You can learn more about our co-occurring program here.

  • Do you have a formal aftercare program? If so, tell me about it. If not, do you help clients arrange for aftercare before discharge?

    Yes – Our aftercare program includes motivational interventions for ongoing recovery. There is no charge for our Aftercare participants, other than a commitment to attend at least once monthly and maintain an open and honest relationship with our aftercare counselor. You can get more information about our aftercare program here.

  • Are there relapse prevention groups available to clients?

    Yes – relapse prevention is covered during a variety of scheduled groups including our Recovery Skills. It is also a key component of our caseload groups, trauma groups, and Seeking Safety.

  • Does your facility have an active alumni program?

    Yes – our Alumni Program is a way for former clients to remain engaged in fellowship with peers and staff. We are very proud of our Alumni. You can learn more about it here.

  • Do you offer a family support program?

    Yes – Family support happens on an individual basis with the therapeutic relationship and during our twice-monthly Family Night. Family members are encouraged to attend in person. If this is not available we encourage family support through the telephone. Learn more about our Family Support services here.

    We are a voluntary program. For those facing criminal charges for a drug-related case, we work with courts, judges, and probation officers. You can learn more about our alternative sentencing program here.

  • What is your visitation policy?

    After the initial “safe call” there is a three-day blackout period so that new clients can get acclimated to the community. After that we encourage family visitation, especially in conjunction with Family Night. Please be aware that approval for “outside passes” is issued on a case-by-case basis.

  • Do you discharge clients who relapse during treatment?

    This is always considered on a case-by-case basis. One cause for immediate discharge would be to bring drugs onto Cornerstone Recovery Center premises and especially to involve other clients in drug or alcohol use.
