We are here to guide you every step of the way as you travel from abroad to receive treatment. From the moment you decide to book your flight to when you arrive at the airport in San Jose, we will be with you throughout your entire journey.
Your first day at Costa Rica Treatment Center is when you get settled in, learn where everything is and who everyone is, and find out what is expected of you. On arrival at Juan Santa Maria International Airport (SJO), one of our operators will be there to meet you and bring you safely into the center. The drive is about 15-20 minutes from the airport and our operator is trained to address any questions you may have.
Once you arrive at the center, the journey toward recovery officially begins. The experience, although at times initially nerve-racking, commonly results in one of the most amazing processes you or your loved will ever undergo.
On arrival at the treatment center, our treatment team will be waiting to welcome you. You will meet the clinical director, your assigned case manager and counselor, your psychologist, the social worker, your occupational therapist, the center operators, the nurse, and the medical team. You will begin the admissions process with one of our operators and proceed to meet with the medical team for evaluation.
Based on your unique medical and personal history, the medical team will develop a suitable protocol to follow to help the client stabilize physically and emotionally.
There is no such thing as a typical day at Costa Rica Treatment Center. Each day is different depending on the unique needs and goals of our clients. We offer a therapy-rich and stimulating program that is designed to engage facet of the person and awaken their body, mind and spirit.
