Crossroads – Pure Heart Outpatient Program

Crossroads Pure Heart offers trauma-competent outpatient addiction treatment program. We offer a 12 week program, meeting 3 times per week, each session 3 hours.  This Outpatient treatment program is ideal for those who have already completed a residential, inpatient or partial hospitalization treatment program and are looking for further care.

You may qualify for our IOP program without first participating in an inpatient program. A comprehensive assessment is completed prior to admitting to our IOP. The Crossroads Clinical Team works closely with patients to decide which type of group is most appropriate for your treatment goals.

  • We ask “what happened” as opposed to “what is wrong with you.”

  • We understand that when someone has been traumatized their responses might be black & white or “all or nothing”

  • We understand that substance use, eating disorders, violent behavior, depression or anxiety as a possible symptoms of trauma

  • We respect, support, inform, connect and give hope that “post-traumatic growth” is real and can happen to them

  • We know that someone with trauma is 7 times more likely to struggle with alcohol and 10 times more likely to use illicit drugs

Trauma/Substance Use IOP Group:

We offer an approach to trauma & addiction with a fresh lens which promotes a holistic view of healing from traumatic experiences and environments.  Traumatic and severely stressful, upsetting events can trigger anxiety, depression, posttraumatic stress, and unhelpful ways of coping with the overwhelming effects of such major life crises. Our goal is to assist in the process by enhancing positive change in life after trauma.

This group works to facilitate posttraumatic growth and promote improved adjustment in a newly defined and valued life.  Posttraumatic growth involves an intentional attempt to understand and assign meaning to traumatic events, transforming negative effects into positive meanings and change. Members re-examine events through different cognitive perspectives to reconstruct core beliefs about one’s self, the world, and the future, which are frequently disrupted in the aftermath of trauma.

The trauma/Substance Use IOP group incorporates resistance training and/or functional training into the daily group process.  The goal of this intervention is to specifically treat trauma in the body and learn new ways to cope with trauma in healthy ways.  Each client will receive a full wellness assessment to measure mobility and ability to incorporate exercise into their treatment plan.  Modification to movement where there is a physical limitation.  Individualized nutrition plans will be incorporated into each patient’s treatment goals.

Many different therapeutic approaches are used in the group however the main approach is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.  Other (but limited too) approaches include Holistic, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, and Internal Family Systems.
