We are currently in search of a building to open a men's supportive living home. Clients will live on-premises and work during the daytime (at staff-approved job sites) and are expected to attend classes in the evenings and church on Sunday. They will learn the life and job skills necessary to maintain a successful sober life.
After the restoration of lives and families, community engagement is an integral part of our organization. We know that a strong collaborative community offers health and wholeness on a large scale. We are constantly reaching out and partnering with every area of our community both for individual and our organizational health. We welcome any and all organizations to reach out to us for strategic alliances to better serve our communities as a whole.
We offer recovery support services to those struggling with substance use in the community and are a provider for Hardee County Courts and Probation for county offenders. Our services include drug testing, drug evaluations, group support, one-on-one meetings, anger management, emotional intelligence, parenting, and other life skills classes. Whether court-ordered, voluntarily by the individual, or referred by an employer, we are here to serve your needs.
In November of 2019 The Crossings Services, in partnership with The Hardee County Judicial System began a Pretrial Release Program in Hardee County. This has saved the county over $200,000 within the first 3 quarters of 2020 and allows non-violent offenders an opportunity to be released and able to continue working and meeting the conditions of their release while awaiting their court date.
Employer Drug Testing Services
We understand the importance of maintaining a safe workplace. We offer drug testing locally, with a quick return of results. Historically, testing employees requires sending them to a lab and waiting for test results before they can return to work or before onboarding of a new employee, now these services can be provided in Hardee County.
What happens if an existing employee has a positive result? The cost of hiring a new employee, when factoring in recruitment and training, is thousands of dollars per employee depending on their job description. Keeping an employee who is already trained, through support from their employer and with early intervention with The Crossing Services assisting the employee in their recovery, is vital and less costly to the company. Thereby bringing value to the employee, employer, and to our community.
Client Supervision Through Technology
This app is a simple solution for a complicated and costly problem in our criminal justice system. TON offers 24/7 supervision including geo-location, time stamps, biometric check-ins, alerts, regular reports, and more. This effective system ensures accurate real-time supervision and reporting with state of the art authentication in a cost-effective way.
The Crossings Addiction Services, Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit corporation (D.B.A. The Crossings Services). It was formed out of a desire to help people break the chains of addictions, and to thrive in recovery for the rest of their lives. It isn't enough to just work the steps and do the classes. It is about helping them learn to love themselves and give them hope for a new life, then giving them the skills necessary to become productive members of the community and restore their lives. You take you wherever you go, so it is important that clients learn to live and work in their own communities.
The Crossings Services utilizes multiple strategies including Peer Support, Evidence, Faith, and Principle Based concepts, as well as Technology Assisted Care to help our clients reach their full potential and maintain sobriety as part of their aftercare.
