Crossroads Day Treatment

crossroads

This program of Cray is an after-school and summer treatment program for youth, ages 5-17, who are at-risk for being removed from their home or have been released from placement, but continue to need ongoing structure.  We provide individual and group therapy, study and social skills training, and recreation.  Students in this program may also receive Aggression Replacement Training.
