Angel PiperAngel PiperCEO, Pasadena Villa Psychiatric Network

“Pasadena Villa is a nationally recognized mental health treatment network with clinically excellent residential facilities located in picturesque locations in Tennessee and Florida. While 2020 tested us, and the world, in ways we could have never imagined, the need for evidence-based care and compassion was never more apparent. I’m extremely proud of how Pasadena Villa didn’t let our clients, families, and clinical partners down during such a challenging year while continuing to outperform the nation through the outcomes that help our clients progress on their road towards lasting recovery.”

About Our Assessment Approach

In our 2020 Treatment Outcomes Measurement report, our client-centered care and whole-person approach to treatment used the BASIS-24 Evaluation, a leading behavioral assessment tool, to evaluate the results our clients experience post-treatment against similar treatment facilities across the nation. This measurement tool identifies a wide range of symptoms and problems that occur across the diagnostic spectrum using a 5-point Likert scale.

The 24 questions are scored using a weighted average algorithm that gives an overall score and scores for six subscales for the following domains of psychiatric and substance abuse symptoms and functioning: depression and functioning, relationships, self-harm, emotional lability, psychosis, and substance abuse. Across 2020, we had 251 active clients complete the BASIS-24 assessment. The questionnaire was administered at admission, mid-treatment every 30 days, and again at discharge.

Client Profile

During 2020, we helped over 500 clients progress in their recovery journeys. Here is how our client population looked over the course of the year.

"Long story short, this Pasadena Villa center was the best therapeutic experience I've had in over a decade of trying to work through therapy. The therapists and staff have the utmost respect for patients, their privacy, and autonomy. They operate with a lot of flexibility in structuring its program to meet your needs. The work did not come easily and it certainly paid off. I can't imagine how else I would've spent the past few weeks of my life if not here, because it was what I needed."
