I can't express enough how grateful I am!

My experience was completely different.   Dr Stone and his staff saved my life.  It will be 10 years this Jan.

I had just gotten my 4th DUI, I was loosing my job, my house, I had a bunch of payday loans out and my life was a disaster. I was loosing everything!  Completely unmanageable!!

I went through detox, intensive inpatient,  outpatient and then into sober living.  The staff and Dr stone genuinely cared about my needs and provided a safe environment for my treatment.  They gave me the tools to live life on life's terms.  This process was life changing.  I have so much respect for Dr Stone and his facility.

Cornerstone brought me an my family back together, taught me how to be accountable for my actions and how to live life with out any substances.  I can't express enough how grateful I am!

I now have a career,  make great money, own 2 houses and am engaged to be married.  If you work it, take one day at a time...this sober thing will work.

Thank you so much Cornerstone!!

Entire Cornerstone System is Orange County Probation Approved...AGAIN!

Cornerstone owns and operates 20 Recovery Homes, all Licensed and Certified by the Department Of Health Care Services (formerly the State Alcohol and Drug Programs). We have been working with the Department for the past 28 years and we are considered one of the very best treatment centers in the state of California. Cornerstone has also worked closely with the Orange County Probation Department and has just cleared their annual inspection of all 20 individual homes. On September 20th, we recieved confirmation that each and every Cornerstone Recovery Home is cleared to house probationers who are in need of drug and alcohol treatment services. We are proud to work with both entities and strive to maintain the highest quality of care and service to our community.

Another positive review!!

This facility is excellent.  They are very up front about the care and environment of care of the clients.  I find that the counseling staff are thorough and respectful.

I saw a couple negative reviews here but I would have to say I had a thoroughly differently experience.  They are methodical and above all safe and ethical in dealings with finances and care for families and clients.

I would recommend this facility to anyone and everyone seeking QUALITY help.  They have been around longer than most everyone, something like 30 years(???)...something must be right about this place.

Thanks everyone!!!

Review of the Cornerstone Program by a concerned mother

My daughter recently admitted to this place.  I have found peace within myself going to the family program with all their support.  I didn't realize what a "gift" it was just to back off and let this process happen as I was advised to do.

I always wanted to FIX everything or control it all.  I'm a mom, that is all I know how to do. I did read these reviews but I was sent here by someone who got sober here and had good success.  I think the proof is in the pudding.

My daughter has been there 44 days and I am extremely happy with the work she has done with her counselor and friends she has met there.  She truly is a different person than when she went in.  In all honesty, I owe the staff there a debt of gratitude for helping my family come together, get the skeletons out of the closet, talk about the elephant in the room, whatever and HEAL!!!

Secrets destroy families, all members, not just the "sick" one as we are ALL part of my daughter's disease I have learned.  We all contribute in some way and we all need our own program as well.

Thank God we found this place.  I wish I could reach out and tell each person reading this how important it is to save a life...they are saving my daughters life, and in turn, repairing my entire family.

Review of the Cornerstone Treatment Program

I came into Cornerstone feeling mentally, emotionally and physically broken from my addiction of opiates. After spending a couple weeks detoxing and becoming educated about my disease I started to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Through group processing, A.A. Meetings and one on one meetings with case mangers I slowly became more confident to get back into the real world.

This is the second time I have attempted treatment and I feel Cornerstone was exceptionally better. The case managers and staff were very understanding about the patients needs and wants but at the same time made you earn back trust and freedom by excelling in your own recovery.

Today I have 4 months clean and attend A.A. Meetings daily all which I have Cornerstone to thank. For anyone contemplating treatment centers I would definitely recommend Cornerstone because as of "today" its saved my life!

Review of Cornerstone of Southern California

I have read the reviews about Cornerstone of Southern California and having some sober time under my belt I found some of the attacking comments - sad.  I would love to know the real reason behind the experiences some of these reviewers had.  Everyone is entitled to their opinions but the venomous tone these folks take tells me they are, maybe not working a program?  Possibly still using? Have scary family dynamics?

No one seems willing to take responsibility for their actions/life choices.....then they blame others by pointing fingers and forgetting that three are pointing back at them.  I would consider Cornerstone because I have close friends that are still sober today because they took responsibility for their "stuff" and recognized their part in the problem and ACTUALLY COMPLETED their care at Cornerstone.
