North County Serenity House

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 the lives of the women and men we serve.

Six women founded North County Serenity house in 1966 to help women overcome substance use disorders and attain lasting recovery. That mission continues today with multiple residential facilities in Escondido, CA and expanded offerings that include perinatal and child development resources. NCSH joined the HealthRIGHT 360 family of programs in 2014.

Our specialized treatment approach works with each client to holistically to address their health, emotional, educational, vocational, family, and legal concerns alongside their substance use, mental health, and behavioral issues. Women who participate in NCSH programs are able to reunite with their children, including in-program residency with some children, which creates valuable opportunities for parenting education, family activities, therapy, and healthy bonding and growth within families.

Our treatment and recovery services include includes withdrawal management, individual and group counseling, drug testing (if mandated), drug & alcohol education, recovery planning, case management, and relapse prevention. Our gender-responsive, trauma-informed model ensures that those seeking treatment have a safe and secure environment that promotes recovery and healthy engagement with loved ones, peers, and the community. Clients learn to identify relapse triggers, develop coping skills, and resolve conflicts in order to move through stressful situations that may otherwise have contributed to substance use and related problematic behaviors.
