Outcomes Data

Mountain Valley uses established assessment tools to measure the symptoms of each resident upon his or her admission and again at the completion of treatment. Of the 17 residents ages 13 to 20 who successfully completed treatment from April 2016 to September 2016 our results show clinically significant reductions in symptom severity during an average stay of 90 days.

  • The Major Depression Inventory (MDI) is a self-report mood questionnaire developed by the World Health Organization.
  • The Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI), created by Dr. Aaron T. Beck and other colleagues, is a 21-question multiple-choice self-report inventory that is used for measuring the severity of an individual’s anxiety.
  • The Penn State Worry Questionnaire is a 16-item inventory assess worry and anxiety.
  • Liebowitz Social Anxiety Scale (LSAS-SR). This measure assesses the way that social phobia plays a role in your life across a variety of situations.

Parents Satisfaction Survey

In January of each year, parents of children who have attended Mountain Valley are asked to complete a brief satisfaction survey so that we might learn more about their Mountain Valley experience. This survey allows us to gain a sense of where MVTC alums are today and how they are doing, as well as to assess MVTC’s strengths and any potential areas of improvement. In addition to helping us with program development and outcome data, we feel it’s important to share this data with prospective parents and referral sources.
