Provo Canyon School Research Results
March 26, 1992

Provo Canyon School, a residential treatment program for adolescents, has completed the first of a series of clinical outcome studies in conjunction with Strategic Advantage, Inc., a Minneapolis-based research firm. The first study is a retrospective sample of ninety-six families whose adolescents were discharged from the Provo, Utah program in 1987 and 1988. The study addresses both the improvement made during treatment and how well patients are doing today, four years after discharge.

Highlights include: 57% of parents reported that depression was a significant problem before PCS; 15% reported it as a problem four years after discharge. 55% of parents reported that involvement with drugs was a significant problem before PCS; 11.5% reported it as a problem four years after discharge. 76% of parents reported that impulsiveness was a significant problem before PCS; 27.1% reported it as a problem four years after discharge. 92% of parents reported that overall judgement was a significant problem before PCS; 20.8% reported it as a problem four years after discharge. 92% responded that treatment at PCS was helpful, and 85% indicated that they would recommend PCS to another parent whose child had similar problems. The results of a more comprehensive retrospective study will be published later this year. For more information, contact: Gina Van Valkenburg, Director of Marketing, 801-227-2000.
