The mission of the Summit County Turning Point Program is to improve the overall quality of life in our community by providing effective court-supervision and enhanced treatment services for substance dependent felony offenders, in an effort to change their behaviors and reduce their risk to the community..

The Turning Point Program is a special court given the responsibility to handle cases involving drug-using/abusing, non-violent offenders, through immediate comprehensive supervision, drug testing, and treatment services, as well as immediate sanctions and incentives.

This Program brings the full weight and co-operative effort of all interveners, namely: judge, prosecutor, defense counsel, substance abuse treatment specialists, law enforcement, correctional personnel, educational and vocational experts, and other community persons, to bear, forcing the offender to deal with his or her substance abuse problems.

DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION COMMITMENT STATEMENT Summit County is a compassionate community that strives to see each citizen thrive. Through the Turning Point Program, our aim is to create meaningful and lasting change. Addiction is an equal opportunity disease. It reaches across age, race, gender, socioeconomic status, and across all facets of life and lived experiences.

Each day our focus is on people; building trust, promoting accountability, and seeing people for who they are while supporting their goals. To ensure our success, best practices in equity and inclusion will be considered in all we do – at all levels of the community and through the resources offered to all clients. This commitment allows us to establish policies and practices that lead to access, opportunity, and a chance for success.

The Turning Point Judge, staff, and all community partners are responsible for intentionally fostering an environment where each individual feels welcomed, respected, supported, and appreciated. We are committed to using our platform to remove systemic barriers that prevent full participation in our program. This can be a “turning point” in life and we are here to help.
