Turning Point Foundation is a registered society under the Societies Registration Act 1860; Government of India. TPF started its operations by establishing its first centre in 2002, to provide services free of cost to all the drug addicts who can’t afford to pay any treatment charges. To financially sustain them they started their second centre which is a paid centre in 2006, after having seen a demand from the families to have better facilities for the patients and the willingness to pay for it. The rehabilitation centre provided the beneficiaries with a healthy environment where they can live with dignity and respect. TPF endeavours to include and integrate beneficiaries into a stable and homely environment, enabling them to lead normal lives with daily routine tasks being performed every day. The rehabilitation centre treat drug addicts by adopting a threefold approach focusing on preventive, curative and creating awareness of healthy lifestyle which makes it stand out among other rehabilitation centres. To realise this aim, TPF follows a holistic approach consisting of multifarious activities such as education, healthcare, skill training and performing various tasks of daily life. Yoga, meditation and Nature Cure were also a integral part of the life of the inmates.
