Outpatient Behavioral Health Services

Centers for Mental Wellness

Continuing the Circle of Care

Patients can visit our Centers for Medical Wellness to continue their healing outside of a hospital setting.

Our outpatient programs are designed for adults who are 18 and older and are experiencing psychological difficulties, but do not need to be hospitalized. Patients who have been hospitalized can continue their healing journey at our outpatient Centers for Mental Wellness in Crown Point and in East Chicago.

Our outpatient services can address:

  • Anxiety
  • Adult Attention deficit hyperactivity
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Depression
  • Full cognitive (thinking and problem-solving) assessment
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress
  • Schizophrenia
  • Stress
  • Treatment-resistant psychiatric disorders.

The Behavioral Health Services team of clinical professionals also offers Ketamine therapy for individuals who are suffering from depression and meet special criteria for quick relief of their symptoms. Ketamine infusion, administered under the direction and supervision of an anesthesiologist at St. Catherine Hospital, has the ability to work right away. Most antidepressants can take weeks, even months, to provide relief from depression. 

Feeling better, faster, and getting the mood to improve faster is an important first step to ward off depression.

Research has shown that a series of six infusions, given every other day over a 12 to 14 day period can produce optimal outcomes. Ketamine infusion can decrease the symptoms of depression in about 60 to 70 percent of all patients who receive it. While Ketamine therapy is proving to be very promising, it isn't for everyone.
