Capstone Treatment Center Philosophy
Capstone Treatment Center is a faith-based drug and alcohol rehab for adolescent and young adult males. The residential rehab treats drug addiction, alcohol abuse, sex addiction, trauma, and other behavioral health issues with a Christian-centric approach. Based in Searcy, Arkansas, Capstone aims to treat each client’s addiction, as well as the underlying psychological, emotional, relational, and spiritual problems that contribute to substance abuse.
Areas of Specialization
Process Abuse Treatment
Not all addictions involve mood-altering chemicals. The term “process addiction” describes the unhealthy use of behaviors (including eating, gambling, sexual activity, shopping, internet use, etc.) that has spiraled out of control and into the realm of addiction.
Client & Family Support Groups
Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.

ABOUT CAPSTONE TREATMENT CENTER
Capstone Treatment Center offers Christian faith-based residential addiction treatment for males ages 13 to 25 in a remote, rural facility six miles northwest of Searcy, Ark. The center treats a wide variety of substance abuse problems, as well as other addictions including sex, pornography, and video games. The facility also provides treatment for co-occurring disorders, such as anxiety, depression and, PTSD. Medical detox is not available on-site.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
The founder of Capstone has developed his own treatment method known as The Core Model. This multidisciplinary approach targets anything that hampers intimacy with the self, God, and loved ones. Treatment lasts approximately 90 days and combines 12-step work with individual therapy, family therapy, and addiction education.
Capstone features a very distinctive canine therapy program. At the beginning of treatment, every resident receives a puppy to care for, which they take home with them upon successful completion of the program.
There is a family week once per month, during which parents participate in an intense week of therapy and connection with other parents. In the second half of treatment, residents assemble a “Weekly Game Plan Booklet” that outlines personalized strategies for maintaining sobriety after graduation. Before graduation, there is an additional family retreat with a special focus on siblings.
At the end of treatment, clients continue to receive aftercare services in the form of weekly counseling sessions.
Capstone’s treatment team includes master’s and PhD-level licensed professional counselors and therapists. There is also an on-site chef and nutrition consultant. All staff members participate in the Christian faith.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Capstone’s main building, a 4,000-square-foot rock and cedar lodge, is in a secluded, wooded area. Residents are grouped by age and sleep in shared cabins that are monitored throughout the night. The cabins are equipped with front porches and private showers.
There’s also an on-site fitness room and a communal mess hall. Ropes courses and other outdoor activities make use of the surrounding wilderness. For younger clients, an education coordinator helps to facility coursework.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Four alumni have reviewed Capstone, giving the facility almost entirely five out of five star reviews. Reviewers praised the faith-based approach and effectiveness of their treatment. C.S. provided strong ratings in every category, and wrote to Rehabs.com: “This is a great Christian therapy program, very professional staff. They do really great work.” Nick felt that the program got to the root of his problem. He added: “The marriage and family therapy model, along with EMDR and many other therapy techniques provide a unique and effective path to not just sobriety, but getting to the root of serious issues and trauma.”
On Facebook the facility received 4.9 out of five stars from 44 reviews to date. Several alumni were thankful for the program and the dog they got to go home with. Alum Nate wrote: “It's a piece of Heaven given to Earth that came with Angels to save lives. I am forever grateful for two trips that each grew me close to Him and forever saved me. Miss and love the Staff, my Dog and A.” Alum Jeremy added: “Capstone was nothing short of life changing for both myself and my family. I can honestly say I've never met a group of people who love and care more for people than the therapists and staff at Capstone. They took me right in and made me feel like I was at home even though I came from over 2,000 miles away. One of the biggest things that Capstone did for me was allow me to figure who I truly am at my very core instead of who I allowed culture to influence me to be.”
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
Three loved ones also gave five out of five star reviews for treatment effectiveness, accommodations, and meals and nutrition. Loved ones cited how they were impressed with the care received. Parent Lynn wrote: “The knowledge, commitment and compassion of this staff is beyond what anyone could hope for. They gave us back our son and saved his life.”
On Google, the facility received 3.8 out of five stars from 10 reviews to date, mostly from family members. Tim wrote: “Capstone was the pivotal part in our son's recovery. Their program is comprehensive and well thought out, but flexible when needed. I'm VERY thankful for the work that they did with our son.”
Program fees cover all treatment and living expenses, apart from incidentals including medications, books, and doctor visits. There is also an additional admission-assessment fee of $2,600. If a client leaves before their treatment is complete, Capstone will provide a reimbursement at the daily rate, minus a $2,500 early withdrawal fee.
Capstone accepts insurance, but clients and their families must work with insurance companies themselves; the facility will not process the claim. Financing is available through Prosper Healthcare Lending.
