Wellness Self-Management Plus (WSM+) is a curriculum-based clinical practice designed to assist adults who are simultaneously dealing with mental health and substance use problems. The topics covered include a number of research-informed approaches that are organized into a comprehensive and coordinated set of practices.
 
Working with experts at the New York State Office of Addiction Services and Supports (OASAS), CPI has updated the WSM+ workbook to reflect changes and increased knowledge in the field.
