The Crossroads Partial Hospitalization Program is a day treatment program for adolescents who experience symptoms of a mental health diagnosis that interfere with their ability to function effectively in their home, school, and/or community. Adolescents from Elk, Cameron, McKean, Clearfield, and Jefferson counties are eligible to participate in treatment at Crossroads. Treatment interventions include group, family, and individual therapy as well as psychiatric evaluation and medication management. Crossroads also includes an academic component, which allows program participants to remain in their home school district. A teacher is on-site to provide instruction, while a mental health worker is present to provide therapeutic interventions in the academic setting.
