The Recovery Institute, Inc. (TRI) is a for-profit company founded by Dr. Alex G. Marsal, in 1998. This company was developed in response to the challenges that behavioral health providers tend to experience when transitioning from existing practices to adopting an Evidence-Based Practice for Co-occurring Disorders. Numerous obstacles (e.g., reimbursement methodology, regulatory standards, minimal financial resources, etc.) may hinder providers incorporating Evidence-Based Practices in general.

Adopting an Evidence-Based Practice also requires providers to decide to modify current practices, research new, effective practices, and incorporate such practices.Additionally, providers must ensure that incorporating Evidence-Based practices satisfy regulatory requirements, are adopted in a cost-effective manner, facilitate outcome management, and are compatible with existing or developing information systems. Overcoming these requirements may be daunting given the demands and responsibilities that providers face.

The mission of TRI involves facilitating that providers incorporate an Evidence-Based Practice in a cost-effective, outcomes oriented manner, supported by state-of-the-art web-based technology.To this end, TRI has developed web-based, Multidimensional Assessment and Treatment Planning Instruments. The Multidimensional Screening Inventory (MSI) is used as an initial evaluation.Complementing the MSI is the Multidimensional Progress Report (MPR) used as a brief, ongoing evaluation throughout treatment. These assessments consist of patient self-report (multiple-choice items) followed by a semi-structured clinical interview, which automatically generates a narrative report.Advantages of these assessments include more comprehensive information, increased patient involvement, time-saving and cost-effectiveness, and organizing individuals’ functioning across 15 Life Dimensions.

Multidimensional Treatment Planning (MTP) allows patients and clinicians to prioritize treatment foci among the 15 Life Dimensions found in the assessments.  Advantages of Multidimensional Treatment Planning include increasing assessment data to generate treatment goals, improving therapeutic relationship, and promoting treatment consistent with Evidence-Based Practices.

Committed to applied research in treatment settings, Multidimensional Instruments allow TRI to gather, analyze, and provide treatment providers Quarterly Administrative Reports capturing invaluable outcome related information. Specifically, the provider has access to patient demographics, clinical behavior, treatment process, and treatment impact.Furthermore, providers can access comparative outcome information from other treatment providers.

Finally, TRI offers consultation to establish provider objectives, examine information derived from multidimensional instruments, outline and assist with implementation of recommendations for improved service delivery.

In summary, TRI has developed a solution to the challenge of adopting Evidence-Based Practices into clinical practice.TRI has achieved this solution by developing web-based, multidimensional instruments, which:

  • Combine patient self-report with clinician interview to generate comprehensive assessments and narrative reports.
  • Facilitate Treatment Planning practices to correspond with assessment data.
  • Organize assessment and treatment planning across 15 Life Dimensions.
  • Capture and analyze data regarding patient demographics, clinician behavior, treatment process, and treatment impact supporting outcome management.
  • Offer providers comparative outcome data consistent with similar treatment providers.
  • Offer Service Redesign consultations to support implementation of improved service delivery.

Utilization of TRI multidimensional instruments empowers providers to transition from current practice to evidence-based best practices and improved treatment outcomes.
