The Gooden Center provides comprehensive, client-centered mental health treatment for men and women. Our team of experienced clinicians provide care in our peaceful, residential settings for a variety of diagnosis. Each tract has an appropriate set-down from inpatient to outpatient to transitional care.
Since 1962 The Gooden Center has provided addiction treatment to men in a residential setting. Combined with our outpatient and sober living programs, we provide a recommended 90 day track of service to those suffering from drug addiction. We are also equipped and fully licensed to do sub-acute detox services.
We Are In-Network and Contracted with Most Insurances
As a nonprofit, Gooden maintains a complete commitment to accessibility. Clinical excellence should not be reserved only for individuals with thousands of dollars to spend on treatment. As such, Gooden is in network and a preferred provider for most insurances, including: Anthem Blue Cross, Aetna, Cigna, UBH, Optum, Value Options, Blue Shield, Healthnet, and Magellan. Furthermore, our self pay rates average 65% less than for profit facilities. The care continues long after graduation, as the Gooden Center offers therapeutic aftercare, at no cost, forever, for the client and their family.
Why The Gooden Center?
Since 1962 we have been providing substance abuse treatment for men and women in home-like, residential centers.
Our mental health treatment facilities, established in 2017, provide the same model for those struggling with a myriad of mental health disorders.
Each program is distinct and uniquely tailored to the client-centered care we deliver everyday.

Through intense clinical, holistic, and experiential therapies, The Gooden Center provides the tools needed to gradually re-enter society and have an independent, fulfilling, and productive future.
Our programs are specifically tailored to men and women in mental health and substance abuse recovery. We are not a psychiatric hospital, but rather a unique home where people can coexist with like-minded peers also striving for a higher quality of living.
The Gooden Center was awarded a license by the state of California to deliver mental health residential treatment and is accredited by CARF for mental health services. We have created a program which is safe, supportive, and enriching to our clients and their loved ones.
“I went here. I went there. Then I came to The Gooden Center.”
“This is Frankie in Phoenix, AZ (2009 alumni) just dropping you a note to say hello. Hope you’re doing well and thank you for helping me get sober. Still not drinking any alcohol since January 20, 2009. Sending you my thanks and my love. Hope you’re doing well and I hope this message finds you.”
“Bishop Gooden Home has offered me the perfect environment for establishing a solid foundation of recovery. I came to BG because I was about to relapse again and I felt this was my only hope of avoiding disaster. Now I am enthusiastic again about attending A.A. and G.A. meetings, working the steps, having a sponsor and praying for strength from a power greater than myself. Thank you “BG” from the bottom of my heart.”
“I found a great sponsor from the Gooden Center alumni, and we are vigorously working the 12 steps. Gooden Center is an anchor in my life – a vital part of my recovery.”
