May 2014    

This month's newsletter is all about celebrating treatment, recovery and community leaders. We are thankful for a successful Community Breakfast event, where we celebrated those who go above and beyond in the addiction prevention, treatment and recovery world. We're also inviting you to join us for an open house event at our new Back Cove Residential Program. Finally, please save the date for the Crossroads gala in October!

Have you given to the Crossroads 2014 Annual Giving Campaign yet? To those of you who have sent your gifts, we thank you! We are on our way to funding more scholarships for clients in need of treatment. Of course, it's never too late to make a gift. Please visit our secure online donation website or send your gift by mail to Crossroads, 71 U.S. Route One, Suite E, Scarborough, Maine 04074.

Thank you to those who attending our inaugural Community Awards Breakfast event on May 21, 2014 at the Embassy Suites in Portland. We had a packed room! 


The breakfast was made possible by our wonderful sponsors Lisa Howard DDS, MS, Andersen-Watkins Insurance, and NT&T. 


At the event, Crossroads honored those community members who have unselfishly committed themselves to heighten awareness, promote prevention or deliver treatment as an alternative to the pain of addiction to alcohol or others drugs.


Honorees included:

  • Kevin Mannix & Linda Rota, Community Leader Award
  • Dr. Michael Patnaude, Community Medical Award
  • Kenneth McCullough, Addictions Professional Award
  • Elizabeth Powell, Legal Professional Award
  • Steve Reynolds, Community Business Award
  • Dianne Nason, Unsung Hero Award 

Take a look at some of the photos from this event on the Crossroads Flickr page.


We look forward to seeing you at next year's community awards breakfast.
