Programs & Services
Residential Treatment Programs
- Diagnostic Evaluation is a comprehensive program for youth 6-21 years of age. Service duration and living unit (secure care or open treatment) will be based on the needs of the client and time necessary to complete a complete evaluation. Placing agents will receive an evaluation including a comprehensive psychosocial, psychological, psychiatric, and educational assessment. Recommendations for treatment and intervention options are provided.
- Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility - Outpatient therapy or acute, short-term hospitalization often is not enough to assist youth with severe and chronic mental health problems. Crossroad’s Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility (PRTF) provides intensive residential treatment to meet the needs of these youth and their families. The goal is that children will successfully return to their homes and communities within the shortest possible time.
- Secure Care units are provided for youth with high security needs due to behaviors that are a danger to themselves and/or others. The time-delayed egress locks utilized on these units are in full compliance with the requirements of the Juvenile Justice Delinquency Protection Act and Indiana’s Youth Law team.
- The Open Treatment program addresses a wide variety of emotional and behavioral issues for youth who are able to manage in a less restrictive, open environment.
- Transitional Living is available for youth, aged 16 or older, to focus on education and job skills, as well as skills for community living.
Community-Based and Outpatient Treatment Services
- The Crossroad Alternative Education program is offered for children who require educational services that cannot be provided in the public school setting. Both half-day and whole-day options are available and our Educational Liaison ensures coordination of services with the student’s home school corporation. Clients may also receive therapy services during their day on campus. Students attending Crossroad School receive credits through Fort Wayne Community Schools.
- Crossroad’s Outpatient Child and Family Counseling Services focus on providing treatment tailored to client and family needs and strengths. All treatment is provided by Masters Level clinicians experienced in providing therapy for people struggling with the confusing emotional issues of life. Our counseling services are available to any child, adult, couple, or family who willingly participates in sessions and can benefit from treatment. Crossroad accepts self-payment, Medicaid, and payment from many private insurance companies.
- Children’s Mental Health Wraparound (CMHW) – Crossroad is the Allen County Access Center and provides services for this family-driven program for Medicaid-eligible children. This is a voluntary program with a goal of keeping children in their homes. A Wraparound Facilitator helps each family develop a plan, a support team, and services. Families choose their service providers from a list of qualified agencies and individuals.
- Children’s Mental Health Initiative (CMHI) – Crossroad provides services for this program through a partnership between the Department of Child Services and the Division of Mental Health and Addictions. It is designed to provide wraparound services for families who do not qualify for services under other criteria. This service is for children at least age six and under age 18.
- Money Follows the Person – Psychiatric Rehabilitation Treatment Facility (MFP-PRTF) – Crossroad provides these wraparound services for Medicaid-eligible children who are returning home from a stay at a Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility or state hospital.
Crossroad is contracted with the Indiana Department of Child Services to provide a variety of Home- and Community-Based services, including Comprehensive Services, Home-Based Family-Centered Casework Services, Home-Based Family-Centered Therapy Services, Individual/Family Counseling, Diagnostic & Evaluation Services, Domestic Violence Victim Services, Resource Family Support Services, Day Treatment, and Transition from Restrictive Placement.
