YOUTH OUTCOME QUESTIONNAIRE

So, what do these outcome graphs show?  The first graph shows how students themselves have responded to the Youth Outcome Questionnaire upon admission to Kolob Canyon RTC.  Students tend to view themselves favorably.  Their outcome questionnaires indicate that potential students don't feel that they are experiencing many behavioral, relationship or mental health issues.  The second graph shows how the parents of Kolob Canyon students have responded to the same questionnaire regarding their daughters.  The dotted line that runs through the graph is indicative of a "typical teenager" who is not receiving any type of therapeutic intervention or treatment. The first bar of the parent graph reflects that parents are scoring their daughters high at admission.  This means that parents view their daughters to be experiencing a high degree of behavioral, relationship and mental health issues.  The next bar of the graph shows how our parents score their daughters upon discharge from Kolob.  As you can see, there is significant progress made from admission to discharge, with parents scoring their daughters below that of the "typical teenager".  We expect this to happen because a girl has just completed extensive treatment in the time she is at Kolob Canyon. The third bar shows how parents view their daughters 6 months post graduation or following treatment.  We actually expect this slight increase to occur as a girl is back in her regular day-to-day life.  At a year following treatment, we see that the majority of the girls who have graduated from the Kolob program level out, scoring very similar to the "typical teenager".  Our data then shows that girls maintain this same level of behavior for the next 5 years.  We have been monitoring many of our students up to 5 years following discharge.
