Robert C. Gibson– Managing Director Crossroads Behavioral Health Center and Crossroads Substance Abuse Services Group

In the realm of alcohol and substance abuse recovery, one size does not fit all. The importance of individualized treatment programs cannot be overstated, as they recognize the unique complexities of each person’s journey toward sobriety. Crossroads Behavioral Health Center / Crossroads Substance Abuse Services Group, located at 708 Goodlette-Frank Road Naples, FL 34102, is a unique 90-day intensive outpatient (IOP) treatment program that is tailored for each client’s needs.  Crossroads has developed a proprietary curriculum that helps individuals seeking long term sobriety and aids in reaching their goals and dreams.

Intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) is often considered the most effective and flexible form of treatment for alcohol and substance abuse disorders for several reasons. One key advantage is the flexibility it offers in terms of scheduling. Unlike inpatient programs that require individuals to reside at the facility, IOP allows participants to maintain their daily routines, such as work or school, while still receiving intensive treatment during specified hours. This flexibility makes it a practical option for those who cannot commit to a full-time residential program due to family or work responsibilities. Additionally, Crossroads offers tele-health therapy, that delivers treatment programs to clients unable to attend in-person therapy sessions.

Crossroads multifaceted approach that includes individual counseling, group therapy, and educational sessions, addresses the various aspects of addiction, providing a well-rounded support system for recovery. The program serves as a transitional step and guide to increased independence and returning to daily life. This continuity of care helps individuals maintain their progress and cope with the challenges of reintegration into society.


Unlike other IOP programs, Crossroads offers various levels of care, tailored for each individual’s unique needs and circumstances.

CROSSROADS TIER 1 TREATMENT PROGRAMis designed for individuals new to recovery. Its primary focus is maintaining long term sobriety. We identify everyone’s potential relapse triggers and develop alternative relapse skills. Our core beliefs are examined and broken down into fact or opinion. We set specific measurable goals for every client. Clients focus on identifying career goals and work with their therapist and counselor to find a pathway to reach their obtainable dreams. In addition to employment skills, we address housing, which is a current crisis in SWFL. Crossroads assist our graduates to team together and seek sober living housing, allowing individuals in early recovery to pool their resources and support each other on their road to recovery.

CROSSROADS TIER 2 TREATMENT PROGRAMis designed specifically for professionals or retirees who recognize their increased drinking or drug use and want to make a change in their lives. Unfortunately, many of these individuals continue to suffer because they fear the stigma of recovery and often feel they are too old, or far along in their careers to set aside the time for a 30–60-day residential rehab program. At Crossroads we fully understand these concerns and apprehensions. Crossroads independent intensive outpatient addiction recovery program (IOP) for professionals and retirees is crucial for addressing:

  1. Confidentiality: Professionals and retirees are often hesitant to seek treatment for addiction in traditional rehab and organized group programs (AA /NA etc.) due to concerns about confidentiality. Crossroads Tier 2 treatment program is specifically designed for professionals, providing a more discreet and confidential environment, which increases the likelihood that they will seek and receive treatment.
  2. Unique Needs: Professionals and retirees have unique needs and challenges in addiction recovery, including concerns about their careers or the impact of addiction on their reputations. Crossroads autonomous program addresses these needs and provides specialized support and resources for professionals in recovery.
  3. Supportive Environment: Crossroads program provides a supportive environment with others who face similar challenges and experiences. This helps our clients feel less isolated and increases their motivation to engage in treatment and maintain their sobriety.
  4. Tailored Treatment: Our program provides tailored treatment that addresses the specific needs and challenges of professionals in recovery. Crossroads specialized program includes components such as stress management, career counseling, and relapse prevention strategies that are tailored to the unique needs of professionals.

CROSSROADS TIER 3 TREATMENT PROGRAMis specifically oriented towards those individuals suffering from dual diagnosis. Dual diagnosis treatment, which refers to the treatment of co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders, can be challenging in addiction recovery for:

  1. Complexity: Dual diagnosis cases are often more complex than cases of substance abuse alone, as the presence of a mental health disorder can complicate treatment and recovery efforts.
  2. Misdiagnosis: It is often difficult to accurately diagnose both a mental health disorder and a substance use disorder, as symptoms of one disorder can mimic the symptoms of the other. This can result in misdiagnosis and a delay in appropriate treatment.
  3. Treatment resistance: Individuals with dual diagnosis may be resistant to treatment or may struggle to engage in treatment due to the presence of anxiety, depression, or psychosis.
  4. Stigma: There is often a stigma associated with both mental health disorders and substance abuse, which can make it challenging for individuals to seek and receive treatment for both conditions.

Crossroads Tier 3 dual diagnosis program involves medication management, behavioral therapy, and support groups. In addition, our individualized treatment plans address each person’s unique needs and challenges.

CROSSROADS TIER 4 TREATMENT PROGRAM – Is a specific treatment program for individuals with drug and alcohol related arrests. Crossroads Tier 4 treatment program, in association with the SW Florida Safety Council, as well as Collier and Lee County Parole Departments, assists court and other mandated individuals following a DUI and / or drug related arrest.
