More About 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.
