Stonegate Center for Men Philosophy
We believe addiction is an issue of the heart. When a man is living in the fullness of his calling, knows his purpose, & understands God's vision for his life he is unlikely to use substances. We believe addiction starts as an attempt to medicate a wound. Usually that wound is something based in deep pain, shame, or fear. Most often it has been suppressed for so long that it is hard for the addict to recognize the effect on his life.
We believe that these wounds/deeper issues of the heart are the things that need to be addressed for true freedom from addiction. Spiritually, we introduce men to a God that loves them unconditionally. Mentally, our licensed therapists help them sort out the tangles in our clients lives & offer new solutions to their struggles. Physically, Our Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselors address the nuts & bolts of addiction. They educate clients about the physical effects that drugs & alcohol have on our lives. They also address how to identify triggers & manage cravings. Ultimately we believe freedom is found in Christ. At Stonegate, God uses willing men He has equipped to speak the truth in love in to restore sanity to the broken.
Areas of Specialization
Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Stonegate offers aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc. Trevor's House is a sober living program run and operated by Stonegate to ensure a consistent continuum of care for our clients. While we do not require sober living, we have seen a steady rise in the length of sobriety from those who are willing to complete a sober living program.

ABOUT STONEGATE CENTER
Located in the small town of Azle, Texas, northwest of Fort Worth, Stonegate Center is a Christian-based drug and alcohol addiction treatment program for adult men. Individuals struggling with substance abuse and its effects come to Stonegate from across the country seeking restoration and support through spirituality and community. Detox is not provided on site.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Treatment incorporates cognitive behavioral therapy, life skills lessons, 12-step practices, and what the facility describes as a “Christ-centered approach to treating addiction.” The goal for clients is spiritual freedom from addiction, and the Stonegate Center philosophy emphasizes the importance of open-mindedness for long-term recovery.
The intake process includes medical and personal history assessment, noting clients’ past treatment and requiring a physical exam and lab work to determine co-occurring medical conditions. Clients needing medical support for detox are referred to a local hospital, followed by 90 days of treatment at Stonegate Center.
The process of integrating Christianity and directing, in the program’s terms, “the resident toward dependence on God” are designed to help men address underlying issues such as anger, loneliness, and shame. Residents work with each other and counselors to develop trust and practice accountability in community.
Therapeutic practices prioritize 12-step practices and include group and individual counseling sessions, family participation in weekly process groups, and relapse prevention. Classes in skills such as communication, conflict resolution, and stress management help to address common issues related to men and addiction. Additional education and practice in cooking, cleaning, and budgeting help to prepare residents for transition to life outside of rehab. Fun recreational activities are also included in the program’s routine.
Many men coming to Stonegate Center struggle with relational or legal problems along with substance abuse, and staff members work with individuals to address these with dignity and urgency. Marriage counseling is also available to clients in recovery.
A staff of over a dozen includes master’s level licensed counselors, licensed chemical dependency counselors, case managers, and a medical doctor. Several staff members have struggled with addiction and have years of personal recovery. Among the staff’s varied backgrounds are military service and service as a hospital chaplain.
