Supportive Outpatient Treatment – Aftercare
SOP is for those who have successfully completed our, or another Intensive Outpatient Program, or another type of Phase 1 treatment, such as an in-patient treatment program. SOP is designed to transition the client from the intensity of initial treatment to the lifelong support of community support groups, such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous.
Because the goal of SOP is to bridge the client from successful treatment (Phase 1) to community support, there are two “step down” phases to their aftercare. During Phase 2, clients attend two hour sessions, twice a week, for five weeks. When they progress to Phase 3, they reduce their participation to a single weekly two hour session.
The primary focus of SOP is assisting clients in developing the life management skills that they need to implement their relapse prevention plan. Clients who are new to recovery benefit from this extra support as they begin creating new habits and practicing new coping skills for substance-free living. Throughout this time they are solidifying their participation in their community support group, so that they have solid support in maintaining sobriety after their graduation from the program.
To be eligible for SOP, clients must have successfully completed either our IOP, another IOP, or another type of Phase 1 treatment, such as an in-patient treatment program. Clients whose Phase 1 treatment was completed in another program need to complete an Intake session, to orient them to the program.
