October 2013    

Fall always seems to be a time of change and new beginnings. For Crossroads, it has meant saying goodbye to a director and welcoming new, but familiar leadership. And, of course, celebrating with a fabulous Masquerade Ball!

We are happy to report that our first annual Masquerade Ball fundraising gala was a success. With your help, we were able to raise significantly more than our fundraising goal! Thank you for generously supporting the programs and services of Crossroads and the Barbara L Dacri Patient Scholarship Fund.

Being our first major fundraising event, we were delighted to gather many of Crossroads most committed supporters for an evening of sober fun, where all were comfortable to "come as they wanted to be remembered."


The supportive and generous crowd that came to the event and the thought that was put into the fabulous costumes blew us away.

Crossroads Director of Administration, Teresa Bendokas Heinfeld, wanted to be remembered as Rosie the Riveter and took home the prize for best costume!
Guests danced the night away to the music of Wavelength and celebrity emcee / Crossroads board of director, Tim Sample, hosted a wonderful live auction.

During the evening, board president Emily Semenchuk, executive director Shannon Trainor, and clinical director Dr. Mary Anne Roy addressed the crowd and officially launched the Crossroads Alumni Association (CAA). Many of the guests were still talking about Crossroads alumna and CAA Chair Susie McKenna's speech after the event.

If you are a Crossroads alum and would like to join the CAA, please contact Nikki Oliver at noliver@crossroadsme.org.

firstarticleSaying Farewell to Barbara Dacri

On October 2, 2013, Crossroads held a farewell party for outgoing executive director, Barbara Dacri. Crossroads board, staff, colleagues and friends celebrated and reminisced about Barbara's accomplishments as our leader for the past 12 years. All agreed that Crossroads would not be in the strong position it is in without Barbara's dedication to the clients of Crossroads.

Incoming executive director, Shannon Trainor, presented Barbara with a plaque from staff that included photos of Crossroads' 4 facilities and a quote on leadership.

"Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality."

In addition, the Crossroads board of directors announced the creation of the Barbara L Dacri Patient Scholarship Fund. This fund will provide financial assistance to qualified patients to help pay for treatment.

We wish Barbara good luck with her new endeavor, Abode of the Kennebunks, which will open on November 1st!

 Amber's Story of Recovery


Lori Martin, LSW is a Project Coordinator/Case Manager at Crossroads. She recently sat down with Amber to talk about treatment at Crossroads in the Pregnant and Postpartum Residential Grant Program and how it has changed her life. The following is Amber's story of recovery, as told by Lori.


Amber heard about Crossroads from her mother. Her mother felt it would be a good place for her to go to work on her sobriety and become a healthy parent. Amber came to Crossroads with her 4-month-old daughter and successfully completed the 60-day Pregnant and Postpartum Residential Grant Program (PPRG) funded through Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration (SAMHSA).


Amber struggled when she first came into the program. Living with 14 other females, following program rules and being newly sober was overwhelming.
