Safe Passage Transitions
Both entering and completing treatment can be very stressful for individuals as it indicates imminent change. The travel to and from, in itself is a time when the unknown can cause extreme anxiety which often results in high risk choice making. Once home from a treatment center many individuals struggle with stress and anxiety. At Hired Power, we provide Safe Passage for clients and families during this significant transition period. Hired Power's Certified Personal Recovery Assistants are able to travel to a client's home, assist them in the necessary preparations and accompany them to the door of the treatment setting.
It is common that a client needs to return home during the course of treatment for a family situation, legal issue, or a program home visit. The Certified Personal Recovery Assistant will arrive at the treatment center and provide Safe Passage for the client during the necessary excursion from treatment. This service has helped to bring continuity to the experience and decrease the risk of a client's relapse or refusal to return to the treatment setting.
Moving from a primary treatment center to an extended care center has long proven to be a time of increased risk and acuity. Clients are faced with the known risks of carrying their own medications, passing by airport bars with long periods of travel time, stress and delays. Having a gender-specific Certified Personal Recovery Assistant during this transition can be the determining factor of getting a client to their next destination safely. This service can reduce the potential for an additional drug or alcohol intervention, detox settings and minimizes the risk for relapse in recovery.
