A driving force behind the programs at Crossroads, a behavioral health and addiction treatment center in Maine since 1974, is our passion for helping women and men remember who they wanted to be. Substance use disorders can derail lives and cause people to lose sight of who they are and where they want to go. However, at Crossroads, we are dedicated to helping our clients get that fresh start they need. They will develop the tools and skills necessary to overcome behavioral health and substance use disorders. We offer gender-responsive treatment programs that help our clients find their way to greater clarity and once again have purpose and goals as they move forward and pursue recovery from substance use and mental health disorders.
Treating Substance Use and Mental Health Disorders
Treatment is not one size fits all. Since men and women often face different challenges when it comes to treating substance use and mental health disorders, Crossroads offers gender-responsive treatment programs. We tailor our treatment models to women and men’s individual needs. From depression and anxiety to post-traumatic stress disorder and other mental health conditions, these issues can affect substance use and the ability of clients to overcome obstacles. Part of recovery involves positive thinking, self-motivation, and confidence. These all stem from addressing mental health concerns and recognizing how they affect treatment and recovery.
Co-Occurring Treatment Programs for Women & Men
Oftentimes substance use disorders and mental health disorders go hand-in-hand. It is imperative to treat these two conditions simultaneously due to their interrelated nature, which is the basis for co-occurring treatment programs, also known as dual diagnosis, for men and women. Each affects the other, so it is essential that clients understand the impact of co-occurring disorders and how to make positive changes in their life to promote lifelong recovery. As clients progress in their recovery, they are able to develop the strategies and tools that work best for their individual situation. Dual diagnosis treatment programs combine addiction treatment, counseling, holistic therapy, and other activities to facilitate more comprehensive care.
