Cornerstone has chosen to adopt relapse prevention as our primary focus due to the high rate of relapse following traditional drug treatment.
Relapse prevention begins with education about how to return to life outside of a treatment setting with all of the old stressors and problems that come with it without also returning to drug use. We educate our clients on the real effects of drugs and alcohol on the human body, what triggers are and how to identify and avoid them, living by a new code of rigorous honesty, staying connected to a sponsor and the treatment community and making better choices. Other topics include an explanation of codependency, enabling behaviors, family dynamics, control issues, acceptance and many other topics essential to continued sobriety.
Cornerstone believes chemical dependency is a disease that is chronic, progressive, treatable but not curable. It is a disease that can be placed in remission but is also highly prone to relapse.
We believe both the disease and its relapse are best treated through physical stabilization, psychological education, self-confrontation and social rehabilitation.
We believe those seeking treatment are not guilty for having the disease but are responsible for its management.
We believe abstinence is the beginning of the recovery process. Full recovery is a total lifestyle change.
We believe relapse is a process not an event; a process that can be identified, interrupted and managed.
Cornerstone offers quality affordable treatment programs at reasonable rates in Southern California.
Cornerstone Recovery Homes
Our recovery homes are located in sunny Orange County, CA. in Tustin, Orange and Santa Ana neighborhoods. These homes are centrally located near public transportation, colleges, Chapman University, shopping malls, beaches, Disneyland, the Performing Arts Center and the mountains.
Our care is provided in State licensed and certified homes and the homes are recognized by the local Courts and Orange County Probation. Our recovery home treatment is provided in the home and aftercare is provided at our outpatient treatment address. Clients may also be permitted to continue working or going to school, as well as participating in treatment.
Our recovery homes are appointed with your comfort and needs in mind. Laundry facilities are located within each home as well as WiFi, HDTV, A/C, and plenty of parking.
Our recovery homes are the ideal settings for clients who have completed primary treatment and are transitioning to less intensive levels of treatment. We have learned from experience that when clients with multiple disorders go directly to an unsupervised sober living program the rate of relapse increases.
Our recovery homes are safe, supportive and structured bridges to independent living. When combined with additional treatment and living-sober skills for the newly recovering individual, the success rate improves greatly. Our treatment program individualizes a program for each client. This is the solution for the person who has been through many programs in the past, yet continues to relapse after a few months on their own. Some individuals need a higher level of care than sober living in order to get clean time under their belt, while continuing their medication.
Medication compliance is a key component in preventing relapse. Most often, we have seen relapse occur when an individual stops taking their medication. The type of medications might be anti-craving, anti-anxiety, anti-depressants or anti-abuse. We monitor clients who take their own medication to ensure compliance.
