Capstone Treatment Focus:

Opiate Addiction

Opiate Addiction Treatment Centers specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.


The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.

Mental Health and Substance Abuse

A combined mental health and substance abuse treatment center has the staff and resources available to handle individuals with both mental health and substance abuse issues. It can be challenging to determine where a specific symptom stems from (a mental health issue or an issue related to substance abuse), so mental health and substance abuse professionals are helpful in detangling symptoms and keeping treatment on track.

Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

Many of those suffering from addiction also suffer from mental or emotional illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety disorders. Rehab and other substance abuse facilities treating those with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder administer psychiatric treatment to address the person’s mental health issue in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

What does Capstone Treatment offer?

Outpatient (OP)

Outpatient programs are for those seeking mental rehab or drug rehab, but who also stay at home every night. The main difference between outpatient treatment (OP) and intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) lies in the amount of hours the patient spends at the facility. Most of the time an outpatient program is designed for someone who has completed an inpatient stay and is looking to continue their growth in recovery. Outpatient is not meant to be the starting point, it is commonly referred to as aftercare.

Residential (inpatient) Treatment

Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient's individual requirements.

Treatment Types:


12-step programs are addiction recovery models based on Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). A number of substance abuse programs (including some drug and alcohol rehab centers) use the 12 steps as a basis for treatment. Beginning steps involve admitting powerlessness over the addiction and creating a spiritual basis for recovery. Middle steps including making direct amends to those who've been hurt by the addiction, and the final step is to assist others in addiction recovery in the same way. 12-Step offshoots including Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Dual Recovery Anonymous (DRA), Sex & Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA) and Gamblers Anonymous (GA). Step Fellowships, including resources like Celebrate Recovery are vital, especially in the first two to five years of recovery. As a Christ-centered program, Capstone uses the AA 12-Steps and Big Book from a Christian perspective. The 12-Steps, both during Capstone and after graduation, are crucial components in successful recovery.

Family Program

Once a month they have family week at Capstone. The primary function of Family Week is for the parents and sons to participate in an intense week of family therapy. Another benefit of Family Week is that parents get to connect with other parents who are going through the same situation that they are. It begins with Big Monday, a long day of education. When Family Week arrives, the sons have been working and learning about why they are in treatment for some time, and parents need to learn the language that is being use at Capstone. Parents are taught about the Capstone model, different kinds of addiction, and essentials of recovery. They want parents to understand that this is a comprehensive issue. It’s about more than stopping using drugs; it’s also about exposing the core issues underneath that have made their son vulnerable.

Therapies Offered:

Individual Therapy

In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.

Trauma Therapy

Trauma therapy addresses traumatic incidents from a client's past that are likely affecting their present-day experience. Trauma is often one of the primary triggers and potential causes of addiction, and can stem from child sexual abuse, domestic violence, having a parent with a mental illness, losing one or both parents at a young age, teenage or adult sexual assault, or any number of other factors. The purpose of trauma therapy is to allow a patient to process trauma and move through and past it, with the help of trained and compassionate mental health professionals.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members.

Couples Treatment

Whether a marriage or other committed relationship, an intimate partnership is one of the most important aspects of a person’s life. Drug and alcohol addiction affects both members of a couple in deep and meaningful ways, as does rehab and recovery. Couples therapy and other couples-focused treatment programs are significant parts of exploring triggers of addiction, as well as learning how to build healthy patterns to support ongoing sobriety.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is a therapeutic modality originally developed to help process trauma. In an EMDR session, a patient is prompted to undergo eye movements that mimic those of REM sleep. This is accomplished by watching a therapist’s finger move back and forth across, or following a bar of light. The goal is repetitive sets of eye movements that help the brain reprocess memory, which can significantly reduce the intensity of remembered traumatic incidents. Associated memories can heal simultaneously, leaving patients significantly calmer, more stable, and more emotionally relaxed.

Experiential Therapy

Experiential therapy is a form of therapy in which clients are encouraged to surface and work through subconscious issues by engaging in real-time experiences. Experiential therapy departs from traditional “talk therapy” by involving the body, and having clients engage in activities, movements, and physical and emotional expression. This can involve role-play or using props (which can include other people). Experiential therapy can help people process trauma, memories, and emotion quickly, deeply, and in a lasting fashion, leading to substantial and impactful healing.

Animal Therapy

Canine Therapy is a magical and unique part of Capstone’s program. Each client receives a registered Labrador retriever puppy when he first gets to Capstone. He feeds the puppy, cleans the kennel twice per day, and spends one hour per day in Canine Therapy. The primary benefit is the relationship between client and puppy with additional benefits of learning responsibility, self-efficacy from the success with the puppy, and a self-competency from the results of obedience training. Upon graduation the client takes his new canine friend home with him to enjoy for ten years or more.

Capstone Treatment Highlights:

Capstone works with clients who have addictions, as well as those who meet the criteria for other disorders. However, they do not identify their clients as “addicts” or “disorders” but instead, as young men who have hurts and struggles that have resulted in the condition of having developed an addiction or meeting the criteria for a disorder. Capstone goes to the core of what is causing these struggles and treats the whole person in the contexts of his past, present, and future.
Capstone’s team is highly trained and talented but more important, genuine and loving. Hard-headed, big-hearted young men and their families have been their love and passion since 2001. They begin by focusing on the symptomatic behaviors and then “Retrace the Vine to the Roots” to start healing the core, underlying issues. Healing the causes underneath the struggles gives sons and families lasting change. Traction in the right direction towards growing healthier family relationships and ending the son’s chronic cycle of destructive behaviors.
Luxury Accomodations
Capstone’s facilities are excellent for men that want to begin the process of recovery. The big house is a 4,000 plus square foot rock and cedar lodge. The three-story facility currently houses therapists’ offices, the administrative offices, and two group rooms. It has a 1,250 square foot deck made out of Arkansas red cedar cut from our property. The cabins are also made out of red cedar and have big private showers, comfortable beds and front porches. The mess hall is a 1,600 square foot red cedar log building with state of the art kitchen equipment and excellent food.
Capstone has a full time Education Coordinator, who serves as a liaison between the clients who are still in secondary school and their school guidance counselor, or facilitates online courses so clients don’t get any further behind in school. Schoolwork is maintained to preserve academic status during treatment. Special tutoring may be utilized to enhance academic performance.
