How Do I Do This?

Getting your child to RedCliff may seem like a huge challenge. Once parents have made the decision to send their child to RedCliff, getting them here can pose a new set of problems. Students can threaten to runaway or harm themselves if they are sent away for treatment. You may simply feel ill equipped to handle the stress of removing your child from home and boarding a cross-country flight. When these situations arise families to have somewhere to turn.

Getting to RedCliff

Transport companies operate independently from RedCliff. When it comes to transporters there are a few basics.  Generally each provider sends two people to escort a student to our program. There are some companies that employ former police officers.  Most importantly your child comes first. They specialize in working with teens in a respectful manner that de-escalates anger and encourages cooperation. Fees for transport services vary, depending on current air fares and how quickly the student needs to be picked up.

Here’s what one parent had to say about her family’s experience using a professional transport service:

“Having our son go away with strangers to a foreign place was one of the hardest things we have done. It shows we felt his poor choices were placing him in dire situations and we were desperate. He left with two people who we felt not only knew what they were doing, but also cared about our family as people. It helped greatly.  A special thank you to you and to them from our family.”  Terry T.
