Chemical Dependency

Because most addictive disorders are complex, multi-faceted, progressive illnesses, Good Samaritan offers several treatment options for substance abuse or dependent patients.

Inpatient Medical Detoxification

Our dedicated medical detoxification unit provides safe detoxification from certain drugs and alcohol. Once detoxified, many patients transition into one of our lower levels of care.

Outpatient Medical Detoxification

In outpatient detoxification, an attending physician manages patients’ detoxification to ensure safe withdrawal. Patients are also seen by a registered nurse every day to monitor their symptoms, progress, and clinical needs throughout the program.

Chemical Dependency Partial Hospitalization Program

With a structured weekday program of six hours a day, this level of care incorporates Dual Diagnosis treatment and introduces relapse prevention, which is a cornerstone of treatment throughout the patient’s stay.

Chemical Dependency Intensive Outpatient Program

A three-hour day or evening treatment, the Intensive Outpatient Program teaches our patients about addiction and offers them personalized relapse-prevention plans.

Alumni Aftercare Support Groups

An essential tool for continued sobriety and support throughout a patient’s recovery, Aftercare offers free morning and evening support groups. The Alumni Association also plans social functions throughout the year and has established an Internet listserv so that patients can stay connected.

Nicotine & Tobacco Dependency Support Group

Designed to support and educate patients and community members who would like to quit smoking, this free support group meets weekly.

Revision Relapse Prevention Therapy

As a planned expansion of the Chemical Dependency program in 2003, this group will focus exclusively on chemical dependency relapse prevention. It is designed for those who have abstained for a period or who have been through treatment before and want to revise their recovery.
