The purpose of this first-step assessment is to gain an understanding of your specific situation with respect to your addiction history, physical health, emotional health, and to determine the appropriateness of admission to our treatment program. As part of this process, we might ask to speak with your physician, psychiatrist, or therapist for additional information related to this pre-admission assessment.
Admission can take place immediately following the pre-admission assessment. Upon confirmation of your admission to our program, we ask that you provide a security deposit to reserve bed space for your chosen arrival date.
Payment for the first month of treatment must be received before or upon the patient’s arrival at the facility.
Costa Rica Recovery utilizes ASAM (American Society of Addiction Medicine) placement criteria. We can accept patients up to a scoring range of 3.7. Some patients may enter the facility with a score of 3.7 or less but then de-stabilize up to a 4.0. In such cases we must transfer the patient to a medically managed facility until they are stabilized and can be returned to our facility.
