"Our son is an addict and former client at Cornerstone. We interfaced with the staff who worked in the front office and billing, as well as those involved in counseling and case management, and consistently found them all to be extremely professional.
In addition to the treatment that our son received, parents and families were also provided with educational opportunities and group meetings to help us understand and accept our roles and responsibilities in his addiction and recovery. We found particular value in the Tuesday evening family group meeting headed by a gentleman who, as a recovering alcoholic and parent of an alcoholic, provided valuable insight into the importance of our role as enablers in his addiction as well as our role in his recovery. We learned to understand that we cannot blame others for his disease, nor could we hold anyone else responsible for his recovery; it was up to our son. We saw our son emerge from the Cornerstone program sober and committed to his recovery, and we’ve been proud of his personal development.
As for the cost, addiction is a deadly disease. Cornerstone is dedicated to saving as many lives as possible. How do you put a price tag on that? The cost of the program was a valuable investment in the success and fulfillment of our son’s life. The Cornerstone program has provided a solid foundation for our family and for many other patients who have sought treatment. We have learned to comprehend the seriousness and long-term effects of addiction, and have been educated to understand the need for the positive dedication that long-lasting recovery requires not only of the patient, but of his entire family. Anyone who expects a “quick-fix” solution to the problem of addiction will probably be disappointed with Cornerstone, or with any other reputable program."
