In defining a name which would embody the unique philosophy of Stonewater's adolescent addiction treatment program, it was important to incorporate the cornerstones of successful recovery. Recovery must be built upon a strong foundation that can support comprehensive wellness and positive lifelong behaviors within adolescent patients. Simultaneously, recovery must incorporate cleansing, both body and mind, of addictive behaviors to allow renewal and restoration in the aftermath of addiction. “Stone” represents the solid rock upon which one builds lifelong recovery while “water” represents the continuous cleansing and purification as one overcomes addiction. Stonewater commits to help your child and your family learn and understand the tools necessary to emerge restored and equipped for successful long-term recovery.
Like you and your family, our family has struggled with the most difficult parts of addiction. We strive to help families and adolescent males find a place they can open up and explore their emotions and triggers for substance abuse freely without fear, worry or guilt. Addiction is complicated, so we offer a customized continuum of care for each child that establishes the building blocks for long-term success. Our highly-trained, dedicated team of specialists in addiction treatment, wellness and education come together to give Stonewater life. When your family arrives on the grounds of Stonewater, our hope is that you feel welcomed, secure and assured. At Stonewater Adolescent Recovery Center, we take every step possible to offer you clarity, comfort, and relief from the confusion of how best to treat your child. And if Stonewater isn't right for you, we'll help you to find a place that is. From our family to yours, welcome to finding freedom from the ties of addiction.
At Stonewater, our blessings are our patients. Each young person is different, so our approach to each addiction is individualized. We know that addiction is more than just the chronic use of a substance, so treatment focus is not another “just say no” approach. After proper assessment, our team of professionals will work to create the best possible plan to facilitate lasting change - change that is not only visible in the treatment setting but as the adolescent re-adapts to life outside.
The Stonewater staff is meticulously selected because they represent the best in the treatment industry. Whether the diagnosis be substance use disorder or a combination of disorders, our clinical staff will not limit your loved one to a diagnosis. We build on the inherent strengths of the individual through Godly wisdom, shared goals, addressing trauma and helping the adolescent identify and achieve newfound purpose and goals.
The Stonewater treatment process is designed to help patients positively change behaviors, such as increasing individual choice for abstinence, developing positive social connections, establishing meaningful involvement in one’s own education, decreasing potential for involvement in illegal activities and learning to make positive healthy choices. It is through theses outcomes that we believe an adolescent will mature and develop a strong foundation from which they can build upwardly throughout their life. Past hurts will no longer dictate future decisions and healing from these hurts will establish the strength needed to achieve lasting recovery.
Stonewater Adolescent Recovery Center provides 24-hour supervision for adolescent males in a 45-100 day residential living space with well-furnished semi-private rooms for each individual’s comfort. The staff maintains engagement throughout the entire stay. Stonewater provides withdrawal management, mental health assessment, individual therapy, group therapy, physical fitness programs, mindfulness practice and fun recreational activities along with a personalized transferable academic curriculum. Every thread of addiction will be addressed throughout each individualized treatment stay.
I would recommend to any parent – if you’re seeing serious signs of isolation and depression or if your son went through a traumatic event, you need to contact Stonewater. We as parents wish we would’ve done something sooner.- Parents of Conner, Stonewater Graduate
Stonewater gave me coping skills to deal with my depression, because I can’t fix the depression, I can just fix how I deal with it. Before, drugs were my only coping method…I never thought I would be able to be where I am at right now. I have a ways to go, but Stonewater definitely put me on the right path.- Stephen, Stonewater Graduate
The Fikes family have their own story and I think that that helps tremendously, because they know what it’s been like to go through it. They can’t just sympathize, but also empathize with families. My advice to other parents is to make the decision, it doesn’t matter what time of year it is, make the decision. It’s the right thing to do for your kid and your family.- Parents of Stephen, Stonewater Graduate
For the past couple of years, I have let addiction control my life…I have ended up in jail, caused problems for my family and have lost opportunities. I am blessed that I went through this program. I want to be known as a changed young man and a great family guy that is putting effort into life. I have a great plan by God for me and I plan to be able to live my life clean and happy….It is my time to make a great change.- Bryson, Stonewater Graduate
Stonewater saved my son’s soul…- Mother of Mark, Stonewater Graduate
I cannot not begin to describe how amazing this program is! I am forever grateful for them giving me my son back and leading him to the road to recovery. Stonewater’s staff is some of the best I’ve seen, I’ve myself have been in the industry for 10 years and they are some of the most compassionate, patient, caring people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting.- Joann K.
Words are not enough to express the thanks I owe to Stonewater Recovery and their staff. My teenage son had been struggling for quite awhile. Personality change, not going to school, going from A’s to F’s, no desire to take care of himself and no excitement to live life sober and many other behavioral changes. I searched high and low for the appropriate place to send my son. I found it in Stonewater and more. Right from the very beginning, the very first phone call until the day before I picked him up(today), I have been overjoyed with the progress my son has made. I have been so pleased with the professionalism, love, care, kindness and concern for me son. If you are remotely looking for a recovery place, where they treat the kids as family and let them know they are listened to and understood for who they are and best of all, I have my son back again. Take a chance, take that leap of faith and reach out and make that first phone call and let the professionals take over from there. You will NOT be disappointed. Eternally Indebted to Stonewater for having my son back again. Thank you!- Suzanne M.
