Hospital detoxification program in San Jose

At Good Samaritan Hospital, our doctors know that addiction disorders are complex and progressive. That is why we offer multiple treatment options for patients with alcohol and drug abuse disorders. Our patients have access to full-service behavioral health care at our Mission Oaks campus in Los Gatos, California. Our treatments include inpatient care, supervised medical detoxification and two chemical dependency outpatient programs.

For more information about our substance abuse treatment options, please call our behavioral health intake team on the Mission Oaks campus at (408) 559-2000.

Inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation

Our 18-bed, inpatient psychiatric hospital provides medically supervised detoxification services. Patients must meet certain criteria to be admitted to this unit.

Most patients require a three- to five-day stay in our hospital for detoxification. Once an inpatient stay is completed, we offer outpatient programs to help our patients continue on the path to recovery.

Emergency substance abuse services

If you or a loved one requires emergency treatment due to alcohol poisoning or a drug overdose, our emergency room (ER) at our main hospital is open 24/7 to provide treatment and stabilization. If needed, patients may be transferred to our Mission Oaks location for inpatient care after their ER visit.

Outpatient chemical dependency programs

Treatment is not finished after inpatient detoxification. Patients still require supervision and support to overcome their addictions and return to a life without drugs and alcohol. To help patients maintain sobriety during this time, our behavioral health care offerings also include outpatient programs for patients with chemical dependencies.

We offer two outpatient substance abuse programs for continued treatment—a partial hospitalization program and an intensive outpatient program. The treatment team for both programs includes:

  • Addictionologists
  • Chemical dependency counselors
  • Internists
  • Licensed clinical social workers
  • Licensed mental health therapists
  • Psychiatrists
  • Registered nurses

Our programs provide individualized treatment and discharge planning to help patients reach their goals and return to a sober lifestyle.

Outpatient program treatment plans

Many of the patients in our programs find it hard to function on a daily basis, having problems with work, self-care, relationships and completing simple daily tasks. Often, this causes patients to feel hopeless, sad, depressed, anxious and even guilty. Our chemical dependency doctors are available to help. They provide counseling and teach coping skills to enable patients to overcome their addictions and maintain long-term sobriety.

Our programs follow a group therapy model that specializes in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). Programs may include:

  • Coping mechanism education to manage triggers and cravings
  • Creation of a relapse prevention plan
  • Family group meetings to provide education and support to patients and their families
  • Interpersonal process groups to understand human behaviors and promote healing
  • Skill development groups to identify coping skills to maintain sobriety
  • Weekly meetings with a psychiatrist or addictionologist to assess medication needs

Adult chemical dependency partial hospitalization program (CDPHP)

Our CDPHP is designed for patients with an alcohol and/or drug abuse problem who are looking for a highly structured daytime treatment program. This program is beneficial for patients whose substance abuse disorder is out of control and negatively affecting their life.

The CDPHP operates five days a week from Monday to Friday. Patients attend our program on these days from 9:00am to 3:00pm and are able to return home in the evenings.

Adult chemical dependency intensive outpatient program (CDIOP)

Our CDIOP offers continued care for patients with substance abuse disorders and often acts as a step-down in care for patients who participated in our CDPHP. We provide our patients with the knowledge and skills they need to return to their daily life feeling confident in their newfound sobriety.

The CDIOP operates three to five days per week, depending on individual need. Patients can receive care Monday through Friday from 9:00am to noon.

Continued support for alumni

After a patient receives care for a chemical dependency, we encourage them to participate in our Alumni Aftercare Support Group. This type of continuing support is important for patients to maintain sobriety.

The support group provides free afternoon and evening meetings for patients who have completed our CDIOP and/or CDPHP.

Patients will also be connected to community support groups, such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Marijuana Anonymous (MA) and Smart Recovery.
