Rise Above Program

 RISE ABOVE IT TOGETHER 

Who can I call for support with recovery and sobriety in North San Diego County?  

Here at the North County LGBTQ+ Resource Center we seek to provide referrals to organizations that are not only competent in providing services to our community, but are also safe and free from social stigma. Opioid recovery programs noted here have completed an LGBTQ+ competency training with the North County Resource Center. 

Treatment is never one size fits all…

Medication is one part of a program that includes counseling and case management. MAT providers working to meet the needs of the LGBTQ+ community also address any underlying elements that may have caused an addiction. This is instrumental to the recovery process. Programs tailored for the LGBTQ community show better outcomes because they address unique factors such as homophobia/ transphobia, bullying, family problems, violence, sexual health, homelessness and social isolation.  Let’s Rise Above It TOGETHER.

  • Equality
    American Foundation for Equal Rights ​ The American Foundation for Equal Rights is dedicated to protecting and advancing equal rights for every American. As the sole sponsor of the federal court challenge of California’s Proposition 8, known as Perry v. Schwarzenegger, AFER is leading the fight for marriage equality and equality under the law for every American. AFER has assembled a legal team led by Theodore Olson and David Boies to demonstrate that Proposition 8 violates the U.S. Constitution by denying millions of people equal protection under the law. 6565 Sunset Blvd, Suite 400 Los Angeles, CA 90028 Email: mail@afer.org --- California Rural Legal Assistance (CRLA) ​ Each year, we provide more than 40,000 low-income rural Californians with free legal assistance and a variety of community education and outreach programs. Half of our resources are committed to multi-client cases that grapple with the root causes of poverty. The impact of CRLA’s litigation has touched the lives of literally millions of low-income individuals, improving conditions for farm workers, new immigrants, single parents, school children, the elderly, people with disabilities, and entire communities. It has also been necessary to bring our advocacy to a national audience in order to maintain our ability to address the more political and controversial issues we find in rural communities. We have a specific program, Proyecto Poderoso, that seeks to educate workers and their families about LGBTQ issues, including the right to be free of harassment and discrimination. ​​ 215 South Coast Highway, Suite 201 Oceanside, CA 92054 Phone: 760-966-0511 Fax: 760-966-0291
