- Poor communication or slurring
- Weakened immune system
- Respiratory or heart issues

Heroin Addiction Treatment
There are choices when it comes to how you receive your treatment for heroin addiction. As a member of our program, everyone gets a treatment plan customized to their needs. Our team is here to work with you and make you feel comfortable and supported during your recovery. At Crossroads, we offer the following options.
Residential Treatment – Back Cove
The Back Cove women’s residential program at Crossroads is an evidence-based model with trauma-informed and gender-responsive addiction treatment programs. It is an inpatient program with no distraction from the outside world so that the focus can be on you and your recovery. This safe, structured environment provides a solid foundation for healing and sobriety. Back Cove is a women’s treatment center designed to meet the needs of women and support them in each step of their recovery.
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
Crossroads’ IOP is a structured group therapy option that provides the flexibility to receive the treatment you need but with the flexibility of balancing the responsibilities of your day-to-day life. Plus, you can sleep in your bed at night. Treatment is generally 3 to 5 days weekly for 3 hours a day on-site at our treatment facility.
Rehab for Women with Children (CAMP)
Crossroads offers an alternative to traditional inpatient or outpatient treatment programs. The program creates a residential solution for women and their children called CAMP. The program delivers a homelike setting where women (or pregnant women) and their young children can stay together during treatment. Elements of the program include counseling, family therapy, and suggested aftercare to prevent relapsing.
Dual Diagnosis Program
A dual diagnosis treatment can be highly beneficial for individuals dealing with a substance use disorder and a co-occurring eating disorder or mental health issue. The program creates a way to treat both disorders alongside each other for a more successful recovery outcome. Clients can build a more positive attitude, develop healthy habits, and work on coping skills they will need for long-term recovery.
