Turning Point Recovery Residences


[block]0[/block] The Basics

Founded in 1997, Turning Point Recovery Residences is a non-profit organization that operates four sober living homes in Nashville, Tennessee. Catering to both men and women, these transitional programs are designed for clients who have completed an inpatient or Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and require that residents attend regular 12-step meetings during their stay. Many also attend local outpatient drug and alcohol counseling as well.

Accommodations and Amenities

Of the four Nashville locations, one is designated for women and the other three are for men. The female house, on Raymond Street, opened in 2001 and has five bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The Lutie and Valeria Street houses for men are within three blocks of each other and were opened in 1997 and 2001, respectively. The Lutie house has five bedrooms and two and a half baths while the Valeria house has seven bedrooms and three full baths. The Riverside house for men,  Turning Point’s flagship residence since 1997, has five bedrooms and two and a half baths. In all, Turning Point Recovery Residences can accommodate approximately 52 clients: 16 women and 36 men.

Each home has relatively basic accommodations including a a common sitting area with comfortable couches, carpeted floors and spacious kitchens. All homes also feature a “show willingness” bedroom that has four bunk beds that clients share before graduating to larger double rooms with more privacy. The Valeria, Raymond and Riverside houses have front porches, fenced in backyards and patios. Each location is within walking distance of public transportation, grocery stores and neighborhood AA/NA/CA meetings.

Rules and Regulations

To qualify for one of the Turning Point Recovery Residences, clients must agree to sign a behavioral contract requiring them to get a sponsor within their first week of residence and complete all 12 steps during their stay (a minimum of 90 days). Other rules include obeying all house curfews, becoming gainfully employed, attending regular house and 12-step meetings and completing assigned chores. Though residents are initially limited in their interactions with the opposite sex, more privileges can be gained as they progress through the program. Each home also has three on-site staff members who help direct meetings and oversee house operations. Smoking is permitted in designated areas.

In Summary

Turning Point Recovery Residences are structured, 12-step based sober living environments that are geared to promote long-term sobriety, independence and personal responsibility. Though not frivolous, the homes and programs of  Turning Point Recovery Residences come with a respected history in Nashville and strong relationships with a number of local treatment facilities. For men and women who have completed primary care are are in search of affordable continued support, Turning Point Recovery Residences is a solid choice.
