Our unique approach to helping young adults with co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders is based on a supportive transitional and sober living program, which serves as the foundation of our treatment model at Benchmark. Benchmark is a program created in 1993 to cater to the personalized requirements of young adults and their families during the treatment phase. Research indicates that the more time a young adult spends in a helpful treatment setting, the higher their likelihood of acquiring the proficiencies needed to sustain sobriety and mental wellbeing, regulate their conduct, concentrate on education and career progression, and live autonomously.
Transitional living is a form of supportive housing program that helps individuals in transition from homelessness, drug addiction, mental health issues, incarceration, and other difficult life circumstances. These programs provide individuals with safe and secure housing for a limited period of time (usually 6-24 months). During this time, participants are provided with basic services such as case management, counseling, job skills training, educational support and access to healthcare.
The goal of transitional living is to help individuals build the skills they need to live independently, find gainful employment and rerate into their communities. Through these programs, participants transition from a life of chaos instability to one of stability and-sufficiency.
