Various research findings show that men and women recover from drug addiction and alcohol addiction differently. It may help, therefore, to keep drug and alcohol recovery separate for women and men so that equal attention can be given to each.
Recovery from alcohol and drug addiction is a life-long process
Studies have shown that the first twelve months from the time a person receives care addressing their addictions is the most vulnerable period and that relapse is a likely factor.

A Different Kind of Drug Rehab Center in Austin, Texas
Whether you have completed alcohol treatment or drug rehab multiple times or have never been to any type of a structured treatment program, the Benchmark Recovery Center (formerly Mark Houston Recovery) offers a full continuum of care for addiction recovery.
Benchmark Recovery Center offers an extended-care recovery program for adult men and women struggling with alcoholism and drug addiction. Located east of Austin, Texas on 70 acres, the gender-specific 90-day residential program focuses on the 12 Steps, life skills, spirituality and fitness. After completing the residential phase, residents transition into company-owned sober living and 12 months of aftercare monitoring. If you‘re ready to learn how to live a sober, responsible, committed life full of promise, we’re here to help you.
When Drug and Alcohol Treatment is Not Enough
A certain percentage of men and women who complete a 30-day addiction treatment program will not be ready to return to society and day-to-day living. Others may actually relapse shortly after completing a drug or alcohol rehab program, only to feel an even more debilitating sense of failure regarding their alcoholism or drug addiction.
It is at this point that these addicts and their families ask themselves: “What can I do to truly recover from my alcoholism or drug addiction? What relapse prevention tools or length of program does it take to achieve long-term sobriety?”
Unfortunately, many of these alcoholics or addicts as well as the people in their lives begin to believe that there is no hope for a life without addiction. The Benchmark Recovery Center (BRC) offers that hope. Our unique drug and alcohol rehab center located in Central Texas, combines the elements of a longer length of stay (minimum 90 days), a gender-specific environment, ranch-style residential homes in a private rural setting, and a staff that models recovery at the highest levels, along with a robust program that addresses every aspect of recovery.
By regaining strength in your body, mind and spirit, you will learn how to manage your life from the inside out rather than attempting to control it by abusing drugs, alcohol, and other harmful substances.
You will learn new life skills, regain or acquire financial sanity, improve your physical strength through fitness and nutrition, and establish new attitudes that contribute to a healthy lifestyle and peace of mind. Permanent sobriety cannot be obtained through chemical dependency abstinence alone.
Our drug and alcohol rehab program addresses each area of your life…physical, mental and spiritual. Many people require a longer continuum of care and specific relapse prevention tools. All too often, residents leave a residential alcohol treatment or drug rehab center and return to the same environments that were a part of their active alcoholism and drug addiction history without having developed the inner resources and life skills necessary to maintain their sobriety.
Outcome studies show that the longer a person is in a structured supportive recovery program, the greater their chances are of staying sober. That is why the Benchmark drug and alcohol rehab center has been so effective for hundreds of addicts and alcoholics who have attended their program since 2006.
After completing the minimum 90-day residential phase of the program, residents can choose to move into Benchmark-owned gender-specific sober living and to start a 12-month aftercare monitoring program called Segue, both designed to provide the additional structure and support essential for long-term recovery.
What Sets Benchmark Apart From Other Drug Rehab and Alcohol Rehab Programs
Drug rehab programs and alcohol treatment centers may all have the same common goal, but they are each unique in the population they serve and the type of programming they offer.
Some drug treatment centers focus more on the medical aspects of addiction whereas others have a holistic approach.
Here are a few of the things that make the Benchmark program highly effective for those who are getting sober for the first time or have chronically relapsed:
• An extended care program with a minimum of 90 days of residential care and 12 months of aftercare monitoring
• Programs and facilities are gender-specific with gender-specific staff
• All staff members are in 12 Step recovery…they “walk the walk” not just “talk the talk”
• A family-oriented culture where family members are welcome, involved and included in all Benchmark events and alumni activities
Benchmark has a reciprocal referral relationship with drug treatment centers and alcohol rehab programs around the country. When a person applies to enter the Benchmark program, we make every effort to make sure it is a good fit for that individual and when it is not an appropriate fit, we refer within our trusted network of recovery providers. By the same token, we accept referrals from other facilities on a regular basis.
There is a culture at Benchmark unique to alcohol and drug rehab centers. It is warm, supportive environment that will not only help you get sober, but will show you how to build the life you always wanted.
Our alumni and their families continue to stay involved with Benchmark long after the program has ended and they are our greatest referral source. Staying sober and referring others is the best measure of success we could ever ask for. Contact Benchmark today at 866·905·4550
