The Stark Reality of Relapse
Relapse kills... SO LEARN TO HAVE FUN IN RECOVERY
Sometimes we think everything is going great and we're enjoying the gifts of life. Using could be the furthest thought from our minds, but at some point we take our recovery for granted, we're oblivious to the fact that we may be moving closer to a relapse.
We want to avoid relapse at all costs because, the truth is relapse can kill, even if we've been clean for years. We hear about it all the time, don't we?
We go to meetings and we noticed that the coffee maker is missing, only to find out that he made that fateful decision to pick up and overdosed. This is one of the stark realities of being in recovery and having the disease of addiction.
The problem is many of us think that would never happen to us. But the truth is, it can happen to anyone. I doesn't matter how much time you have, or how involved in the program you are.
The disease is sneaky, and it works on us during our weakest moments. Many of us, brimming with pride are afraid to admit that the thoughts of using have been tempting in private.
We don't want to let people think we're weak. So we keep it a secret and hope it goes away, and sometimes it does. But, for some it festers and little by little it grows into this giant monster that hijacks our bodies and minds,
Then we find ourselves doing the unthinkable. Picking up again knowing that it will destroy our lives. Unfortunately for some, we end up like many before, dying with our music still in us There's no need for us to succumb to the same fate. There is a solution.
Costa Rica Recovery has adventures that can short-circuit the thoughts of relapsing. Here's just a few of the things we do to remind us life is great without drugs
Recently Costa Rica Recovery and patients took a wild adventure to Corcovado national park. It's a long bus ride near the Osa Peninsula, and from there it's a 20 minute boat ride where you arrive at this oasis that can only be described as heaven on earth.
Our master of ceremonies Larry Hustler plans our adventure for the next few days. The minute you arrive you forget about everything and your catapulted into the present moment by the sheer beauty of the surroundings. All of a sudden the ideas of using substances are replaced with the healing beauty of nature.
It's a moment to wallow in the pure bliss, and peace and quiet of nature. We're also afforded the luxury to bond with each other on a deeper level with the backdrop of the crashing waves. It's in these moments that we realize that there is so much more to life. Our inner pain doesn't have to rule us and we don't have to medicate it with drugs and alcohol.
All we have to do is get out and awaken to the beauty of the world and everything it has to offer, while at the same time sharing quality time with other men and women who understand what's like when those destructive thoughts come, and how it affects our whole beings.

Costa Rica is a wonderful and adventures place to get clean and sober. In fact many of our clients love it here so much, they decide to stay. Really though, what's not to love.
There's beaches in every direction, volcano's with rivers that are heated by the natural lava flows. Some of the best white water rafting on earth can be found just an hour from the center.
But most of all the people are wonderful. Costa Rica has some of the friendliest people in all of the America's, and there's an expat community of other people in recovery that can help you get settled in after you leave treatment.
Point is this, at Costa Rica Recovery you always stay part of our community. Getting you connected once you finish treatment is our number one priority.
We want you to succeed and quite frankly, we want you to stay. But wait, I almost forgot. You do have to do certain things while in treatment at the best rehab in Costa Rica.
