This place is not a safe haven for boy's. This is suppose to be a treatment center for helping youth boys. But it is NOT this place is a money grubbing place that does not help, that does exactly the opposite. It is a place where they degrade your child and say that it's all there fault. For the staff to make excuses for putting there hands on a child that has emotional and mental issues. The Doctors one specific but wont mention any names. Says that they want the best for your child, but when the child had been there for over 9 months and come to find out after myself and a probation officer insisted that he have a complete psychological evaluation found that he has more than what the doctor said the emotional and the behavioral problems that in actuality was schizophrenia with psychosis that the doctor obviously didn't take the time nor see him like he should have. I don't feel that they did what needed to be done and that my son was worse when he came out. Thank god for the referee saying that he would not be going back there. There was a supervisor that told me the mom directly that these kids didn't belong in this society and that they should ever be let out. How can say that this place is a good treatment center. I surely cant. I hope that whoever reads this, before putting there child in this facility will think twice.
I really hope that I have helped someone.
I also wanted to stat that my sons probation officer will never recommend this place or any referral's she thought that she was putting my child where he would get the treatment that he needed but did not.

i was called today from Georg's assistant at Turning Point asking me to come here and write a review I was more then happy to oblige.
I was a resident at Turning Point in 2008 and although I was only there for a short 2 months I can attest to how much they do for their residents. This is a place that really cares for and does their best to help each and every person they come in contact with.
