Addiction Treatment Programs in Mission Viejo

At Turning Point Treatment Center, our residential and outpatient program ( IOP ) is designed specifically to meet the needs of people struggling with addiction at various stages in their addiction and recovery. From the first day of detox through the entire aftercare process, our highly trained and compassionate staff is on hand to support our clients and their families throughout the treatment process. Our innovative treatment plans partnered with ongoing support allows our clients to not only overcome their struggles with substance abuse, but to build a life of recovery they’re truly excited about.
Our addiction treatment programs include:

Inpatient Detoxification

Turning Point offers a medicine assisted ( MAT ) drug and alcohol detox that allows clients to move through the early days of sobriety safely and without the troubling detox symptoms that often cause clients to abandon treatment. Upon arrival, clients will meet with our staff physician to do a thorough intake of their history with drug and alcohol use and devise a plan to detox them safely and comfortably. Depending on the length of abuse and substances used, medication may be a part of the prescribed detox plan.

A typical detox takes 3 to 7 days, during which clients have around the clock care from our trained and supportive staff. Clients are also allowed contact with friends and family to gather additional emotional support throughout the detox process.

Inpatient Treatment

At Turning Point, we offer 3 options for inpatient treatment:

Turning Point is located in beautiful Mission Viejo, CA, just minutes away from the gorgeous Orange County Coastline. Our treatment center offers our clients the chance to step away from the pressures of their day-to-day lives and immerse themselves in a serene, supportive, recovery-oriented environment.

Our highly individualized treatment plans incorporate evidence-based therapies, including the 12 steps, to help our clients better understand and heal from their addictions. Our treatment plans teach clients about the disease of addiction, allow them to explore how alcohol and drug addiction has negatively affected their lives and helps them come up with actionable plans to live a life of recovery and avoid relapse.

Therapies include both group therapy and individual counseling to help our clients address the physical, psychological, social and spiritual aspects of addiction and recovery. Group therapy allows clients to gather support from their peers, build confidence and better express emotion, while individual therapy will give them the opportunity to dig deeper into the contributing factors of their addiction, begin the healing process and get the tools they need to live a life of recovery.

Family Program

Addiction is a family disease, and in order to successfully treat it, the entire family needs to be involved. At Turning Point Treatment Center, we offer a comprehensive family program that allows the family to get the education they need to heal their family, set appropriate boundaries and support their loved one during and after treatment.

During this intensive weekend workshop, families will have the opportunity to participate in both group and individual sessions with their loved one, learn more about the disease of addiction and how it affects families and begin to work through the damage addiction has caused them and their loved one.

Intensive Outpatient Program

The Intensive Outpatient Program is a gathering treatment program for individuals with relentless or intermittent co-happening issue that require a more concentrated level of care because of side effects. This could be because of an intense period of the turmoil as well as emergency or progress from an inpatient office to a network setting. The program is custom fitted to meet the interesting needs of every person, particularly those with co-happening challenges (conduct medical problems and substance utilize/mishandle history). The objective of IOP is to enable members to help their own particular recuperation, adapt all the more adequately, avert backslide and fortify social connections through treatment.

In each of our residential treatment programs, clients are surrounded by an “experimental environment for living”, where they have the opportunity to utilize their recovery skills, practice living independently and form healthy, sober friendships with other clients and alumni. Our staff offers therapeutic feedback to help our clients evolve their behaviors to offer the highest chance of success post-treatment.

Aftercare services are provided to all Turning Point alumni at no charge. Alumni meet at our facility on a weekly basis for a staff-facilitated group session, which focuses on processing issues that arise in each client’s life post-treatment.


While results will vary based on the individual, we’re proud of our success rates at Turning Point Treatment Center. Studies show that 89% of Turning Point’s clients remain drug-and-alcohol-free six months after treatment, and 100% of clients surveyed report “improved quality of life” as a result of their time at Turning Point.
