At Eating Disorder Recovery Center, we base our interventions on the latest evidence-based therapeutic approaches.
To ensure the quality of care offered at EDRC, we analyze progress across various symptom domains. Our 2009 analyses indicate the following for all individuals who have successfully completed the program (see bottom of page for a summary of assessment tools and screenings used in our analyses):
Outcomes related to Eating Disorder Diagnosis
- 100% of clients who admitted with a diagnosis of Anorexia Nervosa discharged at a healthy weight range >18.0 BMI.
- Upon admission the average Eating Disorder Risk Composite (as measured by the EDI-3) was in the Elevated Clinical Range. Upon discharge the average Eating Disorder Risk Composite (as measured by the EDI-3) was in the “typical clinical range.”
- The majority of our clients discharge to a lower level of care.
Outcomes related to Depression and Anxiety
- Upon admission the average depression rating was in the “severely depressed” range (as measured by the BDI-II). Upon discharge the average depression rating was “mildly depressed” (as measured by the BDI-II), demonstrating a statistically significant improvement.
- Upon admission the average anxiety rating was in the “severely anxious” range (as measured by the BAI). Upon discharge the average anxiety rating was “mildly anxious” (as measured by the BAI), demonstrating a statistically significant improvement.
Satisfaction with EDRC's Treatment Program
- The average satisfaction ratings by clients across various aspects of our program (e.g., level of satisfaction with treatment program, treated with respect and dignity, personal goals integrated into treatment) ranges from 9.3 – 9.7 on scale of 1-10.
Assessments Used in Our Analyses
Eating Disorder Inventory (EDI-3)
The Eating Disorder Inventory (revision 3) provides an evaluation of symptomatology associated with eating disorders. The EDI-3 is a revision of one of the most widely used self-report measures of psychological traits or constructs shown to be clinically relevant in individuals with eating disorders. The screening assesses areas of psychopathology, identifying meaningful patient subgroups, and assessing treatment outcome
Beck Depression Inventory (BDI-II)
The Beck Depression Inventory (revision 2) is a 21-item screening used to assess the intensity of depression. Each item is a list of four statements arranged in increasing severity about a particular symptom of depression.
Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI)
The Beck Anxiety Inventory is a 21-item screening that measures anxiety levels with items that are descriptive of subjective, somatic, or panic-related symptoms of anxiety.
