The North Coastal Live Well Center Opens in Oceanside

The County of San Diego opened the new North Coastal Live Well Health Center in Oceanside on Tuesday, offering behavioral health treatment and recovery services and resources for military and veterans.

The center is located on the site of a former County facility and will eventually house a public health clinic that’s slated to open in spring 2019.

Three mental health programs will be located on site.

  • The North Coastal Mental Health Clinic will provide counseling, case management, employment services and outpatient mental health medication management for those 18 years and older with a serious mental illness.
  • The Mariposa Clubhouse provides member-driven social, rehabilitative, recovery and vocational services for adults with a serious mental illness.
  • The North Coastal Regional Recovery Center provides outpatient substance use and disorder treatment services for adults.

The mental health center and clubhouse are operated by Mental Health Systems, Inc. and the recovery center is operated by the McAlister Institute.

The center also includes a Military and Veterans Resource Center that will connect veterans with resources and benefits. It will also host several community-based organizations dedicated to assisting veteran and active duty military.

A large conference room is also available for community use in the facility.
