Programs & Resources

Our Programs

Recovery Coaching

Recovery Coaches work with people who are experiencing addiction, people who are actively in recovery, or with people who are concerned about someone else’s substance use. For short-term or long-term support,  a coach helps people to: create a vision for their recovery; identify and remove barriers to recovery; navigate through the human services system; access community resources; connect with recovery services, including treatment facilities, recovery centers, mutual support groups; and help motivate change in any part of life. Learn more about Recovery Coaching by calling 802 388-4249 or emailing info@turnignpointaddisonvt.org now!

Impaired Driver Rehabilitation Program

The Impaired Driver Rehabilitation Program (IDRP) (formerly known as Project CRASH) provides people convicted of driving under the influence with the opportunity to openly examine facts about alcohol and other drugs, and discuss the role these substances play in their life. If you are convicted of driving under the influence, you must successfully complete the IDRP before your privilege to drive can be reinstated. If treatment is required, you must successfully complete a treatment program with a licensed alcohol and drug counselor. The program evaluator (CARTER Vermont) will explain the process and requirements at your intake evaluation. For more information or evaluation, please contact Rick Barnett;

Mindful Recovery (formerly Refuge Recovery)

It is a community of people dedicated to the practices of mindfulness, compassion, forgiveness, and generosity, using meditation and kindness to heal the pain and suffering that addiction has caused in their lives and in the lives of those around them.

Recovery Friendly Yoga

“A come-as-you-are yoga practice for anyone needing a safe, non-judgmental space to move, breathe, or just be. I’ll offer class in the same sequence every week so that you know what to expect. I’ll invite you to do gentle joint movements, conscious breathing, flow sequences, strength-building shapes, a little more breathing, and a short rest to finish up. I’ll move through the class with you and offer options throughout. No experience necessary. All are welcome!”

Writers For Recovery

Writers for Recovery helps people discover the power of the written word to process trauma, build self-esteem, and support healthy, sustained recovery. Their work has helped people across Vermont gain new perspectives on addiction and recovery. And it’s helped reduce the stigma of addiction by showing that people in recovery can make valuable contributions to their communities and lead rich, fulfilling lives. Addiction has devastated our communities, pushed our healthcare systems to the limit, and torn countless families apart. In such an environment, the need for recovery resources is more important than ever. Writers for Recovery’s goal as an organization is to expand their work of Writers for Recovery across New England so that they can provide more support to help individuals and communities win the battle against addiction.
