Welcome to the
Upper Valley Turning Point

The Upper Valley Turning Point is a community center for people in recovery from addiction and addictive behavior. Located off Route 5 at the Wilder/Norwich border in eastern-central Vermont, the Turning Point provides a safe, substance-free environment populated by people in recovery who offer peer support seven days a week at no cost to the consumer.

The Upper Valley Turning Point functions as:

• a staffed drop-in center
• a meeting location for a variety of recovery groups
• a place for substance-free recreation and fellowship
• an information and referral resource
• a resource for education and community support
