Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) April 20, 2012
Burning Tree, a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility in Texas, has created a new alumni program to strengthen its connection to former clients and provide more ways more alumni to remain actively involved after successful completion of the program. These men and women, many who have returned home to locations outside of Texas, will be invited to reconnect, contribute stories and participate in renewal events coordinated by Burning Tree to showcase their recovery in action and inspire others to follow the same path.
The overall success of Burning Tree’s program has been documented by a four-year study that shows 73 percent of those who completed a Continuum of Care remain sober today. The results overshadow those of short-term programs elsewhere in which only 31 percent of clients maintain sobriety for one continuous year. One key difference in the programs stems from an approach created specifically to break the cycle of chronic relapse, which can lead those with drug or alcohol dependence from one rehab stint to another without lasting results.
Alumni qualified to join to the new program will be contacted directly by Burning Tree and given information on how to participate. They will also have access to special features and discover new ways to connect to other alumni. Celebrating milestones of sobriety, joining local events, and discovering recovery and referral resources will be other important aspects of the alumni program.
Testimonials, written and recorded, will be a way for alumni to give back to Burning Tree. In addition to a testimonial page on the Burning Tree website, a video portal page allows visitors to the site to hear directly from alumni about their experiences at the Burning Tree lodge and ranch. These insightful messages are a valuable part of marketing a treatment center nationwide, allowing potential clients to make the decision to select long-term rehabilitation in a well-informed manner.
The alumni program ultimately aims to create a recovery community post-treatment, one that is shared virtually as well as in person through the creation of local chapters.
