Dallas, TX (PRWEB) May 03, 2011

Burning Tree, known for its work in long-term drug and alcohol rehabilitation for the past 11 years, with a focus on chronic relapse cases, recently put on an event at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, called “An Evening with Dr. Burns Brady.” The hallmark of the event was a lecture by Dr. Brady designed specifically for professionals in the addiction treatment and recovery industry. The talk, and its focus on a spiritual 12-step solution to a medical problem, was particularly fitting for those who have come know and refer to Burning Tree, as it has been a primary advocate in the treatment and recovery industry for full 12-step integration with clinical philosophy. Also speaking at the event was Brian Percox, a seasoned speaker on his own 12-step recovery experience. Percox warmed up a crowd over 100 people from Texas and around the country. “It was fantastic to see how many top-notch professionals took the time out to attend this event,” said Curt Maddon, CEO of Burning Tree, “I am honored to be part of such a great industry of people helping people and very grateful to Burns and Brian for speaking.”

Dr. Burns Brady is a national lecturer and well-respected expert in the addiction field. He is a family physician and an addictionologist who is certified by the American Society of Addiction Medicine and American Board of Family Practice. Dr. Brady is an addiction consultant for a 400-member men and women's homeless shelter, the Healing Place, which has been recognized as one of the top five residential addiction treatment programs in the United States. Dr. Brady has been in personal recovery for more than 30 years.

Dr. Brady recently retired as the Medical Director of the Kentucky Physicians Health Foundation-Impaired Physicians Program. He is a clinical instructor on alcoholism for the University of Louisville, University of Kentucky and Pikeville College. He has served as a consultant to the American Bar Association, the Kentucky Bar Association, the Kentucky Dental Association and the Kentucky Nurses Association on issues of professional impairment.

Maddon adds, “To have Dr. Brady join us for this event is a unifying thing, as his philosophy about addiction and its treatment and that of Burning Tree’s run so closely together. We were also honored by a talk Dr. Brady gave to our clients earlier in the day at our Burning Tree Ranch facility. He captivated them with his message, as it has such depth and weight. We could not be more grateful.”

Burning Tree has two long-term drug and alcohol rehabilitation treatment facilities located near Dallas and Austin, Texas, both licensed by the Texas Department of State Health Services. Audio recordings and supporting slides of the event will be made available soon. Further information on substance abuse treatment may be found at http://www.BurningTree.com .
