Adolescent Intervention

Professional Intervention
What to look for in an adolescent intervention agency:

  RESEARCH, RESEARCH, RESEARCH

  1. Locate professional intervention companies that have a solid reputation and longevity in the industry.

You can  achieve this by checking personal and professional references. Search out information  based resources such as:
 
The Woodbury Reports / strugglingteens.com.

Do not be afraid to ask questions. Remember you are interviewing  prospective agencies to safely provide professional intervention for your child.


  2. Many companies operating in youth services will advertise their “combined” years of experience.

  Although “combined” years of experience is helpful when setting up a transport it has little to do with field work. Ask, specifically, regarding the experience of the field agents’ who will be assigned to your case.

Ask for specifics regarding an agent's experience in crisis prevention and crisis intervention(education, classroom & on the job training). 

  3. Find out what the success rate is of the prospective intervention agency. Also, what, if any, guarantees they may offer.

Guardian Angel has a 100% success rate in secured transporting and runaway recovery.

We Guarantee your child will be, safely and securely, transported
 to their destination… or we will refund your money.
  • Please see contract for more information.

      4. Does the agency use restraints? If so, what type and at what point?

     Are the "professional intervention" agents qualified to use physical restraint techniques or mechanical restraint devices?

5. Is the agency licensed and insured?

 If so, licensed and insured exactly for what (secured transporting, secured holding, private investigating, executive protection…)?

6. Ask the agency about their specific experience in commercial air travel, private air charter, vehicle transporting, and/or international adolescent intervention? 

 Expertise in methods of transportation is critical. For example; Agencies may offer you significantly discounted airfare (usually internet specials) but fail to inform you that many of those inexpensive tickets are nonchangeable and nonrefundable . You may be financially responsible for severe penalties or the purchase of new (full-fare) tickets if flights need to be changed.

7. What is the cost? Pay close attention to what an agency’s fees cover. Be careful not to choose a youth services company based solely on it being the least expensive. Cost is a very important factor, however, it should not be the key factor in contracting an adolescent intervention service.

Remember, you are dealing with your child’s welfare. You are not purchasing a product, you are retaining professional intervention.

  8. Trust your instincts. You know your child better than anyone and have the ability to match your family’s needs with a competent youth services agency.
 
An agency should never pressure you into using their service.
 
  Do not feel uneasy about asking specific and/or many questions. Is the agency willing to give of their time even if they know you are not going to retain their service?

 
If an agency is reluctant to answer any of your inquiries look somewhere else.
