In 2005, TurningLeaf Wellness Center was formed. A commitment made to provide quality, affordable treatment with the best interest of individuals in mind was the motivation to open a multipurpose center which provides a variety of services. There are three areas to the company (Mental Health, Substance Abuse and TurningLeaf Seminars). All areas share the same mission and create TurningLeaf Wellness Center as a whole.
