Turning Point Alternative Living Solutions (TPALS) is a licensed, outpatient counseling center offering drug, alcohol, gambling and family counseling.

Our treatment modalities seem to be most effective when practiced in conjunction with a twelve step program.  It is our belief that there are no substitutes or more effective ways of treating addictions, then a twelve step program. We propose to provide noological understanding and guidance, meant to enhance the recovery process.  We are committed to presenting all the armamentarium necessary to recover.  Be cautioned, often parents, spouses and significant others tend to minimize the prodrome phase.
