Tom Braddock- Program Director
Tom entered into recovery from various addictions on December 16, 1999. As his relationship with God grew, friends began to ask him to perform their wedding ceremonies. At this time, Tom owned and directed part of a sober living facility for men coming out of treatment. He began to speak at treatment centers and churches about God's love and addiction. As a reverend in addiction, he has given many people hope to come out of the darkness into the light.
Tom began to spend time out in nature with God. He found peace and tranquility while at an animal rescue farm south of Birmingham, Alabama. He began to work with abandoned animals and found deep healing for his own soul. He has since become certified in equine therapy as well as a recovery/life coach and interventionist. His mission is to spread God's love to broken souls.
Tom began volunteering at Turning Point in 2007. In March of 2018, he came on staff as our Program Director and served for a year as the interim Executive Director.
