Benchmark Transitions Partners with Dr. Phil to Introduce Virtural Reality (VR) Therapy

Benchmark has integrated this groundbreaking virtual reality (VR) program, which is designed to help reduce recidivism and improve overall outcomes for residential substance abuse and chemical dependency treatment. Developed by Dr. Phil McGraw and Jay McGraw, and recently introduced on his #1 rated national talk show, Dr. Phil’s Path to Recovery, the VR program will add an influence to our young adult clients’ lives in the form of Dr. Phil himself – his distinctive voice delivered from exclusive locations that our patients would never normally have access to, including on-stage at his show and sitting with him in his private office. With more than 45 years of experience working in the mental health profession and addiction recovery, Dr. Phil understands like no one else what it takes for someone to make a drastic change in the direction of their life. As a complement to our current young adult chemical dependency and co-occurring treatment programs, Benchmark Transitions believes the Dr. Phil Path to Recovery curriculum will put our facility at the forefront of virtual reality technology in healthcare. We are proud to add this tool to our counselors’ treatment protocol and arsenal. Dr. Phil’s Path to Recovery is a powerful new tool in the fight against addiction. It is a virtual reality (VR) program in which individuals at Benchmark Transitions, can feel as though they’re actually face-to-face with Dr. Phil.
