Outer Cape Health Services opened a new intensive day program for addiction recovery called the Structured Outpatient Addiction Program (SOAP). The program provides individual and group support for goal setting to achieve and maintain sobriety, pursue education and employment, secure stable housing and improve health and wellness.
Consumers can be referred to SOAP by a primary care or behavioral health professional, a community-based provider organization. Self-referrals are also accepted. Outer Cape Health Services also offers recovery coaching as a complement to SOAP and to its medication-assisted withdrawal program. SOAP is recommended for people who do not require a medically managed detoxification, or are continuing treatment after discharge from an inpatient treatment program or are seeking to work on recovery in an intensive outpatient setting.
The program lasts from four to eight weeks depending on the individual’s recovery goals. SOAP provides a continuum of recovery services, including outpatient group, individual and family counseling. The SOAP program meets virtually from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.
Non-profit Outer Cape Health Services was founded in 1987 through the merger of Health Associates of Provincetown (established in 1972) and the AIM Medical Center in Wellfleet (established in 1966). It currently serves nearly 18,000 consumers annually. In addition to SOAP, its service line includes an Office-Based Opioid Treatment (OBOT) program, which includes group counseling, and standalone Recovery Coaching or as a complement to SOAP or OBOT. Recovery coaching is a 1:1 peer-based service providing assistance to those seeking to support their own recovery from addiction disorder.
