Turning Point House

Hope is available for people with a substance use disorders, and a brighter future in recovery is possible. We believe in treating every aspect of a person’s journey in recovery. That’s why we offer a wide range of services all onsite within our Rehabilitation programs. These include:

  • Substance use counseling
  • Mental health counseling
  • Vocational counseling
  • Family counseling
  • Basic primary medical care

In Rehabilitation, residents receive intensive clinical treatment each day. This can include group counseling sessions, individual counseling sessions, meeting with our onsite medical professionals, and more.

We recognize that everyone’s individual path to recovery is different. Our care reflects this as every resident chooses their own personal recovery goals and relevant recovery groups. Each person’s stay is unique and can vary significantly from a couple of weeks to a couple of months or more. It all depends on what each person needs.

Cazenovia Recovery is proud to be an organization that offers Trauma-Informed Care. Our staff members provide care that is sensitive to past traumas. We also create environments that are safe, trusting, and collaborative. Most importantly, we seek to empower each and every person in our programs.

Turning Point House is located in Eden and can serve 21 men with substance use disorders. The program is licensed by the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services and receives oversight from the Erie County Department of Mental Health.
