The Crossroads Club is not a sober home or treatment center. Rather, Crossroads is a non-profit 12-Step based meeting center that supports an average of 900 people per day who are pursuing recovery from various forms of addiction. Since 1982, Crossroads has been an essential element in the recovery of countless individual residents, snowbirds, and other visitors from around the world. By providing the space for the recovery meetings to take place, Crossroads has helped empower these individuals to reemerge as positive contributors to the community and would greatly benefit from your support. Crossroads’ mission is simply to provide a wonderful safe harbor for individuals to meet in order to become true to themselves and to be released from the bondages of addiction.
