Treatment Modalities

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

DBT is an internationally-recognized, proven psychotherapy. It’s also the hallmark of our program at Turning Point. DBT incorporates the concepts of behavior therapy, mindfulness and acceptance, as well as changing thoughts and behaviors. DBT gives Turning Point clients the skills, abilities and validation to recover from addiction and build a life worth living in recovery

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Substance misuse is often rooted in problematic thinking. Utilizing a range of CBT skills, Turning Point clients learn to identify and correct the thoughts that lead them to using. This solution-based thinking helps our clients to overcome their destructive patterns of behavior as they work towards new, positive goals.

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)

For many, the process of recovery will require medicinal help. The medication-assisted treatment program (MAT) at Turning Point is designed to increase the effectiveness of rehab by reducing the severity of withdrawal and craving and promote a more focused state of mind during therapy sessions. MAT is proven to extend periods of sobriety and promote successful recovery.

Co-Occurring Disorders (Dual Diagnosis)

For many, addiction co-occurs with some type of mental or mood disorder including depression, anxiety, bipolar, trauma or other conditions. Our clinical staff at Turning Point has extensive experience in providing specialized treatment for co-occurring disorders, as well as behavioral issues such as impulse control, anger and personality disorders.

Family Support Program

Addiction is a family disease - and recovery from addiction is a process of family healing. At Turning Point, we believe that a strong support network increases the chances of long-term recovery. With client permission, we invite loved ones to participate in family education and counseling programs.

Art Therapy

When it comes to creating art, there are numerous therapeutic benefits to be had. At Turning Point, we leverage art in a way to provide clients additional ways to communicate their thoughts, feelings and experiences - all in a healthy manner.

Pet Therapy

Pets can assist with addiction recovery in countless ways. Pet therapy - or, animal-assisted therapy, can help reduce tension, improve moods, lower blood pressure and decrease stress and depression. At Turning Point pet therapy is offered on a weekly basis in order to help clients on their recovery journey.
