Turning Point Counseling Acquired by Kent Agency

December 2, 2017

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Turning Point Counseling Services has been purchased by Kent-based Coleman Professional Services, the company announced Friday. The acquisition is effective Jan. 2.

Earlier this year, Turning Point issued a statewide request for proposal for “the management and future of the agency.” Coleman was chosen among the 11 applicants and has been providing management for Turning Point since early summer.

“We look forward to serving Mahoning County residents and providing quality mental health and addiction services,” said Nelson Burns, president and CEO, in a statement. “Coleman’s goal is to deliver immediate access to services and prides itself on using best practices in order to serve customers with mental health and addiction challenges.”

With the addition of Turning Point, Coleman operates in nine Ohio counties: Allen, Auglaize, Hardin, Jefferson, Mahoning, Portage, Stark, Summit and Trumbull. The company offers mental health, substance abuse, residential and rehabilitation services.

“We know the importance of consistent, quality care and will continue to provide that for Mahoning County customers,” said Tammy Weaver, Coleman vice president and chief officer for Mahoning and Trumbull counties. “We will send letters to all current Turning Point customers, explaining that the transition will be as seamless as possible for them. I want to stress that the doors will be open as they always have been.”

Coleman is looking to hire prescribers, case managers, social workers, counselors, therapists, emergency specialist, prescreeners, nurses and administrative staff. More information on job openings is available here.
