Frequently Asked Questions
1. What type of programs do you typically work with when placing a client?
I am well versed in a variety of programs that I review when placing every client. I work with residential treatment centers, wilderness therapy programs, therapeutic boarding schools, and private schools. I also work with local area programs that provide Intensive outpatient programs, group therapy, and individual therapy.
2. What is cost involved with placement?
Therapeutic programs are a big investment- emotionally and financially. Most programs are private pay, but I also look at programs that accept insurance. Insurance will often only cover a portion of the program. I also work with insurance specialist who can work with you and your insurance company to maximize any reimbursements. Some families are able to use college savings accounts as well. I have an all inclusive rate that covers my fees. I work with families to develop a treatment plan with consideration of their financial situation.
3. How do kids get to programs?
Transportation needs vary by family and child. Some families are able to take their child to the program. I am also available to escort your child if you and your child prefers. I also work with therapeutic transport services that I highly recommend and have worked with for years.
4. How long does it take to get my child to a program?
Placement time is all based upon your family's needs. I can move as quickly as needed. I often have a 24 hour turn around for urgent placement needs.
I welcome the opportunity to speak with you about how I can help you and your child.
