North County Serenity House, A Program of HealthRIGHT 360 was founded in 1966 to provide substance use disorder services in the community. North County Serenity House provides a gender-responsive and trauma-informed environment, using evidence-based and best practices that recognize and account for the role that trauma frequently plays in substance use and criminal histories of women.

Our North County Serenity House Outpatient Program in Oceanside offers outpatient and intensive outpatient substance use treatment to women and pregnant or parenting female teenagers along with recovery services. Our outpatient services also include homeless outreach in the community.
