CEREPA is Predisan’s inpatient treatment center for people suffering from substance abuse. Having helped hundreds of patients overcome alcohol and substance dependence since its founding in 1987, CEREPA is the best comprehensive inpatient Christian addiction treatment center in Honduras. Our inpatient facility is located on the outskirts of Catacamas, in a pleasant building with a large courtyard. It is surrounded by garden plots and mountain views.
The patients at CEREPA come from all parts of Honduras, from Guatemala and Nicaragua and from the United States. The treatment plan includes inpatient rehabilitation for men and women with individual therapy, group therapy and family counseling. Vocational opportunities and training in agriculture and related areas are a part of the program.
CEREPA meshes the 12-step AA program with the message of Jesus and professional care in a program called Celebrate Recovery. The program reflects the light of faith, and patients often accept Christ during treatment. Outpatient follow-up care is vital to the success of the program. Outpatient care is available at the center and at outpatient offices in Tegucigalpa. Each year former CEREPA patients and their families celebrate recovery at an anniversary dinner.
A significant prevention program aimed at curbing alcohol and drug abuse is an unheralded part of CEREPA’s work. Workshops are held at elementary schools, high schools, and colleges where students are encouraged in development of moral values and the dangers of addictions are openly discussed.
