We are a private non-profit outpatient facility providing professional therapeutic services and substance abuse counseling to South Lake Tahoe and Placerville as well as surrounding areas. We have been serving the community since 1980. The philosophy of Tahoe Turning Point is to provide a structured and consistent therapeutic community atmosphere with both individual and group counseling.  Clients are encouraged to concentrate on their desire to reach a turning point in their lives.  Individual and group counseling that is focused on drug and alcohol recovery, mental health, parenting classes, job and living skills and individual attention to clients’ needs are the foundation for the Tahoe Turning Point program.  There is a strong emphasis on personal responsibility and decision-making, personal choices, consequences and positive change.  All clients are expected to work towards becoming clean, sober and productive citizens.
