Our residential treatment for young adults includes evidence-based therapies, life skills training, and peer support to help young adults build a strong foundation for their future.

Therapies Offered in Our Residential Treatment Program

CBT therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on identifying and restructuring negative thought patterns that influence behavior and emotions. It operates on the principle that changing maladaptive thinking leads to changes in behavior and emotional regulation. CBT is a goal-oriented approach widely used to treat a variety of mental health conditions, including anxietydepression, and substance use disorders. It teaches individuals coping strategies for dealing with challenging situations.2

group therapy and processing for trauma

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is a type of cognitive-behavioral therapy that emphasizes the psychosocial aspects of treatment. Its foundational principle is the synthesis of opposites. Through acceptance and change strategies, DBT aims to help individuals learn to manage emotions, improve relationships, and live more mindfully. DBT is particularly effective for treating personality disorders, such as borderline personality disorder, and conditions involving significant emotional dysregulation.3

residential mental health treatment

Individual therapy for mental health involves one-on-one sessions between a client and a therapist (in-person or virtual), focusing on the underlying issues and behaviors contributing to mental health conditions. It provides a private setting for individuals to explore their emotions, triggers, and past experiences that impact their mental well-being. This personalized approach enables the development of customized strategies for coping and healing, making it a fundamental aspect of effective mental health treatment programs.4

FAQs About Residential Mental Health Treatment

Get answers to the most commonly asked questions about our mental health residential treatment:

What is a residential mental health treatment program?

A residential mental health treatment program is a specialized type of care designed to provide structured, therapeutic support to individuals facing significant mental health challenges.

Unlike outpatient services, these programs offer 24-hour support and treatment in a residential setting, which allows for intensive therapy and close monitoring by mental health professionals.

Treatment methods typically include individual therapy, group sessions, and sometimes family counseling, alongside other therapeutic activities that promote healing and mental well-being.

This setting is particularly beneficial for those who require more comprehensive, continuous support to manage and recover from their mental health conditions.

Our residential mental health treatment center is dedicated to providing individualized care to meet the unique needs of each person, taking into account the type, severity, and history of their mental health issues.

We understand that a one-size-fits-all approach is inefficient, so our mental health residential treatment programs are tailored to ensure the best outcomes for our clients.

Our experienced clinicians will thoroughly assess your situation and develop a personalized plan based on their findings.

It’s important to note that some insurance policies may have annual limits on coverage for specific levels of care.

However, you don’t need to worry about these details!

Our team is well-equipped to navigate these policies and will ensure you are fully informed and supported throughout your journey in our care.

Cornerstone’s mental health residential treatment is often covered by insurance, which can significantly contribute to the cost of the services provided. However, before coverage starts, you will have to pay an initial deductible as per your insurance plan.

The deductible amount may vary according to your policy, and some insurance plans cover most of the treatment expenses while others may not. We encourage you to complete our insurance verification form to learn more about your health insurance coverage.

Our admissions team can simplify the process and contact your insurance provider directly to clarify the specifics of your coverage.

If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know, and we will be happy to assist you!

At Cornerstone Healing Center, medication management within our residential treatment program is approached with the highest level of care to ensure the safety and well-being of our clients.

Here’s how we handle medication management:

  • Initial Assessment: Upon admission, each client receives a thorough medical and psychiatric evaluation to assess their current medications and determine their suitability for the individual’s treatment plan.
  • Dedicated Medical Team: Our medical professionals, including psychiatrists and nurses, administer and monitor all medications.
  • Regular Monitoring: We regularly monitor the effects and efficacy of prescribed medications, making adjustments as needed to align with the client’s progress and to manage any potential side effects.
  • Medication Education: Clients receive detailed information about their medications, including their purposes, potential side effects, and possible interactions. This education helps clients be well-informed and actively engaged in their treatment.
  • Coordination with Outside Providers: Our team coordinates care for clients with existing prescriptions from external providers to ensure seamless continuation and proper medication management.
  • Safe Storage: All medications are securely stored to prevent misuse or unauthorized access. Medications are dispensed strictly according to prescription under the direct supervision of our medical team.


We strive to create a secure and healing atmosphere where medication management is crucial to each client’s comprehensive treatment program, facilitating their path to recovery.

YES – Our residential mental health treatment program at Cornerstone Healing Center specializes in providing services for individuals with co-occurring disorders.

We understand that many people face both mental health challenges and substance use issues at the same time.5

Our comprehensive treatment plans are designed to address a range of addictions, including alcohol, prescription drugs, and other substances, along with mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder.

Our integrated approach combines therapy, medication management, and personalized support to ensure that both aspects of each client’s condition are treated concurrently, promoting holistic recovery and long-term wellness.

Determining if Cornerstone’s residential mental health center is right for you involves several considerations:

  • Severity of Symptoms: This program is suited for individuals whose mental health symptoms significantly disrupt their daily lives—those who need more than outpatient care but do not require inpatient hospitalization.
  • Previous Treatment: If less intensive treatments, such as outpatient therapy, have been unsuccessful, our more comprehensive residential treatment may be beneficial.
  • Need for Structure: Individuals who thrive in a structured, round-the-clock therapeutic environment often succeed in our residential programs.
  • Support System: Our residential setting may be beneficial if there is a lack of supportive environments at home or too many distractions and triggers.
  • Co-occurring Disorders: We offer integrated treatment for individuals dealing with both mental health issues and substance use disorders, providing a holistic approach to recovery.
  • Professional Assessment: A thorough assessment by a mental health professional will help determine the most suitable level of care.


Due to the unique nature of each person’s situation and varying ideal treatment settings, it’s important to consult our admissions department to discuss specific concerns and receive tailored recommendations.

What ARIZONA clients and treatment professionals say about Cornerstone

This facility is unlike any other rehab I have attended. Despite many attempts to stay sober since I was 16, previous centers lacked effective aftercare, leaving me without the necessary tools to build a foundation. At Cornerstone, I was fully immersed in the 12-step program and benefited greatly from the PHP groups and daily recovery meetings. They provided excellent housing and set me up with a comprehensive aftercare plan, including sober living, a job, and progress in my 12 steps. After leaving, I continued with IOP, supported weekly by a navigator who helped me overcome obstacles. The caring staff at Cornerstone is dedicated to individual success, and thanks to them, I have achieved long-term sobriety and happiness. I am forever grateful to Cornerstone and its team for their ongoing support in my recovery journey.
Cornerstone Alumni
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.

Cornerstone Healing Center helped me through my DUI classes, and the founder, Estil Wallace, was very helpful at my time of need. With everything that you have to go through when you get a DUI, the Cornerstone classes are easy to access and can be completed in your time schedule. I would recommend Cornerstone Healing Center for all your needs regarding recovery. The staff is very dedicated and compassionate about recovery for individuals and their support system.
