Residential Treatment Centers

What are residential treatment centers?

Residents in our addiction recovery housing facilities receive treatment for their substance use disorders in our residential treatment centers, usually for a period of 30-90 consecutive days. Through specialized, evidence-based programs, residential treatment centers offer a highly-structured environment that helps residents overcome their addictions, achieve sobriety, and live a more productive life.

Our residential treatment centers are gender-specific. New Beginnings is our residential treatment center for women and Turning Point is our residential treatment center for men.

Turning Point Residential Treatment Center

Turning Point (TP) is divided into two programs:

  1. Intensive residential treatment every day of the week.
  2. Less intensive treatment with prospects to pursue employment and educational opportunities in the community.

TP is designed to meet the treatment needs of men who are suffering from severe substance use disorders. TP South accommodates 12 women and TP North houses 14 men. The two sites share a common wall but are completely separate facilities. See our group schedules for a complete list of the addiction recovery programs offered at our Turning Point residential treatment center.
