About Selah House

At Selah House, our success is built on a foundation of evidence-based treatment that prepares adolescent and adult women ages 12 and older for their journey towards lifelong freedom from eating disorders. We offer a unique Christ-centered environment that meets each person where they are in an atmosphere of openness and acceptance without judgement, regardless of personal beliefs.

Our multidisciplinary treatment team utilizes a comprehensive, evidence-based approach that contributes to each client’s healing and transformation process. Specialized therapeutic modalities incorporating individual, family, and group therapies are conducted in a healing and loving environment designed to meet the medical, nutritional, psychological, spiritual, social, and emotional needs of each client. Individualized treatment plans, developed in collaboration with our clients and their families, empower sustainable progress on each client’s road to recovery.

About Our Assessment Approach

At Selah House we use BASIS-24, a leading behavioral assessment tool, to evaluate the results our clients experience post-treatment against similar treatment facilities across the nation. This measurement tool identifies a wide range of symptoms and problems that occur across the diagnostic spectrum using a 5-point Likert scale. The 24 questions are scored using a weighted average algorithm that gives an overall score and scores for six subscales for the following domains: depression and functioning, relationships, self-harm, emotional lability, psychosis, and substance abuse.

Throughout 2020, 80 clients participated in programming with 63 clients completing the BASIS-24 assessment. The questionnaire was administered at admission, mid-treatment or every 30 days, and again at discharge.

Chief Executive Officer Amos Taylor

“Selah House has an extensive history of providing clinically excellent care for women in a picturesque setting that is naturally conducive for care. 2020 was a test of what was possible for Selah House, and the world, in ways we could have never imagined, but the need for clinically excellent, evidence-based care was never more apparent.

Selah House didn’t let our clients or their families down during such a challenging year and I’m extremely proud of how they continued to outperform the nation with outcomes that enabled our clients to progress on their road towards lasting recovery.”
