We entrusted our 18 year old son to Benchmark Transitions. It was a leap of faith and he fell into the arms of the most caring and compassionate staff member, Ishmael Robles. While all the staff members are caring and treated our son like family, Ishmael went above and beyond. He served as a surrogate father in our absence. We sent our son over 2,000 miles away to attend Benchmark at the most vulnerable time in his life and in our life as well. We are grateful to have our son back and healthy.
Family owned and operated. Real people who are very experienced, knowledgable and, most importantly, care greatly. Young people face lots of headwinds in today's world, and Benchmark is an ideal choice if needing to get back on track with whatever is holding a young adult down in their life.
I've witnessed Benchmark Transitions not only get young adults back on track, but actually save people's lives. We live in an era when drug use is becoming more common, and unfortunately people don't see the downside of the ruined lives that often follow. Benchmark has been honing their effective skills for decades, and I encourage anyone needing help getting past whatever it is holding them back from gaining a healthy, independent adulthood to consider Benchmark.
At Benchmark Transitions, I was given an environment where I was free from our chaotic, ever-distracting society, far enough away from fast-paced temptations commonly found in big cities. Consequently, I was able to develop a clear process for expanding each moment and finding my core inside. With the supportive community of over fifty young men and women, we were able to explore and express our truth. I had a chance to honestly look at the life I had created and yes, the messes and bad choices I had made. Every day I experienced a new challenge. However, it was overcoming these challenges that helped me establish the confidence I carry with me today. In addition to helping me see what I was worth, Benchmark Transitions taught me many of the life skills that I carry with me today. The Work Education and Creative Art departments helped me to discover my self-efficacy. Whether it was fixing a broken toilet, designing a glass-mosaic table, changing a light bulb or handcrafting various pieces of woodwork, I learned that I can finish anything that I start. I learned how to manage my money, grocery shop on a budget, and create a maintainable living plan. The program provided me with the structure I needed to remain focused and the freedom I needed to develop my independence. I followed an individualized treatment plan that was catered to my specific treatment needs. I was continuously challenged to identify new avenues for personal growth and was provided with exceptional care from highly qualified individuals throughout the entire treatment experience. The program effectively transitioned me into the “real” world so that I was able to chase the dreams that I had lost sight of and become a productive member of society. I graduated Benchmark Transitions over four years ago and I recently graduated from college. I earned a Bachelors degree in Communication Studies and am now pursuing a career in the adolescent treatment industry. A dear friend from Benchmark Transitions once told me, “you have to experience adversity, that is how you learn. The strongest people out there, are the ones who laugh the hardest with a genuine smile, those are the people who have fought the toughest battles. Because they have decided that they are not going to let anything hold them down, they are moving on.” I can say with confidence that if it was not for the experience I had with Benchmark Transitions, I would not be where I am today.
