Terapeutic Communities PDF Print E-mail

The therapeutic communities provide support in several aspets for the treatment and recovery of alcohol and drug adicction progrmas such like the ones used by the federations centes and other non profit organizations.

In Cost Rica the effort of these communities has been evident in the self help groups such like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anaonymous. They are also evident in the member centers which treatment protocol is the 12 step matrix of Alcoholics Anonymous.

In 2001 Costa Rica was chosen to be the host for the 8th annual conferece of Latin American Terapeutic Conferences which has its main administrative office in Colombia. The conference was a complete success due to all of the non profit organizations here in Costa Rica as well as the Federations member centers existing.

 

3 very significant elements arise from the success of this conference in the year 2001:

  A.) The Association of Terapeutic Communities of Costa Rica.

  B.) The association of Drug and Alcohol counselors of Costa Rica.

  C.) The Alcoholic Recovery Centers Federation of Costa Rica.

 

The conference in 2001 was the final step for all 3 of these elements to be conformed. They where already in the works. The member center in Goicoechea, Guadalupe was chosen to be the main administrative office to aid all of the logistics and duties that are needed to support the 3 elements described above. Thru the results of these efoorts the ACTECR was able to send many interested people to obtain certificates in Colombia for alcohol and drug adicction certifications during the period of the years 2003 to 2007. The workshops and seminars at a national level where also increased to 2 per year as a result of this movement.

At the present, thru the University of Costa Rica, there is a consistent number of people who are receiving education and workshops to enhance their knowledge in the alcohol and drug addiction treatment fields as therapists and counselors. (OEA-CICAD).
