Located on a serene hilltop outside Ashland, Oregon Circle of Trust Healing Center is a residential substance abuse treatment program that opened in late 2015. Circle of Trust follows a holistic approach that includes the unique Completion Recovery model as designed by founder Norma Burton, a PhD with over 30 years experience in therapy. Providing a variety of alternative, non-traditional and integrated modalities, the model focuses on the mind-body-spirit connection to healing.

Accommodations and Food

Set on 140 spectacular acres, accommodations are luxurious and designed with holistic healing in mind. Solar and wind power and utilized to heat each space, including the floors. Each of the 15 clients sleeps in a private, comfortably furnished bedroom with a view, while large shared bathrooms include spa tubs.

The sweeping great room functions as dining room, dance hall and meeting space, with giant windows and circular balcony. The high, carved and vaulted ceilings contain stained-glass skylights and each space has been carefully designed and crafted. A Chef prepares healthy, nutritious meals in the large gourmet kitchen, though clients are allowed to cook if they like.

Treatment and Staff

Individualized treatment plans are created for each client after a comprehensive evaluation. Physical, emotional, mental and nutritional recommendations are made, with recommendations addressing each specific issue. Daily, individual guidance is offered through the Completion Recovery model, with group and individual psychotherapy integrated several times a week. Clients attend sessions that focus on substance use, neurobiology and nutritional education and helping them make healthier lifestyle choices while learning relapse prevention techniques. Trauma-informed care can also be included in programs, with family system intervention and assessment included as needed.

Treating the physical body, clients may cleanse and heal using the infrared sauna, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, colonics and nutritional supplements. A certified nutritionist supervises holistic detox, as no medications are used. This process includes a rigorous diet and exercise regime. Similarly, dual diagnosis support is offered exclusively through holistic means, though certain prescription medications may be allowed. The list of integrated therapies is long, but includes acupuncture, biofeedback, equine therapy, massage, yoga, chiropractic and creative expression.

Guided by an advocate, mentor and buddy, clients are supported and assisted through treatment and aftercare, reaching out to these various people when questions or concerns arise. They are required to present their readiness to leave treatment to staff and other clients. The team at Circle of Trust is highly qualified and includes Master’s-level counselors and CADCs.


Outdoors, clients can explore a maze made out of lavender, hiking trails, pond and spring, or hang out in the tropical two-story conservatory complete with banana-bearing trees.

Aftercare includes bi-weekly group and weekly individual calls with staff, introduction to a recovery community that may include 12-step meetings and attendance at alumni events.

In Summary

This brand-new facility in a beautiful, remote location offers up an impressive array of holistic treatment modalities. Although the costs reflects the high quality of personalized services, most insurance covers a portion of treatment. This is an excellent choice for those seeking a refuge from their past and a chance to heal and recharge in a comfortable space.

  1. Stay far far away from Norma Burton! She is a fraud! She is very unethical and whatever education she may have, she does not adhere to legal and ethical standards!

  2. I left this place wanting to commit suicide. It’s a beautiful place, with fantastic food and great accommodations, but it’s a cult. The woman who owns it is a terrible person. She’s a businesswoman who has memorized a bunch of ancient tribal facts and teaches it to people who start worshipping the ground she walks on with blanketed eyes of awe saying “Yes Master. Anything you say, I will believe and do.” This center goes up there with Scientology. When I left I told the woman that I wanted to kill myself and her answer was a smile saying, “Well, everyone has to die sometime.”
    One of the people who work there told me that 2 clients had left and committed suicide and I know why.
    They didn’t have horses or colonics or a chiropractor. The man who ran the place was a business major who said he wants to own a gym but is stuck there for the paycheck. He cares about money and makes fun of the people who are seeking out help. He should not be running a dual diagnosis center for the fact that he has no understanding or compassion for anyone.
    If you need a place to rest for rehab with no major responsibilities then this is the perfect place. The house is beautiful, as are Scientology buildings. If you are weak and need a cult to follow, this is also the perfect place for you. If you want to be laughed at by the staff for your mistakes then this is the place for you. They make fun of the clients right to their faces.
    Good vacation though.
