Alcoholism Treatment & Drug Rehab Program For Those Who've Relapsed

It's Not About Getting Fixed , It's About Getting Well

Addiction Treatment Program Specifically For Those Who Have Relapsed

Our relapse recovery program is specifically designed for men who have experienced relapse after significant recovery time or, who’ve been to treatment before. Treatment for a man in a relapse situation needs to be more engaging and in-depth than what he experienced before. We expect more from the men who join this RR program because they’ve been down the recovery road before – they know how to share, they are familiar with the 12-step concepts, and they’ve usually worked on some of their issues previously. It’s not uncommon for men to enter this program after several stints in traditional treatment programs, quickly finding excitement that they are not doing the same stuff they did in programs before. We dig deeper, and work faster than traditional treatment programs. Our Recovery Renewal Program patients have very little involvement with the men who are new to the recovery process in our Newcomers Program. We keep these communities separate, even in different living quarters, to ensure that we minimize distractions.

If a relapse guy, who’s still trying to figure out his own sobriety, has too much contact with a Newcomer he may become tempted to mentor them and take them on as a pet project – and that typically doesn’t work out well for either of them. Newcomers tend to see relapse guys as “experts” and seek advise from them and while guys who’ve “been there before” have insight and something valuable to offer, we try to moderate involvement between the two communities to ensure that everyone stays focused on themselves.

What is the Recovery Renewal Program Like?

After medical observation and/or medically assisted detox to safely and slowly remove you from the drugs and alcohol, you’ll be immersed in a residential / inpatient program with a group of peers who are on a similar journey. Together, with the guidance of professionals from both academic and recovery backgrounds, you’ll unravel the threads of the life traps that have kept you from the new way of life that recovery promises, and you’ll learn new coping skills to replace those traps. During a stay that averages 35 days, you’ll be immersed in a schedule that keeps your hands busy and your mind occupied; we’ll load you up with relapse prevention methods and tools; we’ll help you build back your self-esteem through group and individual therapy; and we’ll offer your family a part in the healing process as well, so that when your journey here is complete, you can return home a new person – a whole person – with the instruments you need, and the aftercare that Cornerstone provides, to stay clean and maintain a recovery that’s both fulfilling and bountiful.

Your needs are different than those who are going through treatment for the first time; we recognize those needs as unique, and we work with you to develop an individual treatment plan that addresses them on physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual levels that may not have been explored in your previous experiences with drug rehab. We’ll help you address the trauma and resentments that act as mile markers in your life, those moments that your drug use has never been able to erase or anesthetize, no matter how long or how much you’ve tried.

Know this: With Cornerstone’s Recovery Renewal program, you don’t have to run from that pain any longer. You can face it, in an environment that’s cathartic and supportive, and make peace with it. Because only then will you be able to truly know peace and find a way of life you never thought possible.

It’s an intense program, but if you’ve tried to stay clean in the past and have been unsuccessful, even after previous residential treatment stays and 12 Step program attendance, it’s what you need. We know this, because at Cornerstone of Recovery, we’ve been treating addicts and alcoholics from all walks of life for almost three decades, and we know well the triggers and issues that stand in the way of successful long-term recovery. With the tools the Recovery Renewal program offers, as well as guidance in how to implement them in your daily life so that they become second nature, we will help you find that recovery.

The staff, Counselors, and Therapist's are all amazing and truly caring. I will miss so many of them. The food isn't the greatest but they do occasionally hit one out of the ball park. Especially the brownies. The Medical staff is badly understaffed. My only complaint is they sent me to two out of network doctor appointments while I was in R. And R. I've tried talking to many people but keep getting brushed off. But this is just my experience. If your looking for your best Chance of sobriety. This is the place. You learn so much about yourself and why we do the things we do. And how to change those behaviors. I highly recommend Corner Stone of Recovery.

I cannot begin to express my gratitude to Cornerstone. I went there the last time for me in Sept.2001 and left in March 2002 and because of the treatment that I received I have been clean and sober for 21 years. I took a early retirement from the railroad and became a substance abuse counselor because I wanted what the staff at that time had and to do for others what they did for me. Thank You Cornerstone. If you are reading this and on the fence look no further because they are the best especially if you are serious about Recovery.

The staff is second to none. most of the councilors had been in my shoes and that alone was comforting. Every employee from the nurses to the kitchen staff seemed so genuine. There may be nicer, newer facilities around the country but i would pick the staff at Cornerstone over any of them.
