Salvation Army - Turning Point Programs
is a nonprofit rehab located
in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Salvation Army - Turning Point Programs specializes in the treatment of
substance, drug and alcohol abuse.
Substance Abuse Treatment Centers focus on helping individuals recover from substance abuse, including alcohol and drug addiction (both illegal and prescription drugs). They often include the opportunity to engage in both individual as well as group therapy.
Opiate Addiction Treatment Centers specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.
The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.
The Sub-Acute Medical Detoxification unit provides peer support, Master’s level therapists and medical care for individuals who present a need for supervised withdrawal from alcohol and drug abuse. Medical staff, including physicians, are available twenty-four hours per day, seven days per week. The average length of stay is three to five days.
Those admitted to Turning Point Programs for Detox will be monitored by medically trained staff, medicated as appropriate for pain, provided a daily balanced diet and special nutrition regiments if necessary and educated on chemical dependency.
Buprenorphine Detox and Treatment
Similar to methadone, buprenorphine is a drug meant to help with long-term treatment for opioid addiction. Those recovering from heroin addiction or other opiate addiction may be prescribed buprenorphine (Suboxone and Subutex) to help wean the body off of opioids safely, over time. Buprenorphine helps lessen the discomfort and danger of detox and withdrawal.
Vivitrol used for Addiction Recovery
Vivitrol has proven to be extremely effective in the treatment of opiate and alcohol abuse, especially when complimented with an effective rehab program. Vivitrol is a non-narcotic, non-addictive medication approved by the FDA that is used to suppress a person's cravings for a substance.
Naltrexone is often used along with psychiatric counseling and social support to treat individuals undergoing drug or alcohol rehabilitation treatment.
What does Salvation Army - Turning Point Programs offer?
Intensive Outpatient (IOP)
Intensive Outpatient programs are for those who want or need a very structured treatment program but who also wish to live at home and continue with certain responsibilities (such as work or school). IOP substance abuse treatment programs vary in duration and intensity, and certain outpatient rehab centers will offer individualized treatment programs.
Non-residential services offer individuals the ability to carry on their daily responsibilities and attend group or individual therapy and educational lectures multiple times throughout the week. This therapy is designed to be a beginning of a continuation of treatment in order to allow individuals to further develop the skills to maintain long term recovery.
In addition to serving as a primary treatment modality for clinically appropriate adult men and women, this program is ideally suited to work with three important special populations:
1. Relapse Consumers who have already had the benefit of previous residential services and therefore do not need additional treatment of that 24 hour intensity, but who still require ongoing structured care during the early stages of their recovery.
2. Women with family responsibilities who cannot be away from the home for overnight residential treatment, but who still need intensive outpatient intervention.
3. Working Persons whose employers and/or benefit plans will not permit them to take time away from work and who can only receive treatment during non-work hours.
Residential (inpatient) Treatment
The Short-term residential level of care is designed to stabilize and treat individuals who have a substance use disorder or are in need of a co-occurring capable service. This service offers an intense level of care with a seven day per week clinical treatment regimen. Individualized treatment plans utilize group therapy, educational lectures, AA/NA meetings, continuing care planning and referral. The length of stay generally ranges from five to thirty days.
Those admitted to Turning Point short term residency will be monitored by medically trained staff, medicated as appropriate for pain, provided a daily balanced diet and special nutrition regiments if necessary, evaluated based on need and referred to an outside program if needed.
Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
Many of those suffering from addiction also suffer from mental or emotional illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety disorders. Rehab and other substance abuse facilities treating those with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder administer psychiatric treatment to address the person’s mental health issue in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation.
12-step programs are addiction recovery models based on Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). A number of substance abuse programs (including some drug and alcohol rehab centers) use the 12 steps as a basis for treatment. Beginning steps involve admitting powerlessness over the addiction and creating a spiritual basis for recovery. Middle steps including making direct amends to those who've been hurt by the addiction, and the final step is to assist others in addiction recovery in the same way. 12-Step offshoots including Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Dual Recovery Anonymous (DRA), Sex & Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA) and Gamblers Anonymous (GA).
Research clearly demonstrates that recovery is far more successful and sustainable when loved ones like family members participate in rehab and substance abuse treatment. Genetic factors may be at play when it comes to drug and alcohol addiction, as well as mental health issues. Family dynamics often play a critical role in addiction triggers, and if properly educated, family members can be a strong source of support when it comes to rehabilitation.
Rather than focusing solely on addiction, holistic therapy facilities treat patients in terms of their whole being. Holistic therapy is about more than just addiction and sobriety – it addresses the person’s life in its entirety, including career, physical, familial, and spiritual aspects.
In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.
Trauma therapy addresses traumatic incidents from a client's past that are likely affecting their present-day experience. Trauma is often one of the primary triggers and potential causes of addiction, and can stem from child sexual abuse, domestic violence, having a parent with a mental illness, losing one or both parents at a young age, teenage or adult sexual assault, or any number of other factors. The purpose of trauma therapy is to allow a patient to process trauma and move through and past it, with the help of trained and compassionate mental health professionals.
Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members.
