Outpatient Programs


Dr. Stephen Shapiro, Medical Director of Turning Point since the program’s origin, says “We believe that our patients have a disease, and in order to stop the progression of the disease, our patients need to learn how to live without the use of drugs or alcohol.” 

The program provides a structure that will allow the individual to regain control of his or her environment by participating in daily activities and making positive decisions regarding the use of leisure time. The aim is to allow the patient to function with a measure of success that will result in a greater ability to take control and responsibility for daily living. 

Chemical dependency is a family disease.  Turning Point believes in outreach to families and supportive friends and co-workers.  We respond to the needs of affected children and address family dynamics that are associated with addictions.

As a full-care treatment center, we teach sobriety through hope, dignity and respect.  We focus on the whole person through physical, psychological and spiritual health and emphasize the need for support to live a full and healthy life.
