FAQ’S

If I meet criteria for treatment, how long will it last?

Cornerstone Recovery designs treatment plans to meet the unique life circumstances of each person. The American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) recommends at least 12-18 weeks of engagement in a recovery program to support changing addictive behaviors. Groups currently meet two times a week for two hours. Individual therapy and family therapy with a licensed professional counselor are also available.

Do you provide help for family members?

Family involvement is strongly encouraged and linked to healthy recovery. Cornerstone Recovery offers and can hold relational and family counseling sessions. Cornerstone Recovery understands the anguish for all who are connected to addiction and seek to provide help and support. We refer to local groups and provide resources and counsel.

In the United States, nearly one in four adults experiences a mental health or substance use disorder each year. Most of these adults are already part of the workforce, and few choose to share their diagnosis or recovery support needs with their employers. With anxiety, depression, stress, and substance use increasing in many sectors of the workforce, the need for employers to prioritize supporting worker resilience and recovery has never been more urgent.

What happens in group?

Group therapy provides support, connections and encouragement, with honest feedback from counselors and other group members. Coping strategies and practical tools for common problems are practiced in group. Subjects covered include how to have and maintain good relationships and communication; coping with difficult emotions and life events like trauma, grief and loss; relapse prevention, thinking errors, and much more.

How Many Faith-Based Recovery Programs Are There?

There isn’t an exact number of faith-based recovery programs available, because faith-based recovery can be hosted by churches, sober living homes, rehab centers, and 12 step-programs. But one thing that’s certain: In the United States, with more than 60,698 groups and over 1,200,000 members in Alcoholics Anonymous, and about 50 other programs modeled after the original 12-step model (with just about every addiction you could imagine); there’s a faith-based recovery program available for just about everyone.

What Is A 12-Step Program?

A 12-step program is a way for a person to use fellowship, unity, and recovery to understand why they’re addicted, learn how other people fight addictions, and how to stay sober. It’s about realizing that there is a God, and you’re not it.
According to an article in the United States National Library of Medicine, “Twelve-step fellowships (e.g., Narcotics and Alcoholics Anonymous) are the most widely available addiction recovery resource in the United States. Affiliation with 12-step fellowships, both during and after treatment, is a cost-effective and useful approach to promoting recovery from alcohol–and other drug-related problems.”

Is Faith-Based Treatment Religious Or Spiritual?

Faith-based treatment can be both spiritual and religious. Spirituality, by definition, is something concerned with a person’s spirit or soul rather than material things, and religious means related to believing in a religion. AA claims to be a spiritual program, however, based on the 12 steps, members are also encouraged to practice praying to a “God of their understanding.” Not to twist things up too much; spirituality and religion can, but don’t always, have some of the same ideas.
