Additional Information

Cognitive-Behavioral therapy is the basic therapeutic technique used while counseling in both levels of treatment.  Alcoholics, addicts, and typical substance abusers learn inappropriate behaviors and negative thought patterns that contribute to a lifestyle that lacks honesty and discipline.  Turning Point staff focuses on bringing the person back to a clear understanding of what is positive and helpful versus the unhealthy approach they have learned due to their lifestyle.

We have found the 12-step approach to recovery to be most helpful in this technique.
