Mindfulness Recovery at Crossroads
Crossroads has started a new outpatient program at Crossroads Extension in Mesa called East Valley Integrated Care. This includes programming that focuses on wellness with new interventions used including: computer technology, yoga, and Art Of Our Soul art healing groups. The clinic is not only for their inpatient residents, but open and available to outpatient clients as well, and those on their own journey of recovery who are living in the community.
Crossroads Technology Assisted Care focuses on Mindfulness Based Treatment, Meditation, and Cognitive Behavioral interventions designed to address Substance Use Disorders. Through in-person and software applications our clients have access to guided meditations, mindfulness, community resources and real time daily check-ins. These are interactive platforms to guide clients through holistic interventions as part of their treatment in both group and independent settings.
New Yoga Classes
As you walk into Crossroads, you’ll find the new tranquil yoga space near the lobby, with sparkling lights, and a soothing ambiance to welcome guests at various classes and times. Some might say Yoga is one of the “secrets to sobriety” as a complementary element for substance use treatment and recovery. It can help calm the mind of an addict, temper knee-jerk panic reactions, lower stress and anxiety, and improve physical fitness, to name just a few of the many benefits.
A regular yoga practice can also help people develop the discipline needed to succeed in 12-step programs, an important basis of Crossroads, including its Right Track program. The mindfulness practices taught in yoga and the slow, controlled breathing are tools to help curb impulse control—something many substance abusers struggle with.
New Art of Our Soul Studio
Crossroads partnered with Brandon Lee’s Art of Our Soul to create the first franchised art studio in a Valley clinic. Opening now for inpatient and outpatient guests, this colorful and vibrant art studio aims to energize, inspire and motivate those on their recovery mission.
The simple act of being creative can be magical. Without having to rely on words, the power of art can help a person express themselves freely— ideas, feelings, thoughts and emotions. For this therapeutic modality, participants don’t need to have an artistic talent, they just need to be open to the experience and engage.
The use of art as a therapeutic framework in the treatment of Substance Use Disorders dates back to the 1950s.The American Art Therapy Association acknowledges the role that art as an intervention can play in managing addictions. Art Of Our Soul believes art has the ability to enhance one’s mood, emotions, and other psychological states, while lowering anxiety, stress, depression and isolation.
