Expanded Turning Point Center opens in Burlington

BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) There's a new safe space for addicts in recovery In Burlington.

The expanded Turning Point Center opened its doors Tuesday. The $700,000 property features activity rooms, an art studio and more space for peer support.

Turning Point has been in Chittenden County for 15-years and officials say it helps nearly 3,000 people every month. People like Dana LeClair, who says she owes her addiction recovery to Turning Point.

"I suggest do it. I mean, I overdosed twice the last time. I overdosed. I was gone for six minutes -- I had to be defibrillated. I wouldn't be sitting here right now if if it weren't for rehab and Turning Point, I really wouldn't be. Rehab got me sober, Turning Point keeps me sober," LeClair said.
