STRUGGLING WITH ADDICTION?
In 2016, only an estimated 6.9% of adults with mental illness and substance abuse disorder received the mental health and substance abuse care they needed.
Mental illness is common among people who struggle with substance abuse and addiction.
The Wellness Recovery Action Plan® or WRAP®, is a self-designed prevention and wellness process that anyone can use to get well, stay well and make their life the way they want it to be. It was developed in 1997 by a group of people who were searching for ways to overcome their own mental health issues and move on to fulfilling their life dreams and goals. It is now used extensively by people in all kinds of circumstances, and by health care and mental health systems all over the world to address all kinds of physical, mental health and life issues.
