Crossroads on Perspectives

Teresa Bendokas-Heinfeld, Crossroads’ system administrator, was recently a guest on the radio show Perspectives.

The local radio show is dedicated to featuring Maine-based non-profit organizations.

On the show, Teresa talks to host Sandra Gilly about Crossroads’ gender-responsive addiction treatment and its concentration on the ways in which men and women get better differently.

She talks about how Crossroads is continuously growing and meeting the needs of community.

She talks of how women building strong relationships with other women and their community helps them find recovery.

She talks about Crossroads programming and funding and how the agency was recently awarded a federal SAMHSA grant to enhance its Children And Mothers Program (CAMP).

She talks of the feeling of comfort and home clients get when they walk into a Crossroads treatment facility.

She talks of the follow up after treatment is complete and how Crossroads offers a continuum of care and can really treat a person across the lifespan.
