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
The updated SOAP sessions begin today, August 22nd, 2022, and will run 3 days a week (Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday) from 5:00-8:00 PM. We now have a dedicated clinician on island available for residents. Our office is located at 35 Old South Rd, Nantucket, MA 02554. Please reach out to 508.228.3955 for more information.
