WRAP® co-facilitated by trained peers has been recognized by the United States Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA) as evidence-based practices and listed in the National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices (SAMHSA, 2010). Researchers from the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Illinois at Chicago conducted a randomized control trial that demonstrated significantly positive mental health and community integration outcomes.
Individuals with severe trauma participated in the research and WRAP® groups based on the values and practices developed by Mary Ellen Copeland, PhD and maintained by the Copeland Center for Wellness and Recovery (Cook, et al., 2012). These findings have been replicated in other studies conducted across the United States and around the world. The evidence clearly demonstrates that participation in evidence-based peer support services and WRAP® groups can help individuals achieve positive self-management of their lives (Buffington, 2003; Allot, et al. 2002; Scottish Centre for Social Research & Pratt, R. 2010).
