Parents: On the 2nd and 4th Monday night of each month, there is a free open parent support and education group for any parent of a pre-adolescent/ adolescent in the community who wishes to attend at the Turn About, Inc. facility. The purpose of the group is to work on challenges and successes in parenting children who are in crisis or who are struggling behaviorally, academically, socially, etc. These meetings begin at 5:30 and last approximately one hour.
Please let us know if you plan to attend by calling 850-671-1920; or fill out the contact form and let us know you are planning to attend and on what night.
Intensive Outpatient Programs: Turn About's Intensive Outpatient Program is a minimum 21-week program, with a built-in aftercare component for children aged 11-13 (Middle School IOP) and adolescents between the ages of 13 and 17 (High School IOP) who are experiencing behavioral and/or substance abuse problems. The programs meet every day after school at Turn About for approximately 3 hours, during which time youth participate in individual, family and group counseling. Doctoral and Masters level counselors work closely with the young person and his or her family to prevent or eliminate adolescent substance abuse, improve self-esteem, create effective discipline, and improve family communication. Services are available on a sliding fee scale.
Outpatient Services: Turn About offers weekly outpatient counseling to children, adolescents, and young adults experiencing a wide variety of problems including but not limited to substance abuse, behavioral problems, depression, anxiety, anger, and family issues. Evaluation/ assessment services are also available. Services are based on a sliding fee scale.
School Suspension Program: This program is an alternative consequence for students who would like to reduce the length of their out of school suspension from ten to five days. The program consists of a brief evaluation, which extends over two sessions. At the end of the second session, appropriate recommendations are made for further treatment, counseling, or chemical education if necessary.
* School Intervention Program: This program provides free on-site assessment and referral services in Leon County Schools to students who are referred for behavioral or substance abuse problems.

Free on-site counseling by Master's level counselors is provided to children who have been abused, bullied, or neglected. Counseling, clinical consultation, and free legal services are available to the student and his or her family as well.
* Chemical Education: This free educational series offers teens a comprehensive look at today's most commonly abused substances. Classes are appropriate for teens who are at risk of experimenting with drugs or alcohol, as well as teens who have used these substances. The physical, social, and psychological consequences of using drugs are discussed, and the legal ramifications of substance use are clearly stated in terms teens understand. Classes can be held at Turn About or within the schools.
College Student Services: Turn About provides individual counseling for young adults who are struggling with substance use/ abuse, sexual assault, relationship problems, grief issues, suicidal issues, childhood abuse trauma, etc. Sessions are also appropriate for students who are experiencing unusual levels of stress including issues of attendance and academic decline.
