Crossroads Community Youth Home is a state licensed co-ed residential program, committed to providing a quality, broad-based behavior management system of care for the community's socially, emotionally and behaviorally at-risk youth. Crossroads offers a structured, home-style environment as part of a community-based continuum of care, and collaborates with other service agencies. The youth reside in the group home for an average of six months) while attending public school and staying in close contact with home, family, and friends. The purpose of the program is to help the youth develop self-control and positive decision-making skills. The ultimate goal is to return the youth to his natural home. Crossroads' clinical program is designed to be a compliment to the Virginia Juvenile Corrections approach. To meet the challenge of Uniform Individuality, residents are assessed and treated on a case-by-case basis within the context of consistent social rules. A Cognitive-Behavioral approach is utilized to reinforce appropriate social behaviors; while a token economy is the basis of maintaining the therapeutic milieu. An integral part of our treatment process is to emphasize respect for each individual's needs and strengths, and is designed to enhance personal growth, maturity, and healthy relationships. Each youth is assigned to an individual counselor at admission. This counselor will serve as a guide through the house program and will provide one-on-one interactions to evaluate the resident's progress. The in-house program is a combination of individual skills building and group process. Substance abuse counseling is provided by staff from the Psychological and Substance Abuse Services program or from Bacon Street. Individual and family counseling is provided by staff from the Family Counseling Services program. Educational needs are managed through the York County School system.
York County, Gloucester County, James City County, City of Williamsburg and Poquoson, and Mathews County; as well as surrounding localities through contracted services.
