Enhancing treatment through diagnostics, predictives and prescriptives.

Custom Tailored Addiction Treatment

Recover Integrity is the home of DIP, the revolutionary diagnostic tool for individuals struggling with mental health and/or substance abuse disorders. Harvard trained Drs. Charles & Ronnie Blakeney brought Harvard’s developmental model to the assessment of integrity gaps and recovery potential for people in addiction treatment. The Drs. Blakeney have been among the foremost leaders in the field for over 30 years. Policy makers, administrators, academics and clinicians praise their work in applying theory to practice as innovative, scientifically sound, accessible, and highly effective in tailoring treatment, and in program development and evaluation.

What is DIP?



DIP assesses each clients’ stage and state across various developmental domains, indicating areas of integration and strength through a series of innovative psychometric tests; providing a detailed and accurate profile of where each individual’s development has become stuck and aspects of the self, have split.


DIP’s diagnostics pinpoint critical turning points for relapse and/or recovery.


The assessment itself takes less than one hour and is proctored, but completely self administered by the client.


Developmental Severity Index

DIP provides a Developmental Severity Index that offers insight into a client’s emotion regulation, moral judgement, and other specific areas for accurate clinical and treatment planning. DIP’s predictives assist clinicians in understanding their client’s unique needs. DIP’s prescriptives offer tailormade treatment plans based on the profile of the individual client.


Treatment Planning

DIP’s initial predictives and prescriptives are used as a framework for treatment planning. Clinicians use a client’s profile to inform individualized care and create targeted, internal recovery goals. DIP’s secondary assessment measures a client’s progress towards these goals and offers new recommendations based on the progress achieved.


Assessment 2

45 days following the client’s initial assessment, a second assessment is given. This DIP measures a clients’s progress in treatment, where he  has grown, and where he is still stuck. This offers evidence so that the clinical team can re-calibrate treatment in response to on-going changes.

DIP can identify each client’s specific and unique underlying issues.

DIP prescribes the most effective treatment modalities.

DIP avoids predictable treatment traps, like splitting.

DIP indicates where, when, and how the treatment plan needs modification.

DIP provides important insights that would typically take months to discern.

DIP provides empirical evidence supporting critical treatment and financial decisions such as:

Readiness for another level of care.

Evidence for prolonging treatment.

The right time to begin trauma work.

The best time to begin family work.

Employment readiness.

Preparation for social re-integration into families and the world of work.
