Welcome to the website for the
Turning Point Center of Central Vermont!
Helping people find, maintain, and enhance their recovery from alcohol and drug addiction through peer support, sober recreation, and educational opportunities.
The Turning Point Center of Central Vermont is open Monday – Friday from 10 AM to 5 PM and Saturday from 12 Noon – 5 PM. We are also open from 9:30 to Midnight on Saturday night.
Join Our Board of Directors
It takes a lot of work to support our mission to serve the recovery community. Our board is made up of committed people in recovery and people who are supportive of people in recovery. The board of Directors oversee the work of the staff and guide our mission. They do so by helping with fund-raising, reaching out to the community, monitoring our financial picture, managing promotion, and more. If you think you’d like to help, please feel free to attend a board meeting, typically held the third Monday of each month at the Turning Point Center of Central Vermont; we meet from 6:00 PM to 7:15-ish . Please contact the center for details or just stop by on April 15th.
We’re looking forward to offering more events and more programming! We couldn’t do it without your support. Thanks for all you do to support our center and the local recovery community.
