The AIS Difference
When AIS started sixteen years ago the we talked about wanting to do something different in the industry that would set us apart from the rest of the transport companies. What we have been able to do is establish a climate of trust with our clients based upon our ability to assess the adolescent from a clinical perspective. We are the only company that spends on average approximately one to two hours talking to the parents, identifying not only their child’s problem, but also understanding the child from a clinical perspective. AIS has developed and trained the staff in AAU (Adolescent Awareness and Understanding). This training offers our staff an understanding of the clinical issues that many of our adolescents and families are dealing with and need to be aware of during the process of the transportation from initial interaction to final destination. This includes a knowledge of the clinical diagnosis as well as the medication that the adolescent is prescribed to help manage the mental health issues. Adolescent Intervention Solutions is one of only two companies owned and operated by a Licensed Clinician who has actively engaged clinically with adolescence with mental health and other co-occurring issues.
Adolescent Intervention is proud to announce its expansion. Over the past sixteen years AIS has dedicated itself to providing outstanding transport services to over 1000’s of families and their children. The AIS staff understand the special needs of each family as they struggle trying to figure out whether sending their child to treatment is a good idea. A lot of families have the benefit of hiring an educational consultant to guide their way from initial treatment all the way home. However, what we have noticed is what happens when the child returns home. Many times the system has not changed, though the child has undergone dramatic clinical, emotional, educational and social growth. However, the home environment; the system from where the child, adolescent, or young adult may be returning continues to struggle as the intensity of the families work often does not parallel that which their child or family member has had to endure. The resulting situation is that the family may return to the crisis mode or may not know how to handle situations that in the past may have sent the family spiraling into the abyss of complete family dysfunction.
