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.

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.
