Thanks, Turning Point!

I remember walking into Turning Point for the first time and just crying my eyes out. I was very scared and just didn’t know if I could do it. Well, I did, and now have 12 ½ years sober. Turning Point changed my life. I have to admit, though—living with 19 other women was challenging for me. I was the type of drunk that really needed structure to help me get and stay sober. That is what Turning Point gave me. When I was in the house, Judy Bernard worked there, and she was an angel sent from God to me. She really straightened me out. The house is a wonderful place to get sober. There is so much love and kindness there. I was taught to make my bed every day, and I even had to cook for 20 women. I became a civil human being while I lived at Turning Point. I will end in saying that I think Turning Point is one of the best women’s rehabilitation homes that I know of. I would not have the life that I have today without it. Thanks, Turning Point, from the bottom of my heart!

Turning Point…As seen through my eyes… Every morning, while enjoying my first cup of coffee, I purposely look at the “bricks of wisdom” in
