Sanare Today is pleased to share a summary of our goals and our progress towards these goals. We have been providing care to individuals, both adolescent and adult across Delaware, Chester, Bucks and Montgomery Counties for almost 2 years now.
Our Mission: The mission of Sanare Today is to provide a pathway to hope, peace and happiness for individuals who want the most out of life and who may be struggling with mental health and substance use issues. A primary goal is to help individuals become stabilized emotionally and be able to succeed at school/work, maintain healthy interpersonal relationships, and learn effective coping strategies to dealing with life’s challenges.
Of all the clients who completed effectiveness measurement assessments at intake and again at discharge, 100% reported at least a 40% reduction in their symptoms. Results from the Sanare Symptom Checklist Assessment showed the following percentage of symptom improvement: anxiety 52%, depression 60%, mania 53%, insomnia 50%, appetite 40%, no substance use 50% from admission to discharge. The Adult PHQ-9 Assessment showed a 60% improvement and the Adolescent PHQ-9 assessment showed at 50% improvement from intake to discharge.
Average group size of 5 or more was maintained 24% of time. This means that many groups were smaller than 5 clients per group. While we strive to limit group size from being too large there is also a minimum number of clients we would like to achieve in each group so that group dynamics can be maintained. Our revised goal for 2018 is to maintain a minimum of 4 clients in group 50% of the time which will allow for adequate group dynamics and peer support.
Sanare Today has scheduled evaluations for clients within 48 business hours of their availability, 97% of the time. Our target was: 90% of the time.
Of Clients who participated in the 30-60 day post discharge maintenance of mental health survey, 80% continued their coordinated aftercare, 80% stated that they felt better than when they discharged from our program due to using the strategies and ideas discussed in the program, 20% stated that they felt the same as when they were discharged—one client did not continue with the intended aftercare plan, and only one client returned to a higher level of care (PHP).
As you can see from our outcome monitors the care we provide at Sanare Today has a positive, longstanding impact on those who complete our program. We are here to show you that living a satisfying, happy and rewarding life IS possible. At Sanare we believe you shouldn’t just ‘maintain’ but actually THRIVE.
