Cornerstone of Recovery Adult Residential Philosophy
Treatment places a patient on a course of continual change and helps develop healthy interdependent relationships with family, friends, co-workers and other recovering people. The foundation of treatment should be built on the most successful and available recovery model currently known – the principles of the 12 Steps of AA/NA. This program guides individuals through a process of self-examination and spiritual change which ultimately leads to long-term recovery. Much of our recovery programs are designed to assist our patients in this process of self-discovery in a safe, supportive environment. The staff must provide an environment that promotes trust, emotional risk taking, and acceptance of the need for honesty and continual change after treatment. Our recovery programs rely heavily on the concept of therapeutic community where hurting people gain strength and support from one another and can confront one another in a spirit of love and acceptance.
Areas of Specialization
Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
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.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY
More than 20 alumni were surveyed by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing, the majority of which offered Cornerstone’s adult residential program positive feedback. Satisfied former clients praised the compassionate staff and comprehensive curriculum, and four former clients even credited the facility with saving their lives. “Very effective program,” wrote alum Jon in a review representative of positive feedback. “They worked all areas of addiction : physical, mental, and spiritual. Cornerstone educated me and gave me the skills and tools to live in sobriety.”
The seven former clients who gave negative feedback complained about insurance issues, a lack of individual counseling, and poor holistic offerings.
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
The seven loved ones polled by Rehabs.com to date gave Cornerstone mixed reviews. When asked, on a scale from one to five, if they would recommend the facility, four respondents gave a rating of just one. Their major complaints included poor treatment tactics, high cost, and insurance issues. The three reviewers who complimented the facility told Rehabs.com that Cornerstone provided their loved ones with compassionate and effective treatment. “It's a family...they have a genuine concern/love for their clients. It shows,” wrote one loved one in a review representative of positive feedback.
WHAT STAFF SAY
More than a dozen staff polled by Rehabs.com gave their employer mostly positive reviews. They noted that having more than 90% of the staff in recovery was a strong asset, as was the compassion of the staff and the facility’s comprehensive programming. In a representative review, Stephanie described the facility’s atmosphere as “structured and professional, yet friendly and personal.” The one common complaint concerned the healthcare system in general, as at least three former clients noted that more insurance plans should cover addiction treatment.
A few staffers did note internal issues, most notably inadequate compensation and a high turnover rate.
According to the facility’s website, treatment at Cornerstone is covered by most health insurance plans, including those from Aetna, Cigna, United Health, and more. Medicare and Medicaid, as well as HMOs that have no out of network coverage, are not accepted.
