Long-term residential treatment is a high intensity, clinically-managed treatment inpatient modality for drug and alcohol rehabilitation. Treatment is primarily designed to foster personal growth and social-skills development, with intervention focused on reintegrating the client into the greater community, and where education and vocational development are emphasized.

- Stages of change
- Cognitive behavioral framework
- Structured social learning
Long-term Treatment Goals
Our team will work with you to create a personalized, comprehensive plan for treatment including attainable goals that are clear and understandable.
The goals of treatment are:
- to help the individual to stop using drugs and begin a drug-free lifestyle
- to assist the individual in developing skills to resist drug use
- to improve problem-solving abilities
- to treat mental illness and drug addiction in an integrated way
- to introduce the 12 step programs
- to return the individual to productive functioning in the family, workplace, and community
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.
