Description

Description

Since opening in Golden Valley, Minn. in 1976, Turning Point has helped more than 24,000 people free themselves from addiction to alcohol and other drugs. Over the years, it has become clear that sobriety is not the end but the beginning, and that the goal is total recovery. In order to achieve lasting recovery, treatment must address the underlying issues that led to substance abuse.

Turning Point is licensed by the state of Minnesota to provide Rule 31 chemical dependency treatment. The main facility has the capacity to provide inpatient care to 24 men with 24-hour monitoring. Turning Point also provides outpatient treatment to men and women.

Turning Point’s Culturally Specific Service Center (CSSC) addresses disparities in the African American community. Through CSSC, Turning Point has developed partnerships with agencies that have expertise in such areas as job placement and employment counseling, legal assistance, health insurance, mental health, education and housing. These partners are accessible at Turning Point’s main headquarters in Minneapolis, where inpatient and outpatient services are provided.

The treatment program consists of two phases. Phase 1 transitions men from chemical dependency to self-sufficiency through sobriety. The average term is 30 days, depending on a client’s needs. Phase 2 extends the treatment and focuses on establishing a sober lifestyle. The average term of Phase 2 is 50 to 60 days, depending on a client’s assessed needs. Services include case management, individual and group counseling, sobriety living skills, relationship counseling, job-skills training and employment counseling.

Turning Point’s founder and president, Dr. Peter Hayden, was a pioneer in recognizing the importance of providing treatment tailored to the specific cultural needs and experiences of African Americans and other minority groups. After entering a chemical dependency treatment program in 1973, Dr. Hayden discovered that the treatment center he attended did not have clients or staff that looked like him, and that most African Americans did not seek treatment because there were no treatment centers in their communities. Treatment programs failed to address issues that African Americans face every day. Dr. Hayden founded Turning Point in 1976, with the help of Minneapolis community leaders Harry Davis, Richard Green and Earl Craig.

As CSSC has developed as a vital community resource, Turning Point has also become a leader of culturally specific training for businesses and organizations. As Turning Point approaches its 40th anniversary in 2016, it remains committed to stopping drug and alcohol abuse, which often leads to poverty, homelessness, unemployment and the destruction of families. Turning Point strives to resolve these issues one person at a time.
