Crossroads For Women Overview

Crossroads for Women is, as the name suggests, a treatment location that only serves female patients. The company was established to provide high-quality recovery services to women in the local area that may be going through a difficult time due to the development of addictions, as well as those who are experiencing problems with their mental health alongside a substance abuse disorder.
The company has been serving female patients in the Albuquerque region since 1997 and was originally founded by an attorney who wanted to change the way people looked at homeless women in the area.
Crossroads For Women has developed a number of treatment programs over the years in order to support women with addictions in the local area, and are now also able to help those women who are mothers, as some of their sober living housing projects can accommodate children along with their mothers. In addition to the sober living programs, the company has also developed outpatient treatment programs, along with life skill services that help equip women with the skills they need to succeed in life.

Crossroads For Women Housing

There are two different facilities where women can be provided access to housing and accommodation while they are in recovery. The specific house that the patient will be provided access to depend on the findings of their facility’s initial assessment of the patient’s condition. The main Crossroads house can accommodate up to 30 female patients at a time and also welcomes children to come and stay with their mothers during the recovery phase. The Maya’s Place house is a much smaller facility that can provide accommodation for up to 12 female patients at a time. Women are provided access to relatively small rooms and may sometimes be required to share rooms with other female patients.
