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.
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.
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.
