Treatment Center Setting
Behavioral Crossroads, LLC Philosophy
Our mission is to assist individuals who have a severe and persistent mental illness and substance use disorders with developing the skills and supports necessary to live, learn, or work in the community of their choice with the least amount of intervention from the mental health, substance abuse or justice involved systems. Behavioral Crossroads Recovery is one of the leading New Jersey behavioral health centers offering outpatient services for addiction for adults.
Areas of Specialization
Though not all rehab facilities offer “medical detoxification,” all people with an addiction to drugs or alcohol will experience intense physical and emotional changes and discomfort as their bodies react to withdrawal of the addictive substance. Many people use the term “detox” to refer to the period of time (ranging from a few days to a week) when the body is reacting to an addict’s decision to stop using.
Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
Outpatient treatment describes all addiction treatment that is not residential. Patients live at home while undergoing rehab.
The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
You know when you come in somewhere new your antenna's up, you kind of like, feel around. Then I started seeing how the counselors were moving and I saw their sincerity....I said alright, this is where I belong and I've been here ever since. I share a lot, a whole lot because I have a lot to give. From the experiences I lived from being a kid, a street kid in the past. So I see different people here, different people talk regardless of race or color........but it also helps me as well, because my ears are close to my mouth, so if I’m speaking to you I’m talking to myself first. I hear myself first, so that means I have to make myself more accountable..... Crossroads was good to me, what tickles me is the name Crossroads, because that’s what I was in… I was in the crossroad of remaining a criminal and a drug addict, or do I try to reach back to being a civilized human being...…and like I tell most people and I tell myself, Crossroads is not a cure all, but it’s a step in the right direction to help you start pulling some layers off to get to healing
My experience at Crossroads, was very positive. When I first came here I knew nothing about recovery, I had been an addict for half of my life, 15 years. So when I first came here, I was at the end of my rope, didn't know where to go and I had an amazing counselor that just, for seven months she stood by my side. I wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for her.

ABOUT BEHAVIORAL CROSSROADS, LLC
In the town of Turnersville, N.J., near Atlantic City, Behavioral Crossroads, LLC provides outpatient treatment for adults struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. Treatment for substance abuse is offered at a variety of levels, including a general outpatient program (GOP), intensive outpatient program (IOP), and partial hospitalization (PHP). If necessary, detox services are provided on-site.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Time spent in ambulatory detox varies from person to person, but clients should expect to generally spend five or more days focused on managing their withdrawal symptoms before beginning treatment. Following detox, clients enter the level of outpatient treatment that best suits their needs. GOP is the least time-intensive option; clients spend up to three hours a week in treatment. Weekly hours increase to 10 with IOP, and those in enrolled in PHP spend five to six hours a day on-site. A day treatment program is also available specifically for mental health disorders.
Depending on the program, clients experience a mix of individual and group therapy as well as psychiatric evaluations, medication monitoring, and music or art therapy. Relapse prevention, spirituality, and life skills education are also key program components. Additionally, Behavioral Crossroads, LLC offers a family education program. Clients who are on-site most of the day receive hot, catered lunches.
