Crossroads: New Decisions is the second app in the Crossroads: A Game of Choices series.This social-emotional learning game is aimed at teaching positive decision-making to players 13 and older.
The Crossroads series is an innovative new tool aimed at facilitating conversations around healthy decision making and substance abuse for youth suffering from or considered at risk for substance abuse. Crossroads is a supplemental tool to assist therapy and care providers in teaching and assessing youth through a game-based format. Crossroads collects no identifying information, and as a standalone version is intended for educational purposes only. All Crossroads games are free to download.
In all of the Crossroads series, players navigate through virtual real-world scenarios where they are tasked with making decisions.
Situations in New Decisions include:
- Driving under the influence;
- Unsupervised parties;
- Having a Safety plan;
- Motivational interviewing
Correct decisions lead to engaging game play and players are rewarded with in-game currency they can spend in the game’s virtual store. Incorrect decisions lead to information on how to make better choices and an opportunity to try again.
