Center of HOPE Treatment Center

Crossroads has been providing outpatient Medication-Assisted Treatment for over 10 years to people suffering from dependence to heroin, pain medication, or other opiates. We understand that you may have work, family, or other responsibilities that make the realities of your addiction that much more serious. This realization can make attending typical forms of treatment seem out of reach. MAT has proven to be the solution to this dilemma for many patients who have been successful in treatment.

Eating Disorders

National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA)

Eating disorders are widely misunderstood illnesses and support options are often inaccessible. As a result, too many people are left feeling helpless, hopeless, and frightened. Through our programs and services, NEDA raises awareness, builds communities of support and recovery, funds research, and puts life-saving resources into the hands of those in need. NEDA supports individuals and families affected by eating disorders, and serves as a catalyst for prevention, cures and access to quality care.
