Crossroads - Children and Mothers Residential Program (CAMP) Philosophy

Crossroads believes that in order for substance abuse and mental health treatment to be successful, it must be tailored to fit the unique needs of each individual. To this end, the drug and alcohol rehab offers gender-responsive care that embraces the differences in women and men’s addiction experiences, and targets key issues in recovery such as self-image, relationships, sexuality, and spirituality. The facility allows clients to begin the journey of recovery and self-discovery in a compassionate, secure, and non-judgmental environment with cutting edge treatment modalities and a holistic approach.

Areas of Specialization

  • Out Patient
    Outpatient treatment describes all addiction treatment that is not residential. Patients live at home while undergoing rehab.

  • Residential Treatment
    Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Crossroads offers both a 30-day and 60-day residential program.

ABOUT CROSSROADS — CHILDREN & MOTHER’S RESIDENTIAL PROGRAM (CAMP)

Founded in 1974 as a treatment center for women with alcoholism, Crossroads now offers outpatient services for men and women, as well as residential treatment for women, through four locations in Maine. The facility in rural Windham, Maine offers residential treatment for pregnant women and mothers of children under the age of five with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. It’s the only licensed residential treatment facility in Maine where children can stay with their mothers while they receive treatment.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

The treatment program lasts 60 days and includes childcare so women can focus on recovery activities. It’s trauma-informed and gender-responsive, using “A Woman’s Way through the Twelve Steps” curriculum along with Seeking Safety. Relapse prevention therapy and motivational interviewing (MI) are also used, along with weekly individual and daily group counseling, plus family therapy. Group session topics include healthy relationships, motherhood, and living sober.

And since the women who attend this center are looking to create a healthy environment for themselves and their children, case management services are provided, to liaise with medical, housing, education and other community providers. In addition, women are encouraged to establish healthy habits and take parenting classes. Staff are available to assess children for any medical and/or developmental needs.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

Senior staff members include an osteopathic doctor and a doctor of psychology. A video posted on the facility’s website indicates that staff also includes a licensed professional counselor, a licensed alcohol and drug counselor, and a licensed social worker.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

On-site licensed daycare is provided for children six weeks and older. A video posted on the facility’s website shows comfortable, family-style living. Three alumni surveyed by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing all gave five stars for the facility’s accommodations and cleanliness.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

Three alumni reviewers surveyed by Rehabs.com gave very positive feedback. All gave four- and five-star ratings for most metrics, including staff support, level of staff training, holistic offerings, and the quality of group and individual counseling. In addition, they indicated they would recommend the facility and felt they left with the proper tools to maintain sobriety.

Alumni applauded the facility’s staff and commented on the structured program. Christine wrote, “I learned a lot of coping skills and tools so I didn't put my self back into a situation that I would regret. The staff there was a amazing.” K.T.G. told Rehabs.com: “The facility is a very structured environment with courses for every aspect of drug addiction, from understanding to coping.” Kathy echoed both comments by writing, “Staff was always there to assist with any concerns and offered a very structured environment. Very intense treatment and very structured.”

While a fourth alumni, Joy, wrote to Rehabs.com “Good structure, happy staff, great food and the clinicians made an effort to give clients a healthy environment,” she also felt staff were overworked and added, “Not sure about corporate, they seem to make strange decisions and not consider the people attending their program.”

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

A single loved one polled by Rehabs.com gave a lukewarm review. Though the anonymous reviewer gave four stars for family participation, they gave just two stars for exercise, leisure, and holistic options as well as counseling options and treatment for co-occurring disorders. The anonymous loved one wrote, “Strengths: location and for women. Weaknesses: amenities, comfort and privacy. There should be more space.”

WHAT STAFF SAY

While a former employee, Lisa, gave four-stars for staff experience and willingness to put patient’s interests first, she reported some concerns about this facility, writing, “I feel that some of the management is all about the blame game instead of learning from it. I feel that there is too much finger pointing and not enough non judgmental support.”

FINANCING

According to its website, Crossroads in in-network with many insurance companies. It also accepts self-payment, MaineCare (Medicaid), Medicare, and offers a scholarship program funded by donations.

They wouldn't take me because I'm transgender. This is one of the only womens places in maine. They said they'd help me find another place but they never did

Official Facility Response

If it wasn't for the staff I would have left early. Good structure, happy staff, great food and the clinicians made an effort to give clients a healthy environment. Clinician do everything and despite being overworked, they are always smiling. Not sure about corporate, they seem to make strange decisions and not consider the people attending their program.

This facility taught me the skill sets that I needed, and in conjunction with an IOP program in 2012, I finally got sober and have been since August 2012. The facility is a very structured environment with courses for every aspect of drug addiction, from understanding to coping.

The experience there I know opened the door for me to go in this direction, I learned a lot of coping skills and tools so I didn't put my self back into a situation that I would regret. The staff there was a amazing and eating healthy and exercising all helped to transform me from what I was living like to someone functioning in society clean and sober.
