Additionally, it is expected that you will also have developed and used your own WRAP® plan.

What is WRAP®?

The Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP®) is a personalized wellness and recovery system born out of and rooted in the principle of self-determination. WRAP® is a wellness and recovery approach that helps people to: 1) decrease and prevent intrusive or troubling feelings and behaviors; 2) increase personal empowerment; 3) improve quality of life; and 4) achieve their own life goals and dreams. Working with a WRAP® can help individuals to monitor uncomfortable and distressing feelings and behaviors and, through planned responses, reduce, modify, or eliminate those feelings.

What is included?

  • WRAP® workbook and materials 
  • 32 CEU’s for certified peer professional and peer specialist supervisors
  • Experienced facilitators working to create an honest, safe environment for exploration & healing
  • Refreshments and lunch provided each day

More about the WRAP® evidence-base

In 2010, WRAP® was recognized by the United States Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) as an evidence-based practice and listed in the National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices. (source: Copeland Center).
