Group Homes

The purpose of Tahoe Turning Point's Group Home Program is to provide a structured, family-like and consistent therapeutic community atmosphere. The foundation of our program is to provide individualized treatment plans that include both private and group counseling focusing on drug and alcohol recovery, mental health counseling and independent living skills. All clients are expected to work towards becoming clean, sober, and productive citizens. 

Tahoe Turning Point Group Home facilities are an RCL-10 which provide a structured, family-like community atmosphere, incorporating outdoor activities, educational options, drug and alcohol counseling along with mental health therapy. Physical, cultural, and social interactions designed to build client’s self esteem while introducing alternative living styles are integrating uniquely to each house’s program in order to provide positive, new experiences. Clients focus on their desire and commitment to work towards a personal turning point in their lives through individual counseling or group counseling focusing on drug and alcohol recovery, independent living skills. There is a strong emphasis on personal responsibility for decision-making, personal choices and consequences and positive change. 

The fundamental value of the Tahoe Turning Point Group Home program is to offer alternative means to achieve completion of personal goals important to each client’s overall success.
