Treatment Outcomes

Muir Wood Adolescent and Family Services strives for the best treatment outcomes for each client and family it serves. Because every adolescent and teen we treat has different needs, Muir Wood psychiatrists, nurses, clinicians, care coordinators, teachers, and other staff work toward positive individual outcomes by delivering excellent treatment that yields the best results in the time we have with our clients. 

Muir Wood uses outcome measurement tools that meet or exceed Joint Commission standards to ensure that our treatment produces positive health outcomes for clients and achieves a high level of parent and guardian satisfaction with the Muir Wood treatment experience. 

These outcome measures use 2019 – 2021 Muir Wood client data collected and analyzed by Trac9 Informatics, a behavioral healthcare outcome measurement company whose mission “is to provide gold-standard assessments and custom predictive analytics to improve the efficacy of treatment.” Trac 9 assists with Joint Commission accreditation requirements under standard CTS.03.01.09 and CARF accreditation requirements under the 2018 Behavioral Health Standards – Section M.2, M.4-5. In addition, family satisfaction information uses data supplied by Muir Wood client parent and guardian post-treatment surveys.
