Crossroads Program

“Crossroads” offers intensive behavioral health treatment to school-age (ages 5-18) youth that have psychiatric and substance use difficulties that require more intensive treatment than weekly therapy or intensive outpatient. For those youth that do not require inpatient treatment, it serves as a step-down program to provide a smoother transition back into the community. Our team of professionals include Licensed Therapists and Registered Nurses. Family participation is required.

All Paths Include:

  • A personalized treatment plan designed by a multidisciplinary team of experts including nursing and child/adolescent psychiatrists
  • Individual sessions with licensed therapists
  • Mandated family therapy sessions
  • Group therapy sessions including art, activity and music
  • School-based academic services through Jefferson County Public Schools (Peace Academy)
  • Point-Based Behavioral Incentive System
