Lights go on at New & Eclectic Program In Georgia
Turning Point Hospital in Moultrie, GA has expanded its program menu to meet the acute need for trauma stabilization services for women. The program, designed to deliver highly individualized treatment for women severely impaired by traumatic experiences, geared up in mid-July. Since that time, rarely has one of the inpatient facility’s ten beds been empty. Patients receive a full range of treatment services which include daily group therapy, recreation therapy, and three individual sessions per week.
