IAFA alerts on center operating illegally in Guanacaste

Operating under the name “Whole Recovery Center”

Offers alcohol, heroin, cocaine and other drug rehabilitation programs

The Institute on Alcohol and Drug Addiction (IAFA) warns on the illegal operation of “Whole Recovery Center”, currently located in Samara, Guanacaste, which offers recovery/treatment services for people with addiction problems, without complying with Costa Rica´s law.

According to Costa Rican legislation, these centers have to be licensed and have a work permit, in order to protect costumers and secure service quality. Currently, Whole Recovery Center has neither the permit from the Ministry of Health, Work Ministry, local municipality, nor has it been granted the corresponding permit by IAFA. Therefore, according to Costa Rican legislation (Law No. 8289, article 22) IAFA is following the procedure in order to close this operation.

IAFA has already alerted national authorities as well as the general public on the importance of verifying credentials as well as up-to date work permits by such centers or organizations. The programs currently authorized can be viewed in this 2012 directory: http://goo.gl/jyxsv

The center´s website can be viewed at: www.addictionlivehelp.com
