Youth Recovery Program

Promoting Resiliency & Recovery for a Child’s Success In Life

Crossroads’ Youth Program utilizes a wide range of strategies to promote healthy growth and development for children. We help keep families together and work with children to develop life skills. Our goal is to help children develop resiliency and the skills for success in life.



Services provided through our Psychiatric Rehabilitation Program for Youth include both individual mentoring and skill building groups which meet at our program locations after school and during school vacations.

In a supportive and safe environment, we focus on assisting with and strengthening:

  • Self-awareness
  • Perseverance
  • Emotional stability
  • Support systems
  • Coping and problem solving skills
  • Positive Behaviors

Structured activities and groups promote individual success along with team cooperation and encourage emotional, developmental and physical growth. Therapeutic groups target specific needs of a group of youth.

Groups are focused on:

  • Improving self-esteem
  • Improving socialization skills
  • Developing coping and problem solving skills
  • Improving study habits and organizational skills
  • Effective communication
