About Us

Turning Point Recovery Center is the best private drug and alcohol treatment center in Albuquerque, New Mexico dedicated to treating addiction. Our primary focus is to help you get your life back on track. The experienced and caring staff at Turning Point Recovery Center will treat you with respect, understanding and compassion. We accept commercial insurance and at our affiliate, Focused Recovery, we accept Medicaid.

Turning Point was founded in 2010 by Paul Tucker, a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselor and businessman. Paul formerly founded and operated Focused Recovery of New Mexico from 1997 to 2006. Focused Recovery was a successful rehab center which later became The Right Step. Turning Point Recovery Center was founded as a high quality, multi-faceted, medically supported, abstinence based treatment center and has successfully served over one thousand clients. Turning Point has also recently added an Inpatient, residential Detox treatment house, and an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for Medicaid clients, which bears the original Focused Recovery name.

All our locations are staffed with licensed professional counselors and medical staff. The variations in the staff member’s backgrounds and training all come together for an integrated experience for the client. All of Turning Point’s staff operates from a client-centered focus with the goal of sobriety through abstinence.

People often wonder if the staff and counselors at Turning Point know about addiction only through education or also through experience. In other words, are our staff former addicts? The answer is, some are not, but most are former addicts. Amongst our staff and counselors are alcoholics, sex addicts, drug addicts, food addicts, anger addicts, and more, all of whom have “trudged down the road of happy destiny” to a life of sobriety. If we can do it, so can you!

Clients and family members will also find that the physical environments operated by Turning Point are aesthetically pleasing, comfortable, confidential, and conducive to recovery. Both our inpatient and outpatient facilities are designed with the comforts of home while still maintaining professional and medical offerings. We take confidentiality as more than a federal regulation, but as a sacred client right and a matter of respect. While at our facilities, you can be sure that your presence and everything you say and do in recovery will be kept strictly confidential. This is one reason you might notice we use noise-cancelling machines in all our hallways.

Our Promise
If you’re ready to give recovery a chance, Turning Point is ready to help you. We will take care to help you gain insight, understanding and clarity regarding your needs. Our goal is to give you the opportunity to discover a life free from addiction. Turning Point Recovery Center and all our dedicated staff will be there for you.
