The Benchmark Transitions Young Adult Program

Benchmark Transitions® is a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary approach to therapeutic transitional living for young men and women, ages 18-28.

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. Our level-based curriculum is designed to be completed in 6 months, with an average length of stay approximately 9-12 months. Extended care options are available.

Benchmark is designed to be a step-down transitional 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.
