Crossroads Teaming Up With The Opportunity Alliance for Medication Management Services

Opportunity Alliance logo 

Crossroads is excited to announce a new collaborative relationship with The Opportunity Alliance to provide medication management services as an extension of our existing outpatients services. 


Crossroads' assistant clinical director, Mary Anne Roy, Psy.D, CCS says, "We have started collaborating with The Opportunity Alliance in the past month and feel very positive about this new partnership. They are able to provide medication management to our clients and can typically schedule our clients for an appointment within three business days."


In addition, The Opportunity Alliance provides case management services, which many of Crossroads' client are in need of. 


As part of this new partnership, The Opportunity Alliance has expressed a need for their medication management clients to be followed in either individual treatment or intensive outpatient treatment. Crossroads has already started receiving referrals from them and looks forward to further collaboration.  


While Crossroads does not currently offer medication management, we do pride ourselves on our commitment and strong efforts to coordinate treatment with other providers to ensure that our clients are receiving optimal care.


For more information on these medication management services, please call 207.773.9931.
