Opening Hours :
At Costa Rica Treatment Center clients are exposed to 4 different phases of treatment in one single experience. As the person navigates through the program of recovery they are given the ability to assume more responsibility over their own journey. This key difference enables us to better prepare our clients for lasting recovery. Find out more today.
On arrival at the treatment center, our board-certified medical doctor conducts a full medical evaluation and develops a drug and alcohol detox plan, if necessary. If hospitalization is required, arrangements are made. During the drug and alcohol detox phase our focus is to eliminate the withdrawal symptoms by making the client comfortable and cleansing the body from all chemicals and toxins. This process is essential and medical supervision is required as withdrawal symptoms can result in excruciating physical pain and depending on the severity of the case may even result in death. We provide the necessary assistance to ensure the client’s safety and comfort at all times during this process. During this phase of treatment, the focus is to heal the physical body and begin nourishing the mind.
The client meets with their assigned treatment team including a clinical psychologist, addictions psychiatrist, therapists, addiction counselor, recovery mentor, spiritual mentor, to discuss the client’s history and treatment needs in detail. Considering the client’s individual case, a personalized treatment plan is developed, outlined, and approved by both the client and the treatment team.
During this phase, our focus is to uncover the underlying issues and ensure the client becomes fully aware of harmful cognitive patterns, attitudes, and behaviors that result in drug addiction and alcoholism. We make sure the client is educated on the disease of addiction and alcoholism and begin to introduce evidence-based therapies and treatment modalities.
During this phase of the development, the client starts to shift from self-centeredness, entitlement, victimization, and dishonesty toward an attitude of gratitude and responsibility. We ensure the client receives a combination of treatment methodologies throughout the day including group therapies, individual therapies, educational lectures, addiction counseling, spiritual development sessions, physical activity and a well-balanced nutritional plan.
During this stage of the program, clients are given more liberties and are required to assume a proactive attitude toward their recovery. We begin shifting the responsibility back to the client and carefully monitor the client decision-making skills. This phase gives our clinical staff the non-communicative information needed to determine the concepts have been thoroughly absorbed throughout the previous treatment stages and expose areas that still require some work. At this point in the development process, we begin focusing on the reintegration stage and defining a program of action that works for the client. We help on restoring the client’s relationships with people, places, and things and focus a great deal on building self-esteem and self-respect.
During the final phase, the responsibility is shifted entirely unto the client and our focus becomes the complete reintegration into the mainstream of life. We give clients the freedom to develop their own vision of sustainable recovery. Realistically speaking, recovery will look different from person to person, but the principles rarely vary. Our clients are encouraged to develop a healthy daily routine and work the program in a way that suits them. With the guidance of the clinical team, they are given the opportunity to develop their own unique schedule and are required to follow through and finish strong.
During this phase of treatment, the clinical team monitors the clients progress closely and conducts ongoing assessments to ensure steady improvement. Studies show that by integrating this essential part into the overall treatment program the possibility of achieving lasting sobriety increases exponentially.
Traveling abroad to receive addictions treatment is an effective way to remove the client from toxic environments, negative influences and dangerous situations resulting from addiction to alcohol and other drugs.
Costa Rica is an ideal country for clients seeking drug and alcohol treatment as it offers many benefits. The Costa Rican government demands proper accreditation from healthcare service providers. Costa Rican law requires treatment centers obtain approval from the Ministry of Health and the National Institute of Alcoholism and Pharmacological Dependency (IAFA) ensuring the strictest standards of professional care.
Costa Rica has also become one of the most sought-after travel destinations due to its ideal climate, biodiversity and nature exploration. At Costa Rica Treatment Center, as part of the overall treatment experience, we take advantage of our natural surroundings by taking our clients on field trips to nature filled destinations where we provide the opportunity to experience outdoor sober fun activities. We believe that Costa Rica’s scenic setting offers great therapeutic value and use it to our client’s advantage.
Costa Rica offers world-class beaches and mountain areas; however, we purposely chose to locate our drug and alcohol treatment center in the heart of the upscale neighborhood of Rohrmoser. We find the client is best served when they are surrounded by a strong recovery community. Costa Rica Treatment Center is located only minutes away from English 12 step meetings.
Coming to Costa Rica Treatment Center is the best decision you or your loved one will ever make.
