At Turning Point of Tampa, we understand that it's a privilege to help people redefine themselves through the gift of recovery.

Since 1987, Turning Point of Tampa has been a family-owned facility focused on 12-Step oriented, quality client care on one campus.

Our CEO, Robin Piper, is also our Clinical Director. She is involved in each individual’s treatment experience, chairing our multi-disciplinary staff meeting every day and facilitating our family groups every week.

At Turning Point of Tampa, our programs feature highly-credentialed staff providing real structure, teaching clients how to practice 12-Step principles, in a residential setting where solid group counseling is the keystone. Our mission is to provide effective 12-Step based addiction treatment that is affordable and maintains high clinical standards and quality of care.

We specialize in treating Addiction, Eating Disorders and Dual Diagnosis. We are accredited by the Joint Commission and are a licensed provider of residential, PHP, and IOP programs. We strive to create a “life-like" environment, focusing on recovery through responsibility. To date, we have carried the message of recovery to over 12,000 clients.
