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.

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.
The facility works with many sober living homes and can recommend treatment in one if necessary.
