Benchmark’s educational services are provided on site through our regionally accredited school. Services are provided by state licensed teachers. Students who require special education services will receive those services by a teacher who is certified in special education. An individual education plan will be implemented and updated as necessary for all special education students.
All therapeutic recreation activities are developed by a certified therapeutic recreation specialist and facilitated by a therapeutic recreation technician. Patients develop skills to enhance confidence, self-esteem and courage in supervised community recreational activities.

Benchmark’s patients have the opportunity to participate in a vocational program designed to develop the skills necessary to obtain and maintain pro social employment. This program provides experience in food service, maintenance, retail sales, teaching assistant and library assistant.
