Capstone Treatment Center Philosophy
The Capstone Mission is to provide a highly effective treatment experience to give residents and families the best opportunity to make a paradigm shift in their life’s direction – to recovery. The success of our treatment approach is in the synergy of professionally excellent therapy in a Christ-centered environment, delivered by professionally excellent individuals who live Christ-centered lives. The Capstone therapy experience treats residents’ addiction(s) as well as the underlying psychological-emotional-relational-spiritual problems. As far as God is concerned, Capstone takes residents where they are, from atheist to devout believer, and simply cultivates spirituality from that point, at the resident’s pace, as we develop relationships and implement our Core Model of therapy.

The spiritual aspect of the program is critical. The concern that is shown not only for the resident but for the family as well was also important. I think a lot of treatment centers tend to deal with the individual and maybe place blame on the parents or other family but never really get in to that family connection and see what is really going on there and help family members see what needs to change.—Mom from Michigan
I appreciated the core model. You put out the entire fire. The individual approach and the individual therapy were important. The canine therapy, I take pride in teaching my dog and it makes me feel good. It also is a good break in the day. Many of us have trouble concentrating for long periods of time. It is good to get outside and be with our dogs and it helps with responsibility. The staff here is encouraging and challenging like in the weight workout. The work out in general was important, I came in looking terrible and now I have gained 25 pounds and I am much healthier.”—Resident from Texas
I grew in myself image. I drew close to God and learned that He has a plan for me no matter what I do or what I’ve done and I opened up. I was able to open up with people and learn everything from dating to just how to live a normal life. I can be sober and with sober friends and you can enjoy life that way.—Resident from Michigan
You gave us a lot of direction; you really equipped us to bring him home. If you didn’t do that I don’t think that anybody could make it. You helped us change our way of doing things and to change the things that we need to change in our own lives as parents was important.—Mom from Michigan
