Transitioning out of treatment and into the “real world”

Benchmark Transitions Independent Living Services

Benchmark’s Independent Living Services (ILS) program provides an individualized option for the on-going aftercare needs of young adults, 18-28 years of age. ILS is specifically designed to support our clients as they transition out of treatment at Benchmark Transitions and into the “real world.” Studies show that the longer a young adult remains in an encouraging treatment environment, the better their chances are in attaining the skills necessary to maintain their sobriety, manage their behaviors, focus on education and career development and live independently.

ILS Clients must have demonstrated at least 90 days sober with no relapse, must have obtained a part time job and/or be working and volunteering at least part time. They must have completed at least 90 – 120 days of a structured therapeutic treatment program, either via Benchmark Transitions Primary Residential Program and Extended Care Program, or another similar level of care program. ILS is not a typical starting point for new clients and must be approved by clinical treatment team and admissions.

The Independent Living Services program offers more than a traditional stand-alone aftercare or Sober Living.  ILS can be designed to meet each young adult’s individual needs. We offer both on property and off-property options.

On-Property Independent Living

 

ILS clients continue to reside in a resort-style, gated community, with luxury amenities such as swimming pool and spa, clubhouse with fireside lounge, putting green, picnic areas and BBQ grills, game room (pool table), media room, state of the art fitness room and lush gardens. Located near bus lines and shopping, the apartments provide easy access to Benchmark’s Outpatient and Learning Center, as well as to local colleges and community services.
