Why use Client Escort Service?
The client who has just been intervened upon needs
to be escorted by a family member, friend or professional to ensure
immediate admission to treatment.
It is often a very emotional, frightening and
confusing time for them. If left alone without continued
encouragement and support, they frequently will talk themselves out
of going or rationalize that they will go at a later date. They
sincerely have every intention of going later but rarely follow through.
Family members and friends are usually emotionally
exhausted after the intervention process and all the events that lead
up to the decision that an intervention was necessary. It is very
difficult for family and friends to remain objective and they can be
more easily manipulated by their loved one's attempts to renege on
their commitment to treatment.
It is also a time where the loved one may need
"space" to process feelings related to the intervention,
and, to reflect on the events of their lives leading up to their need
The interventionist or professional escort is
prepared for and understands all of the above. They have the ability
and training to remain objective, but supportive, while empathizing
with your loved one's doubts, fears, anger, etc. Clients escorted by
the interventionist are more likely to follow through with admission
