Our Mission & Vision
At Turning Point, our mission and our vision are simple. We strive to provide
care for individuals facing alcoholism and drug dependency, along with
those battling co-occurring mental health disorders. Our mission is to
lessen the stigma that is all too often associated with these battles.
We seek to provide resources and help for the underprivileged and underserved
in our community.
At the time our program was founded, addiction sufferers who were unable
to afford private residential treatment were forced to travel as far as
upstate New York for detoxification / rehabilitation services at Graymoor.
Our founders established a 10-bed residential program for men in Cedar
Grove on March 17, 1975.
Turning Point began in 1975 in response to a direct need in our community.
As the needs of our patients evolved, our programs expanded and adapted
in response. Below are listed some of the treatments now offered at Turning
Point. Our program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of
Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) and has received special commendation
from CARF for our above-and-beyond efforts to fight for patients and to
reduce the stigma related with addictions and co-occurring disorders.
