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.
