SOAP

The Enhanced Structured Outpatient Addictions Program (SOAP) is a day treatment program designed to address the needs of individuals with co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders. SOAP is for clients in early recovery who are at high risk for relapse and/or overdose and require a more intensive level of care than outpatient services or a step-down from inpatient services.

Led by our multidisciplinary team, the program is 3.5 hours per day, 5 days per week and includes:

  • Individual, family and group psychotherapy and psycho-education
  • Toxicology screening when clinically indicated
  • Recovery support services, including intensive case management, care coordination and service linkage, and access to peer recovery supports
  • Discharge, transition and aftercare planning and supports
  • Participants gain increased self-awareness, solid relapse prevention skills, a toolbox of coping strategies, and peer supports that will help them sustain recovery.

Casa Care

Casa Esperanza, Inc. recognizes the importance of promoting a holistic and integrated model of care, including addressing clients’ comprehensive medical needs. Casa works in partnership with Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program (BHCHP) to provide integrated primary care services to clients enrolled in Familias Unidas through our collaborative CasaCare program.

Services are provided by a licensed Nurse, Nurse Practitioner, or Physician’s Assistant who is part of the Familias Unidas Multidisciplinary Team and collaborates actively with other disciplines to provide integrated care.

Familias Unidas works to address health disparities by providing integrated, culturally competent services that meet the needs of the whole person.
