As your new Executive Director, I’m so grateful to be a part of an organization where there is so much positivity. That may be hard to believe considering we are a group of individuals overcoming some of the hardest things people may ever go through. In fact, someone said to me the other day, “I know what you do for a living, and I’m surprised at how much joy you have in your life.”

Yes, I am joyful. To do what I do is an honor and a privilege not many people experience. To witness life change on this level is inspiring. To stand alongside women as they find purpose and an identity they can be proud of is fulfilling. My heart is for every person that walks through the doors of Crossroads. My hope is that they feel safe and begin to build trust so healing can take place. This is where the magic happens, in the healing.

I encourage each of you to step out of your comfort zone and talk to someone you wouldn’t normally speak to. Let your first thought about someone be positive. Love others without judgment and have compassion for those who are different from you. Every effort we make as individuals to change the way we speak and interact with others eventually impacts our entire community. Join us in breaking the stigma of addiction, in doing so, we all win.

Come visit us  anytime— we’d love to fill your heart and inspire you!

News From Crossroads

In February, several residents from our program had the enriching opportunity to attend The Circle of Sisters (COS) Women’s Convention of Narcotics Anonymous in San Diego. Hosted at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina, this convention provided a supportive and empowering space for women in recovery to connect, learn, and grow.

For many of our residents, this convention was a transformative experience. It offered a chance to connect with other women who have walked similar paths, sharing stories of struggle and triumph. The workshops and discussions held at COS provided valuable insights and tools for maintaining sobriety and building a fulfilling life in recovery.

The Circle of Sisters Women’s Convention was not just an event, but a beacon of hope for our residents. It reminded them that recovery is a journey best traveled together, with support, understanding, and sisterhood. We are proud of all our residents who attended COS and look forward to supporting them as they continue their recovery journeys.

Family Program

We are also excited to announce the launch of our new Family Program, designed by our LPHA, Marlyn Kellogg, to support the loved ones of our residents in their own journey of understanding and healing. Substance abuse disorder impacts not only the individual but also their family and friends, and we recognize the importance of providing education and support to those who care for our residents.

The Family Program will provide an opportunity for families to connect with our staff and learn more about addiction and boundaries when supporting a loved one struggling with substance abuse disorder. Through workshops, group sessions, and one-on-one meetings and through Zoom, families will gain valuable insights into the challenges their loved one’s face and how they can best support their recovery journey.

This program is not only about providing support to our residents’ families but also about fostering a sense of community and understanding among all those affected by addiction. We believe that by working together, we can create a stronger support network that benefits everyone involved.

As this is our first newsletter, we would like to remind you that your support can make a difference in the lives of women on their journey to recovery. By donating to our program, you are providing crucial resources that enable us to continue offering a safe and nurturing environment for women to heal and thrive. Thank you for your generosity and support.
