The Gooden Center Promise.
As a nonprofit organization, the main advantage that The Gooden Center has always possessed over the more profit oriented treatment centers is two fold: the quality of our treatment, and the relationships that we make along the way. Each of these resources is treated with the care and respect that they deserve.
The Gooden Center promise is one of a continuing, mutually beneficial, partnership.
Treatment Phases at The Gooden Center
Residential Treatment Center
RTC or Residential Treatment Center is the most in-depth mental health treatment option. You visit our Pasadena mental health clinic and stay with us, in a home-like environment. Here, you receive personalized care with 24/7 monitoring, full support from a caring and empathetic staff, and full access to a range of complementary therapies throughout the day. Our inpatient mental health treatment program is delivered over 90 days, complete with a non-repeated DBT program, daily ACT and CBT groups, and one-on-one therapy. Every visitor receives daily access to gym, exercise, nutritional therapy, and other programs designed to improve your health and wellbeing for the long-term.
Out Patient Programs
Our Partial Hospitalization Program delivers the same 90-day DBT program delivered with our base residential treatment, with ACT and CBT groups, plus one-on-one therapy, typically delivered over 5 days per week. Normally sessions last 3-8 hours, and you return to your own home for the rest of the day. Our PHP program offers a structured and highly supportive way to seek out mental help while still fulfilling responsibilities, taking care of family, and otherwise, living your life.
Our Intensive Outpatient Program or IOP offers a lighter mental health treatment solution, delivering 3-8 hours of counseling and therapy 3 days per week. These programs deliver non-consecutive treatment, but still offer personalized treatment and support as well as access to complementary therapy such as nutritional therapy.
Mental illnesses cannot be cured. For many of us, they remain recurring issues throughout our lives. It’s crucial to continue to follow up and to continue to seek treatment. That’s why the Gooden Center offers a free aftercare program to our alumni.
