The information from the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) and Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI) was entered into SPSS, the most widely used statistical program for quantitative analysis. We compared the results of a patient’s Depression and Anxiety score at Week One of treatment and just prior to discharge. Using a sample size of 55 patients, we found a significant decrease in a patient’s symptoms of depression and anxiety throughout treatment at Casa Palmera.
The first bar graph illustrates the changes throughout the group for symptoms of depression during Week One and just prior to discharge. The second bar graph illustrates the changes throughout the group in anxiety symptoms during Week One and just prior to discharge.
We use Global Assessment of Functioning (GAF) on every admission and at the time of every discharge. GAF is a numeric scale, 0 through 100, to subjectively rate the social, occupational, and psychological functioning of adults. The information that it provides tells us how well, or adaptively, one is meeting various problems in living.
We analyze the percent of change in GAF scores in the area of diagnosis, which is all part of the important assessment and decision-making process. The percent of change in GAF scores provides us with an indication of the treatment gains and goals accomplished by our patients during their treatment.
Life Changing. After multiple treatment centers, I entered Casa and feel like a switch clicked.

Casa Palmera saved my life. They gave me a foundation that will enable me to stay sober and work my program for a new life filled with hope!
A perfect and balanced approach to healing with a staff that is more than qualified to meet your needs.
In the beginning, I felt confused and fearful. Today, I feel healed and want to continue to do so.
Casa Palmera has an amazing staff and really turned my life around.
I learned some great tools I can use when I’m feeling down and I had a great support team here.
An uplifting experience that cleansed my mind, body, and soul.
I really appreciated all of the compassion, support and understanding I received at Casa Palmera. The therapists, counselors, nursing staff, front desk, make you feel confident that you are in good hands abd that they really do care and make it easier to see through the darkness in a storm.
Absolutely life changing, amazing experience. The staff was caring, professional, and knowledgeable. The facility is gorgeous. I came in hopeless and left hopeful, with a treasure chest full of “good” coping tools. Thank you Casa.
As a comprehensive behavioral health facility, Casa Palmera understands that eating disorders, drug and alcohol addiction, and trauma are not only physically exhausting, but also cause a breakdown in mental and spiritual sense. What makes Casa Palmera distinct from other treatment facilities is our desire to not only heal the body, but also aiming to heal the mind and spirit. Casa Palmera is a consistently successful program because with our holistic perspective, we analyze the physical, nutritional, environmental, emotional, social, spiritual and lifestyle values and challenges of each individual in recovery.
