Dear Jim and crew!! I just want to take this time to really thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you did for me during my time at Costa Rica Recovery. I am happily and gratefully one year clean today. And it seems an appropriate time to really pause and take stock of just how far I've come in that time and where i started my journey. I look back at my time in rehab with honestly nothing but the fondest of memories. Rehab maybe seems not the kind of place one particularly enjoys haha but when I think back or have little flash backs from my time there…. I smile and remember it as nothing but the best experience. It has only been with time, sharing and seeing other people’s journeys and experiences in rehab, that I think I've fully grasped just how special it is what you've got going there. I feel very fortunate to have started my journey in recovery with you guys....
Miss you all very much. Celebrated six months on the 25th of February. Studying personal training, working, yoga and working my program. Things are good. Tell all I send my love. Thank you so much for what you guys did for me while I was there. You all mean a lot to me. Peace and love.
After many attempts at rehab, I found that Costa Rica Recovery's sound approach at treatment with a tough love philosophy was what i really needed in order to get started on this life long journey a day at a time.
Thank You!! I would like to celebrate my sobriety, and birthday by saying thank you to Andrea Lázaro, that without your patience, understanding, and LOVE my story would or could have been not as pleasant. To Jim Dopps at the Costa Rica Recovery Center, and the staff that attended to me, helped to brainwash me into living clean and loving life and all its ups and downs. Tomorrow I celebrate second chances, people who care for others with illnesses like the one I suffered. I truly would not be able to celebrate them without these precious people and organizations. Thank you for my 5th year, and I celebrate my 50th year with you.
