With Halloween behind us, we now find ourselves heading straight into the holiday season. This month, we hope you will consider placing an order for a holiday recovery wreath. We are also sharing the recent fundraising successes of our 2nd annual Crossroads Gala and Alex and Ani event, both held in Portland. All of these efforts help to raise money for our scholarship fund to assist clients who cannot afford treatment. Finally, we're welcoming Jim Gorham, LCPC to our outpatient clinical team.

A quick program note for those clients who are interested in our Back Cove Residential Program in Portland: Crossroads is happy to announce even more convenient ways to pay for treatment. The residential program is now in-network with Anthem, Maine Community Health and Cigna. In addition, clients can apply for a loan from American HealthCare Lending (AHL). AHL offers two options via a simple online application.
