What are local treatment professionals saying about True North?

Kansas Cafferty and the team at True North Recovery Services have been providing quality recovery service for many years. Their high level of integrity, professionalism, care and compassion for individuals and families has made it a pleasure to collaborate with. I will continue to refer to them for many years to come! Sara Gilman

Kansas is one of the most genuine and gifted therapists I have known in over nearly two decades of practice. He is an innovator in the field of addiction treatment and his program is among my first choice for intensive outpatient program referrals in the San Diego area. I recommend Kansas and True North Recovery Services without hesitation! Julieanne Myers

I have worked in the field of alcoholism, addiction, and related issues for 25 years as a private practice therapist. I am truly grateful that Kansas and True North Recovery are in North County. I have referred numerous clients to him… and I’m REALLY picky! His follow-through is consistent and absolutely professional while being personable. I have referred clients to him of varied addictions, ages and socio-economic status: they have all gotten a lot of help from working with him. I am particularly pleased about how Kansas takes it to an even more impressive level: he and his staff consistently weave and personalize a client’s recovery into all of the client’s affairs. It’s my experience that it’s the only way that someone can “keep” what they learn in treatment/therapy. This, in my opinion, is one of the many reasons that his work is so successful. I couldn’t recommend him more highly. Ali McReery
