Addiction Treatment Center Opens New Outpatient Program

July 28, 2006

Offers local residents discreet and convenient access to help for alcoholism 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).
