| At Westbrook Health Services, treatment is a family matter. Having adequate support and guidance is especially important for young people making the journey to recovery and wellness.
For those situations where parent and child contact must be overseen by a neutral, professional observer, Westbrook is pleased to provide a supervised visitation. Supervised visitation permits children to have contact with their non-custodial parents in a monitored and comfortable setting, while ensuring that the child has a safe and enjoyable visit.
Supervised Visitation referrals are routinely made by the Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR), but the recommendations of attorneys, clergy, physicians and other helping professionals are welcome as well.
Supervised Visitation Services Include:
- Supervised Visitation I(SVI) - A visitation monitor is present during the visit to observe the family contact, assure safety ad document the visit activities for use in required reports.
- Supervised Visitation II(SVII) - A Bachelor's level case manager participates in the visit, assessing parental strengths and offering supportive advice to improve the interaction. The case manager completes required reports detailing the visit progress made by the family.
- Therapeutic Supervised Visitation(TSV) - A Master's level therapist participates in the visit, asseses the need for further intensive therapy, and aids the family in both coping with the visit situation and in improving their interaction patterns.
