Once the decision has been made for an individual suffering from behavioral health issues to accept and enter into treatment the very important question may arise regarding how the client will arrive safely to treatment. This question is again often brought up upon the client’s successful completion of treatment. How will this client will be transported safely back to their home environment or to their next level of recommended/extended care treatment?
Safe travel can be extremely difficult and challenging for individuals entering into or leaving treatment as well as for their families. Due to various physical and/or emotional reasons, the transporting of a loved one may not be an appropriate role for family members.
As a Masters Level, Licensed Clinician with over fourteen years of experience in the field of mental health and addiction, I offer clinical support, encouragement and companionship during this crucial and critical time. Individuals and families work extremely hard with the treatment centers in finalizing the details of an admission and/or discharge. However, unless a clinical transport component is addressed and streamlined it could be the difference between a successful treatment admission or safe discharge, even to the extent of a continued downward spiral or potential relapse.
As a former flight attendant, I understand how to use travel to be able to address the safety and medical needs of those who I am clinically transporting. In addition, I personally assist and arrange the travel details ahead of time so that there is one less stressor for families and individuals. Throughout the entire transport process, I am able to provide the treatment facility and family support system with necessary on-going updates in order to keep everyone involved with the most current information.
Please consider using Heartfelt Recovery for a licensed clinical transport for someone entering into treatment or upon discharge to ensure a safe journey and smooth transition.
