The problem of substance abuse is not going away.
According to the Vermont Department of Health, we lost 210 Vermonters to drug overdoses last year alone. That is more than the year before, which was even more than the year before that.
The Turning Point Center of Chittenden County provides a free, safe, non-judgmental, and supportive environment for people throughout their journey from addiction to recovery. Real empathy. Real connections. Real solutions. That’s what the Turning Point Center is about and we need your help to keep doing it.
Your gift will support our center and the hundreds of people who rely on our free services. At TPC, we operate with slim margins, and we tackle huge problems. We meet people where they are at, using peer-to-peer solutions and nurturing authentic and meaningful relationships. It’s work that’s worth your support. Our programs are vital and effective.
In the last few years, in response to COVID and the epidemic of substance misuse, we have recently developed new programs to further reach people where they are.
- Low Barrier Outreach – Certified Peer Recovery Coaches are working with individuals throughout the county’s emergency housing system to bridge connections to the recovery community and ease access to treatment.
- All Recovery Meetings – Held throughout the community at nine separate locations, these groups introduce newcomers to wellness and connection, without the emphasis on a specific pathway to recovery.
