URAP - Utah Recovery Assistance Program
The State of Utah has established a professional recovery program to assist chemically dependent individuals who hold professional licenses. The diversion program is titled the Utah Recovery Assistance Program ("URAP").
Prior to participation, program candidates must meet certain defined criteria. During the course of the program, participants undergo rehabilitation and maintenance of recovery in a confidential environment and are generally able to maintain their license.
Iindividuals may come to the attention of URAP by either voluntarily coming forward or as part of the investigation process of a complaint filed with the Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing.
Please Contact URAP
if you have a problem with drugs or alcohol;
if you have a patient with a professional license who needs help; or
if you know of another licensed professional who needs assistance.
You may remain anonymous.
You will receive information on what is expected of program participants, how DOPL ensures confidentiality, and what can be expected if participants successfully comply with the conditions agreed upon.
