All Kinds of News for June 10, 2020
Redlands, CA - Benchmark Transitions is pleased to launch a 12-week Summer Intensive Clinical Transitional Living program for young adults, 18-28 years of age. The Summer Intensive is designed to provide young adults, who are struggling with mental health and substance use disorders, with a concentrated clinically supportive environment during the summer. Open Enrollment for the Summer Intensive is available throughout June, July and August, 2020 and programming can extend into the Fall. Discounted Transitional Living rates are being offered as well, to help families recover from the COVID-19 business closures.
"After months of Stay-At-Home orders, families are recognizing that their young adults are struggling with mental health issues like anxiety and depression, poor coping mechanisms, emotional disregulation and concerning amounts of substance use," states Jayne Longnecker-Harper, M.Ed., Founder and CEO of Benchmark Transitions. Benchmark's Summer Intensive provides 20-30 hours per week of evidence-based clinical programs that are specific to treating young adults. Programming includes individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy and psychiatric services that are facilitated by a team of dedicated credentialed, pre-licensed and licensed mental health and substance use disorders practitioners.
Benchmark's on-site educational department features a Master's level credentialed teacher who can assess transcripts, support with credit recovery and supervise on-line classes for high school and college credit repair. Benchmark's Summer Intensive curriculum includes outdoor experiential activities, animal care occupational program, independent living life skills, meal-planning and 24/7 awake staff supervision and support.
"Many young adults have missed out on some of the typical turning points such as prom and graduation. They have had to finish their school year with on-line classes in their bedrooms with limited social access. There is uncertainty about Fall classes and job availability. Young people are anxious about the world and their future. Benchmark offers a safe, structured experience to address their mental health, behavioral issues and substance use and prepare them for the future with life skills and educational support," summarizes Ms. Longencker-Harper. The Summer Intensive will provide young adults with the skills necessary to be prepared for school, jobs and independent living, as well as start them on a path towards improved mental health.
