Turning Point Treatment Center

4849 US 322, Franklin, Pennsylvania, 16323
Turning Point Treatment Center's philosophy is based on the fact that addiction is a disease and utilizes a clinical model to treat the individual. Shortly after admission, an assessment is completed to determine the level of care appropriate for the client. Based on the assessment, a treatment plan is developed with the client that allows the client to recognize the severity of his or her addiction, gain knowledge of addiction and recovery, identify and deal with issues that may block ongoing recovery, and utilize available support for ongoing recovery.

Facility Highlights

  • Individual Counseling
  • Educational Lectures
  • Anger Management


  • 12-Step

    The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
  • Family Program

    Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.

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.

Turning Point’s medically monitored detoxification unit is one of just 46 (9.2 percent) of its kind statewide.


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.


Turning Point’s Freedom Center for Women is located about three miles from the main campus and can accommodate up to 28 women at a time.

In the sole Rehabs.com survey response to date, an alum described the environment of the women’s center as “homey.”


The one former client surveyed by Rehabs.com to date was disappointed with the detox and treatment services she received, making claim that she’d “never go back again.”

Mindy complained over favoritism for the “long term girls.” “It made feel like I was not good enough,” she told Rehabs.com. “They preach humility and kindness but they show that its only when u conform to what they want u to be."

On Google, where Turning Point as an organization has an average rating of 3.3 out of five stars from 20 reviewers, negative reviewers noted disorganization and problems with insurance coverage and medication prescriptions. Positive reviews noted long-term treatment effectiveness.[1]
