I was informed that there is an alcohol rehabilitation center on the island. I hear that it is closed to visitors; however I am a human service major and would really love if I could get in contact with someone I could speak to about their facility. I’ve volunteered in rehab centers before and would enjoy seeing how the rehab process differs worldwide. What a great learning experience it would be! Anything helps!

Well let us know how it goes because I have lived here for 12 years and the only rehab I have heard of is the bar outside of Jaguar's nightclub in San Pedro.

We used to have AA meetings but that did not last long. San Pedro has set meetings that are well established. Belize does have an excellent drug and alcohal rehab center, It is however on the mainland. I know people who have gone and say it is impressing. I will try to find the name and post it. It is operated by a U.S. organization.

Well I always try to have a sense of humour but the few folks in need that went to this place, local gringos say it was a godsend.

I hate to be serious, but I had a friend asking for help. I had heard of New River Cove and told her about it. All she got was a US 1-800 phone number and requests for money. Never got a contact in country. Finally she went to some place in Belize City. Total no-frills but lots of love and prayers. She seems fine now. But of course I lost a NSA FWB drinking lass. But good on her for saving herself.
