turning point vision
Turning Point Vision
  • ETE in TP
  • Focus on holistic approach to support
  • Acknowledges individual journey
  • Recovery journey – each path is different – transitions do not happen in sequence – i.e. get clean, get a house, get a job –
  • Unrealistic – doesn't always happen in that order and need to recognise and work with that..
  • Focus on partnerships and collaboration – mix of internal and external support
