Happy Holidays! We are happy to share with you a story of recovery in this last newsletter of 2014. In addition, we're sharing news that our recovery wreaths sales were a huge success and some festive photos from recent Crossroads holiday gatherings. 

If you are struggling during the holiday season, please read these holiday tips for those living in recovery or these suggestions for beating the blues and staying sober during the holiday season.

A quick program reminder: Crossroads is now offering a women's Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) group in Biddeford. This gender-responsive therapy group meets out of the Community Partnerships for the Protection of Children (CPPC) office in Biddeford. The sessions run Monday - Friday from 9:00am - 12:00pm. Those interested in this IOP can schedule an intake appointment through our office in Scarborough. For more information or to set up an intake, please call 207.773.9931

ArticleOneAlex's Story of Recovery

As 2014 comes to a close, we thought it would be fitting to share a story of recovery from one of our clients. 


The holidays can be a stressful time, and some families may even be struggling with a loved one who might benefit from treatment. We hope Alex's story may provide some inspiration for you, no matter your situation.

ArticleThreeThank You for Your Wreaths for Recovery Purchase!

A heartfelt thank you goes to all of those who purchased our beautiful Maine balsam recovery wreaths this holiday season. We hope you are displaying your wreaths with pride!


As you know, the proceeds from this year's sales benefited the Barbara L. Dacri Scholarship Fund. This fund provides financial assistance to qualified clients who cannot afford the full cost of treatment services.


With your support, we were able to sell 257 wreaths to 110 donors, allowing us to raise over $3,500 for our scholarship fund!

ArticleTwoCrossroads Alumni Association (CAA) and Staff Celebrate the Holidays

'Tis the season to celebrate the holidays with fun, fellowship and food! 


The Crossroads Alumni Association (CAA) gathered together at a member's house for a fun end of year party.




Crossroads staff from all locations came together at Joseph's By the Sea in Old Orchard Beach to celebrate each other and the agency's accomplishments in 2014. (You can view more staff holiday photos on our Flickr page.)





We hope you have a wonderful holiday season however you may be celebrating!
