Do You Really Want To Get Sober? What you need to know when choosing an alcohol rehab in Austin, Texas. There is no shame in admitting that you have an alcohol problem, and that you need help. In fact, it is empowering. However, the statistics on this particular problem are pretty bleak. Only about 15% of people who have a problem actually seek help, and out of that number, only 5% are able to achieve a life of sobriety. This means that it is very important that you seek the right help. But how do you choose a facility for alcohol rehab in Austin, TX? Here are a few things to help you get started on the road to recovery. http://ow.ly/RsMUT

At Benchmark Recovery Center, our belief is that alcoholism and drug addiction are life long, chronic, progressive diseases which demand a life long set of practices as a way of living if we are to experience permanent recovery. Our commitment to our residents is that we will provide a set of life skills and spiritual practices which will be incorporated and assimilated into their minds and hearts and allow them to recreate and reclaim their lives.

Benchmark Recovery Center saved my life! Three years ago I was stuck in drug addiction/alcoholism and didn't know where or who to turn to. I was almost never happy. I was alone. I mistreated friends and family. I certainly didn't have any self-respect. When I arrived to Benchmark after realizing that my life couldnt get any better, I was very uncomfortable. The positive side of that is there were 25 or more residents willing to help me and share their experience with me. It was a struggle in the beginning, but as I followed direction and worked on myself I began to lead a new life. I learned how to be sober, happy, confident, productive and so much more. I couldn't have done it without Benchmark.

This treatment facility was a nightmare. It was very cult-like. Anyone considering Benchmark should know what they are getting themselves into. Here are some of the things you can expect: -6 people per room (bunk beds) -You will always run out of hot water -You will spend at least 2-3 hours per day waiting in line for medication (you have to sit on the floor while you wait, not on the furniture that is in the same room) -If you are involved in a romantic relationship of any kind - boyfriend/girlfriend, fiancée, spouse - you will NEVER be allowed to speak with that person. Not on the phone, and not by mail. They will not give you the mail you received, and they will refuse to mail any letters you have written. -You will be allowed 1 10 minute phone call every Sunday, but it will be in front of a counselor over speaker phone. If you say anything negative about your stay, they will glare at you, and tell you not to do that when your call is over. -They will grossly violate your patient confidentiality rights. -If you are lucky, you will get an upstairs room. The downstairs rooms are like sleeping in a basement. -If you tell them you want to leave, they will yell at you, and tell you that you can't. -On Friday nights, you get their extra special treat, in exchange for a cigarette break! A Jello pudding cup.....wooohooo!!! -You will prepare all of your own meals, and also spend 1 hour per day cleaning the facility. 2-3 hours waiting in medication lines, meal prep time 3 times a day, and 1 hour cleaning. Not much time for meetings. *After reading all of this, if you still decide to go to Benchmark, hopefully it works for you, and you receive the help you need. But please do believe the information I have provided you with is an accurate account, and when you get there, you will find it to be true.

Response from the owner - a year ago
We are sorry to hear that your brief experience with Benchmark Recovery was not to your liking. Since you only participated in our program for one weekend, we do not believe that is an appropriate timeframe to evaluate our 15-month extended care program. We make every possible effort during the admissions process to disclose pertinent information about our program and to make sure, to the best of our ability, that we have a compatible fit with our residents. Should you wish to come in and discuss your grievances with us or consider giving our program another try, we would be happy to accommodate you. It has been our experience that when residents and their families are committed to the recovery process we are in an exponentially better position to assist them, and are wholeheartedly committed to doing so. We are most pleased that of the 996 residents that have invested in the process and completed the Benchmark Recovery Center program, 76% are still sober, and are recreating their lives based in permanent sobriety and gratitude. Regards, Marsha Stone, CEO of Benchmark Recovery Center

“No words can tell of the loneliness and despair I found in that bitter morass of self-pity. Quicksand stretched around me in all directions. I had met my match. I had been overwhelmed. Alcohol was my master.” Those words poignantly describe my very existence in the Spring of 2010. I had gone as far as my ability would take me, which was to the bitter end. I had shut the door completely on life. God didn’t. That April I ended up at the best recovery center in the country (Benchmark Recovery Center). Over the next four months, I learned not only how to get sober, but how to live a life of permanent sobriety and abundance from remarkable sober women mentors. They guided me through the twelve steps of Alcohol Anonymous and taught me how to connect to a power greater than myself. They taught me accountability, fellowship, and a life worth living. Thanks to Benchmark Recovery Center, their loving staff, and Mark Houston's vision, I am happy, joyous, and free today. In two weeks, I will celebrate two years of sobriety. I am forever grateful!

Benchmark Recovery Center saved my son's life. After a month at the center, during our first visit with our son, we saw a dramatic transformation in him. The huge smile on his face said it all. He was so relaxed and felt so good. He finally felt that he was on his way to living his life drug free. Each month we visited him, he just felt better and better because he was learning the tools he needed to stay sober. We will forever be grateful to Benchmark Recovery Center!

After twenty years of being crippled by alcoholism and addiction, a viable pathway to a new life was shown to me at Benchmark Recovery Center. I am forever grateful to the staff who guided me along the road to freedom and permanent sobriety, and to my family for loving me enough to get me the help I so desperately needed.

Benchmark introduced me to a new way of life. Over a year later I am still sober, rebuilding relationships, and approaching life with a renewed enthusiasm. Very grateful for my experience.

I ended my stay there after about 6 hours. I wasn't ready to be sober. It took more than two months for tgem to allow me to retreive my things that they wouldn't give me upon my leave. I was told that I had a year to change my mind and that the large amount of money that I paid would still be applicable. However, when I returned within the year to do my treatment, I was not greeted with open arms, or any arms for that matter. They would not return my phone calls, letters, or emails. And on top of all that my money was never returned to me, as they had promised. This was just my experience, though I have heard wonderful things contrary to my opinions. Make your recovery decisions based on your own needs, not the needs of someone else.
