Crossroads News: Residential Intakes Move and CAMP Completion Rate



If you aren't a part of our community on Facebook, you may have missed the following announcements. 


Residential Intakes Have Moved

In order to streamline our intake process for residential clients, we have moved our intake department to our Scarborough location at 71 US Route One, Suite E2. 

We are in the process of updating our website and materials to reflect this change. 


Admissions will remain at the residences themselves. If you have any questions, give us a call at 207.773.9931. 


CAMP for Pregnant and Postpartum Women Completion Rate

We're excited and proud to report that the treatment completion rate for our grant-funded program for pregnant and postpartum women is at 86.7%. Our Children And Mothers Program has always done great work, but our recent enhancements, including case management and increased family involvement, is really making a positive impact. 
Kudos to all the staff at the Boulton Center for Women and Children in Windham and at the halfway house in Portland!
