With boundaries, it comes down to this: that you don’t support the illness, you support recovery.” ~ Christopher Kennedy Lawford
Searching for the right treatment program for a loved one facing a mental health or addiction crisis can feel like an impossible task, worsened by the pressure of time and a fear of stigma.
Treatment placement is a crucial part of the intervention process. We guide families through this action, and stay involved through what comes next, whether that’s family coaching, case management, or both. <links>
Our team members have visited hundreds of treatment centers across the country, scrutinizing the programs to which we refer our clients and ensuring they offer the services and support that fit that client’s individual needs. We sit down with each center’s clinical leadership and ask hard questions about their billing practices and programming. We also get feedback from their current clients or residents.
Why is this so important to my loved one’s recovery?
Over the last 5-7 years, some interventionists in our field have engaged in the unethical practice of getting paid incentives from treatment centers for bringing in clients. Some will only work with treatment centers that offer this kind of compensation.
As a result, clients end up in treatment programs that don’t suit their needs, which leads to failed treatment experiences and multiple treatment attempts (sometimes at $50,000 a pop). More egregious practices include overbilling on drug tests, and purposefully giving drugs to clients so they relapse and need to return to treatment.
Doyen is not affiliated with any such treatment provider, nor do we accept referral bonuses, payment for client admissions or any other unethical practices otherwise offered in the treatment community.
Our treatment recommendations always reflect your financial resources, insurance, clinical needs and individual desires.
What if my loved one doesn’t need that level of treatment?
Our plan always begins by meeting the client where they are. Sometimes, that means stabilization and residential treatment, and then transitioning into extended care. In other cases, it means finding effective outpatient providers (psychiatrists, therapists, therapeutic groups, etc.)
Whether it’s long term inpatient care or the implementing of outpatient resources, we cover logistics throughout the whole process, including weekly correspondence with the treatment team, your family and outside professionals.
Transport and Companion Services
Our trained professionals provide safe, sober, secure transport to, from and between treatment facilities.
We offer both female and male support, and provide multiple staff members when necessary. Our transport services are worldwide, and can extend to longer-term companion work for clients in need of support for business travel, family events or personal affairs.
