Former undercover narcotics officer has gone from battling supply to treated those afflicted
Michael C. Koch, a 19 year peace officer with the Carlsbad, CA police department may have turned in his shield, but he hasn't stepped out of the battle. He is just taking on addiction in the battle line of treatment.
So began Michael's journey into counseling, first as a patient who sought help for his own addiction, and now as the facilitator of the group therapy sessions himself. Patients in addiction treatment at True North Recovery Services (www.sandiegoaddictions.com)
Kansas Cafferty, an LMFT and founder of the program says, "Entering recovery is often about challenging perceptions and misguided beliefs and Michael provides a wonderful opportunity for the patients of True North to really examine their relationship with the world around them. Was I right about this in my addiction or could it possibly have been different than I thought it was?" Because Michael is a gifted counselor this often provides a wonderful opportunity for the patients at True North. This opportunity can be the catalyst for change that is exactly what a person needs. While True North is a private program that is not directly involved with the courts and does not receive refferals from them, it is a fact of substance use disorder treatment that people will often come with presenting legal problems ranging from custody issues, to DUI's to occasional more serious issues surrounding sales.
