The Basics

Cornerstone Recovery Residences is a small sober living community just north of Atlanta in Sandy Springs, Georgia. Cornerstone is designed for people who are in their first year of recovery. It is made up of 16 residents.

Accommodations and Amenities

Cornerstone consists of four apartments in the same complex. Three of the residences have two bedrooms and two bathrooms, while the fourth is a three-bedroom apartment. Residents all share bedrooms with one other resident of the same gender. Each unit has a washer and dryer as well as high-speed Wi-Fi and an on-site gym.

Since Cornerstone stresses independence, it doesn’t provide meals or cleaning supplies. Clients are responsible for planning, purchasing and cooking their own meals and a weekly chore schedule provides each person with a cleaning task to make sure the residence is kept in good condition. Cornerstone does provide sheets, pillowcases and towels as well as other daily living necessities like toilet paper and hand soap.

Rules and Regulations

Residents must be employed, actively seeking employment, volunteering in the community or attending an outpatient treatment program to be considered for admission to the facility. A specialized “Recovery Dynamics” group is held once a week, as is a “Life Skills” group.

Residents must also take part in weekly on-site Big Book study sessions, are required to attend 12-step meetings, and are provided with case management services. Residents are given random drug and alcohol screenings and are expected to remain 100 percent sober while living at Cornerstone.

Cornerstone employs house managers who live on site and assist clients as well as a resident assistant who lives off property.

Extras

The close-knit community at Cornerstone enjoys low-key group recreation regularly, whether that means a trip to the bowling alley, a volleyball game or a barbecue at a local park.

In Summary

This small community is perfect for a person who is new in recovery who wants help to transition back to normal life. Its small number of residents and personal attention make it perfect for someone who wants a structured sober living environment that feels like family.

Cornerstone Recovery Residences Cost: $1,000 (30 days, plus $375 admission fee). Reach Cornerstone Recovery Residences by phone at (404) 578-7167. Find Cornerstone Recovery Residences on Facebook

  1. Great Place! They have a new owner and management team!!! Not sure what was going on before but thank God I found this place. Truly has saved my life!

  2. Cornerstone recovery was my saving grace! The director took me under her wing and showed me a life i never thought i would be able to reach. She helped guide me as I took baby steps until I can fully walk on my own. The smaller community (compared to other halfway houses) provided me with a team of people who had the same goal as i did…sobriety! They were there for me when i needed someone to talk to and always willing to encourage me to keep pushing through. My one on one counseling open my eyes 2 things about myself I never realized before. I was able to understand me and why I am the way I am for once in my life! There’s no telling where I would be if I hadn’t found Cornerstone Recovery! The most amazing part of it all is that Charmon not only helped me get clean but eight years ago she did the same for my father! Because of her and Cornerstone Recovery I now have a clean healthy sober life as well as my dad and for her and Cornerstone I will be forever grateful!

  3. This was a very close knit community with great support and provided me with an outstanding network. I had lived my life in addiction so long that i no longer understood what it meant to function in a normal society. This place not only how to taught me how tip keep motivated but how to hold down a full-time job think before acting, and most of all what it means to love myself. I wouldn’t have made it to where i am today without Charmon and cornerstone and for that i will ever be grateful.

  4. Very expensive place with very little in return. If you are looking for the promised structure/ counseling, don’t go here. The director is never around. This is a rip-off playing on the emotions of loved ones looking for help.

  5. If you are looking for a very structured environment, this is not the place. My daughter spent 2 months in the cottage at $1800/month. We were promised individual weekly therapy. We got it twice, both times at my request. She was alone for about 6-8 hours per day with no direction. She eventually relapsed because she was not given any therapy or defenses toward staying sober. Was so disappointed. A lot of promises were made, but she was basically provided a place to live for two months. That was it.
