ABOUT TURNING POINT RECOVERY CENTERS
Turning Point Recovery Centers (TPRC), formerly known as Hannibal Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse, provides substance abuse treatment through several Missouri-based locations. The highly structured rehab provides a full range of services, including detox, outpatient care, residential treatment, and programming for individuals who have been arrested for alcohol or drug-related traffic offenses.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Turning Point’s detox unit is open 24 hours a day. Clients may voluntarily admit themselves, but the facility also accepts court-ordered 96-hour holds. While in detox, clients are closely monitored by staff and spend their time resting, watching educational videos, and participating in groups. During detox, clients may not use the phone or meet with visitors.
Residential treatment is gender-separate. Days at both facilities begin at 8 a.m. and end at 8 p.m. Clients participate in a mix of group sessions, individual counseling, group education, structured activities, and 12-step support meetings. The women’s residential program is similarly structured, and daycare for children ages 13 and under is available. Both programs encourage family involvement through designated groups on Sundays, conferences, and family therapy.
Outpatient care blends individual and group counseling, and clients participate in educational sessions and relapse prevention programs. Counseling for codependency is also offered to significant others and participants’ families.
The facility also offers a substance abuse traffic offender program (SATOP), an adolescent diversion education program, a weekend intervention program,
Turning Point’s staff is led by an executive director with 20 years of substance abuse-counseling experience. Staff includes CRADC- and CADC-certified members.

A review submitted by alum D.H. was more positive. It specifically highlighted the educational components. “The program taught me about making a decision for myself and recovery is my own gift. The tools I learned to use gave a fighting chance in the real world and in real situations that may arise.”
