Our Mission

The Turning Point Halfway House in Washington, Pennsylvania, has served the Washington community since 1991.  The trust in the original mission of service to women in recovery has been steadfast and unwavering.  Over the last nineteen (19) years, the goals of founder, Patricia J. Lutz, M.Ed.; C.A.C.; C.E.D.T., have been upheld by the strength of the organization.

The Turning Point at Washington has served some one thousand (1,000) clients at its residential treatment facility on North Main Street.  Most of these clients have been women from Washington and surrounding counties.  All have benefited, some more than others, from our drug and alcohol treatment program.  Our most recent internal studies show that over 40% of our clients served during 2008 remained drug-free and 'coined out' as they successfully completed our program.  A benchmark in which we take particular pride!

More, however, needs to be done to preserve these past gains.   To that end, the Turning Point is excited to announce  that  the Turning Point Women with Children Program, "Julie's House", is officially open.  This is a six month, specialized program for pregnant women and women with children up to four years of age. Click for more information...

Our ultimate goal is to expand the opportunity for more women to be aided and supported in their recovery.  To not advance service availability would be a disservice to our mission and our professional ethics. Our "Come Home to Heal" initiative has strengthened our resolve to address an inequality that has had a profound effect upon individuals in recovery and their economic futures.   

The Turning Point is here for the next generation of individuals who need our support; you can be part of our commitment by contacting us at 724-228-2203.
