ABOUT CROSSROADS MISSION

Crossroads Mission, founded in 1959, provides faith-based social support services in Yuma, Ariz. This Christian, nonprofit organization operates several emergency shelters, vocational training programs, short-term stabilization and long-term residential rehab facilities for adults seeking treatment for addiction and substance abuse. Treatment is a mix of individualized planning, Christian principles, and the 12-Steps. Crossroads Mission is one of 178 (about 50 percent) of Arizona facilities currently operating as a non-profit.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Crossroads offers stabilization service for those struggling with drugs or alcohol addiction. This facility is opened open 24/7. A nurse practitioner checks in each client upon entry into the program. Stabilization takes 10 days for during which time clients complete a Chemical Institution Withdrawal Assessment, observation, screening, and receive case management services. After stabilization, the staff arranged further treatment in the community or at Crossroads Mission’s New Life Recovery Program.

The program utilizes the 12-steps of recovery, as do 221 other Arizona facilities. Crossroads also places an emphasis on faith as means to recover from addiction. New Life residents participate in group and individual counseling, peer support practices, and case management. According to the facility’s website, residents also take part in “spiritual enrichment activities.” Crossroads also prioritizes holistic treatment through other programs at the mission such as job preparation and family support.

Spouses and children as well as other loved ones are encouraged to participate in counseling and other activities during the residents’ recovery process.

  • Lots of staff to listen and help. It's a very structured program which was exactly what I needed 15 years ago when I went through. If you don't believe in Jesus Christ you might feel uncomfortable. When I went through 15 years ago, it was very structured. Kind of like our own little city. We each had jobs to do, timed meal times, scheduled meetings and councilling. Always lots of people to talk to and confide in.

  • Very good 12 step program. However, my son did not feel safe there. Son became suicidal because of his fears. He had to be hospitalized and moved to different rehab.
