I need some serious info, advice and direction. I have a friend who lives here on the island who is in the critical last stages of advanced alcoholism. To reassure you all about the urgency of this situation, I am a retired professional firefighter medic so my assessment is accurate. His only hope is that we get him to a medically supervised alcohol detox center within the next couple of days. Iím hoping this group can give me some solid leads and direction. He is Canadian and has no money. His family will be in route but I wish to have some information to point them in the right direction, if not conditions may dictate proceed directly with getting him relocated to the proper facility before they get here.

I will be calling medical associates in Belize city in the morning to see if they have this capability. I will be paying attention to the board but if anybody wishes to speak to me you can reach me at 634-2235. Thanks... and God bless

Try calling Remar in Belize City - at 227-6123.
I don't think they have medical facilities but they should have information.

I spoke to both Med Assoc and REMAR... MA will do the supervised, But as we all know thatís going to be a pay as we go situation. I have yet to talk with the main hospital in Belize city. Mario at REMAR was very helpful, But they have no capability to detox him with medical supervision. But they will be a great help after he is stabilized somewhere yet to be determined. Anyone aware if KHM would handle this type of situation for a toreigner?

I would contact Drs Hildalgo or Arriaga in Belize City, who are our better internists, who can offer info for medically supervised detox. Alcoholism is not alien to Belize and assume they know the best was forward
