I never could have imagined when rocking my baby that 15 years later I would be picking her up at the police station for assault and possession. It had been obvious that our once happy, carefree daughter had a problem. She was a mess and

Obviously the people who are slamming this program didn't want their kids to get sober or had any other experience with rehabs. They all require you to hang out with other sober people. This program saved my son's life after many, many

What a horrifying program!! My daughter joined 3+ years ago, and we left shortly thereafter, realizing it's a total scam $20,000 lighter. You can't have barely-literate, uneducated former addicts claiming they can "cure" your kid just

Looking for some way to help my children get off marijuana, we sent them to Crossroads. They exchanged marijuana for cigarettes. Crossroads had 20-something "counselors" who taught them to "french inhale cigarettes", but not much more.

First, yes - they will help your kid get off drugs/alcohol. However, they will exchange one addiction for another, and that's an addiction to the group, and the false dichotomy that your kid either stays in this group or will die. School

If you are thinking of trying this program, first read about Steve Hassan's BITE Mind Control model (easily found in a google search). Then, search Youtube for videos of the founder of ICECAP (Crossroads), Bob Meehan. He has a foul mouth, a (recent) criminal history, and the verbally manipulative tactics of Charles Mansion. When I decided to try the group for thirty days, it quickly led to inpatient stays in their unaccredited facility in Phoenix, until I went on to their St. Louis based outpatient program. And once they found out that I'm gay, I was told to undergo rigorous therapy sessions with their quack Medical Director, Lee Lockwood, who uses outdated, manipulative, Freudian methods, and is an alcoholic in treatment himself. At first, you'll get plenty of hugs. The counselors will suggest to parents that their kids should be allowed to smoke cigarettes (as young as 13), then if the parents can afford the bogus treatment, it's endless amounts of that ... And if you're lucky, you graduate the program and go on to A.A. meetings with all the other guys who never figured out how to leave the self-fulfilling paradigm of, "Only we can cure you. Your thinking got you here." Parents will be turned against their kids if need be to keep them in the program and vice versa. I am not bitter, simply a person who's life was changed evermore since I went to that first meeting. After a year of sobriety- no relapses- I was kicked out of the program because I "wasn't willing to work a program with my homosexuality." Is this group something you really want your vulnerable teen to devote the next several years of his/her life? Crossroaders are not encouraged to finish high school or college, as the case may be. It is difficult to quit hard drugs cold turkey (trust me, I know), but the group supplements the drug experience with something that seems greater than family or society: evangelizing a drug-free, awesome, good time ... and at one BIG price: one's sense of self. ***Friends don't let friends join cults that pose as the answer to life's questions. This one does, but it can't!

Pros: PROS - A good distraction from drugs, school, homelife, self

Cons: CONS - Nothing is what it seems. Beware of these salesmen

Crossroads has a unique way of helping teens get off of alcohol and other substances. They taught me how to stay sober and more importantly how to like staying sober. My life changed after my first appointment at Crossroads. I spent the first few months of sobriety hanging out with people, staying up late at night, having fun and fellowship with people my own age. These people were also staying sober. At around 3 months of sobriety, I got a job. Things started to become important to me. When I say things I mean anything other than myself. Having a job, going to school, amending my broken relationship with my family, just to name a few. I attended meetings and functions provided by Crossroads until I graduated the program. From there I have continued to be a productive member of society. I attend A.A. meeetings almost daily, I go to work everyday and I have a loving relationship with my family. I am in debt to Crossroads because they helped me save my life. They gave me the tools that I choose to live my life by today. I guess that I get a little offended when people say that Crossroads takes up too much time, because in the big picture, that is what Crossroads has given me, time. Time to live and enjoy my life sober and happy. I love who they are and what they do. I am grateful that Crossroads is set up the way that it is, because it helped me at 18, find a way to get sober and love it!

Pros: saved my life

Cons: can't get high anymore, cause life is so good!

This treatment center is supposed to help teens and young adults with substance abuse issues. Everything revolves around the program, 24/7, at all costs. This is not a realistic way to help anyone deal with the everyday issues of life. Keep your child away unless you want to lose them to a "cult" like family.

Crossroads provides the best treatment for young people and parents in Missouri. They offer an outpatient, Intensive outpatient, weekly support group meetings for both young people and parents, sober functions on the weekends, and a counseling staff that is above and beyond dedication and commitment. They make sobriety attractive. The support group is 18-24 months and they also offer alumni meetings to graduates. No other treatment program in Mo, offers this.
