This infographic presents insights derived from The River Source’s comprehensive analysis of over 603 clients using the Brief Addiction Monitor (BAM) assessments. The BAM is a multifaceted tool that evaluates key areas such as recent substance abuse patterns, cravings, recovery confidence, support systems, physical and mental health, financial security, satisfaction with recovery, and spirituality. These assessments are conducted at various stages of our clients’ treatment journey, enabling us to track and measure their progress comprehensively. This data-driven approach not only underscores our commitment to evidence-based treatment but also highlights the tangible success our clients achieve throughout their recovery process.

Day 1

The first day of treatment. This is when risk is highest, and recovery skills are yet to be developed

Inpatient Complete

Leaving the safety of inpatient treatment reintroduces life stressors such as work, strained family relationships, and other triggers that may challenge your early sobriety. This data shows that we’ve accomplished some pretty major milestones, but that there is still much work to be done.

Outpatient Begins

These scores reflect the first 5-10 days of outpatient treatment. This is where clients begin to experience life while they use and develop their tools. Recovery Success scores tend to take a slight dip as clients become familiar with processing things in real time. This data shows how crucial it is to stay committed to long term treatment as recovery is exceedingly difficult upon leaving inpatient treatment.

Outpatient Continues

By using the tools you’ve gained in our inpatient and outpatient program you will see a drastic improvement in Recovery Success while continuing a steady decline on risk factors. At this stage, clients have a better insight into their recovery and are much more equipped to utilize their newly learned coping skills. This measurement is taken approximately 2-3 months into the outpatient program.

Outpatient Complete

Using the tools they’ve gained in inpatient and outpatient programs, clients see improved recovery success following the completion of our outpatient program. By This stage, clients will now be eligible for the Recovery Guarantee.

Aftercare and Alumni

A client’s recovery will be challenged without the support of treatment, but The River Source aftercare program helps you build a community of support for lasting success. Recovery effort doesn’t stop after formal treatment is complete. Clients who maintain a close support network and regularly engage in recovery activities see a continued drop in Risk scores and maintain a high Success score. This measurement shows the average score of clients who’ve been participating in our alumni services for 6-12 months.

Recovery Success

Recovery Success is a score that focuses on the strengths and resources that support the client’s recovery. This includes the presence and quality of a supportive social network, such as family, friends, or support groups that encourage sobriety. It also looks at the client’s engagement in positive activities and recovery programs, their overall mental and physical health, financial stability, and their satisfaction with their progress in recovery. A higher score in this category indicates a robust set of protective factors that can shield against relapse. By understanding and bolstering these protective elements, we can enhance the resilience and long-term success of our clients in their recovery journey.

Risk of Relapse

This category delves into factors that may increase the likelihood of substance use. It includes elements like the intensity and frequency of cravings, emotional states that may trigger substance use (such as stress, anxiety, or depression), and exposure to environments or situations that historically led to substance use. By monitoring these risk factors closely, we can identify potential challenges or triggers in a client’s recovery process. This proactive approach allows us to address these issues promptly, adapting our treatment strategies to mitigate these risks.
