Reviews on Residential Inpatient Treatment Centers in Panama
Panama City • San Miguellito • David • Arraijan • La Chorrera • Colon • Changuinola • Boquete
The nation of Panama and Central America in general are not necessarily known for being a major recovery or rehabilitation hub for drug addiction, alcoholism, substance or even co-occurring disorders. Interestingly however, whether it is you or a loved who may be struggling with alcoholism or chemical dependency, Panama actually offers drug & alcohol rehab treatment center options that tend to provide luxury accommodations and advanced recovery services at extremely affordable rates as compared to other regions worldwide. Throughout major Panamanian cities like; Panama City, San Miguellito, David, Arraijan, La Chorrera, Colon, Changuinola and others, people seeking addiction and/or alcoholism treatment services are often able to make their limited financial resources stretch substantially further than maybe initially thought.
Panama is located along the southernmost border of Central America. It is a tropical climate nation bordering South America, Costa Rica, The Caribbean and the Pacific Ocean. While many of the other pages on this site are divided by city or major region, due to its lower number of drug rehabs and other various treatment center types, this specific page will include unbiased reviews on Panamanian treatment centers in general without being broken down by city or region.
As is the case with any residential treatment center, we encourage you to ask many questions and read the reviews below in order to get an idea of their previous client’s experiences. Most inpatient rehab facilities do not necessarily distinguish between drug addiction or alcoholism since they are basically one in the same maladies, the only difference being the poison of choice. Some questions we might suggest asking a treatment center in Panama prior to attending might be:
- What are the border security limitations with regard to temporary visas and passport restrictions?
- Is the facility 12-Step based, non 12-Step based, hybrid, holistic, religious, etc?
- Is the facility co-ed or gender-specific?
- What does the day-to-day clinical schedule of recovery services entail?
- Are recovery support systems like AA and NA available in Panama?

The program that I experienced there was a wonderful, caring, holistic approach provided by talented counselors in a beautiful setting. Activities ranged from individual and group therapy to spiritual growth, yoga, music, art, and weekly recreational outings. Everything was geared very effectively toward healing, including the amazing food and Cocoa the Empathic Labrador Retriever! Throughout my stay I felt respected, supported and inspired to change my life. Today my life is completely different and couldn’t be better. I credit my stay at as providing a strong foundation for making this happen. I can’t think of two people more committed to (Owners John & Jane Derry) and experienced in effective rehabilitation and recovery. They have made a very significant difference in my life and I am sure countless others.
