When you are involved with the DCF, you may be asked to submit a “Safety Plan”. The safety plan is helpful for DCF to know what your action steps are. Safety plan can be helpful in keeping you on track and focused. “Safety” Plans are only helpful if you know what you are doing when you create your safety plan.
Here at the Law Office of Kevin Patrick Seaver, we want to assist you in any way we can. This includes creating and maintaining your safety plan.
Here are the requirements for a “Safety Plan”. For your plan to be effective and sufficient and to see positive results, you must understand each item included in your safety plan.
The following is a short summary of what you should include in your safety plan. You may have some questions to address when writing your plans.
Your safety Plan Should Include:
- How would I get out of a High Risk Situation?
- How would I know that I’m in danger?
- How would someone else know that I’m in danger?
- How would I let someone know that I’m in danger of going back to addiction and a list of people that I would seek out for help?
The safety plan is important and is often the keys to success in closing DCF cases. They let DCF know that you are serious about recovery. The effort to improve your situation will be self-evident to all. Make sure when you write your plans that you include every piece of information necessary to succeed. It could be the difference between getting your children back sooner rather than later, or the closing of your case.
