Michael Stone, M.D, our founder, along with our dedicated and caring staff have been helping addicts and their families since 1969. In 1984, he founded Cornerstone of Southern California, which currently has drug and alcohol treatment facilities in Orange, Santa Ana and Tustin, CA. In addition to licensed/certified alcohol and drug counseling staff, many of our support staff are in recovery and all have credentials of the heart.
We believe that we provide the best clinically experienced staff and programs you will find. How do we know? Our clients tell us every day, and those that have been in other centers say they wish they had come to Cornerstone first.
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.
