Outpatient Treatment Center

Crossroads offers an outpatient treatment center for men and women in any stage of life.

Outpatient Treatment Center for Eating Disorders and Mental Health

Recovery from an eating disorder is not a simple task. Engaging in outpatient mental health treatment services in Portland, Maine can support men and women and help them recover. They can continue to build life skills and important coping methods to create a healthy, happy lifestyle. We use gender-responsive models, which are useful in that women do not always have the same struggles as men do. Here, they are engaged in a program that fits their unique needs. They will also have counseling with people of the same gender, which creates a safer and more comfortable environment where they can focus on restoration.

Comprehensive Assessments for All Clients

Before any type of outpatient treatment can begin, it is vital to understand what the client is dealing with. Clients will meet on their own at the outpatient addiction treatment center with a licensed counselor. The counselor has specific training and expertise in the areas of eating disorders and other mental health issues. The counselor handles an extensive evaluation for whatever issues you may be facing to determine the correct treatment. Once the assessment is complete, the client and counselor will create a unique regimen to address our client’s goals for the treatment. Our clients can target the problems that will impede on their recovery efforts most so that they can find ways to live a better life.

Eating Disorders Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

In addition to the residential treatment program, Crossroads also offers an intensive outpatient treatment program for eating disorders. This program at the outpatient treatment center is ideal for women who are medically stable but still require clinical support and structure to maintain the gains they have achieved in a higher level of care, such as a residential program. Groups meet Monday through Friday for three hours per day and work closely with master level clinicians and dietitians.

They engage in medical nutrition therapy as well as group sessions using DBT, CBT, and ACT approaches. They are able to continue building bonds with other women in the program in a safe space. Here, they can explore any obstacles they have faced and celebrate achievements.

To help women build their confidence and healthy relationship with food, they are asked to prepare and bring their own lunch to eat with the group. The clinician and dietician will review their meal and ensure that it aligns with their individual needs and meal plan, and they eat together and discuss ongoing recovery strategies.

Individual, Couples, Family and Group Counseling

Counseling is an integral part of recovery, and Crossroads offers individual, couples, family and group counseling sessions for men and women. Individual counseling allows clients to focus more closely on personal issues they may be struggling with that are not fully explored in a group setting. Couples and family counseling helps clients and their loved ones to work through the impact that substance use or mental health issues have had on their relationships. They can begin rebuilding trust, improving communication and moving forward in a healthier manner. Group counseling brings men or women together to share and learn from one another as they grow in their recovery and develop strategies to prevent relapse. Clients may engage in any number of groups depending on their needs.
