For Parents & Families
We offer therapy and counseling for children, youth and families that can take a variety of forms. Below are some examples.
Individual and Family Counseling and Therapies
Turning Point offers supportive individual counseling for children and youth, as well as family therapy, counseling, and support that takes place in the comfortable setting of your home. Our experienced therapists specialize in helping youth and families work through substance abuse issues, mental health issues, behavior concerns, family conflict, and many other issues that affect youth and their relationships with family members and others.
This program provides mentoring for youth from elementary through high school who are in need of guidance and positive role models. Our mentors participate with youth in recreational and leisure activities, help them with life and social skills development, provide transportation and connections to community activities, help with homework, and offer guidance with school and job applications and interviews.
Students placed in Turning Point’s Residential Program receive the following services
Services begin once students are placed and continue for up to six months after they are discharged:
- Extensive treatment and transition program to help students change behaviors that initially placed them at risk.
- Support for students for six months after they are discharged from Turning Point’s Residential Treatment Program and return to public school and the community. This includes support for families as they adjust to the student being back in the home.
- Career exploration and work experience through internships and job shadowing.
- Assistance with finding a career path that will motivate students to not only earn a diploma or GED, but also continue with post-secondary education goals.
