Rogers Memorial Hospital studies the effectiveness of its highly specialized treatment programs and publishes outcome studies to share the results. This research helps Rogers remain a leader in comprehensive, effective eating disorder treatment for children, teens and adults.
A 2013 outcome study of adolescents in residential treatment for eating disorders at Rogers Memorial Hospital showed that this age group made improvements while in treatment and maintained their improvements well after treatment. For teens with Anorexia Nervosa, weight gain continued to improve after discharge.
105 adolescents who were treated at Rogers Eating Disorder Center participated in the study. They were asked to complete a set of surveys and questionnaires upon admission, discharge and two years later.
Here’s what we found:
Our goal is to help people get to a point where they are able to achieve a quality of life that they would like to have, where their body weight continues to increase and depression disappears. Our patients report being the same or better 2 years later.
