Turning Point Treatment Center, Inc.

23331 El Toro Rd, Suite 102, Lake Forest, California, 92630
At Miracle Recovery Center, we believe that connection, balance and daily action is the recipe necessary for a life lived well free from addiction. We believe that addiction treatment isn't just about quitting drugs and or alcohol and remaining abstinent, but about recovering your entire self and creating a new life worth living, a life of freedom. Our treatment program is not solely about relapse prevention or substance abuse education, although included. It's about digging deeper emotionally and working through the trauma or unmet needs from childhood that may have caused the addiction to begin with along with creating joy-filled opportunities to find your true purpose and feel happy again. We believe that working through these stressful issues with an experienced professional in a safe and confidential setting, provides the healing necessary to remain drug and alcohol free for a lifetime. We know that a new life awaits any individual willing to have an open mind, the ability to trust, and the desire to be of service and share their experience with other who are struggling. In doing so, an individual can stay sober and find their true purpose, enjoying life one day at a time.

  • Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

    These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
  • Intensive Outpatient

    Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.

I was convinced that I would die with a needle in my arm until I found a new way to live at Miracle! I can't believe all that I went through and have overcome. The doctors and employees actually believed in me and if it wasn't for that connection that I was able to make at Miracle I wouldn't be celebrating my 1 year on Friday 12/01/2016 I wish I could celebrate in Southern California! One staff member told me that I didn't have to use ever again if I didn't want to and he was Right! I love everyone at Miracle!! I wouldn't be who I am today without you guys!!

Miracle saved my life. This place is amazing. I was strung out on xanax and heroin. My therapist is like a mini Buddha. I was not into religion and im still not really but he helped me find my spirit. I can live again. I have no desire to use anymore.

This is the 12th treatment center that I have been to. I have been sober for 2 years now and before going to this place I hadn’t even been able to put 90 days together. The staff and owners are beyond amazing! I still talk to them on a regular basis. I would encourage anyone who want to save their life and become part of something great to give Miracle a chance!!
    I love Miracle Recovery Center. This place is awesome. The Staff is great. My therapist is the best therapist I have ever had and trust me I have had a lot. This man is a changin and Miracle has helped with that more than I ever could have Imagined.
