Behavioral Misconduct

At Benchmark Behavioral Health we believe all individuals have areas of strength on which future success can be built and that change is possible. We believe all individuals have within them the potential to change. We also believe our program can offer a secure and therapeutic environment where learning and change can occur through:

  • Emotional regulation
  • Developing coping strategies
  • Building communication skills
  • Enhancing empathy
  • Engaging in healthy behaviors

Through our various programs, residents are able to address traumatic events, stress, depression, attachment issues and a myriad of other problems to develop new skills and ways of coping and prepare to discharge.

In our residential treatment setting, Benchmark Behavioral Health provides 24-hour supervision for teen males between the ages of 13–17 on our behavior misconduct milieus. The youth in our program have a various psychiatric issues such as anxiety, bipolar disorder, reactive attachment, conduct disorder, oppositional defiant, depression or other problems areas that have resulted in dismissal from other out-patient services or other treatment facilities.

Through our treatment program, each resident has an individual treatment plan, which is based on history and evaluations given during the admission process to help diagnose problem areas. Each of our residents receives individual, family, and group therapy, which also include medication management. Residents also receive educational services through our own nationally accredited on-campus school with teachers who are special education certified. Residents receive recreational therapy where they learn skills needed for daily living and enjoyment.

Our program consists of a variety of groups conducted by staff members or licensed clinicians. Staff members provide psycho educational groups from social skills to healthy relationships and building communication skills. Licensed clinicians provide groups for anger management, substance abuse, and victim empathy.

Our four adolescent male behavior programs are named Olympus, Wasatch, Uinta and Timpanogos. These programs are geared towards providing a safe and therapeutic environment, which promotes change through the building of new social and interactive skills. These surroundings are designed to work with individuals with consideration of their ages, symptomology and cognitive abilities.

Through our program, residents learn to respect others along with themselves as they learn to build on their own individual strengths and competencies to prepare for discharge and plan for the future. All programs feature a multi-level behavior program that promotes appropriate interactions and skill building in dealing with situations our residents find frustrating.
