Circle of Trust Healing Center Philosophy

The Circle of Trust Healing Center is a second-level alcohol, drug, and trauma rehabilitation and cleansing center. We understand that for one to heal completely from addictions and trauma, they first must have access to a safe, nurturing, and supportive atmosphere completely removed from the many demands of their daily lives. We can become used to seeing to the needs of everyone except ourselves, so when a client walks through the doors of the Circle of Trust Center, they know this time is for them alone. Our responsive and specialized staff see to our client’s individual needs to release, to recover, and to regenerate their body, mind, spirit, and emotions.

Areas of Specialization

  • Holistic Therapy
    Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.

  • Creative Arts Therapy
    Writing, making art or engaging in theater can be deeply therapeutic for people working to recover from addiction. Many facilities offer one or several forms of creative arts therapy as a way to help patients learn to express their feelings in productive ways.

Review by Contributors


Overlooking the Rogue Valley in southwestern Oregon is Circle of Trust Healing Center, a substance and trauma recovery center. Offering various holistic detoxification programs and individualized treatment plans built around integrative, one-on-one, and group therapies, this nature-centric facility takes a psycho-spiritual approach in restoring mind, body, and spirit.


A product of three decades of development, the Circle of Trust Recovery Model is a 12-step exploration that is comparable to A.A. 12-Step and SMART Recovery programs, but also has a holistic approach to it. Clients are paired up with advocates, who help develop and manage their treatment plans, while master’s level therapists provide daily one-on-one guidance and bi-weekly Skype calls. In tandem with the Circle of Trust Recovery Model, clients partake in an assortment of naturopathic, psychological, and integrative therapies, including acupuncture, biofeedback, creative expressions therapy, and yoga.

The center’s holistic detox is a 30, 60 or 90-day program where clients cleanse their body from toxic residues through various treatments such as colonics, hydrotherapy, exercise, or nutrition plans. A family unit assessment and diagnosis is also readily available.

Prior to graduation, clients are expected to make “readiness to leave treatment” presentations to staff and other clients. Alumni are assigned a mentor and buddy for follow-ups and aftercare planning, as the center maintains a close-knit community, opening its doors regularly for celebration meals and other events.


Circle of Trust Healing Center’s director and founder is a certified therapist and practitioner of holistic somatic-oriented counseling for over 30 years. The center has a small staff of certified, master’s level counselors, some of whom have prior experience working with addiction and Spanish-speaking individuals.

A gourmet chef prepares meals daily, and special dietary requests must be noted during the intake process to be accommodated.


Residents at Circle of Trust Healing Center are surrounded by nature and farmland. Offering sweeping views of the nearby city of Ashland and Oregon’s mountain ranges, the private, 140-acre campus maintains the rustic and open architecture of the former church ranch, with wood paneling lining its ceilings and indigenous art covering its walls. There’s a two-story glass greenhouse, nearby lavender gardens, and a 5,000-square foot barn with stables for equine therapy. In addition, the center makes use of geothermal, solar, and wind energy to generate heat throughout the building.


The two clients polled by to date gave positive feedback. During their eight-week stay, alum T.A. considered the center’s “beautiful, calm, and nurturing atmosphere” ideal for helping clients focus intently on their recovery “without the distractions of everyday life.” James, the other alum, called the facility’s therapists “really caring excellent people,” telling others: “Listen to the therapist in group therapy she does amazing trauma work. I am a man of high standards. I would choose Circle of trust over again. You will not be disappointed.”


In addition to sharing perfect five-star ratings for the center’s treatment effectiveness, accommodations, and meals, three staff members each commented at length about what exactly makes this recovery program so unique.

“The strengths of the Circle of Trust Healing Center are endless,” wrote N.B., a staff member. “They take a personalized approach to each client, spending the time to [assess] the needs of individual clients. Their holistic approach goes above and beyond...”

While A.J. considered the center “ideal for people in recovery to take seriously the steps to health which require self-introspection, quiet, and dedication,” J.B., the third reviewer, celebrated the center’s “unmatched” staff-to-client ratios, its “ubiquitously client-centered” approach,” and, addressing those coming from afar, the region’s “fresh air and comfortable, dry weather.” “Needless to say, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity,” J.B. claimed.


There is no information provided by the center regarding its treatment costs, yet it does accept most major insurances and early speculation estimated the recovery program would charge “more than $30,000 for a month’s stay.”

Wow, I have seen and been to many treatment facilities across the USA. I have never experienced anything like this. The level of treatment is 5 star all the way. Compassionate doctors and staff who tend to every need. Very Highly recommend this rehab.

I did attend Circle of Trust in November time. Before I attended Circle of Trust, I went to a different rehab for 3 days and it was terrible and unprofessional. It took me a long time to find another rehab. One woman there is an excellent caring therapist and she truly cares for the clients. Two of the women day staff members are really caring excellent people. They work really hard to provide the needs for us. I took the place for granted. I am in a very dark place and while I was there I was getting better slowly but wasn't ready to leave. The staff worked really hard to try and get my insurance to pay for longer but they wouldn't and never met me and believed they knew what was best for me and I had to leave because they knew and I knew I wasn't ready to leave because I had a lot of healing to do. I would like to come back and even though it gets really cold but the place is really beautiful and its in a beautiful city and I miss it dearly. I felt very safe. Listen to the therapist in group therapy she does amazing trauma work. I am a man of high standards. I would choose Circle of trust over again. The group therapy is very small. I brought my Golden retriever and I never seen him so happy in Rehab. You will not be disappointed.

Circle of Trust provided me with the tools I need to successfully navigate a challenging mental health crisis. The center's beautiful, calm, and nurturing atmosphere were soothing and staying at the center for a full eight weeks allowed me to focus exclusively on my healing journey without the distractions of everyday life. The Journey to Completion is a practice (not a magic pill) so some degree of self motivation and self discipline helps. She has assembled a great team of warm, compassionate and talented healers who are poised to help many more. I would strongly recommend Circle of Trust Healing Center to anyone searching for new ways to be alive in the world.

The Circle of Trust Healing Center is a once in a lifetime experience! Nowhere else will you find healing coming from so many avenues. For starters the staff to client ratios here are unmatched! This cannot be overstated, especially for those who have been to other treatment facilities that treat clients like numbers. The theoretical orientations of the therapists are ubiquitously client-centered, meaning that each individual receives a high degree of personalized treatment and attention to unique needs. Here at the center each person is given the opportunity to reconnect with their higher (spiritual) self while developing tangible skills, self-awareness, and Recovery IQ. In addition to that are highly skilled yoga teachers, massage therapists, saunas, and a host of other state-of-the-art detoxing options. Each of the two chefs delivers their own style of healthful, organic food that is nothing short of captivating and delicious at each meal. Each day spent at the CTHC is enriched by the most fascinating and enchanting views of Southern Oregon’s Rogue Valley. Those who are not local should also know about the fresh air and comfortable, dry weather in this area. And last, but certainly not least is the beauty of the facility itself. Attention to detail and quality is present every square inch of the large center and is healing by its own right. Needless to say, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

For many reasons, this center is ideal for people in recovery to take seriously the steps to health which require self introspection, quiet, and dedication. Quite simply, there are few places that are truly dedicated to the depth of healing required to make such a major change. First and foremost is the deeply caring staff, who are training in the trauma healing Complete Recovery model as designed and offered by the inspiring executive director of the Center.

The strengths of the Circle of Trust Healing Center are endless. They take a personalized approach to each client, spending the time to asses the needs of individual clients. Their holistic approach goes above and beyond - with in-depth cleansing, delicious healthy meals, and spa treatments. I have been continuously impressed by the high level of care and expertise that the founder and director of this center offers. The warm environment created by the staff offers a true place of healing and recovery. The food at this center goes above and beyond expectations.
