The Benchmark Transitions Young Adult Program
Benchmark Transitions® is a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary approach to residential transitional living for young men and women, ages 18-28.
"I learned how to reach new potentials I never would have dreamed of on my own."
Our dual-diagnosis model combines clinical treatment, behavioral health therapy, addiction recovery & aftercare, educational & vocational opportunities, job training and life skills in a structured and nurturing environment that fosters self-discovery and autonomy. Benchmark is a long-term residential program. Our level-based curriculum is designed to be completed in 9-12 months. Extended care options are available.
Benchmark is designed to be a step-down transition program for participants coming out of primary treatment programs, such as Detox, 30/60/90 day Residential Treatment Centers, Wilderness Therapeutic Programs, hospitalization/stabilization units, and for adolescents aging-out of Therapeutic Boarding Schools. Benchmark is also an ideal option for young adults who are “stuck” at home, with failure to launch issues.
Benchmark offers Dual Track Treatment Options:
- Benchmark Recovery & Aftercare students are those who have a history of substance use, abuse or addiction.
- Benchmark Behavioral Health students are those who have not exhibited issues with drugs and/or alcohol.
