Adolescent Transports & Crisis Prevention
Parents dealing with a teenager in crisis are faced with many difficult decisions. Deciding on the appropriate treatment program and how to get your teenager to this program is the beginning of these difficult decisions.
Transport agencies typically referred to as Escorts, play integral role in the process. TRVST Executive Protection staff are empathetic to the feelings of the parents and the teen’s themselves offering support and guidance throughout this difficult time. While recognizing the child’s sense of individuality and dignity we introduce firm boundaries and our expectations of your child during this journey. It is our goal during each intervention to avoid physical encounters by utilizing various management of aggressive behavior skills and de-escalating the situation verbally.
Once you have chosen the school or program for your child, trvst will make all the necessary travel arrangements to get your child to their destination quickly and safely. Based on the needs of the child and the family, special arrangements may be needed to make this transition.
Our escorts are also parents....some of us have been through the same trying times, and can certainly understand and respect the difficult decisions you have had to make. It is for this reason that during this difficult transition, escorts regularly contact the parents.
We do not have any affiliation to adolescent programs and do not take or give kickbacks or referral fees for any adolescent intervention transport. Nor are we under any contractual agreement with any organization or program. Although we have a close working relationship with many of the adolescent programs
Our Obligation is to you and your family.
Rarely will an adolescent respond favorably to being placed in a treatment program. Positive and safe transportation assistance becomes necessary when overt resistance (i.e. violent behavior, flight, etc.) to a placement is anticipated. trvst is very sensitive to the needs of the adolescent and the family.
How We Operate
Once the decision has been made to transport your child to a school or program we will require you to fill out the transport information form for your child. This is located on this website and will only take a few minutes. This will provide us with pertinent information on who best to send to escort your child to their new school. Once this is done please call the phone number above and an Agent will answer any questions, go over the procedures for transport and get to know more about your child. The itinerary for the transport will be gone over and finalization of any plans made. It is very important that your child is not made aware of your plans as the chance for them to run greatly increases.
When We Arrive at Your Home:
We are able to obtain children at any time and location. However, the procedure that works best and is our standard operating procedure is to arrive at the child's residence early in the morning or very late at night to insure that the youth is at home, preferably in bed. The parents should meet the Agents at the front door with the clothes for the child to wear during the transport, any luggage, our paperwork, fee and contracts for the school, if applicable. These items will be placed in the car. You will then take the Agents back to the child's room, wake the child up and introduce the Agents and tell them that you love them and that the Agents are there to take them to school. The parents should then go to a part of the house as not to be seen by the child. This allows full attention of the child to the Agents. We have no problem with the parents listening in just so long as they are out of the presence of the child.
The Agents will get the child dressed and take them directly out to the car. They will be placed in the back seat with the child locks on and one Agent will sit beside them. At this time we will proceed to the school. It is our policy to expedite the transportation, reaching the final destination as quickly as possible. We will call the parents as soon as we have delivered the child to the program and give a full report to the parents on the behavior and demeanor of your child during the transport. It is our policy that the child have no outside contact until they arrive at the program, so please no cell phones or pagers. It is very important for us to remove the child from the surroundings that they are comfortable in as quickly as possible, this makes them more dependant on the Agents and less likely of an attempt to run. All airline reservations and transport time lines are made with this in mind.
The Agents will also coach your child on the proper attitude and outlook they should have for the program they are going to attend.
