Often the best way to advertise a service such as that provided by The Turning Point, New Zealand’s leading boutique drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre, is to listen to the heartfelt thanks of the people who have benefited from their recovery programme.  For instance, this is from Phillipa.

“I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart, you saved my life! When I first found out about The Turning Point, never in my wildest dreams did I imagine I would be sitting here a few months later on day 30 of sobriety. Since being here I've learnt things about myself that are and will continue to heal my soul. I was a mess when I arrived and I now feel truly strengthened. I'm not cured but you have shown me the tools I need to maintain my sobriety. I am so extremely grateful for the effort and energy you have all put into me, I will feel like a new person!”

The following letter is from an anonymous 28 year old. “I came to The Turning Point completely broken. I have tried recovery before but could never seem to feel happy, clean and sober. I needed medical detox. I range multiple facilities to be told that they would ring me back on Monday, or there was over a month waitlist to get in. Pete picked me up that night and took me straight to The Turning Point.

I feel he saved my life that Sunday. I woke up the next day feeling very at home. I was introduced to the 12-Step Programme and met lots of very inspiratonal people. My attitude towards sober life changed and at 29 I finally feel like I’m learning how to live clean and sober, and can now enjoy life.

Without The Turning Point, I know I wouldn’t be where I am today. I still visit regularly and am always welcomed. I feel like once a part of The Turning Point family, you are always a part of the family.”
