Real Stories from Real Residents


Kyle Nelson

I recently completed a 90-day program at Costa Rica Recovery, and I cannot speak highly enough of my experience there. The center’s holistic approach, entwined with the 12-step philosophy, was nothing short of fantastic. From the moment I arrived, I felt a sense of peace and comfort that I had not experienced in a long time.

One of the standout features of Costa Rica Recovery was undoubtedly the compassionate staff. Each and every team member went above and beyond to ensure that I felt supported and cared for throughout my journey. Whether I was struggling with a particular issue or simply needed someone to talk to, they were always there for me.

Another highlight was the food. The meals were delicious, healthy, and thoughtfully prepared. I felt nourished and energized every day, which helped me to focus on my recovery and make progress towards my goals.

Of course, one of the aspects I’m so grateful for of my time at Costa Rica Recovery was the memories that I will carry with me forever. From participating in group therapy sessions to exploring the beautiful country of Costa Rica, every moment was meaningful and special.

Speaking of Costa Rica, it is truly a stunning place. The natural beauty and peaceful surroundings made for the perfect environment to focus on my recovery and reconnect with myself. I am grateful for the opportunity to have experienced this incredible country and all that it has to offer.

Finally, I cannot overstate the importance of learning to love a sober life. Costa Rica Recovery provided me with the tools and support that I needed to make this a reality. I am now more confident, self-aware, and in control of my life than ever before.

Overall, I wholeheartedly recommend Costa Rica Recovery to anyone seeking a holistic, compassionate, and effective approach to addiction recovery. My experience was nothing short of transformative, and I am so grateful for everything that the center has done for me. Five stars, without a doubt.

I had an eye opening time at CRR. My withdrawl process went smooth with medications and round the clock staff, checking on me. After withdrawls, I was introduced to a great staff. Each staff menber was specialy appointed to me based on my needs.

The process was long and hard. The staff helped me, talked me and helped me with any problem that I was dealing with. A Veteran staff member was also avalible to talk to, which was a great help. The eneviornment, rooms and food was very nice. Being in a bad physical state, they always made me comfortable and safe. They helped my understand alcoholism and gave me the tools that will help me in my recovery.

Thank you CRR and Staff memebers.


Aaron Lentz

This place is absolutely amazing. I got my life back because of all the great people that work here. At first I was a little hesitant to travel from the United States to a country that I have never been before. But I knew I needed to make a major change in my life so I decided to go ahead and do it. I could not have been happier with my decision.

So thankful to have found this place and the people here. I highly recommend to anyone needing a change in their life!

This has been one of the most positive experiences in my life. I had been through rehab before, I left sober, but I never left feeling better. What initially stood out to me most was the compassion, spread out by everyone in the building. This is a place of joy and healing. You can hear the laughter and feel the energy when you enter, and it stays with you when you leave.

Ashley Fray

Costa Rica Recovery saved my life. The staff is like my second family. I always felt safe, loved and being guided in the right direction. Of courser the program has the 12 steps included but the new holistic approach is also applied. The combination is powerful, take what works for you. For myself the extra things like Breath work, Yoga, early morning gym works put me back into routine. I will say it was needed because the food is so good I ate way too much.

If you are on the fence but feel you need help… just make a call and speak with the loving staff… most of which have been where you are and recovered


Jennifer Schelter

Costa Rica Recovery helped save my life. It is a scary thing to check into rehab and CRR made this very comfortable for me and soon it felt like home. The atmosphere is very relaxed but at the same time you really get a ton of knowledge and learn the tools you need to stay clean and sober. They provide fun day trips to cool places like the beach, volcanoes and awesome hikes. Between the gym, yoga and awesome food you really start to feel healthy again in no time. I owe the amazing life that I have today to this place!

Entire experience was fantastic. Came into Costa Rica Recovery skeptical, hopeless, and seemingly helpless. Through the love, care, and dedication of the entire staff I was able to undergo a psychic change that has enabled me to realize and experience that recovery is possible and attainable.
