I would like to introduce you to Turning Point Recovery Society, one of BCís leading non-profit providers of residential addictions support recovery.

As you are aware, addiction is a devastating disease that negatively impacts every aspect of a personís life including family, friends, co-workers and community. It does not discriminate between race, religion, socio-economic status, or neighbourhood. Societal costs are enormous - families are destroyed, communities are in decay and the economic costs to our health care system are unsustainable.

Turning Point is part of the solution. Benefits of our services include reduced health care, policing, corrections, social service costs and lost productivity costs from absenteeism, disability and premature death.

Why Turning Point?
