In Progress:  AToN Assesses Resident’s General
Symptomology on a Weekly Basis

Residents at AToN Center Experience Decreased Urges and Decreased Symptoms

As our resident’s progress in treatment is of the upmost importance, AToN Center conducted weekly assessments with our residents.  Residents completed the Brief Symptom Inventory (BSI) and the Urge to Use scale, which assessed the following domains:

  • Somatization
  • Obsessive Compulsive Symptoms
  • Interpersonal Sensitivity
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Hostility
  • Phobic Anxiety
  • Paranoid Ideation
  • Psychoticism
  • Urges to Use

AToN residents had a consistent decrease in overall symptoms as demonstrated in the chart below: 

Resident’s Urge to Use decreased significantly between weeks 1-3 in particular.  Additionally, these decreases were considered a large effect when reviewing the partial eta-squared (.69).

Every single scale on the Brief Symptom Inventory demonstrated a significant decrease in symptoms from week one to week two.  Five scales significantly decreased between weeks one, two and three.  Finally, two scales significantly decreased every single week; and these scales were overall scales.  The largest effect sizes found in the BSI were in Global Severity Index (.78), Positive Symptom Distress Index (.73), Depression (.67) and Anxiety (.64).  See the below charts for further information:
