OUR PHILOSOPHY

Turning Point Recovery Centers believes that prolonged substance abuse or chemical dependency leads to physical and psychological deterioration. In addition, prolonged substance abuse leads to deterioration of family relationships, employment, and frequently brings the abuser into contact with the criminal justice system. Substance abuse creates considerable cost to society in terms of the abuser’s loss of personal income; costs incurred with the criminal justice system contact; and cost involved with the treatment and rehabilitation of the abuser and/or the abuser’s family members.

Turning Point Recovery Centers, it’s Board of Directors, general membership and employees are dedicated to providing quality, affordable, and accessible treatment services to the substance abuser and the abuser’s family members. We seek to continually improve services by seeking new opportunities, refining our existing delivery systems and creatively and efficiently expanding services whenever possible.

Turning Point Recovery Centers believes that substance abuse and chemical dependency are two separate and distinct problems. While it is undeniable that all chemically dependent persons abuse a mood altering chemical, it is not necessarily true that all substance abusers become clinically dependent. However, the two may present very similar symptoms particularly in the early phases of addiction. The major distinction between abuse and dependence is loss of control on the part of the person using the chemical.

Turning Point Recovery Centers believes that repeated intoxications inevitably lead to problems in at least one of the following areas: social, legal, familial, physical or economic. Paradoxically, the use of most mood altering chemicals also develops as a coping mechanism for per-existing problems in one of the same areas.

Turning Point Recovery Centers further believes that anyone that uses mood altering chemicals, no matter what the reason, runs the risk of becoming chemically dependent. Chemical dependency (addictions) is an illness that has the potential to destroy every aspect of a person’s life if untreated. However, there are proven effective treatments for both substance abuse and chemical dependency, and these should be available to all who are affected.

Therefore, the goals of Turning Point Recovery Centers are as follows:

  • Reduce the incidence and prevalence of substance abuse
    and chemical dependency.
  • Maintain and enhance the intellectual, interpersonal and
    functional skills of those individuals affected by substance
    abuse or chemical dependency through the use of modern
    treatment and rehabilitation programs provided in the least
    restrictive environment possible.
  • Improve public understanding of, and attitudes toward,
    substance abuse and chemical dependency within this
    region.
