This report summarizes data reported by clients being treated at Healing Properties during the period between February 27, 2018 and June 15, 2018. This report was completed on June 27, 2018.
Patients were mostly white (85%), and 62% were single or never married. The median age was 31. Only 12% held any kind of college degree, though over half (53%) had taken some college without receiving a degree. Most of the patients (71%) were in a stable living environment, though 13% were moving from place to place, and 9% had been homeless before entering treatment. Appendix A contains detailed demographics of the patients submitting Intake questionnaires.
72% of the patients entering treatment during this period reported feeling bad or terrible during the 30 days before beginning treatment
The majority of patients (58%) reported that they had started treatment because they became tired of living the way they were. 38% reported being asked to go to treatment by family or friends. Few were referred to treatment by the criminal justice system.
As part of their Intake Questionnaire, the patients were asked a series of screening questions about the 30 days before they started treatment. If they answered one or more of the screening questions for a particular co-occurring disorder positively, they were then taken to a full academically-validated instrument to measure the severity of their symptoms of that disorder.
The majority of patients entering Healing Properties reported suffering moderate or severe symptoms of one or more co-occurring disorders in the 30 days prior to entering treatment:
Additionally 21% of Healing Properties' patients reported behaviors typically associated with eating disorders in the 30 days before starting treatment. The most common behavior was binge eating: either eating during the night after awakening from sleep or eating an unusually large amount of food after their evening meal and being distressed by the night eating (15%), or eating large amounts of food and losing control (6%). In addition, fasting (skipping two or more meals in a row) was reported by 11% of patients.
Over half of the Healing Properties patients reported wishing they were dead or could go to sleep and not wake up in the 30 days prior to treatment. Almost a quarter (23%) of the patients had thought about how they might kill themselves, 13% intended to carry out a suicide plan, and 11% claimed to have actually prepared, started to or attempted to commit suicide in the month before treatment.
During the time they were in treatment, the severity of the co-occurring disorder symptoms that Healing Properties patients were experiencing declined dramatically. The following graphs compare how the percentage of patients reporting moderate to severe symptoms of depression, anxiety, PTSD and mania declined between the intake and the last progress monitoring survey they submitted:
Because Healing Properties offers a continuum of care, there is no directly comparable national data. The closest comparison is to patients in long-term residential SUD treatment in the 2014 Treatment Episode Data Set – Discharges (TEDS-D). The median length of stay among the 114,257 patients in this group of 90 days is essentially identical to Healing Properties’ median length of stay of 91 days.
