Located in the tropically quaint town of Boquete, Panama, Serenity Vista has been incorporating various activities into their core treatment program in an effort to better personify the parallels between the activity at hand and living within the guides of a healthy sober lifestyle. With respect to their groundbreaking tropical sober sailing therapy approach, its intent is essentially to bring full circle a variety of clinical as well as non-clinical components. Says facility director, John Derry, “Our sailing program truly shatters the bounds of conventional therapies in that it brings together a full life experience, much like successful recovery, that is derived through internalizing beauty, powerlessness, collective power, stillness, excitement, patience and the beautiful magnificence of being at one with nature.”
The sailing program is highly unique and innovative in the addiction treatment field, dating back to Serenity Vista’s transition from Canada to the current Panama location and takes place on a 36 foot racing/cruiser Beneteau named “Decision.”
Serenity Vista provides inpatient residential addiction treatment from within a luxuriously appointed and holistically based residence geared to address the wide range of addictions and codependency. They work with men and women ages 18 and up struggling from substance abuse, alcoholism and are even among the world’s very few noted successful residential nicotine cessation programs.
