Recovery Capital Index

How We Measure Addiction Wellness

Our services focus on helping people build up their “recovery capital.” Recovery capital is defined as the breadth and depth of internal and external resources that can be drawn upon to initiate and sustain recovery from addiction.

Examples of internal recovery capital include skills, experience, willingness to ask for help, a sense of self-efficacy, a sense of hope, and personal goals. External forms of recovery capital may include family and social relationships, employment or school enrollment, stable housing, connection with the recovering community, hobbies and interests—and participation in support services or mutual aid groups.

Our Recovery Capital IndexTM, helps you measure your wellness over time and identify areas that may need extra attention. The RCI is a multi-dimensional score, from 1 to 100, representing an individual's overall addiction wellness.

The RCI measures all facets of life that impact the health and wellbeing of someone suffering from addiction or maintaining recovery and wellness.  The RCI allows individuals, recovery coaches, clinicians and others to track real-time progress as you work to manage your disease.

Looking at the population of people with RCI scores and care received over time, we can identify best practices and trends which will help more people get better.
