Mirasol Treatment Outcomes

Latest Data Shows Dramatic Decrease in Depression

When a new client enters treatment, we do quite a lot of psychological testing. Two of the most important psychological instruments we administer are the Eating Disorder Inventory-III and the Beck Depression Inventory.

The Eating Disorder Inventory 3 (EDI-III) is the third edition of a test that reports in multiple scales. The test consists of 91 questions answered in terms of frequency of behaviors from "always" to "never". Reports consist of 21 separate scales; three are validity scales, four are eating disorder risk and composite scales, nine are psychological scales, and five are psychological composite scales. Results are presented as percentiles for all, anorexia, bulimia, and EDNOS diagnoses.

For simplicity of reporting, percentiles of two risk scales/composite scores are used, each chosen for broad-based relevancy to Mirasol's program, the Eating Disorder Risk Composite (ERDC) and the Global Psychological Maladjustment Composite (GPMC). In addition, the 9 psychological scales, including Low Self-Esteem (LSE), Personal Alienation (PA), Interpersonal Insecurity (II), Interpersonal Alienation (IA), Interoceptive Deficits (ID), Emotional Dysregulation (ED), Perfectionism (P), Ascetism (A), and Maturity Fears (MF).

The information presented in the following charts is based on residents who completed the program during the years of 2007, 2008, 2009, and through June 2010. It compares pre and post-treatment scores for anorexic, bulimic, and EDNOS (eating disorder not otherwise specified) clients. A more recent on-going Burns Depression Inventory is also included.

The differences between the pre- and post-treatment scores are dramatic.
