The REC-CAP is an innovative system for mapping the growth of recovery resources and for recovery care planning that has been developed at Sheffield Hallam University in the UK. It is a way of mapping in a systematic and scientific way all of the things that both research and lived experience tell us are critical to making the journey to stable recovery. 

The Process

The process begins with the client’s completion of the REC-CAP Assessment. A baseline assessment is administered when the client first arrives at the program. The client is then re-assessed on a monthly or quarterly basis, depending on the intensity of the program’s platform, with the intent of identifying recovery capital gains and to identify any persistent barriers or unmet service needs.

Recovery is a process. The Recovery Outcomes Institute (ROI) is committed to funding research, building infrastructure, training providers, and collecting data that improves this process for the client, their families and the community. The REC-CAP Assessment & Recovery Planning Tool is an evidence-based platform developed by David Best Ph.D., University of Derby, that provides a finite, measurable recovery plan coupled with accurate and predictive assessment. It is recovery path neutral and appropriate for delivery in clinical and non-clinical environments by both certified peers and medical professionals. We have partnered with thought leaders around the world to create training materials for the staff members of recovery organizations seeking to deliver measurably improved outcomes through the use of cutting-edge technology and research. Those who complete the training become certified Recovery Navigators and are ready to guide their clients through a process of REC-CAP assessment and goal setting that may stretch far beyond the traditional confines of the continuum of care.
