Utah Recovery Assistance Program (URAP)
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.
Individuals 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.
