Stonewater Adolescent Recovery Center

Stonewater Adolescent Recovery Center Oxford Mississippi

Stonewater is a comprehensive substance use disorder treatment center, addressing adolescents, ages 12 to 17, needs across a continuum of care. From fully supervised Withdrawal Management all the way to Outpatient Services, our customized adolescent care is built on the latest scientific research and proven techniques to increase the likelihood of successful outcomes. Our founders have been there, where you are now, and understand that your child is an individual who needs an individualized recovery program which provides safety, privacy, security, and success.


Located in Oxford, Miss., situated on 62 acres of scenic, rolling hills, Stonewater Adolescent Addiction Recovery Center provides a full continuum of treatment programming for adolescent males struggling with chemical dependency and co-occurring mental health disorders. The facility provides a residential program, a partial hospitalization program (PHP), and an intensive outpatient program (IOP). If necessary, the facility also provides detoxification and withdrawal management services.


According to Stonewater Adolescent Recovery Center’s website, before beginning treatment, clients participate in an initial assessment to help clinicians develop an individualized treatment plan. If withdrawal management is necessary, the facility may utilize medication-assisted treatment to ensure a comfortable and safe detoxification process.

Stonewater’s programming blends a range of evidence-based treatment methods with experiential therapies and a private academic curriculum. While clinical treatment helps to identify factors that may lead to addictive behavior, experiential therapies are designed to promote healthy lifestyle changes.

Residential treatment requires a 30-day minimum commitment, although treatment can be extended to 60 or 90 days. During residential treatment, clients meet with a primary therapist for individual counseling, as well as attend group counseling sessions. In addition, residents participate in meditation and mindfulness practices and physical fitness training. Residents receive 24-hour supervision and are subject to regular drug screenings. Family members are encouraged to participate in family counseling sessions and attend group activity days as specified.

Experiential therapies play a large role in Stonewater’s treatment approach. Through the facility’s Adventure and Nature Therapy, clients participate in a range of activities, including ropes course challenges, rock climbing, equine therapy, and gardening. Residents also participate in art therapy sessions, which may include painting and clay sculpting, to promote free expression and reduce stress. In addition, Stonewater incorporates Christian principles and practices into programming, and clients may receive spiritual counseling and attend Bible study sessions.

To help clients stay current with academics, Stonewater provides an online-based curriculum accredited by the the University of Mississippi High School, and classroom credits are transferable. The private school integrates level-appropriate classroom instruction with recovery skills training and motivational reinforcement. Coursework is supplemented and supervised by a qualified teacher.

Once a client completes residential treatment, Stonewater encourages clients to “step-down” through its continuum of care. The facility’s intensive outpatient program (IOP) involves a minimum of nine hours (three sessions) of weekly programming. Offering treatment while a client resides at home, IOP includes individual, group, and family counseling, educational workshops, and experiential therapies. IOP lasts up to 15 weeks.


The facility’s website indicates Stonewater employs a multidisciplinary team comprised of a physician experienced in addiction medicine, master’s-level substance abuse counselors and mental health therapists, qualified teachers, experiential therapy specialists, an on-site chef, and a support staff.

Stonewater is exceptional!! My son received the best care and felt loved by all the staff. They all treated him like family. His therapist Molly was amazing and did an excellent job with Chris and our family. His nurse Sandy was wonderful and was with him through all his doctors appointments. His academic advisor Daniel did a great job keeping Chris on track. The weekly communication was great. Stonewater changed my sons life in the most positive way. When he graduated there were so many tears of joy plus the fact that we will all miss our Stonewater Family. It was a blessing to find Stonewater and I thank them for helping my family and caring so much. My son would not be where he is today without Stonewater!! Thank you so much❤️❤️
Stonewater was a life changing experience for my son. He went from being an angry and frustrated boy that wanted to leave as soon as possible to wanting to go to an after care program to ensure that he stays sober. The staff was very caring and respectful. God truly works miracles at Stonewater.
Stonewater was the best thing my parents could have ever done for me. I am grateful to a staff for his willingness to want to help change lives and for always being there to listen and to help me work on the deeper problems that I had. Stonewater changed my life.
