The Crossroads Program

The Crossroads Program


The Crossroads Program is a drug and alcohol rehab center exclusively for teens and young adults. One of several Crossroads locations in Missouri, the facility in Columbia offers intensive outpatient (IOP) programming, individual counseling sessions, support groups, and aftercare.


Treatment programming at Crossroads is founded on the center’s “Enthusiastic Approach to recovery,” one guides youth and young adults away from harmful substances by teaching them a healthier, alternative way of living. Serving teens, aged 13 to 17, and young adults between the ages of 18 and 25, are several outpatient treatment options.

At the most intensive level of care is the IOP. Normally completed in six to 12 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 also act as a step-down option in preventing relapse after inpatient care. Certified addictions counselors are also available to provide presentations for large audiences in schools, churches, and centers throughout the state.


Programs and services are facilitated by a team of certified reciprocal substance abuse counselors and a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW).

According to the center’s website, IOP is a “cost effective treatment option” and individual counseling sessions are “fee-based.”
