Good Samaritan Hospital – Samaritan Center


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 abuse and dependence, gambling addiction, anxiety and depression.

Samaritan Center offers 24-hour emergency services and acute-care hospitalization, as well as outpatient therapy.


Inpatient services are intended for emergency purposes only. The center also offers a partial hospitalization program (PHP) and general outpatient care.

The Samaritan Center publishes almost no information about its treatment program, though an article in the Indianapolis Monthly from 2013 indicated that treatment included group therapy. Additionally, a document produced by the Southwest Indiana Regional Council on Aging (SWIRCA) indicates that treatment is primarily focused on dual diagnosis treatment. According to the facility’s website, there’s also a day program for teens as well as specialized services for children.

In a recent report, the Samaritan Center announced that it received funding from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration to cover the increased flow of clients seeking help with substance use disorder. The money will be used to offer greater outpatient support and minimize admissions to inpatient care.
