What happens when I refer someone to Turning Point services?
They will be contacted via phone to have an initial screening assessment completed to see what support the client needs and if there are other options for the clients recovery. During the phone call, we will complete a brief assessment and ascertain what their treatment goals may be and explore the reasons for seeking treatment. We will explain the different options available and talk through what might be helpful. If the client is treatment ready then they will be booked in for a full assessment where a full care plan will be created and ‘next steps’ goals made this. Assessment normally takes 1-2 hours and is completed by a Recovery Worker.
Please contact us on the Suffolk number 0300 123 0872 for referrals. The lines are open Monday to Friday 9am-5pm. Outside of these hours, please leave a message on our answer phone and we will aim to contact you the following day.
