Crossroads Residential Programs
Crossroads offers short-term and long-term residential treatment for women, including pregnant women, of all ages and backgrounds for substance abuse and co-occurring mental health issues. Our residential programs provide the structure and stability many women need at the beginning of their recoveries.
Our residential programs include:
Crossroads’ 15-bed Residential Rehabilitation program provides women beginning their recovery from drug or alcohol addiction a safe, comfortable surrounding at the Boulton Center for Women and Children in Windham, Maine. This short-term residential program is structured to help women identify and accept their chemical dependency and any co-occurring mental health issues, identify relapse triggers and develop more appropriate coping skills to maintain abstinence. Topics unique to women are explored.
Individual, group and family counseling sessions are offered, along with educational programs for clients and their families. Clients also participate in 12-step meetings and recreational activities and are actively involved in developing their aftercare plans. Approximate treatment duration is typically 28 days.
Crossroads Back Cove is a 12-bed halfway house program for women recovering from drug or alcohol addiction in Portland, Maine. This long-term program is appropriate for women who have completed short-term, intensive treatment or have had previous experiences in recovery. Co-occurring mental health issues are addressed along with substance abuse, with a focus on issues that specifically impact women.
Clients participate in a variety of educational and therapeutic activities throughout treatment, gradually gaining skills and demonstrating growth in each area. Clients are required to work, attend school, volunteer or engage in some other meaningful activities outside of the program in the latter phases of treatment. Aftercare planning includes referrals to appropriate community resources for counseling, housing, medical and psychiatric care, education, work and/or vocational rehabilitation, as needed. Treatment duration is typically 6 months.
CAMP is the only program in Maine that provides on-site living arrangements to minor children of mothers in residential treatment for drug or alcohol addiction. The program is housed at the Boulton Center for Women and Children. In order to be eligible, women must be pregnant or postpartum, having a child less than one year old. Children from birth to age 10 may live with their mother while she participates in the Residential Rehabilitation treatment program in Windham, Maine.
CAMP clinical staff has special expertise in teaching and modeling appropriate parenting techniques, demonstrated in part through a variety of nurturing and fun activities for the children and their mothers. Parenting skills classes are offered along with age appropriate educational tools designed to help children better understand and cope with their mothers’ chemical dependency.
Child care services may be provided while mothers are participating in treatment but mothers remain responsible for their children’s care. In addition, Crossroads works with the local Windham schools to ensure a smooth transition for those school-aged children accompanying their mothers in treatment during the academic year.
