When I got to Turning Point I was desperate and seeking insight into a poisonous situation. I was standing at the edge of despair and hopelessness, against a set of circumstances I had no idea how to cope with. I was progressively getting worse. Everyday my obsession with drinking was getting worse, never better. I was completely dishonest with myself and others. I was up against a solid wall of pain with darkness was closing in.
Turning Point put me back on solid ground, brought me back into the sunlight and gave me a mental tool box to open up and use daily. What else can I say? We end up in joy, that is, as long as we put forth the effort and time and walk into the sunlight.
"Addiction is such a difficult disease to treat, yet I can't imagine anyone being more committed to making a difference than the team at Turning Point of Tampa. Everyone we met was great, from admissions to the business office, residential and outpatient counselors, nursing and the family group leaders. This is about as skilled and caring a group of people as you’ll ever find in this area. I hope addiction never touches you or your family, but if it does, we recommend Turning Point of Tampa. "
"Turning Point of Tampa has truly been a place for dramatic life changes in me. It has been only through this program that I was able to admit my disease. Without it, I would have certainly continued toward a path of grave destruction."
"Turning Point has truly been just as the name says… my 'turning point'. After many years of addiction and chaos, through the program at Turning Point and efforts and support of the entire staff, I leave here with the tools to live a happy, meaningful life. Thank you to everyone here for saving my life."
"This program saved my life and that of my family."
“I was dying when I got here and you brought me back to life. I was greeted with smiles and hugs and this felt good. I worked hard and did what you told me, trusting the staff and the process. You are all in my heart. I am going to the next step of recovery. Turning Point was my home.”
"Thank you for all your help and support. I initially came here in total denial but Turning Point opened my eyes and led me on my road to recovery. I will forever remain indebted to this program and its staff."
"We were saddened and shocked after our daughter who had ten good years of sobriety again succumbed to alcohol abuse. Our anxieties and worries had long faded away and our family was intact.
Thankfully, our daughter recognized that she needed professional help. After researching addiction treatment centers, Turning Point of Tampa kept coming up as best in class. We are happy we chose them because not only have they helped our daughter find recovery, but it has made a tremendous change in our entire family. Out daughter might not be here today and our marriage would be finished.
Through the weekly follow up Family meetings that are offered we have learned that the disease affects the whole family. We have also learned that by staying out of the way of the addict as well as taking care of ourselves, we have made improvements in our lives."
"My loved one's treatment was successful because Turning Point of Tampa helped him get to the emotional and psychological issues causing his dependency issues. It also was instrumental in my own recovery by means of the weekly Family Support Group."
"The family group has given me hope, education and support. I've learned so much about addiction and how it impacts me and my family."
