Upon entering Turning Point, each client is assessed in the bio-psycho-social-spiritual areas using the Addiction Severity Index and an assessment of psychiatric disorders. With client input, an individualized treatment plan is then formulated. Clients work on treatment plan assignments in their individual and group sessions, through their participation in didactic and other therapy sessions. Treatment plans are reviewed and revised weekly, but more frequently if needed. The environment is recovery-oriented, and each client is treated with respect and dignity.
Long-term residential care length is determined based upon your individual needs and will be discussed with you prior to enrollment. Treatment episode is clinically determined an average 90-180 days.
The following services are provided to long-term residential treatment clients:
We understand that proximity is often a big part of maximizing your chance at a successful, effective treatment program. Turning Point offers long-term care options for residents in New Jersey, so you don’t have to travel far to receive the treatment that you need. This is especially important for new mothers, who do not to want to be far from family as they care for their new baby. Although we do have multiple locations for short-term care and our other services, long-term care is available at our Paterson location only. Let us help you find joy in sobriety–whether at our Paterson location or any of our other offices. At Turning Point, you are in good hands.
