Good Samaritan Hospital – Behavioral Health


The Behavioral Health department of Good Samaritan Hospital in Suffern, N.Y., offers inpatient and outpatient treatment for adults struggling with substance use disorders. Medical detox is provided, along with a dual diagnosis track for those with co-occurring mental illness. This facility integrates evidence-based treatment with 12-step-based spiritual care. Good Samaritan is an affiliate of Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla and of Bon Secours Charity, which operates a 28-day residential rehab program in Port Jervis.


Clients of Good Samaritan Hospital’s Behavioral Health program receive a full assessment for chemical dependency and co-occurring psychiatric or medical concerns. Detoxification services incorporate medicine and counseling, which continue throughout rehab as appropriate for each individual.

In addition to pastoral care, treatment plans involve addiction education, a weekly family support program, individual counseling, and group sessions. Specialized tracks available include gender-specific programs and programming designed for individuals involved with the criminal justice. Groups also address anger management, relapse prevention, nicotine cessation, relationships, and process addictions such as gambling.

The outpatient program at Good Samaritan, known as the Monsignor Patrick J. Frawley Mental Health Outpatient Clinic, offers a substance abuse program for adults, which typically includes a combination of medication management and group therapy, as well as treatment for emotional and psychiatric disorders in adolescents, adults and geriatric clients.


The Good Samaritan Hospital Behavioral Health treatment team includes physicians, nurses, psychiatrists, licensed alcohol and drug counselors, case managers, social workers, and nutritionists, according to the facility’s website.

  • This was a hospital stay for 7 days. Everyone is overworked and underpaid. Food was mediocre and there was no productive leisure activities. The doctor was hard to get a hold of. This hospital was no worse than other hospitals I've been in.
