Teen Transport Services
U.C.I team leaders work with families to transition them through all the details of the transport. The parent has access to help 24 hours a day to assure that all their needs are met. UCI will assist the family with all aspects of the transport. Once all the transportation arrangements have been made and the pick up location identified our transport counselors will proceed to the agreed location at the appointed time. Usually, the transport counselors will be making the pick-up at the Teen’s residence. One scenario that works well is that the team arrives either late at night or early in the morning to assure that the teen is at home, usually in their bedroom.
When the transport counselors first arrive they will introduce themselves to the parents and prepare the vehicle for a safe transport by activating child safety locks. Next, the transport counselors go over the travel itinerary with you in detail and answer any questions you may have. They will then complete and collect all needed contracts and documents.
They will then gather any personal belongings, medications, or other needed items of the teens, and store them securely in the trunk of the vehicle along with the collected documents. At this point you, the Parents, will accompany your child’s guides to where the teen is, (preferably in the bedroom) and introduce the transport counselors to your son or daughter and explain to them your love for them, and what is taking place.
Parents or Guardians will explain to the teen that they will be going with the transport counselors to a school or program. We would ask that at this point the Adult remove themselves to a part of the residence where they cannot be seen by their child. The teen will then be escorted by their transports counselors to the awaiting vehicle. This is to help the transport situation to not escalate into a negative experience for the teen and the family.
This approach works quite well, and helps to eliminate any confrontations. The de-escalation training and command presence of the transport counselors assures a quick and amenable transition to the vehicle and sets the tone for the remaining portion of the trip to the school or program. Prior to the transport, the transport counselors will have made arrangements to keep the Parents apprised of the progress of the transport either by Cellular phone contacts or by the Parents utilizing our discrete GPS tracking devices.
We know that things do not always go according to the original plan, and as such our transport counselors will work with you on alternative plans if needed, and we are quite adept at improvising if we need to change the pick up location if the child is at another location other than the residence, or initial agreed location.
Unless otherwise directed by the Parents or Guardians the teen will not be allowed to make any calls nor will they be allowed to bring their own phone or pager with them. This is for the safety of the teen during their transport to their new school.
We have found that if we keep the teen moving and getting them out of their comfort zone as expediently as possible they quickly calm down and adapt to their new situation. This is especially important if flying is involved. Long waits at the airport can cause a teen to become highly anxious. Basically, it gives them too much time to think and worry. During this portion of the transport we literally keep the teen within arms and ears reach of both transport counselors to comfort and assure them and keep them calm and safe.
Because of the sensitivity at the beginning stage of the transport we give great attention to the timing of flights and work closely with Parents or Guardians to work out a schedule that will allow for an absolute minimal wait at the airport. This type of attention to detail assures the least amount of stress on the teen and the safest route to the final destination.
Typically 24hr response. Starting at $175/hr. Call 1-888-975-SAVE (7283).

Frequently Asked Questions
Most frequent questions and answers
Most professionals who have studied interventions, or implement them, tend to agree that Vernon Johnson first defined a necessity for intervention technique in the early 1960s. He thought family could unite and convince an addictive drinker to accept help for his ailment. Rev. Johnson, a pioneer in compassionate chemical dependency treatment wrote the 1973 milestone “I’ll Quit Tomorrow” as the blueprint for the various forms of interventions and their use then and today involving not only addictions to alcohol but also drugs, gambling, sex, self abusive behavior, eating disorders, violent rage, and more recently computers.
The decades since Johnson’s studies have produced many variations on his themes and professionals now meet a wide range of environments and issues. The ground zero is no longer just a personal and family dimension it extends to the workplace and involves the boardrooms of Corporate American, the military, the media, all forms of celebrity from sports to movie and television stars, even the medical profession has doctors and nurses surrounded by their addictions as a part of their daily job description. ‘Executive Interventions’ are often instigated in companywide programs designed to define and solve problems with all workers and thus increase the strengths and resources of the worker and thus the corporation.
Intervention as a common remedial action has increased simply as more and more people hear about its practical ability and its updated application to a wider range of addictive circumstances. These occasions and circumstances have created a professional interventionist service industry working everywhere from the company boardroom to the darker societies of the inner city and everywhere in between.
No, it is not true. Most victims of behavioral disorders or addictions do not think they have any kind of problem at all. If you ask them if they have a problem or address them as an addict they will deny it. You might find the occasional partial admission: – “Everyone gets angry now and again”, “Everyone has a few too many drinks once in a while”, and “Most people experiment with drugs in their lifetime,” their life habits are no different than everyone else in their mind.
Something has to happen in their lives to make them want to accept help.
Intervention is the first step in a sequence of events that can mend their soul and change and restore their lives.
