The Joint Commission accredited Turning Point Programs provide services for individuals in need of a medically managed detoxification process. Those served often present with a complicated mix of psychosocial stressors, multiple substance use or dependency issues, histories of trauma, challenging personalities and mental health problems.
Activity and educational services in the detoxification unit are tailored to accommodate the person served, their physical and psychological limitations and their short length of stay which averages 3-5 days. Since the detoxification services are short-term and crisis oriented; they are designed to provide educational and general rehabilitation needs. The overall goal is to orient the person served to the disease of substance use disorders, to the recovery process, to build peer support and to provide positive and health-oriented individual and group experiences.
The primary goal of this combined activity/educational agenda is to orient the person being served to the condition of substance use disorders while providing basic knowledge of the main dynamics of the disease of addiction and key aspects of the recovery process. Detoxification services address social, cultural, physical, and short-term health maintenance and rehabilitation needs. This is facilitated though educational group sessions.
Further, leisure time is given so individuals may engage in meaningful personal and recreational activities on their own.
We are qualified to handle most psychiatric admissions that have been stabilized medically. We routinely treat persons served who have co-occurring substance use disorders and mental illnesses.
