IMS assists treatment services provided by a licensed health care practitioner at a residential treatment facility that deals with medical issues associated with either detoxification or providing alcoholism or drug abuse recovery.

Up until 2016 alcohol or drug abuse treatment and recovery facilities were not permitted to provide incidental medical services. Assembly Bill 848 amended the Health and Saftey Code to allow facilities that are currently licensed by the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) to also provide IMS to patients in need.

This allows Cornerstone’s medical staff to better address serious physical and mental issues associated with detoxification, treatment, or recovery services.

IMS that can be provided at Cornerstone

Whether you’re being treated at an inpatient facility or one of our sober living houses throughout Orange County, IMS allows us to better plan and work with patients to get sober. This includes:

  • Obtaining medical histories
  • Monitoring of a patient’s health status to determine whether they need to be transferred to receive urgent or emergency care
  • Testing associated with detoxification from alcohol or drugs
  • Providing alcoholism or drug abuse recovery or treatment services
  • Overseeing patient self-administered medications
  • Treating substance abuse disorders, including detoxification.

Our former clients say it best...

Dr. Stone, I am so grateful to your program and also your generosity. I was a hopeless addictwho 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.

“This was the best foundation I could have asked for to be sober. My case manager was the Best!! She showed me your life can be exciting and sober.”
~ Tina H.

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.
