YOUTH OUTCOME QUESTIONNAIRE

 

So, what do these outcome graphs show?  Parents and students are asked to fill out the Youth Outcome Questionaire upon admission, discharge, 180 days after treatment and again 365 days after treatment.  The dotted line that runs through the graph is indicative of a typical teen who is not receiving therapeutic intervention.  The first bar of the graph indicates the degree of clinical significance at student has upon admission to Kolob.  Most students admitting to Kolob are having clinically significant issues.  The second bar of the graph demonstrates how parents and students are rating the student upon discharge.  The third bar of the graph shows how students are doing 180 days after treatment.  The fourth bar shows how a student is doing at 365 days from treatment. 

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.  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.
