Turning Point Peer Recovery Support Center began providing Peer Recovery Support Services in 2019 in the Center of the Walpole Community. This peer model connects individuals and his/her/their families in recovery to our strong peer community that offers unconditional acceptance, support for ALL Pathways, resources, education, and community connections.
The Center staff, all who are in recovery, are available to offer support, no matter what recovery pathway is best for you. We welcome all who seek a safe and supportive environment and offer access to community connections, educational resources, sober activities and so much more. The lives of everyone connected with the Center have been touched in some way by substance use. Together, we are committed to sharing these experiences in order to build a strong, safe and connected recovery community.
Who are we?
We are the new face of recovery. We are a community of peers, each with a heart for recovery. Many of us are in recovery. We are also the friends, family members and allies of loved ones who have experienced a substance use disorder. We are here for hope. We are here for change.
Our Core Values
