We provide measurement-based care so we know what we're doing works. Please feel free to reach out with questions about how we can help you.
Evidence-based practices (EBPs) are interventions supported by scientific evidence, consistently showing that they improve client outcomes. These treatments are tailored by an experienced therapist to meet the individual needs of each client. EBPs are commonly likened to a three-legged stool, with the first leg of the stool representing the best available clinical scientific evidence.
The second leg consists of your values and preferences as a client. The third leg consists of your therapist’s clinical experience. The rationale behind EBPs is that your care outcomes will be optimized if all three legs of the stool are considered in making decisions about your care. For more information on EBPs administered at Recovatry, please see the various counseling pages (i.e., PTSD, substance use, depression, anxiety, couples, and teens).
Measurement-based care (MBC) is the practice of basing clinical care on client data collected throughout treatment. MBC is considered a core component of numerous evidence-based practices (EBPs), including cognitive behavioral therapy and interpersonal therapy. During the course of therapy, MBC provides insight into treatment progress and highlights ongoing treatment targets.
Research has shown that adding MBC to usual care can result in significant improvement in client outcomes, too. MBC also appears to encourage the active involvement of clients in the treatment process. Moreover, MBC has been a valuable tool for facilitating collaborative care when scores are communicated to both the primary care physician and nurses involved in the client’s care.
Providing measurement-based care (MBC) entails data collection processes for clients at intake, throughout the duration of care, and at discharge. The management of a central databank allows Recovatry to perform statistical analysis on outcome measures used. We’ve named mental health symptom reduction and growth in positive psychology measures—a mental health boost.
By providing evidence-based practices (EBPs) we know there’s a good chance our clients will see symptom reduction and enhanced well-being (see our success rate). This improvement in mental health scores over the course of therapy is known as a mental health boost.
