The Power of Acceptance: Embracing Change for a Brighter Future
Where can English-speaking people living in Latin America go for alcohol and/or other drug rehab? For North American and European ex-pats or natural born Central-American citizens who speak English, there is an oasis of hope and healing in the temperate highlands of friendly Panama.
So, whether from Panama, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala or Belize, Serenity Vista offers world-class drug rehab for the treatment of alcoholism and other forms of addiction. Now, English speaking expats and natural citizens of Latin America have access to excellent help for addiction close to home.
There are loosely three groups of North American ex-pats. Each group can find their way to issues with alcohol or other drugs. No group is immune.
Many people look forward to retirement for decades! Central America is a natural choice for many retiring North Americans. Central America is beautiful! Whether the beach or the mountains, the country or the sparkling cites like Panama City, Panama, everyone can find their preference of place. A retirement pension can go a lot further in Central America.
People can find themselves in an unending ‘vacation’, lying about the beach or socializing in the cities. The thing about vacations is the penchant for increased consumption of alcohol. We see variations of this common story.
Once the scheduled and structured days of work have disappeared, drinking and socializing, or drinking alone, can insidiously take over. Many retired men and women are surprised to find alcohol has gained control of their lives. Additionally, marijuana or weed use involves risks with the law, and risks with the underground of people who deal drugs, which can compound an already deadly affliction.
These often high-powered business people are moving to bright cities with expense accounts. The stories we hear usually involve clubs and casinos. Cocaine, Ketamine, KGB, escorts and gambling mixed with feelings of loneliness and isolation can turn deadly very quickly.
With good internet, these folks work digitally with their electronic devices anywhere in the world. They are usually in their 20’s or 30’s. These expats tend to congregate in the places with great surfing or other recreational opportunities. Substance use is usually alcohol, nicotine, cocaine or marijuana. If that young person is an addict, the addiction can also manifest anywhere in the world.
English speaking Latin Americans have very few choices for addiction treatment in their own countries. We have found most Central American Rehabilitation Centers to be very clinical with white coats, hallways, locked doors and cafeterias. Costa Rica being the exception with a few much more relaxed and loose facilities. Central American people’s addiction treatment choices historically have been clinical hospitals in Colombia or travel to Miami or Israel for treatment.
People that need addiction treatment from these four groups of people are relieved to discover good treatment for addiction in Panama. Serenity Vista has been operating quietly in Boquete since 2012. A unique model of recovery that treats the whole person in an individual way. Helping just four or five people at any one time, each guest has a tailored program within the structure of a comprehensive, holistic treatment program.
