Our Programs

At San Juan Capestrano Hospital, we provide detox, inpatient and outpatient services to adolescents, adults, and seniors struggling with addiction and mental health issues. We offer specialized programming options to ensure that each patient receives the level of care they need.

Inpatient Program

Our adult inpatient program is designed for adults, aged 18 and older, who are suffering from emotional, behavioral, and mental health concerns and/or substance abuse issues. Examples of the types of conditions that can be treated in this program include, but are not limited to, major depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, alcohol dependence, drug abuse, and various behavioral problems. In each unit of our adult inpatient programming, a daily program is developed and all patients are invited and encouraged to participate in each of the activities offered. With a typical length of stay falling between five and seven days, patients in this program are afforded a number of therapeutic interventions, including four individual therapy sessions each week, group therapy, and family therapy. Various experiential therapies are offered as well.

Our adolescent inpatient program is designed for youth between the ages of 13 and 17 who are struggling with the symptoms of such mental health conditions as depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and various behavioral problems, amongst many others. Treatment is also available for young people who are struggling with chemical dependency concerns. Individual therapy sessions occur four times per week, and group, family, and experiential therapies are also offered on an ongoing basis. Additionally, on the adolescent unit, patients meet with a psychiatrist daily in order to ensure the therapeutic effectiveness of any medications that may have been prescribed and to make any changes that may be necessary. Similar to the adult impatient program, the typical length of stay for our adolescent patients typically falls between five and seven days and each day is comprised of daily programs that are specific to each unit and all patients are invited to engage in all of the activities that are offered.

Partial Hospitalization Program

Our adult partial hospitalization program (PHP) is designed for adults, aged 18 and older, who are struggling with such mental health concerns as depression, generalized anxiety disorder, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, posttraumatic stress disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, phobias, and schizoaffective disorder, amongst many others. These patients require intensive services in order to overcome the symptoms that are plaguing them, but do not require the 24/7 monitoring that is offered in an inpatient setting. In this program, individual sessions are held at least twice each week, group sessions are held four times daily, and family sessions occur at least once during a patient’s time in PHP. Additionally, patients engage in occupational therapy at least twice a week and experiential therapies occur once each week.

Our adolescent partial hospitalization program (PHP) is designed for adolescents between the ages of 13 and 17 who are struggling with any number of mental health concerns, but who do not require the intensity of care that is offered in an inpatient setting. Youth who engage in this programming option are typically suffering from mental health conditions such as, but not limited to, depression, oppositional defiant disorder, anxiety disorders, PTSD, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, OCD, impulse control disorders, and specific phobias. In our adolescent PHP, patients take part in two individual therapy sessions per week, four group sessions per day, occupational therapy daily, family therapy at least once during the youth’s stay in programming, and various experiential therapies. Additionally, adolescents meet with a psychiatrist at least twice each week for medication management.

Intensive Outpatient Program

Our adult substance abuse intensive outpatient program (IOP) is designed to treat adults, aged 18 and older, who are struggling with an addiction to various substances, including marijuana, cocaine, alcohol, meth, heroin, and prescription medications, among many others. Patients who engage in IOP have individual therapy at least twice a week and family therapy at least once during every treatment stage. The group therapy sessions that take place during this program are broken down into three distinct stages, of which are tailored to meet the unique needs of those taking part in this treatment option.

The staff of this hospital treat you with true professionalism, the therapies they offer help you in your mental condition to overcome them from the moment you walk through the doors you will feel. As a family for his treatment so you feel comfortable and calm. From the beginning it's nice.
