Project Turnabout Honored with Award from Association of Behavioral Health

Published On: October 30th, 2017Categories: News, Spectrum Corrections

On Friday, October 20th, the Spectrum Health Systems team traveled to Boston for an exciting event – the annual Association of Behavioral Health (ABH) Salute to Excellence ceremony. This year, one of our residential treatment programs, Project Turnabout, won the “Excellence in Best Practices” award. As a long-time provider of addiction treatment dedicated to providing the highest quality of care, it was an honor for our staff to be recognized for their outstanding accomplishments by the leading behavioral healthcare advocacy organization in Massachusetts.

ABH Awards

Located in Weymouth, Mass., Project Turnabout is a long-term residential treatment program for adult men with substance use disorders seeking to turn their lives around. For many, that means overcoming homelessness, previous incarceration or gang affiliations. Within the walls of Project Turnabout, Spectrum clinicians foster an environment of acceptance as well as accountability.

Individualized care is essential to Spectrum’s approach and our clinicians and counselors are known for going the extra mile to ensure each client has a plan that works for them – both while they’re in treatment, and when they return to the community. Spectrum staff also go the extra mile to acknowledge each client’s accomplishments. Every year, Project Turnabout hosts a graduation ceremony to celebrate clients who have successfully completed the program. Graduates help plan and prepare for the event. The highpoint is when the clients share their personal stories of recovery with staff, alumni, family and friends in attendance.

The program’s success has been recognized by drug courts and probation departments across the state. Today, former clients are actively helping to employ recent graduates of the program and one even works at Project Turnabout.

Thank you to ABH for recognizing our dedicated staff with this much deserved award.
