Can’t say enough about how amazing this program is. If you think there is no hope, highly consider Benchmark. It has changed our families life. I am forever in their debt.

This was my daughters third rehab facility. We were hopeless and frankly exhausted from worry. She will soon be celebrating her 12 months of sobriety. The team of professionals have been so supportive...

I have been with Benchmark for little over a year. I have attended several different programs and this one is really great and aimed towards young adults. What makes benchmark different is the way the...

One week ago today my son, who just turned 26, completed his program at Benchmark. He was placed at Benchmark through our insurance at a very critical time in his life. His addiction had taken him to ...

I was a client at Benchmark Transitions for a little over four months, and I have nothing but positive things to say about this company. I had been struggling with addiction and behavioral issues for ...

My 20-year-old son will be coming home from Benchmark next week, after a 5-month stay. When we arrived, we were given a full tour and I met everyone who would be working with my son. I felt more comfo...

My experience at Benchmark Transitions had its ups and downs. Fortunately for myself, i had a case manager that advocated and backed me up to the best of his ability. I had two therapists during my st...

First off I would like to start by saying how much this program did not help me at all; if anything they put me through more troubles and stress then I have ever been in. I have been here for 9 months...

The doctors are extremely professional and I benefited from their aid for the last six months. I would recommend coming here to anyone with an addiction. The entire RA staff is helpful.-LC

When I arrived here I was an absolute mess and unstable to say the least. I was convinced I didn’t have a drug problem and I refused to even dare compare or relate to the people in the room. After t...

We are anxiously awaiting the return of our son. today as he has completed the program at Benchmark after nine long months. It was a leap of faith for us to trust our 18 year old in someone else's car...

Watch your wallet, folks... We asked what total cost would be and if everything is included in that quote. They assured us it all was. Then they proceeded to bill us for extra items, way over billed. ...

Benchmark transitions helped us through a very tough period in our life when our child was out of control due to Marijuana use and undiagnosed Bipolar disorder. This is a place about families helping ...

They really worked with us to make sure we could get the help we needed. We very much appreciated the extra effort this treatment program made.

Ten years ago, we didn\'t know if we would ever see our son again. Learning disabilities, mental health issues, and isolation that led him to choose druggie friends left him adrift. Terrified, we relu...

It was v e r y helpful when I first got here, they\'re there when I need them even now, it\'s just my parents that are the issue of not letting me come out of this program because they\'re scared.

Very poorly managed.

Though the program is very effective for those in recovery, their behavioral health program is lacking. If you wish to be enrolled and have food allergies or other dietary restrictions, be sure to men...


Areas of Focus
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

The focus of cognitive behavioral therapy (also called CBT) is helping people to understand the thoughts and emotions that underlie their addiction with the goal of learning new, healthier and more productive ways to understand and express themselves.

Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.

    Jayne Selby-Longnecker, M.Ed. - Chief Executive Officer/Founder

    Benchmark was founded in Southern California on September 9, 1993 by Jaynie Longnecker-Harper, who has long been considered to be a leader in the industry of special education for adolescents and transitional living programs for young adults. As a single parent of four children, Jaynie understood all too well that many young people, and their frustrated families, faced a lack of resources in their struggle for self-reliance. With her education, experience and first-hand understanding of addiction, Jaynie set out to provide a real-world setting where troubled teens and struggling young adults could learn to emerge into independence.
