As a professional in the mental health field you may find yourself in the position of having to place clients in residential treatment. Without a clear understating of the current business practices and knowledge of the sheer number of programs in your community you may find you have stepped in to the abyss. Susan Rosovsky, Clinical Interventionist & Consultant, has placed hundreds of clients in her career and brings her vast knowledge of the addiction and psychiatric industry to this presentation.

Goals/Objectives

Some topics to be covered are:

  1. The investment both emotionally and financially for family, one-size does not fit all, and many considerations to take into account (clinical and financial).
  2. Private vs. Public detox/stabilization? Always private unless imminent danger to self or others.
  3. Evidence based treatment includes integrative therapies based on research and unique needs of patient and family. Some examples: Somatic work, yoga, EMDR, equine, acupuncture, massage, art, wolves, surf. Facilities need flexibility and resources to individualize each client's care to some degree.
  4. Licensed professionals or people in recovery telling new patients how to do it their way? Addiction is the most deadly and complicated illness we deal with yet many facilities are using the least experienced, licensed, and educated staff.
  5. Shame or Respect based? Is it always "patient resistance" or should we be looking at our own control and codependency issues? Is it a disease or a moral failing? Clients can be held accountable to their behaviors while still being treated with respect. We wouldn't shame an obese person with diabetes.
  6. Adults and "Dependent Young Adults" have very different developmental needs.
