Eligibility for admission to Turning Point of Tampa is based on an intake assessment and medical clearance. To help facilitate admission to a detoxification program or to schedule a consultation, please call our admissions office at 800-397-3006.
What to Expect From The Admissions Process
All clients must complete a pre-screening, and later, a pre-admission assessment. These assessments help determine if an individual is appropriate for one of our programs. Admission is based on, but not limited to, potential clients being 18 years of age or older, medically stable and having a willingness to address their addiction and financial responsibility, whether through insurance or self-payment.
After we complete the admission process, we introduce clients to their respective lodging and our clinical team determines their appropriate length of stay in our program. The minimum stay in our licensed residential program starts at 30 days and can be longer, if needed.
Clients will then meet with an intake therapist to discuss their needs for recovery, diagnosis and family involvement. Clients will also meet their individual therapist and begin working on their recovery by developing an individualized treatment plan that addresses their addiction and the impact it has had on their life and the lives of others.
By participating in group therapy, individual therapy and individualized staff meetings, all clients prepare for their life of recovery. Groups such as gender-specific process groups, Relapse Prevention, Coping Skills, Psycho-Educational and Recreational topics, as well as participation in 12-step groups, will provide all the information clients need for a sustained recovery.
Upon discharge, the clinical team will make recommendations based on a full continuum of care. This may include continued treatment in PHP/Day Treatment or Intensive Outpatient Treatment, sober living, medication management by a psychiatrist, if needed, and referrals to an outpatient therapist for ongoing counseling. Family members can also take advantage of a free Family Support Group and clients are able to attend a free Aftercare Group once they have completed their treatment.
