Phase 2

Students continue all activities from Phase 1 along with an extensive educational component. They are coached on submitting applications, selecting appropriate courses, and communicating with professors. Students take a maximum of 12 college credits per semester, and are closely monitored to ensure success. Money management is taught through budgeting with a bi-weekly stipend for 3 months. Students are coached on writing resumes, pursuing careers, continuing their educational goals, as well as acquiring employment.

Phase 2

  • Burning Tree West provides long-term treatment solutions to alcoholism, drug addiction and substance abuse that combine the fundamentals of the 12-step program with individual coaching designed to meet the needs of each resident.
  • Recovery – Students continue working the steps with their sponsor, and attend weekly group therapy. Required activities include five 12-step meetings off campus, home group participation, and a service commitment. Students are supported in applying the 12-step principles in their daily lives.
  • Education/Work – Students are encouraged to take 12 credit hours and maintain a GPA of 2.75 while attending the University of Arizona or Pima Community College. If students are not enrolled full-time in college courses they may work full-time and attend school part-time. BTW staff will assist the students through the process of getting familiar with the school environment, assessment testing, class selection, registration, study skills, time management, and tutoring. The Education Coordinator collects the syllabi, and secures quarterly evaluations directly from professors. Through the assistance of the Burning Tree West program, our students average above a 3.0 GPA. Students are coached on writing resumes, pursuing careers, and acquiring employment. Money management is acquired through budgeting with a bi-weekly stipend of $250.00 for a total of 3 months during Phase 2.
  • Accountability – All students submit weekly activity schedules listing school, 12-step meetings, work, and social time. They are required to attend three community meetings, and two in-house meetings per week. The students will face life skill challenges of budgeting, time management, household duties, academic success, and maintaining healthy social relationships with the support from the BTW coaching staff.
  • Family Workshops – There will be a second workshop held during Phase 2. This workshop focuses on specific issues faced by individual families.
