Our Success Rates
You’ve come to the right place.
Only Renascent offers the Complete Care you need to change your life completely. Because one drink, hit or pill can trigger a complete relapse, abstinence is crucial. Renascent’s approach – professional treatment facilitated through the 12 steps – helps you recover for good.
Few can match the success delivered by Renascent Complete Care – a program comprised of four components: Primary Care, Continuing Care, Family Care and Alumni Care.
71.4% of clients who completed at least the primary and continuing care components of Renascent Complete Care are clean and sober 24 months post-treatment.
Complete Care not only supports a lifetime of sobriety, it shows you how to lead a better life in recovery. By involving families and workplaces where appropriate, Complete Care allows those most affected by the disease of addiction to restore order to their lives.
Program Evaluation Summaries
Since 1991, Renascent has evaluated the success of our treatment approach through independent outcome studies. Our commitment to ongoing evaluation has allowed Renascent to refine its unique treatment approach: Renascent Complete Care.
Over the last two decades, we’ve conducted four studies; the following represents the key findings:
Renascent Centres On-Going Evaluation 3, 6, 12, 18 & 24 Month Follow-up Results, by Sue Weinstein, Research & Evaluation Consultants, October 2008
- Purpose: To determine abstinence rates for clients who accessed Renascent Complete Care differently. To improve accuracy, this study utilized a third party or alternate to confirm sobriety status.
- 71.4% of clients who completed at least the primary and continuing care components of Renascent Complete Care successfully maintained abstinence 24 months post-treatment.
- By combining primary and continuing care, clients were 37% more likely to be sober 24 months post-treatment.
Renascent Centres Evaluation Project – Phase III: Alternative Model/Comparative Evaluation, by Sue Weinstein, Research & Evaluation Consultants, January 2001
- Purpose: To compare outcomes of a reconfigured 21-day program with the former 28-day program so as to determine if program changes allow the program to be as effective.
- The move from a 28-day service model to a 21-day service model has shown no negative impacts on client outcomes, as indicated by comparative analyses of abstinence rates, use of A.A. supports and quality of life factors across the two program models.
- The move from a 28-day service model to a 21-day service model is cost-effective as suggested by cost-effectiveness analyses at the 12-month post discharge point.
- The 12 and/or 24-month post discharge time periods are significant points of change in client outcomes in the 21-day program. Statistically significant decreases in abstinence rates, A.A. membership, A.A. sponsorship and A.A. attendance rates were evident. These findings, coupled with the significant relationship between abstinence rates and use of A.A. supports, suggest the need to focus on aftercare programming as part of Renascent’s post-discharge services.
The Renascent Centres Evaluation Project – Phase II: Baseline Study Final Report, by Sue Weinstein, Research & Evaluation Consultants, May 1998
- Purpose: Measure the outcome of the Renascent’s 28-day program, so Renascent would have a baseline result it could compare with the results of a reconfigured 21-day program; the Ministry’s decision in 1996 to move the sector from a 28-day to a 21-day program motivated this internal assessment.
- Client abstinence rates suggest that the 28-day program was successful. Depending on the definition of abstinence used, one half to two thirds of a sample of former clients representing three different time periods post-discharge (6 months, 12 months and 24 months) successfully maintained abstinence.
- The factors that seem to clearly relate to successful and unsuccessful client outcomes, in terms of abstinence, were highly supportive of the 12-step model. Membership/attendance at a 12-step group post-discharge and use of an Alcoholics Anonymous (A.A.) sponsor were the only two statistically significant factors associated with positive abstinence outcomes. Other client characteristics (e.g. age, partnerships, education level, etc.) did not influence outcomes.
Renascent Centres: Evaluation of Corporate Client Satisfaction, by Coopers & Lybrand, November 13, 1991
- Purpose: Measure satisfaction of corporations referring employees to Renascent.
- 60% of the employees referred to Renascent by our largest corporate clients succeeded in maintaining total abstinence on a continual basis upon completion of the program. An additional 9% eventually achieved total abstinence.
- In the six months before the program, employees averaged 3.95 incidents of absenteeism and 11.48 days absent. In the six months after completion of the program, the average absenteeism dropped to one incident and 3.62 days absent.
- Regular weekly attendance at 12-step program meetings, availability of professional counselling services, and regular contact with company EAP personnel were seen by all participants as important elements of a successful program. The level of satisfaction with Renascent’s efforts in these areas was high.
- The most common suggestions for improvement to Renascent were earlier admittance (31%) and more follow-up, aftercare and outreach (31%).
- While Renascent’s corporate clients have made extensive use of other addiction programs, the most common reason is earlier admittance (35%). Renascent is rated as the same, or better, than other programs by 94% of corporate clients.
