Recovery Renewal

The Recovery Renewal Residential Program (RR) was designed for individuals who have substantial knowledge about treatment and recovery but have been unable to maintain sobriety.

Alcohol & Drug Addiction Treatment Program For Those Who Have Relapsed

Relapse Recovery Program

For addicts and alcoholics who have been through treatment before, few things are more disheartening than a relapse.

Recovery literature reminds us, however, that there may be times when relapse lays the groundwork for complete freedom. At Cornerstone of Recovery, we understand how discouraged you probably feel to have stumbled and returned to old habits and ways of living, because for those of us who now work as part of Cornerstone’s staff, relapse is sometimes a part of our stories as well – but it’s most certainly not the final chapter.

If you find yourself having surrendered weeks, months or even years of abstinence to alcohol and drugs, know this: The Recovery Renewal Program at Cornerstone is unlike any other treatment method you’ll find. The failure you feel? The complete defectiveness you see in the mirror? The utter hopelessness and misery that accompanies your every waking moment? You’ll check them all at the door when you come to Cornerstone, because the primary purpose of our Recovery Renewal program is to restore you to sanity and your life to something you don’t think is possible when you’re staring into the abyss of addiction.

We Are Accepting New Patients

Addiction Doesn't Stop - And Neither Will We

The growing coronavirus pandemic is a serious threat to the health and safety of every American — but so is addiction. In 2017, overdose-related deaths claimed the lives of more than 70,000 people in this country. Alcohol-related deaths kill roughly 88,000 people a year in this country. These illnesses are chronic, progressive and fatal, and the need for recovery is just as pressing as it’s ever been. At Cornerstone of Recovery, we’re committed to our mission of giving those who suffer the opportunity to discover a new way of life, free from addiction — and without the stress of the current COVID-19 climate. Our doors remain open to those who need our help, but we’re taking preventative measures to screen incoming patients, protect those individuals already in our care and educate the Cornerstone community about ways to keep our campus as healthy as possible. Even in times of uncertainty, addiction doesn’t stop — and neither will we.

Three Reasons Why You Need to Call Today to Get Addiction and Alcoholism Treatment

  • We’re in the middle of great economic uncertainty. Unemployment rates reached their highest levels in history in April, which means COVID-19 took a catastrophic toll on the job market this spring. If you have a job — or even if you don’t, but you still have benefits provided by your previous place of employment — you’re fortunate. And you should take advantage of those benefits to get the help you need for a drug or alcohol problem today, because there’s no guarantee you’ll have the resources to do so down the road.


  • No one is truly certain what life in the time of coronavirus looks like going forward. Yes, there are still new cases being logged daily, and yes, it’s certainly a health concern for anyone and everyone. But if you’re struggling with addiction and alcoholism, you’re already sick — and the disease you’re battling is far more likely to claim your life than COVID-19. Overdose deaths kill more Americans annually than all combat deaths in the Vietnam War, and alcohol-related deaths claim 88,000 lives yearly. If you have an alcohol or drug problem, you’re more likely to become one of those statistics than a COVID-19 victim.


  • Putting it off for another day is no longer an option. You may tell yourself that it is … and you may have made it this far without treatment … but are you truly living? In our experience — and many of us who work at Cornerstone are in recovery ourselves — suffering from addiction and alcoholism is just existing. Our problems slowly get worse, our health slowly declines and we’re stuck in wreckage of our own making, until we’re faced with two choices: get help, or lose everything. Why wait until the latter when with a simple phone call, you can choose the former?

Relapse Is Part Of The Recovery Process For Some

Relapse is not a requirement, but it is part of the recovery process for many addicts, and when it is, the hopelessness and sense of failure that go hand-in-hand with addiction are only compounded. As part of the Recovery Renewal treatment path, our goal is to help you understand that you haven’t failed; instead, you have to dig a little deeper, with our guidance, to understand what went wrong and how to avoid repeating those mistakes. We don’t regurgitate the 12 Steps you know from meetings and previous trips through treatment; instead, we’ll help you to arrive at a better understanding of those Steps, and to do some serious soul-searching and self-examination to uncover, understand and deal with the underlying causes of your relapse.

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 from 28 to 30 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. All that’s required is for you to pick up the phone and reach out. We’re waiting.

Alcohol & Drug Addiction Treatment Services

The Path To Recovery Starts At Cornerstone

Medical Detoxification can be a critical time in a patient’s journey toward recovery because the symptoms of withdrawal can be difficult to manage and potentially life-threatening. A team of certified, competent and caring professionals work together to ensure that we provide the best medical care for our patients. The Medical Director prescribes detox medications to keep the patient safe and reasonably comfortable.

While receiving detoxification medications, patients also attend Acudetox groups utilizing a specific acupuncture protocol, psychoeducational groups, and experiential activities. However, detox patients are also given sufficient opportunity to relax and allow their bodies to begin the healing process. Patients on a detox protocol are monitored 24 hours a day and the typical length of detoxification is 3 to 5 days and may be longer depending on the severity of the patient’s withdrawal symptoms.

This unit is designed to support our patients as they enter treatment and begin to invest in their community of peers. An extensive battery of assessments is performed to identify the patient’s bio-psycho-social-spiritual strengths, needs, and barriers to recovery (such as chronic pain, dual diagnosis, trauma, or other co-occurring disorders). This comprehensive assessment process provides our medical and clinical teams with much of the information they need to build a treatment plan that is individualized for each patient.

Our NON-NARCOTIC PAIN MANAGEMENT PROGRAM offers solutions that eliminate and or reduce the dependence on medications to treat pain and improve treatment outcomes. We are able to reduce pain and improve the recovery process. We offer sound information and teach skills that the patient can use to improve coping, relaxation, mindfulness, nutrition, and much more. Some of the modalities we use are Reiki, Rubenfeld Synergy, Acupressure, Mindful Stretching, and Addiction Free Pain Management Education.

We believe healing occurs through direct experience. Experiential activities amplify the traditional therapeutic
modalities that are part of our milieu. Fitness, Meditation, Relaxation Therapy, Yoga, Spirituality Groups, Ropes Course, Mindfulness, Art Therapy, Drumming Circles, and community outings are some components of experiential healing at Cornerstone. Patients who participate in experiential therapies report reductions

Family Therapy is an integral part of all of the clinical programs at Cornerstone. Early on in the treatment process, we conduct a Family Questionnaire which allows family members and close personal friends to have input that impacts the patients treatment plan. When appropriate, there are Family Therapy sessions throughout the treatment process. These sessions are designed to work through relationship issues, enhance communication, educate the family about the disease of addiction and provide them with emotional support while their loved one is in treatment. Through this support, the family will gain knowledge about the treatment process and how they may be unknowingly supporting the addiction through co-dependent and enabling behaviors.

Family members will learn about how to engage in personal growth and change through various 12 step programs, so that the family can heal together trough the recovery process. Cornerstone requires that each patient complete Family Fundamentals, an intensive three-day family program designed to provide intensive education, group therapy, family therapy, 12 step meeting experience, and an opportunity to repair the damage caused by active addiction. Family members are strongly encouraged to attend the Family Fundamentals program along with the patient. Cornerstone also has a weekly family education group for family members and an ongoing support group for parents of young adults who are struggling with addiction or who have recently entered recovery

The Continuous Care Program upholds Cornerstone of Recovery’s treatment philosophy that chemical dependency is a chronic incurable disease that requires the consistent and continued attention of each patient for a lifetime. Recent scientific studies of the disease process have determined that full remission from active addiction does not occur until an individual has experienced at least 18 months of continuous sobriety, long after most intensive treatment programs have concluded.

In response to this knowledge, the Continuous Care Program provides services for a period of at least 18 months following treatment, to ensure that each patient has the opportunity for professional support throughout the early stages of their recovery. During this time, patients are encouraged to practice the skills and tools they learned and developed in treatment as they find their way back
into their home, work, and social environments. They are able to talk with Recovery Coaches and therapeutically
process the ups and downs they experience in sobriety. Active participation in the Continuous Care Program is vital in establishing a lifelong, solid recovery plan.

The Support Living Facility (SLF) provides a safe environment for patients to continue to learn and practice self-management and interpersonal relationship skills while solidifying their recovery program. It can take several months for individuals to become comfortable enough in their recovery to successfully move away from the environment where they got sober. The SLF Program allows men and women to experience some of the freedoms they will experience after treatment while they are supported by thier peers, staff, and a sober environment. Staff monitors the community through regular contact, group therapy, spirituality groups, relapse prevention groups, drug screens, and random checks of the living quarters. Eventually, the patient is allowed to retrieve their cell phone, to leave the premises, operate a vehicle and obtain employment. The minimum length of stay is 2 months (while the individual concurrently is in the IOP Program). Patients often choose to stay in SLF longer while they continue to build their recovery network and become more comfortable with the life changes they’ve made.Typical length of stay varies from 2 to 6 months, depending on the patient’s clinical needs.
