Philosophy

We show men and women struggling with addiction exactly what they need to do to become clean and sober, and how to stay on the road to recovery. Turning Point’s first substance abuse treatment program—a 10-bed residential program for men—began in March 1975. Since then, we have treated over 40,000 clients and have grown to offer a range of services for adults who are struggling with addiction. We provide exceptional treatment for clients with complex combinations of substance abuse and co-occurring mental illness.

what a cold place. ME filled out all the proper paper work and got a ride from an hour away. Upon arrival she was lied to told there was no paper work for her, which had been sent from the detox facility she was in and was turned away to the streets with no where to go. She needed help and found none at turning point the only turn they make is turning people away. What a disgrace to treat someone who has nothing as if they are nothing.

Since my daughter had been admitted to this facility she's been bullied by patients and then by staff, once she brings the issue to their attention. She is there to learn healing, coping, and skills to no longer use drugs. Not deal with petty drama daily. She's been allowed to call family once while there. And no one, I'm told a counselor, will call never happened. Yes she signed a release. Now I'm to guess her discharge date. And drive two hours hoping she's released. She's written letters stating there's more down time than anything else. And staff are disrespectful, treating people like infants. I would not recommend this facility to anyone. I hope to God she got something out of her 21 day stay. Or it's back to ground zero. What a waste of time, money, and energy for her and our family.

Turning Point is the worst program to go to. They sit you in front of a television with help motivated movies....Also the director of the facilitation is the most fake person out there... Highly recommend not going there!

This is the WORST facility I\'ve ever been to. The food is like SLOP. The bunk beds are hard and smell disgusting. They \"write you up\" for the dumbest things and if you AMA or get kicked out then they put you on the steps outside with your stuff in a clear bag and let you figure it out ( very degrading) . The counselors look down on you because we\'re addicts and they act very snobby towards the patients. They try to send everyone to a 6-12 month long term program after their short term program & will use your legal stuff against you. The patients steal and the staff won\'t even look at the cameras to help you find out what happened. The staff also play favorites. It was BY FAR the WORST FACILITY IVE EVER BEEN TO. I would not recommend this to my worst enemy. you couldn\'t pay me enough to go back.

The only thing this place is good for is to physically detox yourself. The food is horrible and you only see the outside 4 times a day for 15 minutes at a time. The counsellors didn\'t seem to care about each individual patient. They all seemed like they had too much work to be sincere to each person. They also don\'t clean very much and the beds are worse than hospital beds. If you are only looking to get off the drugs then go here. If you want to learn how to live your life after the drugs as well go somewhere else!

Nephew is still sober after 1 year. Wait for check out and check in was too long and nobody could tell how long it was going to take while we waited. Staff seemed nice enough, personally, to those of us bring someone in but efficiency was not a strong point in that no one kept us informed as to how long check in/out would take.

Is average in my opinion. Based in my observation. This is going back 8 plus years ago. Things might have changed Things involving family and communication with the family. Keeping the family aware of progress pr lack of. I feel is important
