Immediate Response

Edgewater Health responded to a major need in our community and developed the Rapid Access Center (RAC). It is the only one of its kind in all of Indiana. The program provides immediate response to adult individuals experiencing a psychiatric crisis that includes severe psychosis or depression, intrusive behaviors, and/or extreme thoughts of suicide or harm to others but are willing to voluntarily admit to this program.

Program Details

  • The program also provides services to individuals experiencing comorbid substance use or abuse issues.
  • The program focuses on hospital and jail diversion and is a collaboration of community representatives from the area hospitals, law enforcement, emergency medical service personnel, and community providers.
  • The center operates 24/7 and has two distinct programs: Immediate Psychiatric Care Clinic and the Short-term Crisis Residential Unit.


If there is an immediate fear of death or injury, please call 911.
