Turning Point serves inmates during their final six months of incarceration.
Turning Point operates in three correctional facilities operated by the Oregon Department of Corrections (ODOC):
- The Coffee Creek Correctional Facility serves 54 women in a therapeutic community setting
- Columbia River Correctional Institute serves 50 men in a therapeutic community setting
- Sanitam Correctional is a 25 client out-patient program within the correctional facility
The Turning Point program uses evidence-based interventions to address negative activity and substance dependence. We offer inmates intensive group and individual counseling to help them recover from their addictions and related issues. Turning Point puts a strong emphasis on community reintegration, with focus on referral for housing, employment services and continuing care upon release.
Inmates are referred to the program and eligibility is determined by ODOC staff.
