Turning Point’s first substance abuse treatment program—a 10-bed residential program for men—began in March 1975. Since then, we have treated over 40,000 clients and have grown to offer a range of services for adults who are struggling with addiction.
We provide exceptional treatment for clients with complex combinations of substance abuse and co-occurring mental illness.
All of Turning Point’s treatment programs are based upon the patient placement criteria established by the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM).
Turning Point Offers 2 Family Programs
The Family Wellness Program:
The Family Education and Visitation Program:
Turning Point offers sub-acute, medically monitored detoxification (“detox”) from opiates and alcohol. All clients are assessed for continued treatment either within Turning Point’s continuum of care or in another licensed treatment provider.
Clients with co-occurring disorders (substance use and mental health disorders) are detoxified from alcohol or opiates and stabilized on their psychotropic medications. The average length of stay varies based upon the severity of the client’s condition.
Our Short Term Residential Programs vary in length of stay; treatment can range from several weeks to two months, depending on the client’s assessed needs and progress toward treatment plan goals. We provide services for both men and women. We balance chemical addiction and co-occurring disorders in mental illness. We provide a range of treatment approaches used to guide clients on the road to recovery:
We encourage our clients to structure their free time so they can complete assignments, enjoy recreation, and participate in workshops such as stress and anger management, meditation, yoga and others.
Specialized Services for Women: Our short term program offers a specialized unit for women, including women who are pregnant or post-partum.
It is a fact that substance users arrested for a non-violent crime are more likely ultimately to lead a sober, productive life if they receive treatment for their drug use rather than go to jail. With this in mind, the State’s Division of Addiction Services (DAS) has contracted with Turning Point to provide treatment as part of the New Jersey Drug Court Initiative managed by the NJ Department of Law and Public Safety, Administrative Office of the Courts. Turning Point’s program is designed to help non-violent, drug-involved offenders break the addiction/crime cycle and to lead a more productive lifestyle.
Outpatient Treatment Services
Turning Point offers Outpatient and Intensive Outpatient Treatment Services in Verona at 15 Bloomfield Avenue and in Paterson at Barnert Medical Arts Complex, 680 Broadway. These services include assessment, client education, individual and group therapy, family education, family therapy , and referral to other programs and organizations. The Outpatient Program staff also offer consultation, addiction education and training to the local community. Through our Intensive Outpatient option, Turning Point offers intensive day or evening services (three to five days per week for three hours a day). Generally, clients in this program require more intensive treatment initially, then gradually less intensive treatment as the client progresses in his/her recovery. Our services for clients with co-occurring disorders (substance use and mental health disorders) are specifically designed to treat clients with both a primary substance use disorder and a psychiatric disorder.
Is your family struggling with addiction? Turning Point can help you whether or not your loved one has made the choice for sobriety.
You are invited to attend a Family Education Group that will teach you about the disease of addiction, how it affects families and what you can do about it. The program is affordable and we accept most major insurance plans. Call 973-239-9400 ext. 195 or email email@example.com for more information.
