    process.)

TREATMENT DETAILS AND COLLABORATION

  • Treatment Center details are completed shortly after having signed Contract to move forward with Intervention. My work begins after the 1st meeting with family to establish who are my resources based on specific details of case.

  • Help to prepare Admissions Staff if inpatient level of treatment is decided.

    or

  • Collaborate with outpatient treatment providers.


INTERVENTION DAY

  • Arrive at our designated location together. (if Johnson model, we are going to their home or wherever we decide to meet)

  • Introduce myself and move immediately into our process. (No deliberation or debate).

  • Depending upon our model of intervention and outcome, I individualize our process.


INTERVENTION DAY (CONT’D)

  • Transportation to our decided facility. again, this is all determined prior to that day. If female, I can transport. If male, I would arrange to hire a male colleague.

  • We leave immediately following our intervention. no delay.


POST-INTERVENTION

  • I continue to collaborate with treatment center to insure all details have been covered.

  • RELEASES SIGNED.

  • Debrief with family and loved one’s

  • provide continued support for family until IP completes treatment.

  • Collaborate aftercare for IP.
