At-Risk Youth Transport Services: What’s The Difference?

It is no secret within the therapeutic program and treatment industry that quality, practices, and pricing among the numerous transport escort services vary. Transport company A will market itself, as an “intervention” service while company B will seek credit as a “secure transport” service. Some reference transport staff as agents yet others, interventionists. Parents receive price estimates that differ from a few hundred to more than one thousand dollars among the various companies. So what is the deal? Are not all “transport” services essentially providing the same service? Why pay more for one service when another will do the same for less? Is anyone else confused with the definition of the transport service industry? How would a referring professional or parent discern which service is most appropriate to work with?
