Michael Stone MD, Founder of Cornerstone

Jessica & Michael Stone, MD

"I have been working with alcoholics and drug addicts since 1969 and I founded Cornerstone in 1984. During this time it has become obvious that the majority of patients and their families can be safely and more comfortably treated in a home environment like Cornerstone. My staff and my family have enjoyed the ability to do this work, providing the best care with dignity."  Michael Stone MD

Our former clients say it best...

It is the truly caring staff that makes Cornerstone the best rehab I have been to. The best part was finally getting my depression medications right, after many others tried for 2 years. Jim V.

Dr. Stone, I am so grateful to your program and also your generosity. I was a hopeless addict who believed there was no way of getting clean. Thanks to my sister and Cornerstone staff, I recently took my 90 day chip in N.A. Thanks, my life has been changed. Isaac C.
