Hi there. One colleague recommended The Recovery Capital Index (RCI) for me. And she said it could assess a client’s level of recovery capital. The concept is very interesting, but I am not very familiar with it. Is anyone could offer me a hand?

When they say "recovery capital", in other words, we could also say assessing a client’s personal, social, and financial strengths and deficits can affect recovery. For as long as individuals have been surviving alcohol and other drug addiction (also understood as substance use disorder) – entering and maintaining “recovery” – there has lacked a method or instrument for measuring the broad and ambiguous concept of recovery. Two of the most respected organizations in the addiction field – Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and Betty Ford Institute (now Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation) – have illustrated the lack of consensus around the notion of recovery. SAMHSA defines recovery as a “process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life, and strive to reach their full potential.” The Betty Ford Institute Consensus Panel defined recovery as “a voluntarily maintained lifestyle characterized by sobriety, personal health, and citizenship.” Therefore, recovery capital attempts to establish a more interoperable definition of this notion of recovery. And Face It TOGETHER (FIT) is a social entrepreneurial non-profit, based in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, working to solve the disease of addiction. FIT is using the above-mentioned concepts and definitions to explore recovery capital in terms of a change process. And eventually, FIT had developed The Recovery Capital Index.

Could you please give us a clue about how service users apply for the occupational therapy service of SRACP? As we want to evaluate the convenience for applicants to get access to this service.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
