Our Behavioral Health Services in San Jose, CA
Adult Psychiatric Inpatient Services
The dedicated medical team at Good Samaritan Hospital has been successfully
providing adult psychiatric inpatient services to the San Jose community
since 1975. We provide a safe, supportive environment for adult patients
with severe or life-threatening psychiatric problems, including:
- Major depression
- Bipolar illness
- Anxiety disorders
Our goal is to provide quality care to prevent, support, and treat mental,
emotional, and behavioral conditions and to return the patient to his
or her home and community as soon as possible. With an emphasis on a flexible
continuum of care, patients are thoroughly evaluated and placed in the
least restrictive, most cost-effective, and most clinically appropriate
setting while they are treated.
Adult Partial Hospitalization Services
Good Samaritan’s Adult Partial Hospitalization Program is a structured,
cost-effective alternative to 24-hour inpatient hospitalization. The program—which
consists of six-hour days, five days a week—delivers flexible levels
of care tailored to the individual's needs. Our program incorporates
dual diagnosis (addictive and mental illness diagnoses) assessment and
treatment services. Many patients from the PHP are able to eventually
transition into the Intensive Outpatient Program.
Intensive Outpatient Services
Our morning, afternoon, and evening Intensive Outpatient Programs are individualized
for each patient as he or she transitions back to the home or workplace.
The program is held three to five days per week, two to three hours a
day. The average stay is typically two to three weeks.
A Dual Diagnosis Intensive Outpatient Program is also available for those
addictive and mental illness diagnoses. We also offer Aftercare Support Groups so
that we can provide a continuing level of support during the day or evening
for patients who have been discharged from treatment.
Behavioral Health Services for Older Adults
At Good Samaritan Hospital, our years of experience have shown us that
older adults often have specific needs in
behavioral health. It is for this reason that we have designed a program just for adults
65 years and older. The program consists of weekly support group meetings
that focus on mental health issues related to aging, such as depression,
grief, loss, and social support.
Support and ancillary services for our older adult group include:
- Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
- Tai Chi
- Music Meditation Therapy
- Pain Management Through Alternative Therapies
