ABOUT THE CROSSROADS PROGRAM
The Crossroads Program is a drug and alcohol rehab center designed exclusively for teens and young adults. Just west of St. Louis, the facility in Chesterfield serves teens, aged 13 to 17, and young adults between the ages of 18 and 25.
Crossroads in Chesterfield offers several outpatient treatment options and is part of the 173 (67.3 percent) of Missouri treatment facilities to provide intensive outpatient (IOP) programming. It is one of the 51 (19.8 percent) facilities that offer treatment to adolescents. The center also provides individual counseling, support groups, and aftercare.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Treatment programming at Crossroads is founded on the center’s “Enthusiastic Sobriety” approach: keeping youth and young adults away from harmful substances by teaching them a healthier, alternative way of living.
At the most intensive level of care is the IOP. Normally completed in six to 14 weeks, the IOP follows a personalized recovery plan to address issues unique to each participant. Treatment goals include developing coping skills and a support network, gaining a working knowledge of the first four of the 12-Steps, and building and maintaining a sense of self-worth. The IOP also has separate support groups for young adults and parents. Successful graduates of IOP may receive up to eight weeks of aftercare at no additional charge.
Those requiring more private attention can opt for weekly or biweekly individual counseling sessions. Usually an hour in length, these outpatient sessions can serve as a step-down option in preventing relapse after residential care.
Certified addiction counselors are also available to provide presentations for large audiences in schools, churches, and centers in the St. Louis area.
Programs and services are facilitated by a team of certified reciprocal substance abuse counselors.

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
In the sole Rehabs.com survey response to date, an anonymous family member indicated that they wouldn’t recommend treatment to others and claimed that The Crossroads Program made them feel “inadequate.” While they did give four out of five stars for the staff’s level of training and experience and co-occurring treatment, they also left only one or two stars for the meals and nutrition, the exercise and leisure and holistic opportunities, and the counseling options available to clients.
The individual counseling sessions are fee-based.
