The Recovery Capital Index

Measure meaningful outcomes in addiction care.

License the RCI

A proven instrument designed to measure true recovery progress

The Recovery Capital Index (RCI) survey reliably measures addiction wellness, regardless of treatment modality, recovery pathway or substance. 

Addiction is a highly complex chronic disease. However, today’s standard indicator of addiction recovery – sobriety – is an inadequate metric for evaluating recovery progress.

The RCI is a person-centered, scientifically validated assessment that provides a meaningful picture of addiction health, measuring change in 22 areas covering emotional, mental and physical wellness.

The RCI provides a comprehensive baseline and tracks intervention effectiveness, allowing clinicians, coaches and other care team members to follow client progress and tailor their treatment and support.

Backed by science

Recovery capital is the depth and breadth of internal and external assets that can be drawn upon to begin and sustain wellness from addiction. The RCI assessment is:

  • Based on the recovery capital foundational work of William White, PhD, and others.
  • Validated as a reliable measure of addiction recovery, regardless of treatment modality, recovery pathway or substance.
  • Structured across 3 domains and 22 components with 68 questions.
  • Captured in a multi-dimensional score from 1-100.
