Our Staff

Staff members of Turning Point of Tampa are dedicated to our clients and providing supportive therapy and state of the art modalities to help each and every person who comes through our doors find a pathway back to a healthy and productive life.

Our treatment team includes psychiatrists, registered nurses, master’s level therapists, licensed mental health counselors, a registered dietician, social workers and certified addiction professionals.

Many members of our team are alumni of Turning Point, having returned to our campus to help others experience the program that changed their lives. Having already been down the road that others are about to travel, they can offer invaluable insight and vision every step of recovery. They have already found the turning point in their lives; they are now committed to helping you find yours.
