November 2013    

We are moving quickly into the holiday season, which means it's time to start thinking about holiday decorating! How about adorning your home with a Crossroads Recovery Wreath? We also have some important updates to our residential programs to note. 

With Thanksgiving next week, we can't forget to thank all of you for your continued support of Crossroads' work. Our final numbers are in for the Masquerade Ball fundraiser, and we made over $13,000! This number is much larger than what we anticipated, being the inaugural year for the event. Thank you to everyone who came, donated and bid on our fabulous auction items!

firstarticleImportant Residential Program Updates for 2014

At the start of 2014, there will be some significant changes to Crossroads residential programs. Due to a loss in funding from the state of Maine, we will no longer be able to run our long-term halfway house program. While we are certainly disappointed in this outcome, we have moved quickly to develop a more sustainable residential program that will not rely on state funds. 

In addition, our Residential Rehabilitation program at the Boulton Center for Women and Children will focus on treatment for women who are pregnant, have children ages 5 and under, or are working on family reunification. 

Rest assured that we are working with our current clients to help them with their next steps once these changes occur. Some will remain in Crossroads rich programming, while others will continue on with their recovery journey in the community.

These changes in no way will affect the quality of care Crossroads provides for its clients. In fact, we think it will improve. In the upcoming months, you will start to hear more about the new Back Cove Residential Program which will open in early 2014.

The Back Cove Residential Program will offer holistic treatment for women in a beautiful Maine setting. In addition to gender-responsive addiction and emotional health treatment, our holistic approach will include yoga, equine therapy, acupuncture and other services. The Back Cove Residential Program, a 30 day treatment program, will serve as a premier recovery setting for women from all over the country.


We remain dedicated to our mission to provide gender-responsive addiction and behavioral health treatment services in a safe and respectful environment so individuals and families can lead healthy lives.  

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Shannon Trainor, Crossroads Executive Director, at 207.773.9931 or via email.

  New Beginnings at Crossroads



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." ~ Warren Bennis

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...Read More
