Helping teens and families build sustainable recovery
“From chaos and hopelessness, to peaceful and hopeful. I’m so blessed to live in Houston, this guidance in recovery is unique in the way it helps families. As a parent initially seeking help for my kid, who didn’t want help, transforming my life was the catalyst of change. My restoration of sanity, love of self, self esteem, eventually my kid sought help."
“I’m a confident young man in recovery who has hope for himself and believes that he is worth something. I love my life today and owe most of this to Cornerstone. I’m truly grateful. I’ve built relationships with people and memories that I will have for the rest of my life. I will always have a special place in my heart for Cornerstone for helping transform me into a person I love.”
“My son and family came to Cornerstone in a state of panic and disarray. We were introduce to the 12 step recovery process and provided meetings, education, adventures, and support to guide us and our son through recovery. My son is now sober for 4 years and my marriage is back on track. All things don’t always end up rosy as addiction is a deadly disease. We saw much heartbreak during our 4 years working with Cornerstone. You will get what you put into recovery. I highly recommend Cornerstone. They saved our son’s life.”
"When I came into Cornerstone Recovery I was broken. I was finally able to find a place that I felt as though I belonged. The unconditional love that was given to me was unbridled in my life, and I finally started to feel as though I could get better. My dad was in prison, my mom worked 2 jobs just to provide for us, and so I truly had no direction until I got to this program. Today as I write this I look back with 6.5 years sober, a beautiful wife, a loving "functional" family, and a great career. I would not be the man that I am today without this program. Thank you Cornerstone for everything that you have enabled me to become."
"Cornerstone saved our family and our sanity as parents. I sincerely believe that one or both of my children would be dead if we had not found this program. We had tried so many things prior to Cornerstone - including years of intensive counseling - nothing but this program and the parenting tools they advocate worked. Our situation is not perfect today, but collectively as a family and individually we are all in such a better place."
"Cornerstone gave me another chance. I came in at 15 years old. I had been beaten and bruised by life and I didn't think I had another way out from my drug addiction. While in the program I lost friends and family members, every time life threw me another curve ball I had someone from the group there to hold my hand and tell me I would be okay. The staff and my fellow peers at Cornerstone helped me see that I had another chance at life. Even though life could be rough I would be able to get through it sober and with a head held high."
"I am truly thankful to Cornerstone. When I first started coming to Cornerstone my sole purpose was to get my stepson “fixed”. I didn’t think I had any problems…well ones I needed help fixing except him. He was ruling our house, all our time was consumed with either dealing with him, trying to determine what and why he was doing what he was doing and how we could get him back on the right path and out of a life of drugs and theft. Fortunately, what I learned was that his life lesson were not my responsibility and all my frustrations, fear, and sadness for him and for my husband who so desperately missed and wanted a relationship with his son were nothing to do with either of them but all related to my own baggage. All of which impacted how I reacted or didn't react to the things going on in my house. After working through these items with my sponsor I was able to find my own voice and gain some self-esteem which I never realized I was missing because I was living in so much ego thinking I had everything under control. Now I am able to better let others take care of their own responsibilities without getting involved as well as love myself for who I am and set clear boundaries for what I need to live a healthy life. I am not perfect and neither is everything I deal with but I no longer feel like I live on a roller coaster and enjoy being able to have serenity even if the addicts in my life are in their addiction or not. I could not have done this without the help and love of the Cornerstone group. I will be forever grateful to this program, the staff, the teens and parent group."
