AbstractWe performed a pilot study examining the patterns of recovery from severe mental illness in a model integrated service delivery system using measures from the Milestones of Recovery Scale MORS, a valid and reliable measure of recovery outcomes which ranges from 1 to 8 8 levels. For purposes of presentation, we constructed an aggregate MORS 6 levels where the levels are described as follows: 1 extreme risk; 2 unengaged, poorly self-coordinating; 3 engaged, poorly self-coordinating; 4 coping and rehabilitating; 5 early recovery, and 6 self reliant. We analyzed MORS data on individuals followed over time from The Village in Long Beach, California 658 observations. Using Markov Chains, we estimated origin-destination transition probabilities, simulating recovery outcomes for 100 months. Our models suggest that after 12 months only 8% of -extreme risk- clients remain such. Over 40% have moved to -engaged, poorly self-coordinating.- After 2 years, almost half of the initial -extreme Risk- clients are -coping-rehabilitating- -early recovery- or -Self reliant.- Most gains occur within 2 years.
