Shopping for your favorite brand of coffee is relatively easy. You go to the coffee section at your local supermarket and make your selection.

If your favorite coffee is out-of-stock, you can see what other brands are available. Then you can select the brand closest to your favorite. All the different coffees are right in front of you. You step back and survey those choices. It’s pretty effortless and not too time-consuming. You’re in and out of the market in no time. If only selecting a treatment program and facility could be that easy.

Now that you have a diagnosis along with a tentative treatment plan for your client, where do you go to select the best treatment facility? Do you look for what each facility offers by going to their website? Do you call each facility to check on the availability of beds? Do you know if the facility is close enough to your client’s residence? GET HELP puts local options at your fingertips with the push of a button.

Finding the Best Option for Your Client

Perhaps you are looking for a treatment center with an acute detox unit for a client who is on methadone and needs to be closely monitored during withdrawal. This same client also has a co-occurring disorder and suffers from clinical depression. He is having trouble with basic activities of daily living and struggles to communicate. He tells you he is tired of living this way and is ready to change. Now what? Where do you send him so that all of his needs are met? Your contact list is filled with names and numbers of treatment facilities compatible with the care he requires, but you are not sure which one has available beds. He’s been living in shelters for the last six months and doesn’t have insurance. How do you match his situation with a treatment center where he will have the best chance of finding recovery?

A young woman with borderline personality disorder uses opiates to self-medicate. She has three children and lives with her abusive alcoholic husband. Her family has taken her and her children into their home, but her combative behavior is causing problems for everyone. At her last visit with you, she expressed a desire to get help. She is afraid she will lose her children if she doesn’t change. It’s a positive and hopeful moment, and you don’t want to lose the momentum. How do you match her situation with an appropriate treatment center in a timely manner?

This is what GET HELP does best—we can help you help your clients. No matter what mental health crisis each client may be in at any given moment, you can find the help he or she needs. GET HELP was founded by a licensed clinical psychologist with over twenty years-experience working in the addiction and mental health fields, and who understands the challenges you face every day. GET HELP is a solution for the humans navigating the systems, whether they are addiction professionals, caseworkers, service-providers, or individuals experiencing homelessness. We address your needs and then build solutions that “help the helpers” do their jobs more effectively and efficiently.
