Inpatient Chemical Dependency

Our in-patient alcoholism and drug treatment facility was established in 1987. 

There are two components to the program: a detoxification program and a rehabilitation program. Our philosophy integrates 12-step spirituality with the science of addiction medicine.

The detox phase of treatment is a comprehensive program providing medical, clinical and spiritual care.  The medical treatment plan includes: Identification of predisposing medical and psychiatric problems that may contribute to substance abuse; education of the patient regarding the disease and choices for treatment. 

To ensure a successful detoxification and rehabilitation for our patients, we utilize evidenced based medication while providing a safe, comfortable detox. Our multi-disciplinary team of chemical dependency professionals includes physicians, nurses, psychiatrists, social workers, counselors and nutritionists who provide support in individual, group and family settings.

We are accredited by the Joint Commission and NYS OASAS (Office of Alcohol Substance Abuse Services).

The medical treatment plan includes: 

  • Evaluation and treatment of withdrawal symptoms. 

  • Identification of predisposing medical and psychiatric problems that may contribute to substance abuse. 

  • Education of the patient regarding the disease and choices for treatment.

We realize that there are many factors to consider when treating each individual. That is why we assign a specialized team of chemical dependency professionals, including physicians, nurses, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, counselors and nutritionists to provide support in individual, group and family settings.

The chemical dependency program includes:

Ongoing treatment of physical and psychological conditions during rehabilitation.
Individualized treatment tracks that address specific issues related to chemical dependency such as relapse prevention, anger management, relationships and MICA (Mental ll Chemical Abuser).
Weekly family support meetings allowing visitation in a secure setting monitored by staff members.

Fees:

Good Samaritan Hospital accepts Medicare, Medicaid and private health carriers that provide benefits for Behavioral Health Services.
