A Turning Point is an alcohol and drug addiction treatment facility that is located at 5160 North Union Boulevard in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Treating substance abuse involves multiple stages of treatment through a recovery program such as that offered by A Turning Point. This can include group counseling, individual counseling, outpatient treatment, inpatient treatment, and medically assisted detox, among many others. Treatment programs are based on the individual themselves and are constructed to suit each patient individually. Just as every person is unique, so should treatment programs and that is exactly what patients will receive at A Turning Point.

If addicts do not obtain the right type of support and guidance, they may find treatment to be very difficult as the thought of sobriety can seem so far-fetched. At A Turning Point, professional counseling and guidance are provided to all patients aged Adolescents, Adult men, Adult women, Seniors or older adults, giving them the strength needed in order to obtain a life that is free of drug and alcohol addiction. By altering the patient's outlook on life through addiction treatment, they will be able to stay positive throughout the duration of rehab.

The staff members at A Turning Point have a mission and that is to give patients effective and quality addiction treatment so that long-lasting sobriety can be obtained. The path to a positive future starts on a positive foot and that begins at A Turning Point. Confronting addiction is a difficult thing to do, but it is the most important step in the recovery process. Through professional counseling during the patient's time in treatment, patients will learn coping skills and trigger management which is imperative to the success of maintaining sobriety.

Maintaining sobriety on one's own is extremely difficult, especially when the addict has tried to go 'cold turkey' on their own. This is because it requires medically-assisted detox in order to properly and safely wean the body off of the substance of abuse. This way the body does not go through sudden withdrawal nor experience harsh side effects. A Turning Point can provide patients with all of the necessary tools, treatments, and resources so that patients have every opportunity to succeed in recovery.

Getting treatment is the best option when seeking a life that is free of substance abuse. Get the help required now and start living the best life possible. Contact A Turning Point by visiting aturningpointcs.org now.

I uses to feel fridays and weekends were fun to party on. After 17 of my friends passed away from excessive partying. I need help for a bright future. I came to A Turning Point and decided to live a healthy lifestyle and to accept the fact partying is bad and I need to accept the facts.

I had fun and met new friends and stayed open minded to enjoying life more sober than not. I was thankful to be able to not only complete my deferred sentence but also was happy to seal my record after successful completion and dismissal of my case. I am neber going to drink again.
