Set in the tropical environs of Costa Rica on the coast of the Pacific Ocean, Tropical Oasis Treatment Center lives up to its name, with a non-12-step based recovery program in a retreat setting. Offering dual diagnosis care, Tropical Oasis keeps its client rolls low, emphasizing a holistic treatment approach.
Accommodations and Food
Surrounded by lush greens and located near the ocean, Tropical Oasis’ facility is truly top-of-the-line in terms of offering a vacation atmosphere. The facility is a villa-like, two-story home with shared and private rooms (depending on how many residents are in attendance). At any given time there are between six to eight clients on-site, although there’s room to accommodate up to 18. The rooms are impeccably decorated and feature plenty of natural light.
A chef on staff prepares three hot meals a day, with a special focus on creating well-balanced and nutritional option.
Treatment and Staff
The average length of treatment at Tropical Oasis is 30 days. As opposed to the majority of treatment facilities, Tropical Oasis does not subscribe to a 12-step based mode of treatment and instead mixes group therapy, individual counseling sessions and educational lectures throughout the day, with a focus on modern techniques such as yoga and nutrition. Tropical Oasis also offers music therapy and a variety of healing therapies and has a meditation session each morning. Because of the relatively low number of clients, Tropical Oasis is able to provide individualized treatment plans and specific recovery tracks for those recovering for opiate and cocaine addiction, all in addition to its dual diagnosis care (including special classes for those suffering from depression).
Tropical Oasis offers a medical detox on-site (with a 24 hour nursing staff) though potential residents may want to note that it’s specifically tailored to those in withdrawal from opiates. There is a medical doctor and psychiatrist on staff as well, with medication administered to clients when necessary.
In addition to the daily opportunities for yoga and meditation, Tropical Oasis has gym equipment on the premises and plenty of chances to use it every day. There is also a swimming pool on the grounds, not to mention a beautiful natural setting (with the beachfront just a short walk away).
Despite its holistic retreat-like atmosphere, Tropical Oasis makes sure to provide modern amenities in its resort villa, including unrestricted wireless Internet and satellite television.
The cost of Tropical Oasis seems more than fair considering what the facility has to offer. With an emphasis on yoga, exercise, nutrition and other holistic treatments, this is a place that offers a modern approach to treatment with plenty of nice amenities.
