Northbound saved my life. I was addicted to drugs for over 16 years. I was transferred to Northbound from Menninger and that’s when my journey really began. I was picked up from the airport by David Gates who has stood by my education and sobriety for the past 17 months. While at Northbound I got my CADAC and learned the coping skills that have made my sobriety successful. If your looking to change your life this place is the best of the best from the accommodations to the groups to the outings and staff. I am forever grateful to have been connected to such an amazing place. You walk onto Northbound Campus and can feel the love.

Northbound saved my life. After twenty-five years of doing drugs, they gave me the opportunity to start a new life. They provided a positive place to stay and grow.

I spent 90 days in Northbound Treatment center last year. This was an excellent experience. I met a lot of fantastic people and was taught how to live a happy life, clean and sober. I was comfortable, well-accommodated, and intellectually stimulated my entire stay in beautiful Newport Beach/ Costa Mesa. Learned how to surf, got to play and record original music in a studio, went to Angels games in Anaheim, meanwhile taking an honest look at myself and taking action to improve my future. Also, my insurance policy covered most of it! (BlueCross BlueShield) I would most definitely recommend Northbound to anyone who is struggling with alcoholism and/or drug addiction like I was.

I was given a safe place to deal with my trauma and my deep-rooted issues that I had pushed down and covered up with drugs and alcohol. My life was unmanageable to say the least, and Northbound pushed me and enabled me to be the woman I am today.

Northbound is amazing and saved my son’s life from a heroin addiction. I am forever thankful for helping me save my son. I would highly recommend this very organized program. The family program also helped a ton.

We looked at a lot of treatment facilities before deciding on Northbound. One reason: They don’t encourage a quick fix. They have everything from inpatient residential to outpatient to working with sober living houses, and much more. Northbound bears in mind that life also happens while in treatment and integrates school or jobs while an individual continues to progress in recovery. What we liked best is that Northbound is not just a one-size-fits-all treatment.

I have a few friends that have successfully gone through this program. I can truly say that the program transformed their lives. Prior to going to Northbound these people were an absolute train wreck. One had spent time in jail, another was stealing from their family to support their habit. Northbound’s staff is very experienced, caring and sympathetic. They understood how to deal with these issues effectively. I have also heard that quite a few of their clients have gone back to work at Northbound, because of the amazing experience they had there.

Once I left Northbound, I moved into a sober living they recommended and continued with IOP (Intensive Outpatient Program) I continued to see my counselor who was a huge part in my recovery. She always was there and always willing to listen and give helpful advice to get me back on track. I love what Northbound has done for me. I am now 4 years sober and I finished beauty school. I have my cosmetology licenses I work full time. I’m also back in collage to get a 4-year degree. 5 years ago, I was hopeless and going nowhere fast. Now my life is going in an amazing direction. I wouldn’t have the life I have today without the help of everyone at Northbound Treatment Center. Thank You.

Northbound provided me the safety, structure, education and accountability that was necessary to provoke meaningful change in my life. They helped me tackle my issues from EVERY angle. This program saved my life, no doubt about it. The staff cares, the program works, and the facilities are exceptional. I would absolutely recommend their program to anyone suffering from addiction or addiction-related issues.

My first and most memorable night in treatment was understandably scary, but the women at Northbound Treatment went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and welcome.

Northbound Treatment Services® is an excellent, life-changing and life-saving program. Having experienced Northbound firsthand, I can honestly state that their facilities are well-maintained, safe and comfortable. Their staff is compassionate, caring, and dedicated to their clients. And the curriculum provides a great balance between 12-step recovery, life skills, and spiritual / religious support if desired. You simply won’t find a better treatment facility in Southern California.

I am so grateful for you all. But all of this is nothing compared to what you’ve done for my son. You have taken a boy, uncomfortable and pained by his own demons, and taught him to respect that body, to pay attention to it, to give it what it needs, to speak up for it and to live in it. I’m amazed by his progress — I honestly didn’t believe it was possible. But you did. You see his heart and he knows it.
