Brass Tacks Recovery’s trained sober travel companions are able to safely transport an
individual from their home, jail, or institution to treatment facilities or other locations, as deemed appropriate by the treatment plan.
In addition to the travel service listed above, our sober travel companions support the family by scheduling all travel arrangements, such as booking drivers, rental cars, taxis, and/or flights.
At Brass Tacks Recovery we are able to transport a person to treatment who is under the influence of chemical substances, as long as they are not in need of immediate medical attention. If the client is severely intoxicated, it will be important that the client has been deemed safe to drive or fly by a medical doctor.
Our sober travel companions will also pack and unpack the client’s personal belongings, and assist the family with their individual needs. During this process we become an extension of the family, helping tie up loose ends and making sure unexpected details are taken care of. The companions are trained to provide an empathetic environment for the client. After the transport, observational notes will be provided for the treatment team.
