WELLNESS RECOVERY ACTION PLAN (WRAP)
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:
- decrease and prevent intrusive or troubling feelings and behaviors
- increase personal empowerment
- improve quality of life, and
- 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. A WRAP® also includes plans for responses from others when an individual cannot make decisions, take care of him/herself, and/or keep him/herself safe.
The participant is the one who develops their WRAP. They may choose to have supporters, including health care professionals, help them create their WRAP but the individual remains in control of the process. Individuals learn to use WRAP® through a peer-led and peer-engaged group process. Formal WRAP® groups typically range in size from 10 to 15 participants and are led by two trained co-facilitators who use WRAP for their own recovery. All Wellness in the Woods WRAP facilitators are certified peer specialists and trained through the Copeland Center for Recovery. Information is delivered and skills are developed through lectures, discussions, and individual and group exercises. Key WRAP® concepts and values are illustrated through examples from the lives of the co-facilitators and participants.
WRAP® participants create a personalized recovery system of wellness tools and action plans to achieve a self-directed wellness vision despite life’s daily challenges. Graduates of the BLA WRAP will be offered weekly ongoing support for up to six months in a virtual venue. A person’s WRAP® is a tool that can be used for a lifetime, and a voluntary WRAP® group can be a long-term peer support resource for ensuring that this valuable and personalized recovery system remains sharp and useful for building a healthy and successful life in the community.
