All Kinds of News for June 10, 2020
All Kinds of Therapy sent out its first anonymous survey to the Family Choice Behavioral Healthcare industry, to gain a sense of the funnel during the COVID-19 pandemic. There were 11 questions inquired about enrollment for March-May 2019 vs. 2020. One-third of the recipients of the survey responded. Response breakdown was 10 wilderness therapy programs, 21 residential treatment programs (of all levels of care) who serve under 18 clients, 17 residential treatment programs (of all levels of care) who serve clients over 18 and 14 referrals to the industry that include either therapeutic consultants or interventionists. There was one respondent who chose not to disclose.
The month with the greatest decrease was May 2020 vs. May 2019 with an overall decrease of 8% in enrollment and a 23% decrease in inquiries.

- Inquiry = 15% decrease
