Substance abuse is a serious issue that affects millions of people in the United States, and getting treatment for addiction is an important step towards recovery. Substance abuse treatment programs provide individuals with the support, resources and tools necessary for making lasting changes to their lives.
Mental health treatment can be a powerful tool for individuals looking to improve their mental wellbeing and live happier, healthier lives. With the right combination of counseling, medication, lifestyle changes, and other therapies, many people find relief from the symptoms associated with mental health disorders.
The goal of relapse prevention in addiction treatment is to decrease the likelihood and intensity of relapse through cognitive-behavioral techniques. It involves recognizing possible triggers
Operating in Southern California since 1993, we’re one of the longest running transitional living programs specifically treating adults with emotional, behavioral, and alcohol or drug addiction issues.
With nearly 30 years of experience, Benchmark has been helping adult men and women recover their health, regain their family relationships, focus on new friends, and develop independence in a sober, supportive environment.
“When I arrived here I was an absolute mess and unstable to say the least. I was convinced I didn’t have a drug problem and I refused to even dare compare or relate to the people in the room. After the overdose I was scared for my life. I was unable to speak clearly enough for anyone to understand but the best blessing that came from it was a fresh start, a clear head, and a real understanding of powerlessness.
When I came to it was sickening – I realized how out of control my life had become in a matter of only a weekend. But Benchmark and my treatment team gave me the opportunity and chance I so desperately needed to better myself. The time I spent here was an absolute blessing and an opportunity of a lifetime.”
I’ve seen some amazing things occur with the clients that have come through the program at Benchmark. I’ve seen wonderful turn-around with clients that will not even speak to staff and hold their head down always, to walking with their head held high, showing confidence, smiling, interacting and being talkative with staff and coming alive right before my eyes!
The transformation is so great to see – it’s truly a blessing to see the effects the program has on the clients!!!
Our son is completing his program at Benchmark… we are thrilled with the progress he has made. But we are also sad because over the last 20 months we have built relationships with many of your staff and will miss them greatly. As you know, our son was really struggling when he entered Benchmark. He would rarely leave his room or even get out of bed and the situation at home was deteriorating rapidly. But through the amazing work of your staff and program, he is not the same person today. He is leaving as a young man who is maturing slowly but steadily.
He still has challenges but the nature has changed. He gets up every morning and likes walking to places around Redlands. He knows how to shop and cook for himself. With Ronnie’s coaching, he persisted in his job search and got a position at Cafe Rio where he was very successful for a while. Now he needs to focus on maintaining his employment for the long term. So we are grateful for the progress one step at a time.
We could go on and on about his progress and your wonderful staff. But we don’t want to send you a 10 page email : ) However we did want to write a few words to capture our feelings about Benchmark as he enters this new phase of his life.
My 25 year old son checked in this past Thursday. My first impression is extremely positive. I was introduced to everyone who will be involved in my son’s treatment. I was given a tour of the facility and his schedule of treatment was discussed. The next day I received a phone call from my son and one of his mentors. I also received an email with information pertaining to the Family Bridge, a portal where parents and family members can write to their loved one at Benchmark. I see photos of my son enjoying hiking and positive activities with his peer group. It is so important to me that I am “in the loop” and know what is happening with my son (even if he is an adult at 25).
He had gone to another rehab last year and that experience was very different. Though we had an appointment, we were kept waiting for hours. I was never introduced to the staff, the program was never discussed. I was told that I could not see the rooms. They seemed disorganized and overwhelmed.
Benchmark does feel warm, caring and like a family. The 18-28 age group is perfect for us. Aside from addiction recovery, my son is learning vocational, educational and life skills (such as money management & career counseling). I will post again after 6 months. So far, I feel optimistic and relieved.
