We believe that our programs have the highest integrity, quality and success.

We have been accredited by the Joint Commission since 1991.

The Joint Commission is an organization that accredits facilities, programs and hospitals. They check every area of a program, in depth, before awarding them the Gold Seal of Approval and Accreditation. Cornerstone of Southern California made the decision to be surveyed by them as a way of providing our clients, families, employers and insurance companies the assurance they need that Cornerstone will provide the highest quality of ethical treatment.

Cornerstone of Southern California was founded in 1984, 27 years ago, by Michael Stone, M.D. Dr. Stone is a Board Certified Family Physician, a diplomat of American Pain Management Society and is certified in Addiction Medicine. He believes in a hands-on approach and is totally involved in the clinical quality of our program.

Dr. Stone has treated over 60,000 addicts since he began this work in 1969. He understands addiction!

Michael Stone, MD, along with his family, all work full time at Cornerstone and have built the most respected Addiction Treatment Facility in the Southern California.

Cornerstone can treat all chemical dependencies including, but not limited to, alcohol, narcotics (Vicodin, Oxycontin, Norco, Fentanyl, Methadone, Heroin, Suboxone), sedative hypnotics (Xanax, Valium, Librium, Ambien, Sonata, Lunesta, Ativan, Serax), methamphetamine and amphetamines (Adderal and Ritalin) cocaine, marijuana, PCP and the designer drugs (ecstacy, GHB, Ketamine). Cornerstone now offers Vivitrol Injections for opiate addicts.

Many of our clients bring with them multiple problems; mental disorders such as depression, general anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social phobia, bipolar disorder, schizoaffective disorder, attention deficit disorder (ADD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), physical problems such as diabetes, hypertension, liver problems, gastritis, arthritis and back pain.

Often we find the person being admitted for substance dependence has been trying to self-medicate the symptoms of a mental or physical complaint. They often get themselves very confused, chemically, and emotionally trying to fix it without help. We are able to assist the individual in finding the right psychiatrist or other independent or outside medical professional to help; they can evaluate and recommend the best course of treatment for each individual. The cost of this is additional to our Chemical Dependency program but is often covered by insurance.

Cornerstone offers a full continuum of care, allowing the individual to be detoxified in our Inpatient Detox setting and then transferred to the appropriate level of care e.g. primary residential treatment, day treatment, intensive outpatient, extended care or residential/sober living with seamless continuity. We believe that chemical dependency needs to be managed by a knowledgeable, professional team at all stages of the recovery process. Many other programs offer only one level of care, on site, and then have to transfer the individual to another program to allow some degree of continued treatment. Cornerstone can offer all levels of care 'in-house' which gives clients a feeling of security. Often the clients who come into our Detox Program move through the other levels of care with clients they met in their Intensive Inpatient Detox Program as well.

Cornerstone is able to accept most health insurance including HMOs. Please see the "We Accept Health Insurance" page for a list of some of the insurance companies we have contracts with. Because of our accreditation by The Joint Commission we can often get approval for your treatment by many other insurance companies not on our list. So give us a call at 1-714-730-5399 or 1-800-385-9889 and we will work with you. Our costs for those who wish to pay privately are reasonable and much lower than most other private centers in Orange County, California.

Cornerstone believes that because Addiction is a chronic disease and is highly prone to relapse, we must teach relapse prevention techniques throughout all levels of our program. It is not a 'specialty track' it is what we teach daily. Every part of our program is there for a purpose, to help avoid relapse, or to help someone recognize that they are IN relapse mode and need to get help before they take the next drink or drug.

Cornerstone has an Alternative Sentencing Program that is Orange County Probation-Approved and well respected by the Court System in Southern California. We can help clients, both locally (Orange County/Southern California) and nationally, with their legal issues that were a direct result of their use of alcohol or drugs. Most of our Probation Approved programs are set up for people that are working and after some intensive treatment, they can continue to go to work, school or look for a job while they are in a long term treatment program.

Cornerstone programs are in normal, home-like settings in beautiful neighborhoods in Orange County, California. We believe that a person suffering from addiction should have a good foundation for recovery when participating in normal everyday functions. In addition to Group Therapy, Individual Therapy, Lectures, and Assignments, our residents follow a daily routine similar to that which they will do when they leave treatment. They get up on schedule, go to bed on schedule, make their beds, assist with meal preparation and they participate in the overall social interaction with their other house members. We treat the whole person, using a holistic approach, to body, mind and spirit. We have a no/low sugar and no caffeine policy in the intensive levels of our program. Our residents learn about the importance of exercise and balanced living; we belong to Gold's Gym and go to the gym up to 4 times a week.

Cornerstone provides a complete Recovery Management program, providing all levels of care and our FREE After Care/Continuing Care. Studies have shown that the longer one remains in a treatment program, the better his/her chance of success. At Cornerstone of Southern California, we are able to provide many levels of care while someone is reintegrating back into a healthy, productive life without alcohol or drugs.

I hope I have given you ample reasons why you should choose Cornerstone of Southern California, as the place for treatment. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to call. If possible, schedule an appointment to come in and meet us! There is no better way to tell if a treatment center is right for you or your loved one than meeting the staff and coming in to see it for yourself. If you are from out of town, remember we are accredited by The Joint Commission, they, as well as the State of California Department of Alcohol and Drug programs, can and do come and check on all our programs and homes on a regular basis.
