Panama, Central America Treatment for Alcoholism

Recover From Alcoholism or Other Addiction in Boquete, Panama Addiction is epidemic. Across North America, Canada and the United States, and in the UK, Europe, and Central and South America, city morgues and emergency rooms cannot keep up with the rising death toll. This is compounded by the devastating health and socio-economic impact of the covid19 panemdic. The result is a collective pain, sorrow, and suffering for the lost, and the loss is a dark oppressive, low-lying cloud. Compounding the tragedy of alcoholism and other drug addiction, including the heroin/opioid/oxy epidemic, is the explosion of patient brokering and unethical rehabs. Patient brokering loosely is when an addiction recovery drug rehab actually pays a third party large amounts of cash for clients. The combination of huge numbers of available addicts, willing insurance payouts, and hungry rehabs, the financial temptation of corruption…

Christmas-in-rehab - Serenity Vista private international holistic rehab

It May Be Your Best Idea Yet to Spend Christmas in Rehab! We wish you a Merry Christmas. Bah Humbug! That’s a sentiment expressed by many people at this time of year. The pressures can be unbearable for such a joyous time, even more so for addicts and alcoholics, even if they are sober in recovery. But Why? Old Wounds Cut Deep Let’s forget about the stresses of buying gifts and how much to spend and cooking and baking and finding the time to do it all. Instead, look deeper into the issues of why Christmas is such a difficult time for the active addict or alcoholic, or the clean and sober addict in recovery.

How Do I Get My Mom Into Rehab?

Treatment Abroad for Drug Rehab

How Do I Get My Mom Into Rehab? Mom Drinks Too Much Growing up, Mom was always fun to be around. We had lots of people around the house, and she was a great hostess for parties. My friends all liked Mom and the casual atmosphere of our home. Alcohol was almost always the substrate of the fun. There was a lot of booze – but it seemed under control,(controlled drinking) and only on weekends. And vacations. Lots of vacations. I thought all families were like this, and it wasn’t until my early adulthood that I began to see things differently. I Don’t Drink But I Understand Alcoholism I’m lucky; I don’t even really like the taste of alcohol. However, over the years I have learned a whole lot about alcoholism. Watching my family members and some friends and business associates,…
