the recovery model

At Turning Point, we believe the Recovery Model of treatment provides the foundation for a successful journey towards recovery. The following principles are the tenets of this method:

Hope - Having a vision that includes hopes and dreams and setting realistic goals to achieve those hopes and dreams.

Support - Realizing the value of drawing on support from friends, family, healthcare professionals and others in the recovery journey.

Personal Responsibility - Relying on oneself, with help from others, while working to control one’s symptoms, and making choices that reflect one’s goals and life priorities. Empower individuals to manage their own behavior.

Self-Advocacy - Expressing oneself with courage, determination, and persistence in a clear and calm manner in order to get one’s needs met.

Education - Taking responsibility in learning about one’s health, wellness, symptoms and treatment in order to make good decisions.

Spirituality - Finding a meaning and purpose in one’s life based on one’s own values and beliefs.
Through the use of these foundational principles, we aim to provide care that:

supports recovery;
achieves treatment goals;
enhances the quality of life;
ameliorates or eliminates symptoms;
increases functioning and integration into the community and family.
