Watching an addicted teen turn from the joyful child you once remember into an angry person you no longer recognize is undoubtedly one of the most difficult and painful situations a parent can face in this life.
The decision to offer the gift of help to an addicted teen is the first step onto the long, difficult and abundantly rewarding road to recovery, both for the addict and for the rest
of their family.
This period of time — the time from when you set your intention of getting your addict to a safe and secure rehabilitation facility to the time the addict physically enters a program of your choosing — can be a terrifying time for families affected by addiction. For many, it feels like yet another long road trip for which you were never given directions.
Good News: SATS Team Leaders from ENR Services, Inc. offer secure transportation
and compassionate counsel to young addicts and their families during this difficult time.
WHAT IS SATS?
Secure Adolescent Transport Service,
or SATS, is a safe, compassionate
and confidential means of helping your adolescent transition from the painful life they are leading in their addiction to the safe environment of an addiction treatment center or recovery program of your choice.
SATS Team Leaders from ENR Services, will guide you through the transport process as you prepare to offer the gift of recovery to the addict you love — and as you begin the process of healing from the effects
of addiction on your life, too.
WHAT DOES IT COST?
SATS fees vary and are determined on an individual basis, as each transport case is unique.
Costs for transport-associated expenses such as airfare, car rentals and hotel costs can be determined easily even on a short, or urgent, timeline. The time required of a Transport Specialitst will vary, however, and can be estimated only after an initial conversation with the parent or guardian who will coordinate the transport.
WHY USE SATS?
Taking the step to get your adolescent treatment for their addiction takes courage — and presents an onslaught of emotion that most families find difficult to handle.
After struggling with and finally making the decision to get their teen help, many parents of teenage addicts question whether they can or want to face leaving their child at a treatment center once they finally physically arrive at one.
Other parents are willing to offer the gift of recovery to the addict they love but are simply unwilling or unable to to deliver their child to the program of their choosing.
