FAQ

Are you a “licensed” alcohol and drug treatment center?

A licensed facility is one that is legally regulated to provide medical care, so no, we are not medically licensed.  After experiencing our own recovery, we have invented a non-clinical program to provide rehab unavailable at traditional clinical treatment and sober-living homes. We do not fit into the traditional, medical, clinical facility model and thus, are not a “licensed” medical facility. We are a recovery/spiritual center that provides a very structured and comprehensive curriculum of life skills and spiritual practices which our residents will incorporate into their daily lives to bring about permanent recovery.

When do you conduct admissions?

Time and date of admissions will be coordinated by appointment only.

Do you take insurance?

No, we are private pay only. However, your insurance may be used for detox as well as prescription medications, if needed.

We also provide a long term continuum of care and have a 12-month monitoring program following discharge, staffed exclusively by Certified Recovery Coaches.

What are the qualifications of your staff?

All staff are in recovery from alcoholism and drug addiction and have adopted the way of living taught in Benchmark Recovery Center’s program. We teach from practical experience, not theory or opinion. Almost all of the staff have worked in the field of chemical dependency for many years.  Our Recovery Center has relationships with fine doctors and therapists if medical or psychological needs arise during the residents stay.  There are many fine treatment centers throughout the country if you need treatment.  If you have completed treatment and want to learn to live a sober, responsible, committed life full of promise and fun we can help.
