About the Facility
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.
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.
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.

ABOUT CAPSTONE TREATMENT CENTER
In a rural area six miles northwest of Searcy, Ark., Capstone Treatment Center offers Christian faith-based residential treatment for young males ages 14 to 26. It's among the 40.7 percent treatment facilities in Arkansas to offer programming tailored to adolescents, and among the 27.1 percent of facilities in Arkansas to provide specialized programming for young adults.
Capstone treats substance use disorder, as well as other process addictions including sex, pornography, and video games. It's one of only 19 treatment centers in Arkansas (just 16.1 percent of all facilities in the state) to offer treatment for internet use disorder.
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 group therapy, individual therapy, family counseling, and addiction education. Capstone is also among the 39.8 percent of treatment facilities in Arkansas to provide specialized programming for clients with co-occurring disorders.
Capstone features a very distinctive canine therapy program. At the beginning of treatment, every resident can receive a puppy to care for, which they may take home with them upon successful completion of the program.
There is a family week once per month. 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-level and PhD-licensed professional counselors and therapists. There is also an on-site chef and nutrition consultant. All staff members are active 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 equipped with front porches and private showers. There’s also an on-site fitness room and a communal mess hall.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
All four former clients polled by Rehabs.com to date gave Capstone positive feedback and described it as a highly effective treatment program with dedicated staff. "Capstone is a Christ-centered facility with excellent, well trained, compassionate, effective staff. Their model is very effective," K.G. wrote in a representative review.
The rehab also faired well on secondary sites, where it earned an average rating of 4.6 out of five stars based on 50 Google reviews and a 4.9 out of five star rating based on the opinions of 79 individuals on Facebook, which the facility may manage.
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
The majority of loved ones polled by Rehabs.com to date (six out of seven) gave Capstone highly positive feedback, describing it as a life-changing program for their child. In a representative review, J.K. wrote: "Everything about this program is passionate about the success of these young men. The education, therapy, structure and compassion they provided my son will never be forgotten."
Loved ones on Google and Facebook agreed. All of the parents who left comments praised the facility, including Jeannette who wrote on Google: "What a wonderful facility with outstanding staff, beautiful venue and Christ-centered focus! Capstone truly saved our son's life and he is now three years clean from multiple substance abuse."
While the amounts are not specified on the facility's website, Capstone does note that 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.
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.

D.M.I am concerned about the ages of the Therapists. Many are barely older than the patients. I am especially concerned about young women counseling young men ( a 25 year-old woman counseling a 19 year-old student). I volunteered with youth ministry when I was 24 and while I didn't realize it until later, several of the HS senior students had a crush on me. In retrospect, I would have been much more sensitive to that possibility, and certainly would not have spent any alone time with them, even innocently. I am concerned with two other things here: Their propensity to refer parents to sister facilities, which can cost up to $60,000 for treatment. They also told a friend whose son was there that if he (the parent) didn't go to the treatment facility (although not an addict), that he would not be able to see his son for the next 90 days while the son was at a halfway house. (also connected financially with the facility). The father was attending regular Christian counseling while working full-time in the home city. When he told the therapist that he didn't have the cash to pay for a 90-day treatment, she suggested "sell your house." There is also evidence that the therapist, who began counseling when she was 24 (now 30 and unmarried), has been sharing confidential information about one parent to the other---in other words, taking sides. Very destructive and unhelpful in healing. When the son played his guitar during quiet hours, he was told that he would have to stay an additional week. There is something not right here.
LauraWe will be forever grateful for Capstone. In a time of need we needed to find a place for our struggling son after exhausting everything we could think of to help him. Capstone helped our son in a way we could not and helped our family as a whole in the same way. We are now part of the Capstone family and have attended two reunions as our son is closing in on his two years of sobriety post graduation from Capstone. Capstone has blessed our family and our son beyond measure with their love and expertise. They are truly gifted in what they do with love and expertise in all areas at Capstone.
JkEverything about this program is passionate about the success of these young men. The education, therapy, structure and compassion they provided my son will never be forgotten.
TriciaOur son graduated from Capstone in 2017. We've been back twice for continuing care and they are improving the program and facilities all the time. The founder, therapists and staff are all very professional, well trained, and they care deeply about the job they're doing and the families they serve. The staff to client ratio is as advertised. Safety is taken very seriously. We recommend it highly.
LKLWe sent our 15 year old son to Capstone for pornography addiction, reckless sexual behavior, and gender dysphoria. The center was recommended to us by a friend who is a certified CSAT and Christian counselor. It not only met our expectations but we returned home with the son we felt we lost. They really love these boys and get to the root of their issues. The therapy is top notch. Parents need to be prepared to participate and do their own work as well which is a vital part of the process.
LynnI can not say enough about the care our son received here. 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. They not only gave him the tools to cope and survive but they gave us the tools to success too. It was a life changing experience for all of us and we will forever be grateful that we found Capstone.
SSI was very impressed with the counseling I received from Capstone. They have very kind and helpful counselors who are sincere in wanting to help you succeed. The price was reasonable and the help I received was worth every penny. If you are looking for a loving, helpful, and encouraging counselors then Capstone is the place for you.
CABOn my, it is my heart that was treated while grandson was at Capstone --knew he was in a safe place with therapist and a leader who truly knows and loves those boys in a fatherly:God given way. These people care and the work is excellent. Tough and boys are not entirely happy to be there but at the end of our geandson\'s 3 months he looked vigorous, fresh faced and generally in great health. The placing of him at Capstone was hardest and best thing we have ever done for him. Hopefully one day he will recognize the change we saw in him. Also once the son has left Capstone the family is not left hanging. As there are weekly calls and a reunion which is therapy and these people are available -- just leads me to believe they mean it when they say \"we pray for your boy and we love him\" Their puppy program is an amazing gift of responsibility and a live warm being for the son to love and be loved back unconditionally. For us Capstone was recommended by a therapist and pastor--so blessed to have our son there. The family week was grueling and emotional for the adults but absolutely fantastic. Wish I could do this every 5 years for myself and family. The price is worth every dollar because our son is a new boy. We are hopeful and praying on our knees for us to be God\'s instrument rearing this boy. We found the help given us for the return home to be in keeping with common sense, the Holy Bible and directional to wholeness for the entire family. Our hearts are mending and we are hopeful for a healed son. It still is a difficult road and trenches along our way filled with boulders to climb but hope is now in our hearts and we continue to reread the helpful information given us by Adrian. We do see light in what was a dark window. Highly recommend Capstone.
kgCapstone is a Christ-centered facility with excellent, well trained, compassionate, effective staff. Their model is very effective. Their website does an excellent job of explaining what they do and the knowledge and science behind their model for addiction and trauma therapy in young men.
NickCTC was amazing in all aspects. I wish those struggling with addiction could all experience a place as such. At CTC something one will find of immense value is the therapy module and licensed therapists on staff. 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.
CSThis is a great Christian therapy program, very professional staff. They do really great work.
