Michael C. Koch, BS, CADC II, SAP

Program Counselor:. True North Recovery Services. 543 Encinitas Blvd Suite 109. Encinitas, Ca 92024. 760.230.0779. Cell 760.224.6631. www.sandiegoaddictions.com

Michael C. Koch comes to True North Recovery Services with several years of experience in the alcohol and drug addiction field. In the past he has worked as the director for multiple sub-acute detoxification programs and as a counselor at another intensive outpatient program in San Diego. Notably, he also worked under the direct supervision of John E. Milner, MD, a physician and true pioneer in the field of addiction treatment in San Diego County.

In his former life, before becoming a counselor, Michael was no stranger to the consequences and damage brought about by addiction. He spent 19 years of his life serving the public as a peace officer, first as police and then for 10 years as an undercover narcotics detective. As you can imagine, Michael has seen it all and done it all. He is one of the rare and exceptional counselors who comes to the field with a background of harrowing experiences that ground him day in and day out. He knows what life and death look like in addiction as a result of the front row seat that inspired his dedication and career change.
