students learn to view their life from a broader perspective to include how their chemical dependency has affected others. Willingness to continue the process of change, personal growth, and recovery following completion is an essential component of the 90 Day Track.
Proof of Life Path: 7 Months
This is a more in-depth track, which is recommended for those with long histories of drug and alcohol addiction; those with multiple relapses and for the young who need to learn many things for the first time. In seven months, students begin to internalize that life is a gift that is not to be wasted. Students participate in at least five intensive workshops and have an extended setting in which to process and practice new skills. Several family workshops are available in this track in which students can seriously begin to reconcile relationships with those who have been affected by their behaviors. This seven-month track also affords the students the opportunity to reside on campus with their children.
