About Turning Point:

Help with Substance Abuse Treatment, Behavior, and Mental Health

Turning Point Center for Youth and Family Development was established as an emergency shelter for youth in the juvenile justice system in 1967. It has grown to become a multi-service agency offering a continuum of services including:

  • Preventative services, like Drug and Alcohol Education in schools
  • Crisis intervention services
  • Outpatient therapies and treatment
  • Coaching and mentoring programs
  • In-home services like Home Preservation program

Today, Turning Point is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. We are dedicated to turning lives around for youth needing substance abuse treatment, help with behavior or mental health issues, or a combination. We offer a broad range of programs from outpatient services to in-home services, offering help and hope for youth and their families.

Our programs give youth the skills to make better decisions and healthier life choices. Services such as therapeutic treatment and support combine to offer a brighter future for each of the kids in our care.

We provide direct clinical intervention services to address behavioral health and substance abuse issues for high-risk youth, ultimately teaching them to make healthy life choices and smarter decisions.

Throughout Turning Point’s history, the agency has adjusted programming to respond to growing community needs. Our well-qualified staff and extensive continuum of care combined with our five decades of experience allow us to better treat youth using the programs and services they need, no matter the intensity of their troubles and challenges.
