Recovery Outcomes at Avery Lane
Success looks different for everyone. However, Avery Lane strives to provide clients with the resources, skill development, and care they need to achieve long-term sobriety. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), “Because of the frequent co-occurrence of SUD, mood disorders, and history of trauma, women in SUD treatment are more likely to benefit from a treatment environment that is supportive, safe, and nurturing.” Avery Lane provides a welcoming community where women empower one another to overcome challenges in recovery.
Treatment and Success Rate
According to the Avery Lane Treatment Effectiveness Report by Vista Research Group, Inc., “Among 142 patients who discharged from Avery Lane between May 1, 2021 and December 31, 2022, 73% completed all recommended treatment.” The average completion rate for similar programs surveyed by Vista Research Group, Inc. is 63%. In addition, “Most (80%) Avery Lane patients submitting progress monitoring surveys reported being ‘very satisfied’ with the treatment they were receiving, higher than the Vista norm (70%).”
Outcomes for Post-Treatment Abstinence
Preparing clients for post-treatment abstinence and improving quality of life are the primary goals of recovery programs. Some important factors affecting client abstinence post-treatment include:
- Successful completion of treatment
- Length of treatment
- Drug of choice
- Aftercare choices
Women in recovery benefit from participating in treatment with other women. The skills learned and routines established help women maintain long-term abstinence. Some clients may experience an emotional or physical relapse during early recovery. However, clients who complete programs at Avery Lane have excellent track records for successful abstinence.
According to the Avery Lane Outcomes Report by Vista Research Group, Inc., alumni reported the following:
- A month post-treatment: “Among 193 patients discharged prior to February 28, 2023, 53% were reachable at one month post-treatment and said they were able to abstain from alcohol and all non-prescribed drugs since leaving treatment.”
- Six months post-treatment: “Among 156 patients discharged prior to September 30, 2022, 43% were reachable at six months post-treatment and said they had abstained from alcohol and all non-prescribed drugs for at least the previous 30 days.”
- A year post-treatment: “Among 103 patients discharged prior to March 31, 2022, 50% were reachable at twelve months post-treatment and said they had abstained from all drugs or alcohol for at least the past 30 days.”
Impact of Treatment on Outcomes
The clinical team at Avery Lane tracks treatment outcomes to ensure they continue to provide high-quality and appropriate services to women in recovery. Vista Research Group, Inc. tracked the following factors to determine the impact of treatment outcomes:
- Symptom severity in individuals with co-occurring disorders
- Quality of life
- Client satisfaction with treatment
Below are some of the statistics gathered from alumni post-treatment.
Reduction in Severity of Co-Occurring Disorders
Many women with SUD have co-occurring mental health disorders and underlying issues, including trauma. According to Brain Sciences, dual diagnosis in women “increases the probability of suffering physical or sexual abuse, violent victimization, gender-based violence, unemployment, social exclusion, social-role problems such as fulfilling family and work obligations, and physical and psychiatric comorbidities.” The personalized treatment programs at Avery Lane address co-occurring disorders using evidence-based and alternative holistic therapies to help women avoid potential adverse side effects of dual diagnosis.
According to the Avery Lane Outcomes Report by Vista Research Group, Inc., “With the exception of mania, the percentages of patients reporting symptoms of co-occurring disorders decreased dramatically during the course of treatment and remained low throughout the post-treatment year.” However, “Although they remained low, rates of reported depression, anxiety, and PTSD symptoms did increase during the post-treatment year” by the following percentages:
- 31% reported moderate depressive symptoms after 12 months
- 41% reported probably PTSD after 12 months
- 31% reported moderate anxiety symptoms after 12 months
- 11% reported severe or probably mania after 12 months
Quality of Life
According to the Avery Lane Outcomes Report by Vista Research Group, Inc., “Sixty-one percent (61%) of the 59 patients submitting a twelve month post-treatment survey reported feeling excellent or good during the last 30 days. By comparison, only 8% had reported feeling excellent or good in the 30 days prior to entering treatment.” After a year, 90% of program participants reported living in stable housing. Twelve months post-treatment, 73% reported good or excellent relationships with family members.
Other factors affecting quality of life include employment, working from home, and attending school. The Avery Lane Outcomes Report stated, “The percentage of patients who were working, going to school or working in the home increased from 60% to 67% between intake and one-year post-treatment among patients submitting the twelve month survey.”

- 73% satisfaction after one-month post-treatment
