Heritage Oaks Hospital Review

Heritage Oaks Hospital is a behavioral health hospital located in Sacramento, California. It offers both inpatient and outpatient treatment for substance abuse and co-occurring disorders like depression, anxiety, bipolar and a variety of other mental health issues. With three locations, Heritage Oaks offers psychiatric services for adolescents and adults that include both inpatient and outpatient care at the main location in northern Sacramento and outpatient services in West Sacramento and the nearby town of Roseville.

Accommodations and Food

The modern brick Heritage Oaks Hospital is set in an upscale, suburban Sacramento neighborhood. The inpatient facility has 125 beds and treats both substance abuse and psychiatric residents. Clients are separated into age-specific wings. There are specialized programs for teens, adults and senior citizens. Residents have same-sex roommates in spacious rooms with twin beds, personal desk areas and en suite bathrooms. There are lounges where residents can watch TV, read and play games during down time.

Clients eat three healthy meals per day in the cafeteria and the weekly menu is designed by a nutritionist. Food allergies and dietary restrictions can be accommodated.

Treatment and Staff

Heritage Oaks Hospital provides on-site detox and acute psychiatric stabilization under medical supervision. After detox, clients usually remain in the inpatient program for two to four weeks, although care is individualized. Residents attend group therapy and educational sessions several times each day and have individual therapy at least once a week. Clients receive comprehensive dual diagnosis support and, when needed, meet with a psychiatrist for medication management. Therapy uses CBT, DBT and the 12-step framework, as well as holistic methods. The treatment team encourages participation in 12-step meetings and brings local H&I meetings to the unit several times each week.

Services for adolescents between the ages of 13 and 17 at Heritage Oaks Hospital are specifically designed to meet the needs of younger clients. Treatment consists primarily of groups that focus on developing coping skills, family and individual therapies. Family therapy is an integral part of treatment and multi-family group sessions take place once a week. The older adult program is designed for seniors over the age of 62. Specialized older adult groups address topics like grief and loss, building community support and facing chronic pain and health issues.

The treatment team includes physicians, psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses, LCSWs, Master’s-level therapists and case managers.


Holistic therapies include fitness and nutrition counseling, yoga, art and music therapy. Aftercare is provided in the form of referrals for structured outpatient therapy at one of the three Oaks Outpatient Centers.

In Summary

The inpatient program at Heritage Oaks Hospital is an excellent choice for those who need intensive treatment with extensive dual diagnosis support. Its large, comfortable facility and variety of holistic options set it apart as a top option for those in the Sacramento area seeking care for psychiatric conditions and substance abuse.
