FAQs for Back Cove Women’s Residential Program

The following are questions we frequently receive from clients entering into the Back Cove Women’s Residential Program. More general Crossroads questions are answered in our FAQs sections for clients, family members and referrers.

Can I bring my electronic devices with me to treatment?

Cell phones, laptops, cameras, CD players and tablets are not allowed into treatment. We want you to stay focused on your recovery and engage in many of the treatment literature and DVDs that are available to you. MP3 players with no camera or internet connection are allowed in treatment.

Will I have contact with my family?

Upon entering treatment there is a 5-day orientation period that you will not have any contact with family or friends. This time is used to help you get acclimated to the program. Emotions are often high right after admission and this allows for an emotional purging period for the client. Your counselor can work with you on the transition if you have younger children. After the 5 days, you will work with your counselor to identify family members you want to have participate in family education days.
