We treat primary conditions, such as major depression and anxiety disorders, as well as chemical dependencies. Additionally, our 18-bed inpatient psychiatric unit on our Mission Oaks campus in Los Gatos, California, cares for patients who require 24-hour monitoring and/or medically supervised detoxification.

Inpatient behavioral health treatment

Some people experience severe symptoms related to mental health conditions, which may require inpatient hospital treatment. We offer this at our inpatient psychiatric unit, where patients receive structured, highly monitored behavioral health care. Here, we care for patients with mood and anxiety disorders and offer specialized care for patients with dual diagnosis—those with both a substance abuse disorder and primary mental health condition.

Behavioral health outpatient treatment options

We offer a wide range of specialized outpatient programs to help patients with mood, anxiety and substance abuse disorders. Our programs focus on reducing symptoms and teaching coping skills to help patients readapt to their daily lives.

We offer:

  • Adult behavioral health partial hospitalization program
  • Adult chemical dependency intensive outpatient program
  • Adult chemical dependency partial hospitalization program
  • Adult dual diagnosis intensive outpatient program
  • Adult dual diagnosis partial hospitalization program
  • Adult intensive outpatient program
  • Perinatal mood intensive outpatient program
  • Senior outpatient group therapy

Substance abuse treatment

If you or a loved one needs treatment for substance abuse, we provide inpatient hospital detoxification services in which patients are medically supervised 24/7. After this type of inpatient stay, patients may participate in our chemical dependency partial hospitalization program or chemical dependency intensive outpatient program. Alternatively, some patients may transition from our partial hospitalization program to our intensive outpatient program as a step-down in their care process. Throughout it all, patients will have access to a wide range of behavioral health specialists, including psychiatrists and addictionologists.

Support groups

We recognize the importance of continued care and support following treatment in one of our programs. After completing treatment, patients are welcome to attend our Alumni Aftercare Support Group. This group provides a safe space for patients to receive continued support throughout their recovery.

Additionally, we host the Perinatal Mood Support Group for pregnant women and new moms experiencing anxiety, sadness or a lack of support. This group meets every Wednesday from 11:00am to noon.
