SOUTHAVEN, Miss. (January 26, 2018) – Turning Point is celebrating its second year providing people a safe place to live while finding their path to recovery in northern Mississippi on Friday, January 26.


In 2017, the treatment facility in Southaven, MS helped hundreds of people turn their life around by not only treating the client’s addiction but any other underlying causes that may be associated with the disease.



Since opening the residential center in 2016, Turning Point has treated thousands of people living with an addiction. According to the Mississippi State Department of Health, the number of drug overdoses in the state nearly doubled in 2015 from 2011 and 24% of those deaths were heroin or fentanyl related.


“Our country is in the middle of the deadliest drug overdose crisis in our history, with overprescription of opioids being at the root of the crisis. It is killing tens of thousands per year, and is estimated to kill hundreds of thousands over the next decade,” said Turning Point CEO, Dr. Ted Bender. “The hard working and dedicated members at Turning Point and all of our treatment facilities around the country are working tirelessly to make a difference and are saving lives every day.”


Turning Point’s Go for the Gold in Recovery celebration will include tours of the facility, guest speakers and live entertainment.


Key guests expected to attend are Desoto County Sheriff Bill Rasco, Vertava Health CEO Brent Clements and Turning Points Dr. Bender.


If you wish to attend, the Turning Point staff will offer tours of the facility from 12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. and speakers will speak with guests at 1:30 p.m.


Please RSVP before the event so we can accommodate any interview requests with staff, clients and alumni.
