TURNING POINT-Addiction Services online

Posted on: May 14th 2020

Turning Point are an organisation that can support people suffering from addiction to get the help and support they need. 

From drugs to gambling, addiction is something that can cause major problems within a family but, with the right support and guidance, people can overcome their suffering and rebuild their relationships. 

Currently, there are many people struggling with addiction and how they can break this destructive cycle and lockdown is an additional pressure. Turning Point can help.


Turning Point have a self referral service on their website, so people don't need to go through their GP or anyone else.

Self-referral means they have to fill in the online assessment questionnaire on the website (, and then they will be contacted by a member of the Turning Point team for an appointment, which at first is a detailed assessment of their needs. 

At the moment, all appointments are online or on the phone and can take up to 2 weeks for initial contact to be made. Once the assessment has taken place, a tailored programme will be put in place to support them through their journey of recovery.

Please pass this information on to anyone who is struggling with addiction and wants to help themselves come out of the other side.
