True North Recovery Services, LMFT, MCA, CATC, Treatment Center in Encinitas

Who we are

True North Recovery Services has been in operation for over four years and has established itself as a staple treatment provider for the North County community. True North was founded to meet community need by a local therapist. North San Diego has historically had very few treatment options and True North has been a much needed anchor within the community. Having treated hundreds of North County's finest people already, True North has cemented itself as a vital part of the continuum of care in this area for many years to come.

Daytime Track

True North treats adults with alcohol and/or drug use disorders at an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) level of care. We offer two tracks of IOP. Our daytime track meets from 10:00 AM-1:00 PM on MWF. It has a heavy process focus and has little educationally focused time save for what is needed in the present moment of therapeutic contact. It is primarily designed for those who have struggled with recovery in the past and are trying again. There is a heavy emphasis on relapse prevention and identification of strategies to overcome relapse dynamics. Ongoing recovery planning plays a significant role in this track. It is not unusual for several of the members of this group to also be living in one of many nearby sober living homes. If this is needed, we can help provide referrals to good houses. We are also highly effective at developing adequate long term support structures for our participants. Treatment is not an indefinite process to us and we work hard with you to identify the specific types of support you will need once IOP concludes.

Evening Track

True North also treats adults with alcohol and/or drug use disorders at an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) level of care in the evenings. Our evening track meets from 6:00pm-9:00pm, MWF. This track has been created for those who are hoping to resolve an alcohol and or drug use disorder without having to go away to residential treatment. We provide all of the basic education, as well as delve into processing old pains, traumas, and relational issues. We are able to work with those with co-occurring disorders in either track and members may join either track based on their ability to attend. The emphases are slightly different in each track but the quality of care is not.
