Turning Point to Celebrate Super Heroes In Recovery At Inaugural Birthday Bash



SOUTHAVEN, Miss. (January 27, 2017) – Turning Point is sending out the hope signal in DeSoto County and inviting the public to its first birthday celebration – featuring tours of campus renovations and new additions, a live band, photo booth, food, superheroes and more!


“For over a year now, Turning Point’s residential treatment center has been a resource for the Mid-South community,” says Turning Point Alumni Coordinator Branden Cooper. “We plan on celebrating the hundreds of people who now have a new life in recovery, and providing them with the tools to maintain that gift.”


The celebration holds a special significance for Cooper, a graduate of the campus. Just two months ago, he tragically lost his sister to the disease of addiction. Their father, Bobby Cooper, will be a a speaker for the event.


Also speaking will be alumnus Ron Hiers, who made headlines across the globe last month when he spoke out about his recovery after being videotaped during a heroin overdose on a Memphis sidewalk. The story was translated into 5 different languages, and this will be Ron’s first speaking engagement since his newfound recovery.


The event is superhero themed to honor those who battle the villain of addiction every day. It is free and open to the public.


If you are a member of the media and would like to be present for the event or schedule an interview with Turning Point clients, staff or speakers for the event, please contact me directly at [email protected] or 901.949.7926.
