The organization has facilities located throughout Illinois, Indiana, Tennessee and Florida. Substance abuse treatment at Centerstone is offered as both standard outpatient and Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) for teens and adults. Additionally, Centerstone offers a residential program for adults struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders as well transitional living services at the Florida facility. Clients also benefit from a continuum of care with detox, residential, Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP) and IOP.

Accommodations and Food

Centerstone is a behavioral health hospital located in a residential neighborhood with 27 beds available for inpatient care. Rooms are typically double occupancy though occasionally three clients share a room. All rooms are gender-specific with a private bathroom.

Rooms are minimally furnished with twin beds, dressers and small cabinets to store personal items. Residents are expected to bring appropriate clothing. Laundry services are available on-site, as is a gym which clients can use for an hour each day.

Meals are served three times a day in a cafeteria setting. Breakfast options include eggs and bacon while lunch and dinner generally include assorted vegetables, meat dishes and rice or a similar starch. There are also cold food options like cereal, toast and sandwiches. Upon arrival at the facility, residents are permitted one small grocery bag of dried goods with them as well. Tobacco is strictly prohibited.

Treatment and Staff

Residential treatment at Centerstone typically lasts 30 days. During treatment, clients attend programming seven days a week. A standard week consists of individual and group therapy, family therapy, daily 12-step meetings, fun outings and on-site recreational activities. Those in need of medication management also meet with a staff psychiatrist every day. Treatment incorporates CBT and DBT as well as the 12 steps.

Aside from these standard modalities, alternative therapies like aromatherapy, meditation, yoga and massage therapy are provided as well. These services are available sporadically—except for massage therapy, which is scheduled every other Friday. Groups occur throughout the day while individual sessions are scheduled independently. There are also mandatory family therapy sessions every Saturday during scheduled visitation hours. Visitation runs from 1 to 4 pm, with family therapy held from 1 to 2 pm. Generally, these sessions focus on relapse prevention and healthy communication.

PHP is available for those stepping down from inpatient care as well as those in need of less intensive treatment. This track requires clients to attend at least 20 hours of group therapy a week. Clients in PHP participate in the same groups as those enrolled in the residential track. Each individual works with a therapist to develop an individualized treatment plan catered to their needs.

The six week IOP meets three days a week for three-hour group sessions. This is the only phase of treatment available to both adults and teens. Groups are held on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30 to 8:30 pm and divided by age group. Clients also attend an hour of individual therapy each week. The clinical staff at Centerstone includes, psychiatrists, CSACs and LPCs.


Both adolescent and adult IOP and standard outpatient groups are available at Centerstone’s Illinois, Indiana and Tennessee outpatient facilities. These programs consist of several two to three hour-long group sessions each week along with individual therapy. Support for co-occurring disorders is typically offered in the form of medication management and therapy.

Other care options include senior and caregiver services, crisis services for adults and children, mental health counseling, in-home counseling, residential and transitional housing programs for adults with developmental disabilities, foster care and adoption services, military counseling and Employee Assistance Programs (EAP). There’s also a Regional Intervention Program (RIP) for children and families which consists of training and therapeutic support aimed at teaching parents how to work with their children. This option is available at Centerstone’s Clarksville facility in Tennessee.

In Summary

Overall, Centerstone Addiction Center offers a comprehensive range of behavioral health services. The facility is part of an expansive organization, with a residential recovery track as well as a range of outpatient facilities providing structured substance abuse and mental health programs for teens and adults. With holistic treatment options used in conjunction with evidence-based traditional methods, the well-rounded approach to substance abuse treatment helps adolescents and adults establish a strong foundation for lasting recovery.

  1. DO NOT TAKE YOUR CHILDREN HERE…THEY CONDONE AND COVER UP CHILD ABUSE(ERS)!!!! My 7yr old son was a victim of Centerstone’s immoral, and unethical business practices!!!! They will hurt your child like they did mine, and you will hurt without any of them caring what they have done!! The CEO DAVID GUTH JR…is the HEAD HORRIBLE HUMAN of this organization!! He is aware of the harm they caused my child, and his office blocked me from even posting on their FACEBOOK ads about this harm to a child to further cover up their child abusing ways!!! PLEASE WARN ALL PARENTS ABOUT THEM!!! TELL THEM GET THEIR CHILDREN AWAY BEFORE THEY HURT THEIR CHILD LIKE THEY HAVE MINE!!!

  2. I have a complaint toward this person who does your insurance, financial intake interview at Center stone on 2020 26th av east Bradenton, FL, Who ever was working on 02/16/18 at 11am

    During my interview with a Male Staff employee,My privacy, ethics and right for respect and non discrimination judgement were breach. Every moral code under this center stone code of conduct were broken by this employee.
    Why I dare to come here and humiliate myself by exposing my experience because I cannot stand employees taking advantage of vulnerable patient and being abused and invaded in such ways. And if noone will say anything I will. I have been there in their shoes and remember this atrocities going on in Free places for people in poor living and financial situation. What iam saying is that I m not asking for the best workers the best attitude staff but at least not employees who take specific jobs in vulnerable places in the main purpose to harm. It’s so wrong and sadistic because if you put a sick child, a mental I’ll patient or a abused woman and put them at his mercy there a lots of chance that person will get hurt emotionally and could harm themselves in the result
