Patient and Staff Safety Is Priority No. 1 for Costa Rica Recovery

To protect our patients and staff, we have implemented many robust safeguards, including constant cleaning in all common areas.
In addition to testing, our safeguards include monitoring patients and staff temperatures and comprehensive protocols for food safety, cleaning and disinfecting. We also provide protective masks to patients and staff, as well as other needed personal protective equipment. In addition, we have moved a third of our workforce to home offices and rapidly expanded virtual services to reach the growing numbers of people and families whose substance use and mental health concerns have grown amid the pandemic.

The response from patients has been extremely positive. Not only are they grateful to access care for their potentially life-threatening addiction but also for the peace of mind knowing Costa Rica Recovery is doing everything we can to protect them from COVID-19.

While our outpatient, mental health, family and children’s services have transitioned to virtual platforms, our facility continue to accept patients into residential care and recovery housing. Our safeguards have successfully kept COVID-19 from spreading in our facilities, and patients have frequently mentioned feeling safer in our care than they do anywhere else.
We have raised our vigilance to implement all the safeguards we can to keep COVD-19 off our premises, while focusing on the treatment and recovery of addictions. Going forward, Costa Rica Recovery will continue to be aware of emerging testing alternatives and procedures, with patient and staff safety as our # 1 priority.
