Before & After
Logan River Academy’s effect on students can be felt beyond their stay at the campus, as shown in the parental feedback we have collected. Our students’ families are the ones who notice the changes exhibited by their children once they return home, move to a less restrictive school, or become independent.
The success of any treatment program depends on the improvement of the lives of their students in the long run. Changes manifested when the student returns home and begins interacting with their loved ones, especially their parents is a critical indicator of success.
Through Logan River Academy’s residential, clinical, and academic programs, your children are given the tools they need to cope with the pressures in their lives. By applying the lessons they have learned, they have the chance to become well-adjusted and to get their lives back on track.
Before & After
Since the beginning, Logan River Academy has been dedicated to being a premier residential treatment facility. A major factor in evaluating our quality of care is measured by the satisfaction of the families we work with. The following results were conducted by Logan River Academy using responses from parents of discharged students to evaluate the level of success their child has reached and maintained. A Likert scale was used in the questionnaire ranging from 1 to 5; 1 being the progress of the student greatly deteriorated and 5 being the student greatly improved. Parental input is essential in evaluating the success of youth treatment centers. We extend our gratitude to all parents that took part in the survey.
