Azure Acres has been providing life-changing addiction treatment services for more than 55 years. Of course, our programming has evolved through the decades to reflect evidence-based improvements in the science of addiction treatment, but our commitment to providing the highest quality of care remains as strong today as it did when we accepted our first resident in 1959. By providing person-focused treatment that is based on the time-tested principles and practices of the 12-step recovery model, we have been able to help more than 20,000 men and women take their first steps toward a drug-free future.At Azure Acres, men and women in crisis have the opportunity to work with talented and experienced professionals, most of whom have personal experience with addiction and recovery. This combination of professional expertise, personal understanding, and a decades-long dedication to quality care makes Azure Acres a unique and effective option for men and women who desire to escape the constraints of substance abuse and chemical dependency.
At Burkwood Treatment Center, our philosophy of treatment is based upon the understanding that alcoholism (also called by different names, including “chemical dependency,” “addiction,” or even “Reward Deficiency Syndrome”) is a chronic, progressive disease that can be diagnosed and treated, and that abstinence is the beginning of permanent recovery. Most importantly, that recovery is a Way of Life!We understand that getting help is often the hardest step toward sobriety and we work diligently to provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere to each person who chooses to begin recovery with us. We honor the unique experiences, voices, and strengths that each participant brings to the treatment process, and we endeavor to incorporate these elements into treatment whenever possible. Also, we place a premium on ensuring that all participants and their family members are treated with dignity and respect.A cornerstone of our program is the knowledge that accepting personal responsibility for wellness is a key to lasting sobriety. In the words of Bill Wilson, “The essence of all growth is a willingness to make a change for the better and then an unremitting willingness to shoulder whatever responsibility this entails.”At Burkwood, we recognize that many people with this disease fall into the pattern of managing their illness instead of managing their recovery. In other words, we recognize that the best “Relapse Prevention Plan” is a “Strong Recovery Plan” based on years of evidence delineating the recovery process.The ultimate objective at Burkwood Treatment Center is for each participant to achieve his or her treatment goals and develop the recovery skills and strategies that will support long-term recovery. By teaching participants and family members about the nature of the disease and empowering our participants to effectively manage their associated symptoms, we help them to place themselves in the best possible position to successfully pursue happier and healthier lives, free from the biphasic cycle of the illness.
