Good Samaritan Hospital is a 232-bed community healthcare facility. Alongside a broad range of medical services, the hospital runs a comprehensive behavioral health division - namely, Samaritan Center. Located in Vincennes, Ind., the center treats a range of mental and behavioral health disorders, including alcohol and drug dependence, gambling addiction, and co-occurring disorders. Samaritan Center offers 24-hour emergency services and acute-care hospitalization, as well as a partial hospitalization program (PHP) and outpatient therapy. Detox is not available onsite.


The treatment options at Samaritan Center include inpatient emergency services, as well as its outpatient services. Clients can be admitted to the hospital for crisis stabilization and/or observation. However, patients are quickly transitioned into outpatient services, as soon as possible, for ongoing care. Inpatient services are intended for emergency purposes only and may include counseling and pharmacological intervention.

The center is one of 19 hospital-based facilities in the state that offer treatment services for behavioral health. The facility's outpatient-based programs include a partial hospitalization program (PHP) and general outpatient care. Both treatment programs begin with diagnostic evaluations, which include a series of medical and behavioral health examinations by a team of specialists to determine an individualized approach to care.

The treatment process focuses on traditional methods of care such as individual, group, and family therapy, which can help clients better understand the underlying factors of their addiction. Clients work with counselors over an extended period to develop new life habits and reduce negative behaviors. In addition to counseling, clients also participate in a range of educational classes and coping skills workshops.

Samaritan Center also provides specialized treatment for adolescents and children. It is one of the 73 Indiana facilities that offers programming for adolescents.
