Recovery is possible. Period.
We know how dangerous the disease of alcoholism and addiction can be on both the individual level and for all who care for them. We believe there is a solution.

Our holistic and integrated healing program is designed to treat the mind, body, and spirit through a powerful trifecta of evidenced-based psychotherapy, holistic energy work, and 12-step programs.

At Costa Rica Recovery, our guests reside in a safe, supportive and comfortable environment where each treatment plan is created according to individual needs.

We prioritize love, acceptance, and fun rather than restriction and condemnation.


Which Treatment is Most Effective In Treating Addiction?

Every person experiences drug addiction differently, so there’s not always a one-size-fits-all approach to treatment. In general, the most effective approach involves a personalized treatment program. Rehab specialists develop these individualized plans to specifically address a client’s unique addiction profile and recovery obstacles. These plans incorporate addiction therapy services—such as CBT, DBT, and ACT—as well as additional programs—including sessions, mindfulness and meditation, stress reduction training, relapse prevention, anger management, addiction education, and coping skills training.  

It’s also important to consider the model of treatment that alcohol and drug addiction treatment centers use. A model of treatment refers to the way the provider views addiction, which helps guide their approach to treatment methods. For example, the highly-effective Modified Minnesota Model of Treatment views alcoholism and addiction as a chronic no-fault disease that is best addressed with unconditional acceptance without judgment, complete abstinence, and treatment of both the mind and body. The model also relies heavily on family involvement, education within the community, group work, and a 12-Step philosophy to produce successful results.

Our Views on the Disease of Addiction:
  • Alcoholism and Addiction can affect anyone; it does not discriminate.
  • Alcoholism and Addiction is an illness.
  • Alcoholism and Addiction is a no-fault illness.
  • Alcoholism and Addiction is a multiphasic illness.
  • Alcoholism and Addiction is a primary illness.

Addiction treatment without involving the insurance industry

Costa Rica Recovery’s addiction treatment services offer a balanced, individualized approach to help you achieve long-term sobriety. In addition to extensive therapy and education resources, our rehab center will provide you with numerous resources for stability and growth—including group counseling, anger and stress management, mindfulness and meditation sessions, and AA meetings in Costa Rica

By residing in an international rehab, you’ll be able to start fresh and enjoy a new perspective that the welcoming, foreign country offers. You’ll also be able to stay clear of the distractions and judgment that you might experience when entering a local rehab program in your hometown.

And of course, Costa Rica Recovery makes the experience more revitalizing by providing a clean living environment that’s nestled within a tranquil and vibrant natural setting. 

While Costa Rica Recovery offers all these luxury support resources, enrolling in our drug addiction treatment program doesn’t come with a high price tag. In many cases, the cost of stay is only 25% of the price that US-based luxury rehabs charge. We’re also eligible for VA benefits, allowing veteran clients to further minimize the cost of addiction recovery services.
