ABOUT TURNING POINT - FREEDOM CENTER FOR WOMEN
Turning Point is a state-licensed non-hospital, medically monitored detoxification and inpatient treatment facility in Franklin, Penn.
The facility’s Freedom Center for Women, one of just 260 (51.8 percent) of statewide facilities designed specifically for women, is home to both short- and long-term inpatient programs; respectively, one of 77 (15.3 percent) of short-term programs and one of 114 (22.7 percent) that extends past 30 days.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Many clients begin with medically monitored detoxification services for an average of four days.
The non-hospital program aims to alleviate a client’s withdrawal symptoms and ensure them a safe detox process. It is one of just 165 (32.9 percent) of facilities statewide that provides Suboxone for detox from heroin and other opiates. Clients in detox also typically take their assessment and begin the treatment process before transitioning into residential treatment.
Short-term inpatient treatment typically lasts 14 to 28 days and is individualized for each client; it includes participation in group therapy five days per week and individual counseling at least twice weekly. Turning Point also runs specialized groups in relapse prevention and anger management.
The long-term program ranges widely from 90 to 120 days and is built for individuals who have history of relapse (or indicate a high potential for relapse). Clients focus on developing essential life skills like job searching, money management, and parenting and have opportunity to complete their GED.
Clients attend local Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings as well as meetings that are held on-campus each morning. The center is host to a free family program on Saturdays from 12:45 to 4:45 p.m.
The treatment team includes medical doctors, licensed nurses, addition counselors, and a consulting psychologist staff. Nursing staff are available 24 hours a day.
