About Us

Turning Point Center of Addison County is located on 54 A Creek Road next to the recreation center in Middlebury, VT. Our center is one of 12 peer recovery centers in Vermont that focus on support for individuals and their families seeking recovery from substance use disorder and other addictions.

Our recovery support services help people rebuild their lives and become productive and engaged members of society. Volunteers and staff provide peer support, evidence-based services, educational programs, and recovery training in a safe and supportive environment. The Center is staffed by trained, knowledgeable people with a vested interest in recovery–primarily volunteers–who can connect individuals to appropriate community resources and offer one-to-one support. Turning Point Center regularly collaborates with other community organizations in an effort to help reduce redundancy of current community programs and provide the widest possible range of services and supports.

Funding for Turning Point Center is an investment in reducing incarceration, recidivism and other social expenses. Perhaps most importantly it is an investment in our future and quality of life. At current funding levels, keeping just one person out of prison for a year nearly pays for one center’s entire annual state grant. Our need for more funding support from our community has grown tremendously over the years as the depth of, and demand for, our services has increased.
