So many initiatives have been made possible with a goal of overcoming or ending the problem with drug addiction. Through the years, solving this dilemma has been so challenging. It seems like each year, it is getting worse and the number of people getting affected by it is constantly increasing. Good thing that there are organizations that are trying their best to put an end to this problem. Just like Project Turnabout that is making a lot of progress in overcoming addiction.
In 2018, Project Turnabout released a book reflecting on the history of our organization. The motivation for this book was based on the belief that who we are today is founded by those that came before us. We wanted to recognize the staff members who have impacted the organization over the years and decided the names and positions be listed together in no order or hierarchy.

In putting together this history book, information was gathered from past and present Board members, a myriad of people who received our services over the years, and interviews with current and former staff, including the late Bruce Bottge, whose notes were especially helpful. We knew to go in that this was not going to sell a large number of copies – that was not our intention. Our intent was to record and share the paths we have traveled and lessons learned with future staff, Board members, and other interested parties.
What stood out through the creation of this book was the strength of the organization in its ability to stay focused on the mission while continually adapting, improving, growing, and expanding our services. (Special thanks to the Granite Falls, Marshall, Redwood Falls, and Willmar communities over the years who have supported us.) The past year has been one of transition for us and a time to examine how we do things given our growth and size.
