Specialty Services for Women
Crossroads offers enhanced, specialized treatment options for pregnant and postpartum women with substance use disorders. These services are designed to assist pregnant and/or postpartum women up to one year after delivery.
The goal of these comprehensive services is to engage at-risk women in our Crossroads addiction and recovery services, including short-term residential treatment (up to 30 days) as well as linking them to additional services in the community. Individuals receive the following services:
- Individualized intervention plan
- Substance abuse case management
- Comprehensive clinical assessment
- Nursing and physical assessments
- Individual and group therapy
- Wellness and nutrition services
- Parenting education
- Access to our board-certified addictionologist
- Linking to additional appropriate resources such as prenatal, postnatal and well-baby care
The focus of the program is to assist participants to have positive birth outcomes and to meet their individualized treatment goals for living a drug-free lifestyle and providing a drug-free environment for their children.
Eligible pregnant and postpartum women receive expedited admission into Crossroads Detox and/or the Crossroads Residential program. A designated substance abuse case manager works with each client to coordinate the referral, pre-admission and treatment process, and continues to work with the mother throughout aftercare and continuing care during the postpartum period. For opioid-dependent pregnant women, the Crossroads substance abuse case manager also assists with coordination of appropriate medication stabilization services.
