I know, I know – very few people get excited about numbers, statistics and percentages the way I do. However, how do we know how we are doing as an organization? That is where I come in. If you haven’t already reviewed our “research” tab – please do so. For now, here are some interesting 2017 numbers from AToN Center:
- 77% of our residents completed our program. That breaks down to an AMA rate of 17%, an Administrative Discharge Rate of 4% and a Higher Level of Care Transfer rate of 2%.
- Upon discharge, 50% of our residents preferred 12 Step community support groups to all other types of support! 35% of our residents opted to utilize a combination of 12 Step and Non-12 Step support, and 15% of our residents preferred Non 12 Step Support only.
- The majority of AToN Center residents are offered some form of anti-craving medication; based on substances of choice and types of cravings. In 2017, 53% of our residents discharged our program with some form of medication to assist with cravings. This would be Antabuse, Campral, Naltrexone or Vivitrol.
- 87% of our residents had a Partial Hospitalization Program or Intensive Outpatient Program scheduled within 7 days of discharge. Our staff did not make these appointments for them, our residents took the initiative and scheduled these appointments themselves!
AToN Center will continue to be transparent in reporting our evaluation of our program, as we are consistently striving to improve what we offer to our residents. If you are looking for assistance for yourself or a loved one, please do not hesitate to contact AToN Center. If we are not the best fit for you, we can assist you in finding a program to fit your needs!
