At Benchmark Recovery Center, it is not uncommon to see residents who have successfully completed the drug and alcohol rehab program in the past come back again. It is extremely important to note here that going back to a drug and alcohol rehab program such as Benchmark Recovery Center is NOT considered a failure.
In fact, there is a good chance that drug addicts and alcohol addicts will go through repeat instances in which they need to seek help at a drug rehab center or in a drug rehab program for their drug or alcohol addiction. Luckily, Benchmark Recovery Center offers some excellent options for residents including the 30-day recovery program option as well as the 90-day recovery program option.
Drug Relapse is NOT Failure
Part of what makes former drug addicts or alcohol addicts think that they’ve “failed” is based on how they perceive themselves to be as well as the types of expectations they put out there for themselves. When you pressure on someone to stay sober and drug free after they’ve struggled with drug and alcohol related problems, you are actually making it more difficult for them to try to overcome their addiction. A large part of the drug and alcohol recovery process is contingent upon the individual. Do they recognize that they need the help? Have they accepted the help? Are they committed to making an effort to get clean and sober?
At Benchmark Recovery Center, we have discovered that there are many different types of relapse triggers that can cause a person to engage in risky behavior. That being said, we encourage you to read through some of these relapse triggers and what they are on our website. The more informed you are about what the relapse triggers are, the more likely you’ll be able to recognize and hopefully intercept a problem before it’s too late.
Keeping all of this in mind, Benchmark Recovery Center is a private residential center located just outside of Austin, Texas where adult men and women can enroll in either our 30-day program or our 90-day program after first having been treated in a drug and alcohol treatment program. We believe that by maintaining a gender-specific facility, a small number of beds with a high staff to resident ratio as well as by continuing to instill in each of our residents various “life skills,” residents will leave our drug and alcohol recovery program better equipped to lead sober and drug free lives.
