Society treats many patients diagnosed with mental health disorders as diagnoses rather than individuals. Those patients often ask, “Will my mental health get better?”. Too often, our society assumes the answer is NO. That message- that there is something inherently wrong with who we are at the core- causes pain, shame, and more harm. At the Kiloby Center, we recognize that. So we go directly toward addressing and healing that pain.
‘Deficiency stories’ occur frequently in our society.
These stories may tell us that we are ‘not good enough’, ‘not safe’, or ‘not loveable’. They may tell us that we are ‘disconnected’ or ‘all alone’. These beliefs get reinforced over and over again from the time we are small children. These deficiency stories further compound underlying depression, anxiety, and other disorders.
When society and institutions condition people to believe that they are their diagnoses, it makes treatment and recovery even more difficult. This, combined with situations that are often dehumanizing for patients, makes the chance of recovery even lower.
At the Kiloby Center, we do things differently.
Our New Model of Recovery uses a mindfulness-based modality called the Kiloby Inquiries. Using this approach, we empower clients to dismantle and release these deeply ingrained deficiency stories. This opens the door to address the underlying anxiety, depression, and other disorders.
Our results speak for themselves.
In one measure, 70% of patients at Kiloby Center reported symptoms of moderate to severe anxiety when starting treatment. By the time they left, only 3% reported those symptoms.
76% percent of patients showed symptoms consistent with PTSD at the beginning of treatment at the Kiloby Center. This dropped to only 12% of patients post-treatment. As one client explained,
“I feel that my facilitators are adept in locating hidden pockets of trauma that I have repressed and helping me use modalities that bring it up and out.”
This trauma-informed focus on healing forms the foundation of the unique Kiloby treatment approach.
Dual-diagnosis patients also experienced some astonishing results. 73% of patients reported suffering from symptoms of both addiction and depression when entering treatment. This percentage dropped to just 9%, and that 9% reported only moderate symptoms following treatment. Considering that individuals suffering from both depression and addiction face a life-time suicide risk of 1 in 4, these results are particularly promising.
As our independent research shows, along with the work of a growing number of mental health researchers and leaders, traditional cognitive-based programs are losing ground to new scientific findings and new ways of healing.
