Programs & Services
Residential Treatment Programs
- Crisis Stabilization and 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 OpenTreatment program addresses a wide variety of emotional and behavioral issues for youth who are able to manage in a less-secure 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. Transitional Living clients reside on the Crossroad campus.
- Crossroad’s Independent Living program is available to young people who have completed Crossroad’s Transitional Living program or another transitional living program. Independent Living clients live in scattered-site apartments in the community while receiving full access to Crossroad services and staff.
Community-Based and Outpatient Treatment Programs
- The Crossroad Day 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 licensed clinicians with years of experience in working with emotionally and behaviorally challenged children. Our counseling services are available to any child or family who willingly participates in sessions and can benefit from treatment. Crossroad accepts Medicaid and payment from many private insurance companies.
- Community Alternatives to Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facilities - Crossroad is the Allen County Access Site for this federally funded grant program. Crossroad is also a CA-PRTF service provider - dramatically adding to our continuum of care for children and families in need.
- Crossroad provides coordination of treatment in Foster Homes through contracts with local foster care agencies. For youth leaving Crossroad’s residential programs, this allows for continuity of care during the transition back into the community.
Special Services for Special Kids
- Treatment for younger populations - We provide treatment for children as young as age 6 (and to age 21).
- Treatment for medically fragile children - The medically fragile population includes, but is not limited to, children with seizure disorders, cystic fibrosis, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, diabetes, sickle cell anemia, hemophilia, cancer and shunt placement.
- Treatment for developmentally disabled youth - Crossroad has a strong commitment and belief that programming should be modified to meet the individual needs of all clients. Youth with special needs are mainstreamed and incorporated into campus-wide residential programming, and treatment modalities are individualized at a developmentally appropriate level.
- Specialized Group Therapy - Our therapists lead weekly groups addressing topics such as fire setting, eating disorders, physical and sexual abuse, bereavement, grief and loss, dissociation and childhood disorders best treated with play therapy. Groups are offered for both our residential and outpatient clients. Many of these groups were developed at referral source request!
