Cornerstone Recovery Center

0 Reviews

Cornerstone Recovery Center is a drug and alcohol addiction rehab center in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, providing personalized addiction treatment programs to individuals struggling with drug addiction and alcoholism.

Cornerstone Recovery Center 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.

Alcoholism

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

Cornerstone Recovery Center is one of only a handful of South Florida addiction treatment centers that offer co-occurring services, commonly called dual diagnosis, to treat primary mental health disorders. It is estimated that 8.9 million adults have a dual diagnosis of both a mental health condition and drug or alcohol addiction. Our Co-occurring Services Program Director, Barbara Hernandez, MS, LMHC, and Primary Therapist Sidney Torres, provide integrated treatment in a safe and insulated environment.

What does Cornerstone Recovery Center offer?

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

The Cornerstone Recovery Center intensive outpatient treatment program (IOP) is available to clients meeting the criteria for admission. Criteria vary from client to client and are contingent upon the individual’s treatment needs. The frequency and intensity of treatment are customized to effectively and efficiently address a client’s treatment requirements, though clients should expect to participate in outpatient rehab three to five times per week for a total of six to eight weeks.

Outpatient (OP)

Cornerstone Recovery Center focuses on a step down approach to recovery treatment. Patients usually begin treatment in our Partial Hospitalization Program and then step down to the IOP, or Intensive Outpatient Program. Once the intensive program is completed, the next step down is to the Outpatient Program (OP), which provides more flexibility for going to work or school, spending time with family and loved ones, and getting back to a normal daily routine. Outpatient clients still keep appointments with their therapists, attend meetings and receive support from the Cornerstone staff while returning to, or learning to live, a self-supporting lifestyle. Once a client is ready to move on from the Outpatient Program, we provide an Aftercare Treatment Program and Relapse Prevention services.

Residential (inpatient) Treatment

The Cornerstone Recovery Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) treats drug and alcohol abuse while simultaneously allowing him or her to live life on life’s terms. The PHP, by way of its structure, will work to closely mirror the day-to-day life that a client will experience once addiction treatment has been completed. Individuals who take part in our PHP will first meet with our Medical Director and Clinical Director to properly determine an individualized addiction treatment program. Once a course of action is agreed upon by everyone involved, the journey toward honest recovery can begin.

Treatment Types:

Individualized Treatment

Certain drug and alcohol rehab centers have standard treatment regimes they expect all patients to follow. Others offer individualized treatment, meaning they tailor treatment to a person’s specific background and needs. For example, a rehab facility may adjust a treatment program to take into account the type of drug or addiction from which the person suffers, their age, medical condition(s), religious beliefs, or lifestyle.

12-Step

The 12-Step Recovery program is the most popular and well-known treatment program offered at Cornerstone. The 12-step approach to recovery has been very successful in helping those dealing with addiction to alcohol or drugs. They guide clients through the 12 steps, also known as 12 principles to recovery, in their nurturing and healing environment. A typical day may include individual and group therapy, exercise, holistic activities, and attending 12-step meetings.

Family Program

Addiction is a family disease; alcohol or drug abuse not only affects the person seeking treatment, but relationships with family, friends and loved ones. Cornerstone staff is committed to keeping family members in the loop and understand that part of recovery must include support from family and friends and that often some of those relationships need some mending after the strain of addiction. Family services are included in the program before admission, during treatment, and after treatment as a vital part of recovery. The facility hosts Family Night events on the first and third Fridays of each month so family members can come to group sessions and meet others who are going through very similar situations. Building a support network and knowing that they are not alone through this process is one of the most appreciated factors cited in the success of our Family Night events.

Aftercare Support

Clients in the Aftercare Program may meet with a therapist or counselor periodically to monitor the progress of their continuing care plans, attend support groups and alumni meetings, and receive help from their case manager. The case manager can assist with lifestyle issues, such as finding a job, applying for school, securing a safe housing situation and more.

Therapies Offered:

Holistic Therapy

Getting in touch with your mind and body can help you transition from negative thought and behavioral patterns into a more positive way of thinking that supports a healthier, more fulfilled life. This is why, at Cornerstone Recovery Center, we offer holistic services that aid in healing the body and the mind. Their holistic services include a nutritionist, chiropractor, massage therapy, serenity lounge, 12-step yoga classes, acupuncture, art therapy and more. In sticking to our roots, we utilize the tranquillity of the ocean and power of drum circles to promote healing from within. On occasion, we even invite special guests to our treatment center to hear their stories of recovery as told through their art, music and books. You can choose to incorporate any or all of these holistic services into your drug treatment program.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapy modality that focuses on the relationship between one's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is used to establish and allow for healthy responses to thoughts and feelings (instead of unhealthy responses, like using drugs or alcohol). CBT has been proven effective for recovering addicts of all kinds, and is used to strengthen a patient's own self-awareness and ability to self-regulate. CBT allows individuals to monitor their own emotional state, become more adept at communicating with others, and manage stress without needing to engage in substance abuse.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a modified form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a treatment designed to help people understand and ultimately affect the relationship between their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. DBT is often used for individuals who struggle with self-harm behaviors, such as self-mutilation (cutting) and suicidal thoughts, urges, or attempts. It has been proven clinically effective for those who struggle with out-of-control emotions and mental health illnesses like Borderline Personality Disorder.

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.

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.

Eating Disorder Treatment

Eating disorders include anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, and dysfunctional eating patterns. Many psychologists and other mental health professionals consider eating disorders to be food addictions, meaning food is being used in an addictive way (similar to drug or alcohol addiction). Certain substance abuse treatment programs will have treatment for eating disorders as one of the services offered. An eating disorder may also present as a co-occuring disorder or dual diagnosis alongside drug and alcohol addiction.

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a clinical approach to helping people with substance abuse issues and other conditions shift behavior in positive ways. It is more goal-oriented than traditional psychotherapy, as MI counselors directly attempt to get clients to consider making behavioral change (rather than wait for them to come to conclusions themselves). Its primary purpose is to resolve ambivalence and help clients become able to make healthy choices freely.

Nutrition Therapy

Nutrition therapy, aka medical nutrition therapy (MNT), is a way of treating physical, emotional, and medical conditions through diet. Specific dietary plans are designed by professional nutritionists or registered dietitians, and patients follow them in order to positively affect their physical and mental health.

Cornerstone Recovery Center Highlights:

Cornerstone Recovery Center was established in 2012, but its foundation as a drug and alcohol addiction treatment center was laid over twenty years earlier on the sands of Serenity Beach. There’s no monument erected to the memory of Serenity Beach, no placards or signs indicating where, along South Florida’s east coast, Serenity Beach is, and their footsteps have long since been washed away by the waxing and waning of the tides, but Serenity Beach still exists in their hearts, minds, in the experiences we shared and the recovery we pursued.
