  • I spent months sporadically attending AA meetings and counseling until it was suggested that I turn to the WPAP program to help me. The WPAP helped me stay accountable for my treatment and more importantly show me other professionals are going through similar hardships as me and that I wasn’t alone.

  • I truly appreciate WPAP... they have been very willing to talk to me and not make me feel judged or like a “hopeless” case. The road to recovery has been challenging for me, at times I do really well and at times I struggle. Attending meetings, counseling and leaning on WPAP has kept me on track.

  • I am forever grateful to a solid recovery program, people who believe in me and faith. As a recovering addict it is so important to have help in being held accountable, that is exactly what WPAP has done for me. I appreciate that the WPAP staff are so personable; they treat me with dignity and I never feel that I’m not important.
