Turning Point at MidHudson Regional Hospital

Individualized, expert treatment for the chemically dependent

Turning Point at MidHudson Regional Hospital is a comprehensive not-for-profit chemical dependency treatment program in Dutchess County, New York.  Established in 1985, Turning Point provides inpatient medically managed detoxification from alcohol and all other types of substances as well as inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation and a variety of specialized intensive outpatient programs, outpatient counseling, and groups.  All services are licensed by the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS).

The program provides a structure that will allow the individual to regain control of his or her environment by participating in daily activities and making positive decisions regarding the use of leisure time. The aim is to allow the patient to function with a measure of success that will result in a greater ability to take control and responsibility for daily living. 

Chemical dependency is a family disease.  Turning Point believes in outreach to families and supportive friends and co-workers.  We respond to the needs of affected children and address family dynamics that are associated with addictions.

As a full-care treatment center, we teach sobriety through hope, dignity and respect.  We focus on the whole person through physical, psychological and spiritual health and emphasize the need for support to live a full and healthy life.

  • Women’s intensive outpatient program (four days/week)

Individuals in the intensive outpatient programs receive one-on-one counseling, group therapy and educational activities that include films, reading, speakers and homework assignments.

In addition to attending education programs, addicts' family members are encouraged to participate in counseling and to follow guidelines that keep the home environment drug-free and safe for the recovering addict.

  •  Dual focus (chemical dependency and mental health) intensive outpatient program (five days/week)

Our dual diagnosis intensive outpatient program focuses not just on the addiction and plan for sobriety but also on identifying and processing the emotional issues that so often accompany addictions. The program also centers on the devastating impact of addiction on the mind, body and spirit of the individual, as well as the family involved. Our philosophy is that addiction comes hand-in-hand with emotional issues.  We believe it is vital to treat both in order to maintain health.
