5-Day IOP Therapies & Treatments

partial hospitalization therapy session

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a type of talk therapy that helps individuals recognize and modify negative thought patterns that can lead to negative behavior and emotions. The approach is based on the idea that changing negative thinking can lead to positive behavior and emotional regulation changes. CBT is a goal-oriented treatment that is commonly used to help people suffering from a range of mental health issues, such as anxiety, depression, and substance abuse. It provides individuals with practical strategies to cope with challenging situations and improve their overall well-being.1

residential drug rehab learning life skills

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is a cognitive-behavioral therapy that emphasizes the psychosocial aspects of treatment. Its foundational principle is the synthesis of opposites. DBT aims to help individuals learn to manage their emotions, improve their relationships, and live more mindfully through acceptance and change strategies. This therapy is particularly effective for treating personality disorders such as borderline personality disorder and conditions involving significant emotional dysregulation.2

therapy with counselor

Individual addiction therapy involves confidential one-on-one sessions between a client and a therapist. The primary focus is on identifying and addressing the underlying issues and behaviors that contribute to substance use. During therapy, individuals can explore their emotions, triggers, and past experiences that have influenced their addiction. This personalized approach enables the development of customized coping and recovery strategies, making it an essential aspect of effective addiction treatment programs.3

This facility is different from any other rehab that I have been to. I have had many failed attempts at getting and staying sober since I was 16. Mostly due to a majority of the treatment centers that I had went to not having much help with aftercare. They would get you clean for however long the stay was and then release you with no tools or foundation to build on. Cornerstone immersed me in the 12 step recovery program. The PHP groups were extremely therapeutic for me. They took me to Recovery meetings every day of the week. They have extremely nice houses to go back to while you’re not at the clinic. Most importantly, they set me up with an aftercare plan that put me on a path to success. Before I left they made sure that I was set up with a sober living, a job, and also made sure that I had made good progress in my 12 steps. After I got out I was sent to IOP, and every week they have a navigator who makes sure that you are doing well and helps you with any obstacles you may be facing. All of the staff truly cares about every individual who comes through this place. Unlike a lot of treatment centers, cornerstone is not in it for the money. Thanks to them I have been able to maintain long term sobriety. I am the happiest I have been in my entire life. I will forever have gratitude for cornerstone and to all of the staff that helped me, and continues to help on my recovery journey.

I watched my loved one struggle with an addiction to alcohol for over fifteen years. In 2022 he was at the worse I had ever seen. I suggested a multitude of things to quit, however, I knew that he needed help and was convinced that this was not going to end well. I had seen the program of recovery outlined at Cornerstone and convinced my loved one to make the 1,800-mile drive across the country. It saved his life. I hardly recognize this man today. From hustling me to pay for "just one more night" at a hotel, to having his own apartment in a year is a miracle. Cornerstone provided him a safe place and provided every tool possible including inpatient treatment, A.A., therapy and counseling, IOP and helped with his transition into the mainstream of life. I’ll be forever grateful.

this place saved my life 100%. the whole staff genuinely cared about me and were only trying to help me grow. i have confidence again and goals to achieve. coming from someone who was very suicidal and a bad alcoholic before treatment, i’ve completely done a 180°. i loved my house managers lacey and jazz who were both extremely important to my recovery. my primary therapist Lori was such a sweetheart and i could tell she genuinely cared about my life and wanted to help in any way she could. i feel like i’ve finally found my place in this world and most importantly myself and that’s all thanks to God and Cornerstone.
