- Chemical Dependency Treatment
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.
The Turning Point Detoxification Unit is in an acute care hospital setting and provides a protected environment in which patients may safely withdraw from alcohol and other drugs, and begin to heal physically.
Medical staff are prepared to manage all medical complications as patient safety is our primary concern. We are skilled in the management of withdrawal from substances including alcohol, opiates and prescription pain medications, benzodiazepines and designer drugs.
The Turning Point Detoxification Unit utilizes a full range of pharmacologic agents to tailor treatment to the patient’s individual physiologic needs.
The counseling staff provides support, education and discharge planning for patients as they re-enter the community making appointments with and referrals to appropriate aftercare programs.
Westchester Medical Center MidHudson Regional Hospital is a tobacco-free campus. We are always happy that you can visit your loved ones at MidHudson Regional Hospital. We know the best road to recovery is to see the faces of our friends and family when in the hospital. However, we do ask that you keep your in-room visitation to two visitors per patient, and each must be at least 12 years old.
