Remember Who You Wanted To Be

Crossroads provides gender-responsive addiction and behavioral health treatment services that allow clients to recover in a safe, supportive environment and develop the skills and strategies necessary to support long-term recovery. Our programs also address the needs of family members to build healthy families and help everyone deal with the impact of substance use in a constructive way.


Set in the beautiful and serene surroundings of Maine, Crossroads offers three Residential Programs in a peaceful and safe environment for women in recovery from addiction, behavioral and mental health disorders. Our residential programs are exclusively for women and addresses the unique challenges they face in recovery such as self-esteem, relationships, sexuality and spirituality.


Recovery from a substance use disorder is not a one-and-done, rather an ongoing process. Engaging in gender-responsive behavioral health outpatient treatment services can support men and women in maintaining their recovery. At Crossroads, we help clients continue to develop essential skills and coping methods to remain substance-free and create a healthier lifestyle.


Before any type of treatment can begin, it is important to understand the challenges the client is facing. Licensed professional counselors conduct comprehensive assessments for substance use and mental health issues to determine the appropriate level of care. At Crossroads, the client and clinician work together to develop an individualized treatment plan that addresses specific needs and goals.

"My experience was life-changing. I learned to accept my alcoholism as a disease and something that I cannot change. I learned to not feel shame and to have self-compassion. I also learned coping skills to help fight off the cravings and triggers. I am using these every day now.”

“I would tell them to do it. I was a little leery at first of the strict scheduling and the homework but these are the tools that I still use today. I really learned how to manage my time and my life in a more constructive way.”

— Advice to others considering treatment at Crossroads

“I had been through a lot by the time I reached admissions at Crossroads. They were very helpful with contacting my insurance and taking care of the details. I asked a lot of questions and they answered honestly. I explained that I have a back injury and food allergies and they were able to accommodate me. I was given a room on the first floor and they made sure that there was plenty of food."

— Admissions process experience

“The staff was very supportive. I was in rough shape when I got to Crossroads. I was depressed and ashamed of myself and I didn’t know if I could stop drinking. The staff was very warm and welcoming. They gave me encouragement and good advice. They were easy to talk to and many were in recovery themselves. The psychiatrist was knowledgeable about the effects of alcohol and gave me insight into my disease.”

— Experience with residential staff

“I’m glad that I came here. It is a good step between inpatient and living independently without addiction. The group is fairly small and we all support each other. I’m still learning more about my addiction and how not to succumb to it. The more I learn the better equipped I feel to not relapse.”

“The all women setting makes it easier to open up about my alcoholism.”

— IOP experience

“This is my third week in the IOP at Crossroads and I have thoroughly enjoyed each and every day. The groups have been incredibly informative, skills-based, process-oriented and filled with relapse prevention strategies. The group uses process orientation to discuss needs that are individually tailored. The facilitators are compassionate, knowledgeable and very accessible. My time has been extremely well spent! Thank you!”

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.
