Structured Outpatient Addiction Program (SOAP)

SOAP sessions are held 3-5 days a week for 3.5 hours a day at various Gosnold locations, providing both day and evening groups.  SOAP is best suited for patients whose primary diagnosis is substance-use disorder.  SOAP aims to give patients a heightened level of self-awareness about their substance-use disorder, solid relapse prevention skills and a variety of coping skills to help them become independent adults in recovery. 

Patients are provided support through group therapy and a case manager will assist in creating an aftercare plan to meet the needs of each individual.  Patients have the opportunity to remain involved in their daily activities or create a new routine while attending SOAP.  Participation in SOAP can range from 4-8 weeks depending upon the recovery goals of the individual. 

SOAP is recommended for patients who do not require a medically managed detoxification, or are continuing treatment after discharge from an inpatient treatment program.  SOAP is designed to help patients understand, develop and enhance recovery skills, such as:

  • Recovery management and relapse prevention
  • Post-Acute Withdrawal Syndrome
  • 12-step orientation
  • Neurobiology of addiction
  • Medication Assisted Treatment
