Comprehensive Assessments for Clients
Before true healing can begin, it is important to understand what challenges each woman is facing. Through comprehensive assessments for substance use and mental health disorders, proper residential women’s treatment plans can be designed for optimal care. These assessments are performed by a licensed professional counselor. If medication is involved, a medication management evaluation is also available. Since no two women are the same, initial assessments and evaluations are a key part in creating an individualized approach to meet each client’s needs.
What Sets Crossroads Apart in Residential Treatment for Eating Disorders
Instead of treating each condition separately – which can actually make some symptoms worse and increase risk of relapse – Crossroads provides comprehensive care addressing both areas of need while also promoting improved mental health. This is one of the biggest factors that sets the facility apart: it is not strictly an eating disorder rehab or an addiction rehab, it’s both, and it’s one of the only facilities of its kind in the state of Maine and in New England as a whole.
The program is a 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 10-bed program that is ideal for women who need the comfort and support of a structured program that has professional onsite staff 24/7.
Individualized Therapy and Counseling
Recovery is about more than just physically being substance-free or engaging in eating disorder behaviors. It also involves changing your thought processes and establishing healthier routines and ways of coping with challenging situations. Through individualized therapy and counseling, women at the residential women’s treatment center can work through obstacles they are struggling with, including co-occurring substance use and mental health issues. At a dual diagnosis treatment center in Portland, Maine, women have the opportunity to delve more deeply into subjects that evolve during group sessions or individual matters that need more attention. The clinical team includes master’s level clinicians with specialized training in the treatment of women struggling with addiction and eating disorders as well as trauma-informed care. Together the client and clinician create a personalized treatment plan.
