and drug dependency
VERONA, NJ – Local residents and their families struggling with alcoholism
or drug dependency and unsure where to turn have a new, discreet, local
option available in their quest for recovery. Turning Point has opened
a new Outpatient Treatment Program at 96 Pompton Avenue in Verona. Turning
Point, nationally recognized for its compassionate and effective treatment
of alcoholism and drug dependency, has served more than 30,000 clients
from Essex County and surrounding communities at its residential treatment
centers since 1975.
Clients and their loved ones willfind a wide range of professional services
at the conveniently located new Outpatient Program. Specially trained
and licensed Counselors meet confidentially with prospective clients to
assess their needs and schedule counseling sessions. Counseling is available
for individuals, families, and married or unmarried couples.
Services for families include educational groups and workshops designed
to answer their questions, as well as support groups for those dealing
with the effects of a member struggling with addiction. Community members
can sign up for educational sessions about the nature of addiction and
options for treatment, or they can simply call if they have questions
and don’t know where else to turn. Turning Point Outpatient team
members will, if appropriate, make referrals to other programs and organizations
to meet community members’ special needs.
Turning Point accepts clients who cannot afford to pay for private treatment,
and also takes managed care and insurance plans. Self-payment is made
based on a sliding fee scale. Turning Point is accredited by the Commission
on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) and adheres to the
criteria set by the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM).
