Supportive Outpatient ProgramS - SOP
About Our Supportive Outpatient Program
Our Supportive Outpatient Program (SOP) is designed to integrate individual counseling and group counseling in an effort to support and sustain successful recovery from drugs, alcohol, or both. We built the program specifically to support clients who are better suited for a more supportive rather than intensive approach to substance abuse/dependency problems. Our SOP focuses on clients continuing on their path to recovery and provides a safe support structure to reinforce positive behaviors, strengthen relapse prevention skills and boost self-esteem.
Who Are Supportive Outpatient Programs For?
Clients who are recommended for SOP may include individuals who have transitioned from the intensive outpatient program or individuals who may not qualify for the intensive outpatient level of care. These individuals generally have a basic understanding of the addiction and recovery process and receive counseling twice a week- one group and one individual session- to prevent relapse. All of our Arise Recovery Centers’ locations offer a supportive outpatient level of care for those clients who have completed the regular course of treatment but feel they need to maintain additional support in their recovery for a longer period of time. It is ideal for individuals who have successfully completed an Intensive Outpatient Program in the past and who are looking to enjoy less rigorous treatment without putting their sobriety at risk. Some clients have achieved months of freedom from substance abuse, while others enroll because their sobriety is on shaky ground. Whatever the case, SOP is a great option for many of our clients.
How Our Supportive Outpatient Program Works:
Our Supportive Outpatient Programs last an average of 10 weeks. During SOP the client will be required to attend 1 group session per week and also meet with their therapist 1 hour each week. This is less time consuming for the client. During SOP we will be focusing on relapse prevention, life skills, and re-integration to normal life. We will continue to use evidence-based treatment methods during SOP.
