What is Turning Point?

Turning Point is a residential program that offers help to people who suffer from life controlling addictions such as substance abuse, depression, etc. Our program has served the Tri-State area for over 13 years, maintaining a success rate over 75%. Turning Point aims to use our successful model we’ve established to impact cities and communities across the country. Turning Point’s holistic approach to recovery has helped even the most desperate cases, be totally transformed and set free.

In a time when drug addiction has affected 3 out of every four families in America, Turning Point has consistently stood on the front lines. Through the program, outreach and prevention campaigns, Turning Point has been a positive force toward reversing the harmful effects of addiction in our communities.

” ..through their various ministries, Turning Point stands as a beacon for anyone who desires to chart a new course. They are truly assisting people to discover and nourish a meaningful life in their community”

Our Story

Turning Point was formed over 13 years ago in Bristol CT. What began as one home with a few men, blossomed into in a national program which has facilitated healing and restoration for hundreds of men and women.

In 2006, Under the guidance of Executive Director John Muratori, Turning Point received national recognition from the Bush Administration as the a model faith-based rehabilitation center.

Recently we have begun offering services to the Dallas-Fort Worth community!

What is Turning Point?


Our approach to rehabilitation and restoration begins with a philosophy that addresses the person as a whole. We recognize that drug and alcohol addiction are the fruits of a failed root. The likelihood for relapse becomes heightened without addressing the root issues that often exist in a person’s life.We have pioneered a treatment philosophy that identifies and addresses five root areas of addiction. Our mission is to see individuals become cognizant of these five major areas.  Our model addresses the physical, emotional, psychological, relational and spiritual issues that can keep a person bound to the cycle of addiction.

We utilize a variety of techniques and counseling to help identify and address the events, ideals, perceptions or beliefs that lead each person to unhealthy and harmful outlets. We have found that relapse is decreased tremendously through the development healthy coping habits, natural accountability, and treatment of the broken areas that lead to addictive behaviors.


Unlike other programs, Turning Point offers services to individuals who not only suffer from addiction, but have been diagnosed with mental health concerns or illness. Many times, recovery is hindered by the existence of such issues. That is why through a staff of clinician and various partnerships in the mental health field, we are able to provide the best possible solution to meet these types of needs.
Turning Point is a long-term residential program. While there are many short-term programs available, often
these types of programs only deal with the symptom of addiction and are unable to change the root behaviors that lead to the re-occurring addiction.


For this reason, Turning Point offers a 12 – 15 month program. The program is divided into multiple phases, giving students more freedom, benefits and responsibilities as they successfully navigate through each phase.
Our final phase, aims to provide students with accountability and direction to successfully re-enter society. Our model drastically reduces the relapse, by providing accountability and counseling even after graduation.

Turning Point has been developing an accelerated program on an outpatient basis to help individuals who are unable to commit to the full program due to family or work related responsibilities. Currently offered in Dallas-Fort Worth area, this program is for special cases and has an application process. After an initial assessment, we will  decide whether or not the applicant is a good candidate for the accelerated program.

The outpatient program incorporates counseling, case management, mentorship and a custom recovery plan for each individual who applies. Leveraging community resources, our staff designs a plan that addresses the candidate from a holistic view, and works with them over a specified period of time determined by our assessment of the need.

To start the process, in your email to us indicate that you are interested in the accelerated out-patient program and we will arrange an initial assessment.
