Phase 1

Students are immersed in the foundation of sobriety using a 12-step recovery process. They will begin working with a qualified sponsor selected for them by our staff. 12-Step immersion allows students to learn, speak, and incorporate the language and principles of recovery. Burning Tree West’s curriculum includes a strong academic component, individual and group therapy, life skills training, community service, effective time management, and work ethic coaching. Students can take a maximum of one online class during this phase.
