2020 Clinical Outcomes and Key Findings

About Magnolia Creek

Magnolia Creek offers evidence-based, quality care to adolescent and adult women, ages 12 and older, with an eating disorder and secondary co-occurring mental health or substance use disorder. Our goal is to provide comprehensive treatment to meet the psychological, medical, nutritional, spiritual, and relational needs of our clients.

About Our Assessment Approach

In our 2020 Clinical Outcomes Report our client-centered care and whole-person approach to treatment used the BASIS-24 evaluation, a leading behavioral assessment tool, to evaluate the results our clients experience post-treatment against similar treatment facilities across the nation. This measurement tool identifies a wide range of symptoms and problems that occur across the diagnostic spectrum using a five-point Likert scale.
The 24 questions are scored using a weighted average algorithm that gives an overall score and scores for six subscales for the following domains of psychiatric and substance abuse symptoms and functioning: depression and functioning, relationships, self-harm, emotional lability, psychosis, and substance abuse. Across 2020, we had 108 active clients participate in programming at Magnolia Creek with 19 completing the BASIS-24 assessment. The questionnaire was administered at admission, mid-treatment or every 30 days, and again at discharge.
“Magnolia Creek has a long history of success of providing clinically excellent care to women in a retreat- and home-like setting that enhances the treatment experience. In ways we could have never imagined, 2020 was a test of what was possible for Magnolia Creek and the world. Additionally, it reinforced the growing need for evidence-based eating disorder treatment for both adolescents and adults across the country.
Magnolia Creek didn’t let our clients or their families down during this challenging year but dug in to provide high-quality care no matter the odds. That drive is reinforced by their clinical outcomes outperforming the industry in every measure which has, most importantly, helped our clients to progress on their roads towards lasting recovery.”
