Review by Rehabs.com Contributors


Edgewater Behavioral Health Services (EBHS) has been providing cost-effective mental health and addiction services in Gary, Ind., for more 40 years. The Turning Point Center, EBHS’s substance abuse program, offers abstinence-based treatment for individuals struggling with addiction. All care is offered on an outpatient basis and is appropriate for those with co-occurring mental health issues. Clients who require methadone maintenance may also find support through The New Life Center, which is located within The Turning Point Center. The facility also offers detox treatment through the New Life Center.


Outpatient care is offered at both standard and intensive outpatient (IOP) levels. The Turning Point Center aims to provide a path to lasting recovery by engaging family members and addressing any underlying mental health issues. Enrolled clients can expect to participate in a mix of individual therapy, family counseling, and group therapy. DUI program services are also available for those who need it.

The center strives to offer services at times that are convenient for those who must continue to work or fulfill family obligations while undergoing treatment. Both the general addiction treatment center and methadone maintenance facility are open seven days a week. Hours of operation are 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays and 6 to 9 a.m. weekends for the general center and 5:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. weekdays and 6 to 9 a.m. weekends for the methadone facility.


According to the facility’s website, the center employs psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, social workers, and case managers. Three reviewers polled by Rehabs.com to date rated the staff’s level of experience and training 3.3 out of five stars.


At this time, Rehabs.com has not yet received any reviews from this facility’s alumni, but a single anonymous reviewer submitted a five-star rating and a glowing testimonial on CiteHealth.[1] “I quit substance abuse and my mental state nd emotions improved tremendously! Thank all of you,” they wrote.


The three loved ones polled by Rehabs.com to date recommended Edgewater with an average 2.7 out of five stars. The highest average ratings were given to the facility’s treatment effectiveness and its accommodations, which received an average of 4.3 stars and four stars respectively. The facility’s holistic options and connectivity policy shared the lowest average rating of just 2.33 stars. One anonymous reviewer commended the “good” doctors, but cited a lack of organization. Another wrote: “Program its fine but needs better connectivity.”


According to Citehealth, both Medicaid and private insurance are accepted, and sliding scale fees are available to meet the needs of low-income and uninsured clients. Each intake at the methadone facility costs $12.
