Our Mission

finding the path to the best you.

Our dedicated professionals are available to assist clients and families in a number of different ways; from crisis management services, to therapeutic program selection, to easing the re-entry process when a client is returning from treatment.

We are able to build comprehensive aftercare plans and create clear lines of communication between the members of the treatment team while providing strong family support.

“Change happens when one individual has had enough pain and finds the inner resolve to ask for help and make a difference.”

Case Management

Our Case Management involves strategic and individualized planning to aid in a successful therapeutic process. Case Management can range from 30 days to 1 year, and includes, but is not limited to, treatment placement, aftercare coordination and planning, daily/weekly check-ins, 12-Step meeting coordination and recommendations, therapeutic referrals to local clinical professionals, and drug testing (when necessary). We work to ensure success at every stage by actively visiting and meeting programs, individual practitioners, and aftercare solutions.

Our services are available worldwide for case management. Our team has met with treating professionals across all fifty states as well as internationally. All of our case management services are extremely personalized and completely confidential. We pride ourselves in creating accountability throughout the family system, and making sure each family member knows their role in the recovery and therapeutic process.

 

Therapeutic Intervention Services

Ferguson Therapeutic Advisors build and develop a safe environment that allows our clients to break the cycle of addiction and begin the journey of family recovery. We are dedicated in providing support, as well as the development of specific plans for family, friends, and co-workers that have a loved one suffering from addiction. We aim to move from crisis into solution. We operate from a Family Systems standpoint, which keeps family involvement high whether or not the identified patient goes to treatment. We work extensively with the family to ensure every member receives the support they need around addiction and codependency. A majority of work with families involves recommendations for ongoing family therapeutic work, either with individual therapy, group therapy, or an intensive workshop. 

When guided by a professional interventionist, almost all intervention teams that may include parents, friends, and co-workers are effective and result in the struggling individual entering a therapeutic treatment program.  A well-executed intervention process aims to move the addicted youth or adult from the cycle of crisis and provide motivation to immediately begin taking steps toward recovery, which may include entering a detox center and receiving medical care, residential treatment, therapy, and behavioral counseling. Though some of the behavior the family has been seeing is devastating, most of these behaviors and associated problems are lessened or vanish after someone has begun working in a recovery program.

Being stuck in a cycle of fear and regret is not a happy or healthy way to live. As much as a family would like or want these problems to go away on their own, they simply won’t without help and action.

And that’s why we’re here.

We are available to travel anywhere in the world to work with a family and are able to react quickly as we recognize that families are in crisis when they call us. We generally are available to work with families on the ground within 24 hours of the first call.

Therapeutic Mentoring & Coaching

Our Therapeutic Mentoring and Coaching services are built for families looking to change and modify unhealthy behaviors in the home environment, often when a young person is returning from their therapeutic program to the home environment or transitional care. Our team will work with the individual to create a therapeutic plan, provide on-the-ground support, and work with the family to ensure all therapeutic goals are being met. Most of our coaching revolves around young adults and adolescents returning from residential treatment or therapeutic wilderness programs.

The goal is motivating individuals to continue the work they’ve done in their therapeutic program to create healthy scenarios and repair relationships. We work with a variety of therapeutic workshops and resources around the country, and build strong supports for all of our families- we assess and individualize our recommendations for every family and individual as needed. Resources are available nationwide, and our direct providers are located in Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Indianapolis, Santa Barbara, and Nashville.
