Economic Calculator

Make Wiser Investments and More Persuasive Presentations

The Fletcher Group Economic Calculator is an exciting new tool that helps recovery program operators make wise financial decisions and win the support of stakeholders, funders, community members, and government officials. It does so by quantifying several economic benefits associated with recovery including avoided healthcare costs, avoided criminal justice costs, avoided productivity costs, and the individual valuation of health. The tool can benefit all kinds of recovery programs, including recovery homes, residential treatment programs, outpatient programs, and recovery community organizations.

Developed in collaboration with real-world recovery program operators, the new tool:

  • Provides stakeholders, funders, community members, and government officials with detailed documentation regarding the many benefits of recovery programs, including criminal justice and healthcare savings
  • Provides similar documentation to make the most of grant proposals and applications
  • Calculates the Return On Investment (ROI) of potential financial outlays, including facility and land acquisition
