Quality Addiction Treatment For Alcohol, Nicotine and Other Drugs in Panama Discovering that you or a loved one have a problem with alcohol, nicotine, marijuana, other drugs, or sex and gambling can be a very upsetting event.

90 Day Extended Treatment Programs

Panama Mola as seen near Serenity Vista Drug Rehab

90 Day Extended Treatment Addictions take time to form – and time to resolve. That’s why we offer 90 days extended treatment programs. People that commit to, and complete full 90 day extended treatment programs, really see a complete transformation in their lives. These people have time to integrate what they are learning, for it to become part of who they are. Recovery is not an intellectual exercise. Heart learning takes longer. ~ John Derry When did you become an addict? Do you remember the day it happened? Like many alcoholics & addicts, struggling daily and living from one relapse to another, probably not. You are unable to trace the roots of your addiction back to a single event. Instead, addictive behavior creates and solidifies patterns over long stretches of time. It is like a canyon widening and deepening for millennia. The…

How Do I Get My Mom Into 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 unfortunate friends, I know…

Addiction Recovery Gratitude

Addiction Recovery Gratitude – Spiritual Imaginings How Did You Like My Stuff? Guest Blog on addiction recovery gratitude by Ron Young This small story about addiction recovery gratitude has helped me through some difficult periods. It is a short but hopefully thought provoking tale. You have to open your mind a little just to hear this “what if” proposition. Keep in mind that most theologians agree that any description of God is a distortion as he/she is beyond human comprehension. Imagine “what if,” when you die, you find yourself sitting across the table from man that looks like a cross between Charlton Heston, in the 10 Commandments, and Santa Claus. As he grins and leans forward he says: “I don’t care what you did or didn’t do during your life. What I really do want to know is: How did…
