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.

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.
