Clementine Program Outcomes
Many potential clients and family members may ask, “Does your program work? Do you have any statistics on the benefits of treatment at Clementine?”
At Clementine, we believe it is of utmost importance to demonstrate the effectiveness of our programs through data collection and research. Beyond asking clients to report on how helpful and satisfied they were with their treatment experience, we also believe it is important to demonstrate treatment outcomes beyond weight restoration. Effective treatments must also address the core psychological and behavioral symptoms of the eating disorder, which have an extensive impact on the lives of our patients and their loved ones.
In 2018 Monte Nido & Affiliates began a comprehensive research study, approved by an Institutional Review Board, in order to assess treatment outcomes in our programs. Specifically, our Clementine patients who consent to participate in our research study complete a series of questionnaires upon admission, transfer to a new level of care (stepping up or down), as well as upon discharge from the program. Additionally, we obtain follow-up data for patients who consent at specified time-points after their discharge. This data provides a snapshot of each adolescent’s distinctive symptom presentation on measures of eating disorder symptoms, depression, anxiety, functional impairment, and trauma reactivity, and it deepens our understanding of the clinical challenges specific to each client and serves as a roadmap for exploration of the factors that may be maintaining the eating disorder.
Eating Disorder Symptoms were measured using the Eating Disorder Examination Questionnaire. Results indicate that on average, Clementine patients experienced clinically and statistically significant reductions in eating disorder symptoms from admission to discharge. Our data analysis also revealed clinically and statistically significant symptom reduction (depression and eating disorder symptoms) and improved quality of life from admission to discharge. Upon discharge, average patient scores on the EDE-Q were significantly reduced on all scales, suggesting clinically meaningful improvements.
This research represents our commitment to guiding clinical teams in developing a shared language for each client’s experience, building engagement, and designing more effective and personalized treatment plans.
