Benchmark’s Strategic Shift to Young Adult Men’s Treatment
Redlands, CA – Benchmark Transitions, the longest running young adult specific treatment program, announces a strategic shift to gender specific treatment exclusively for young adult men, effective January 2021. According to Jayne Longnecker-Harper, M.Ed., founding owner and CEO, “Since our inception in September of 1993, we have monitored the climate of mental health and co-occurring substance use disorders among young adults to best meet their clinical, behavioral, emotional and educatonal needs. Now, nearly three decades later, we continue to see that young adult men are struggling with these concerns more than ever. Acknowleding this,” she concludes, “we are devoting our resources to exclusively young adult men’s treatment, beginning this year.”
Nicholaus Bond, LMFT, is Benchmark’s Clinical Director, heading up all clinical treament program services. “All-male treatment and group therapy has been proven to be highly effective,” summarizes Bond. “Young adult men tend to behave differently when around women. A single gender treatment program allows them to focus on their recovery, without social pressure or other distractions.”
