Addiction and behavioral health issues can interfere with multiple aspects of one’s life. They affect not only the person with the condition, but also those around them. Problems can develop with relationships, finances, career, health and legal situations. Crossroads understands the expansive impact that these situations can have and offers gender-responsive addiction and behavioral health treatment programs to help clients remember who they wanted to be and get their life back on track.
No two clients’ situations are the same; therefore, Crossroads provides not only intensive residential programs and outpatient programs but also services geared toward expectant and new mothers. Men and women can find the individualized care they are looking for to help them continue moving forward in their recovery and establish healthier routines and lifestyles. Comprehensive care and ongoing support are essential elements of recovery and we strive to provide a safe, non-judgmental environment for healing and personal growth.
Back Cove Women’s Residential Program
Set in the beautiful and serene surroundings of Maine, the Back Cove Women’s Residential Program is the ideal location for recovery for women struggling with addiction and/or mental health disorders. It is a program exclusively for women and addresses the unique challenges that they face in recovery such as self-esteem, relationships, sexuality and spirituality. Treatment is based on a relational model that uses gender-responsive and trauma-informed approaches to care. Women engage in a variety of individual and group counseling sessions, holistic therapies including yoga, equine therapy, acupuncture and family programming. It is a 30-day program that helps women build a strong foundation for long-term recovery.
Co-Occurring Eating Disorders and Addiction Treatment
Both addiction and eating disorders are complex conditions; there is not a single cause or solution. This can make it challenging for women and their families to find effective ways of managing these issues and begin a healthy path to recovery. Engaging in a fully integrated treatment program that addresses the intricacies of how these disorders impact one another and allows women to explore the challenges they face and find what works best for their needs is essential.
Crossroads offers a 30-day residential treatment program that immerses women in a safe, structured, therapeutic environment to begin their recovery from eating disorders and addiction. It is an intimate 8-bed program that is ideal for women who need the comfort and support of a structured program that has professional onsite staff 24/7.
Children and Mothers Residential Program
Family is often very important to women and they worry about their children when making the choice to enter addiction treatment. Crossroads’ Children and Mothers Residential Program is the only licensed program in Maine that allows mothers to remain with their children (age 5 and under) while participating in treatment programs. Women who are pregnant or working on family reunification are also involved in this program. Not only are topics of addiction addressed, but also parenting skills are enhanced, family relationships are developed and support is provided with future planning, securing housing, medical care and other essentials for ongoing recovery.
Gender-Responsive Outpatient Programs for Men and Women
An integral part of addiction and behavioral health treatment also includes gender-responsive outpatient programs for men and women. This provides continued support, education, and counseling to help clients maintain positive routines and behaviors to prevent relapse. Comprehensive assessments are conducted to help men and women identify underlying issues contributing to their addiction or mental health disorder and then create an individualized treatment plan. There are also individual, group, couples and family counseling sessions to address a wide range of challenges clients face. For women, there is also an intensive outpatient program 3, 4 or 5 days a week. Both men and women can take part in the Driver Education and Evaluation Program (DEEP) if they are cited for operating under the influence (OUI).
Current and Upcoming Therapy Groups
Crossroads offers a variety of therapy groups. Some are held at specific times throughout the year while others are ongoing. Women can participate in an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) from three to five days per week for three hours per day. Everyone is invited to attend “The Effects of Addiction on Friends and Family” four-week educational series which focuses on the basics of addiction; the effects of addiction on the user, family, and friends; relapse and recovery; and the dos and don’ts.
