Encinitas, CA Intensive Outpatient Alcohol and Drug Treatment Center Expands to Meet Community Needs
True North Recovery Services Intensive Outpatient Program will be adding an additional track to meet overwhelming community need in Encinitas, CA for quality substance use and co-occurring disorder treatment services.
Due to ongoing demand from the community, True North Recovery Services is happy to announce it will be expanding to begin offering Intensive Outpatient Treatment Services for Adults during the evenings. For the past 4 years, True North has been providing intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) for adults exclusively during daytime hours. True North’s Executive Director Kansas Cafferty says, “While we have always admitted any adult who was appropriate for the IOP level of care, the majority of our patients have historically been referred by residential treatment programs or local sober living homes, many of whom were either unable to work in the past, or were on a self-directed hiatus from employment to focus on recovery. This is not always feasible for everyone due to other obligations, and True North has consistently referred out to other programs that provided similar levels of care for those whose employment or other lifestyle obligations prevented them from participating in a day-treatment program. Many of these individuals had to travel considerably further than they would have liked due to a lack of availability of these types of services in North San Diego County.”
The lack of reasonably good treatment programs in North San Diego has been a consistent theme for professionals in the field for many years. Often private practice therapists and physicians in North County have referred their patients to residential or inpatient programs when IOP may have been enough due to the fact that there just wasn’t an appropriate center for people to go to when they wanted help. This expansion of programming fills a vital community need in North County.
True North will continue to provide daytime IOP services on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10-1, but will also be adding additional evening hours from 6pm-9pm for those who would prefer it. We are happy to announce that this is effective starting immediately. All of our treatment services are provided at our offices in Encinitas, CA. We accept PPO Insurance plans as well as private pay patients.
