Tampa Crossroads, Inc. began offering services in 1977 in Hillsborough County. They now provide a full range of care including counseling and treatment, housing, employment services, help for Veterans and their families, and other support to men and women in our community. Tampa Crossroads has helped thousands of adults who have struggled with trauma and abuse, addictions, homelessness, and social problems. We would like to specifically highlight the women’s programs at Tampa Crossroads.
Their program only serves 18 women at a time, which allows them to be extremely individualized and personal with each one. The women tend to keep in touch years after they’ve graduated and they understand how their success is a positive impact on the entire community. For the drug treatment, Tampa Crossroads does not use the 12-Step model, instead their model is based off something called SMART Recovery, which is about controlling your thoughts. If you can control your thoughts and beliefs then you can control your behaviors and will ultimately change your feelings about things. They have had great success with that model and so do other countries.
Tampa Crossroads is fully accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, and you can find more information about their programs on the Tampa Crossroads website.
