Benchmark Provides a FULL Continuum of Care for Recovery

The Importance of a Gender Specific Recovery Program 

Studies prove that gender specific programs have higher rates of success. Benchmark Recovery Center has a men’s program and a women’s program, in two separate facilities on two separate properties, where men help men and women help women.

Our Proven Approach is Successful

The success of our program is indicated by the number of alumni who are still sober. Through objective data collection and tracking we are able to determine the number of residents who have successfully completed our program and report continuous sobriety.

Extended Care is Essential to Long-Term Sobriety

Recovery from addiction is a life-long process. Our 15-month extended care program in Austin, Texas provides relapse prevention and includes three major components…residential, aftercare monitoring and sober living.

A Different Kind of Chemical Dependency Program in Austin, Texas

Benchmark-Bluebonnets-Cactus-Austin-TexasWhether you have completed alcohol treatment or drug rehab multiple times or have never been to any type of a structured 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 addiction and substance abuse. 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 Rehab and Alcohol Treatment is Not Enough

A certain percentage of men and women who complete a 30-day addiction treatment or drug rehab program will not be ready to return to society and day-to-day living. Others may actually relapse shortly after completing a narcotic or alcohol rehab program, only to feel an even more debilitating sense of failure regarding their disease.

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?”

Hope Beyond Addiction 

Unfortunately, many of these 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 substance abuse and alcohol rehab 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.

Tools That Promote Permanent Sobriety 

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 prescription medicine, marijuana, cocaine, and other harmful stimulants.

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 substance abuse and drug 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 substance use and abuse history without having developed the inner resources and life skills necessary to maintain their sobriety.

A Drug and Alcohol Rehab Program that offers Extended Care

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 rehab and alcohol rehab program has been so effective for hundreds of men and women 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. Two separate Benchmark sober living residences are conveniently located in Central Austin, just minutes from Downtown Austin and Austin Bergstrom Airport.

What Sets Benchmark Apart From Other Drug Rehab and Alcohol Rehab Programs 

Benchmark-alcohol-and-drug-rehab-centerDrug rehab and alcohol treatment programs 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

If you are currently in an alcohol treatment or drug treatment program and feel you need extra support or just a different type of experience, we urge you to call us for a confidential consultation at no charge.
