The Department of Psychiatric Rehabilitation Services has recognized recovery-based interventions as a vital part of the treatment for all individuals.

Several Rehabilitation staff members have been trained as facilitators of the Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) – a recovery-based action plan developed by Mary Ellen Copeland, Ph.D.

Recovery-skills groups, based on the concepts of WRAP, have been implemented on the inpatient units, and in outpatient programs. To further promote recovery within our community, the department hosts a weekly Peer Support group, and Recovery oriented workshops. Peer Support gives people the opportunity to discuss important issues with other people in recovery. The group is facilitated by its members, and is not run by any of the IOL staff.
