Cornerstone of Southern California
I would say that Cornerstone is one of the only ethical treatment centers in Southern California. It is sad that most of the reviews they get are from clients that don't understand the discharge process. They always feel that the only reason Cornerstone trys to keep clients as long as possible is to get more money out of them. The truth is that it is in order to give them the ABSOLUTE BEST chance of success when they leave the program. Most people leave treatment once they "feel better" which is not the right time to leave. People need a very solid foundation in recovery before stepping back into their old lives and surroundings and the good people at Cornerstone understand this. They are looking out for your BEST INTERESTS not milking you for money....Nothing is free in this world and no amount of money is too much to save your own life...Also they must be doing something right to be around for 32 years while other facilities seem to fold due to unethical practices.

Cornerstone is not a country club rehab center. The councilors work to help you kick the habit. If you are serious about overcoming addiction this is the right place. If you're just trying to circumvent the law, than this isn't the place for you.
Tips & Advices
If you don't have insurance, you may be able to find outpatient programs like Narcotics Anonymous that offer counseling and meetings for patients at no cost.
Some facilities accept health insurance like United Healthcare, BlueCross BlueShield, Cigna, Humana and Medicaid. Many carriers support in-state assessment, detox and outpatient treatment. Some also partially cover residential or inpatient treatment. Because drug addiction is considered a disease, major health insurance providers must treat it like any other chronic condition that requires medical treatment. Be sure to inquire about co-pays and deductibles so you don't receive a surprise bill months after you start a program.
Yes. Some treatment programs promote quick sobriety through seemingly impossible means, such as herbal supplements or religious affiliation. Be wary of questionable claims like, "Shake your drug addiction in one week!" If the advertising sounds too good to be true, the program could potentially be a scam. Instead, look for organizations that include approval and certification from real doctors and health care providers.
Yes. Attending a program that is specific to your drug of choice will make your treatment much more likely to be impactful and successful.  Some provide certain users with medications like Valium and Xanax to counteract symptoms of distress associated with alcohol or drug withdrawals. You may not want to attend such programs if you fear that you may instead become addicted to these substances.
Yes. A physician can determine how severe your addiction is, which will help you decide if you want to try inpatient or outpatient treatment. He or she can also consider any withstanding health issues such as psychiatric conditions that should be factored into your decision. Next, check out facilities and programs that offer treatment for the substances that you abuse.
