Benchmark Transitions is pleased to announce that it now offers young adult chemical detoxification services. Detoxification is typically the first step of intervention services designed to address chemical dependency, and the withdrawal of the chemical, as the initial step of the recovery process.
Common substance abuse detoxification includes:
- Benzodiazepines (Xanax, Klonopin, Valium, Ambien, etc.)
- Prescription Drugs
- Opiates (OxyContin, Vicodin, Fentanyl, Norco, Opana, etc.)
- Methadone / Suboxone
Detoxing with Benchmark is more comfortable in our home-like and peer group supportive living environment with trained and experienced staff. Each client receives a customized detoxification plan that may include a full health and medical assessment, individualized case management and counseling, 24/7 monitoring, routine drug and alcohol screening, individual and group therapy.
Detoxification varies on a case by case basis. Our addictions medicine physician and State California certified substance abuse counselors will monitor young adult clients throughout the detoxification process. A Benchmark Transitions addictions specialist physician will monitor the client and may prescribe medication to help the client cope with withdrawal symptoms. Detoxification alone is not adequate for the treatment of substance abuse-related disorders and should be implemented with the plan of ongoing substance abuse treatment services.
Benchmark Transitions® is a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary approach to residential transitional living for young adult men and women. Programs are individualized to meet each client's unique needs, offering a full continuum of care including Detox, Residential Treatment, Day Treatment (PHP), Intensive Outpatient (IOP), Transitional Living and Extended Care options. Length of stay can vary from 30 days to 2 years, depending upon individual needs.
Benchmark is licensed for residential detoxification via the State of California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS.)
