A therapist and counselor in Irvine, California, Dr. Jorge Galindo is also a reserve deputy sheriff with the Orange County Sheriff’s Department. Dr. Jorge Galindo studied at Alliant University’s California School of Professional Psychology and completed an internship at St. Joseph Hospital, an award-winning inpatient psychiatric hospital in Orange, California.

St. Joseph Hospital provides treatment to individuals in need of 24-hour treatment for psychiatric issues or chemical dependency, including comorbid conditions. Patients receive comprehensive care, beginning with a physician consultation to discuss their medical and psychosocial conditions and to create a plan of care. The hospital’s multidisciplinary team then carries out the treatment plans, which entail medication management under supervision and treatment of both psychiatric symptoms and substance dependence, including supervised detoxification from alcohol and other substances.

Also focusing on patient education, St. Joseph Hospital teaches patients about their symptoms and conditions and incorporates a variety of therapeutic modalities into the plan of care, including both individual and group therapy. By providing thorough discharge planning, the hospital aims to prepare patients for a successful transition to their homes or to outpatient programs.
