Crossroads, the largest residential substance abuse treatment program in Arizona, has introduced its first outpatient program, the Crossroads Aftercare Program (CAP). Continued care treatment options like CAP help individuals stay connected and focused by providing accountability, support, resources, and continued skill building to promote successful long-term recovery. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, CAP is currently being hosted virtually.
CAP is a co-ed program for individuals who have previously graduated from a residential treatment program or are seeking their first treatment but can’t commit to a residential program. The program offers evening and weekend group sessions and weekly or biweekly individual sessions for more personal support. The curriculum is focused on relapse prevention, skill building, and building a support network within the community.
“Recovery from substance use disorder does not end after someone completes residential treatment – maintaining sobriety in the following months can be really difficult,” says Riley Monahan, Outpatient Manager at Crossroads. “One of the biggest challenges for someone in early recovery is building a support system. Recovering individuals are encouraged to share about their experiences and feelings in early sobriety to help them avoid relapse. The Crossroads Aftercare Program introduces participants to others on a similar recovery journey and helps them build skills to keep it going.”
Since 1959, Crossroads has been continuously working to expand and improve their programs to meet the rapidly growing need for addiction services in Arizona. Those interested in information regarding any of Crossroads’ programs across the Valley can visit http://www.thecrossroadsinc.org.
