ARE YOU AFFILIATED WITH OR COMPENSATED BY ANY TREATMENT CENTERS OR PROVIDERS?
No. Primary Recovery Services is completely independent and autonomous from all treatment centers and providers. We pride ourselves on offering the best level of care based on our clients individual needs and would never want to risk compromising our judgment. Our long-term experience in the field has allowed us to develop and establish relationships with the premier treatment centers throughout the country. We also have the advantage of factoring in firsthand results our clients have experienced over a long period of time.
WHAT HAPPENS IF MY LOVED ONE SAYS “NO” AT THE INTERVENTION?
Although the vast majority of our clients do agree to go to treatment on the day of the intervention, there are occasions when they refuse. This is addressed in detail prior to the intervention and we continuously work with the family to establish boundaries as we direct their loved one into treatment. We have found that more than half of those who refuse to go to treatment at the intervention eventually do agree at a later time.
WHO SHOULD I INVITE TO BE A PART OF THE INTERVENTION TEAM?
Typically we look to include those individuals who love, have a history and are concerned with the Identified Patient (IP). They may include family members, friends, colleagues (when appropriate), people of influence from yesteryear, etc. Each case is unique and the Interventionist will play a prominent role in determining who is most suitable and appropriate.
WHY DO I NEED INTENSIVE CASE MANAGEMENT?
Inpatient treatment is often a necessary first step to stabilize, build a foundation, and offer a reprieve to your loved one’s current circumstance. A tremendous amount of clinical work, education, and tools are necessary to begin the healing process. However studies show that inpatient treatment alone without a robust aftercare program can become problematic. Statistically over 70% of people who attend inpatient treatment relapse within their first year. Intensive Case Management significantly reduces the odds of relapse by providing counseling, mentoring, accountability, family support as we guide our clients through the early stages recovery.
WHY DO I NEED SOMEONE TO ESCORT MY LOVED ONE TO TREATMENT?
Admitting one needs help is often a huge relief not only to the family members but also to the client themselves. That said, they are often left in a vulnerable position with a lot of unprocessed and potentially frightening thought. An escort not only provides a high level of support and accountability on their journey into recovery, they also offer insight, hope and emotional comfort.
WILL MY LOVED ONE NEED TO GO TO DETOX?
That is decided on a case-by-case basis but typically depends on the level of dependence and the types of substances being used. Many treatment centers have an in-house detox unit, which can help make the transition seamless.
