Our Story


Stonewater Adolescent Recovery Center is located on 62 acres of grasslands in the rolling, green hill country of Northern Mississippi. The custom-built residential stone lodge overlooks a peaceful lake, providing a safe and protective environment removed from the pressures of the outside world. At Stonewater, we offer our patients a home where they can feel the comfort to explore nature and focus on removing themselves from the mindset of addiction. The Fikes family built the Stonewater program out of sincere compassion for young males facing addiction and a first-hand experience with the heartache and distress which threatens to destroy a family in addiction's wake.

Bryan Fikes, part of the founding family, began to face the pressures of fitting in and finding his place as an early adolescent. Although active in sports and the community, Bryan struggled to find his identity as a growing and developing young person. This search eventually led Bryan to a peer group who introduced him to drugs, alcohol and an ongoing search to find the next high. Although there were countless emotional, mental and physical evidences of his addiction, Bryan's family mistook them for signs of puberty and normal development for a young male. When Bryan's addiction ultimately led him to arrest and jail, his family then faced the fear and uncertainty of how they could save him.

Through an extensive, multifaceted rehabilitation program, Bryan was eventually able to reconnect with his family, his Christian faith and a purpose that opened his heart to wellness and a healthy way of thinking. After learning first-hand the obstacles an individual and family face when confronted with adolescent addiction, from finding an effective treatment program to restoring relationships for complete family healing, the Fikes family committed to creating a safe and secure haven for other adolescents to reengage with their youth and find lifelong healing. The customized programs for each patient at Stonewater Adolescent Recovery Center are designed to build a solid, lasting foundation, promote cleansing and renewal to start anew, and ultimately bring families back together for the ongoing journey of recovery.

From the Ashes
We Rise

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.

Stonewater Understands

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.

The Addiction Treatment Program At Stonewater

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.
