Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP®) is an Evidence Based Program
WRAP® workshops provide a step-by-step process to identify and reduce unhealthy behaviors and patterns. Once those patterns are known, we create specifically designed plans to intervene as quickly as possible to avoid the pitfalls of the past, and further disruption to the present. WRAP® helps determine what is needed to nurture wellness on a daily basis, and learn the value of supports and how to use them most effectively.

WRAP® classes are facilitated by people who have lived and worked WRAP® in their own lives, have seen the benefits, and who have been specially trained to facilitate WRAP® classes.

Duration: WRAP® is offered in a number of formats ranging from intensive two-day classes to shorter, multi-week sessions. Two-day trainings for businesses and organizations are available at our location or yours.


Please contact WV Recovers for WV WRAP Connections to schedule a WRAP® training and inquire about workshop pricing or the WRAP® program.

Taking Action for Whole Health & Wellbeing

Taking Action Co-Facilitation Training

Speaking Out For Yourself:
A Self-Help Guide

The Copeland Center’s Taking Action for Whole Health & Wellbeing course is a co-facilitated group process that supports individuals in creating a personalized system for recovering, sustaining, and/or improving their whole health outcomes and enhancing their lifestyle.

The curriculum is based on the US Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration’s (SAMHSA) Taking Action curriculum and other recovery publications developed with input from individuals with lived experience of recovery from mental health, addictions, 

and co-occurring challenges.   The topics, practices, and approaches in this program have demonstrated effectiveness through various research studies and with input from care providers.  The Copeland Center’s Taking Action for Whole Health & Wellbeing program combines key curriculum topics with evidence-based and experiential-based peer-to-peer strategies.

Taking Action for Whole Health and Wellbeing is a curriculum led by two peer co-facilitators trained in the Copeland Center’s process for evidence-based, and experiential-based peer strategies.  Co-facilitator’s training incorporates over two decades of peer-based experience and evidenced-based engagement strategies such as Self-Directed Care, Wellness Self-management, Motivation Theory, and Peer Support.

Community Inclusion: Peer Roles in Promoting Inclusion and Participation. For more click below:

WV Recovers

Our goal is to promote and advance community inclusion and peer support services.

The Copeland Center for Wellness & Recovery and Temple University Collaborative on Community Inclusion have partnered together to develop and offer a training and technical assistance package to assist health care systems in the implementation of practices and tools to promote and advanced community participation for people in recovery through the intentional skills of Peer Supporters. We use a 3-step approach including a core 3-day Community Inclusion and Peer Support course. A key focal point of implementation is the support, development and training of the peer support workforce.  With the increasing awareness of the positive relationship between self-directed community participation, recovery and quality of life, we have developed this peer support certification course as a vehicle to develop and define critical roles and responsibilities for the peer support workforce to support the recovery and increased community participation for individuals receiving services in the public mental health system.
