A prominent physician in Latin America, Dr. Jimenez has distinguished himself in the U.S. and worldwide. He brings a lifetime of experience in addiction medicine and counseling to the team and an unmatched degree of compassion for his patients. In the late ‘80s, the U.S. Department of State invited Dr. Jimenez to participate in the Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program at Johns Hopkins University, which studied substance abuse public policy, prevention and treatment across the globe. Following the fellowship program at Johns Hopkins, Dr. Jimenez was appointed Chief of the Department of Rehabilitation with the Costa Rican Institute on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence. Much like the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration in the U.S., the Department is the lead agency on research, prevention and treatment in Costa Rica. Recognizing his knowledge and experience in the area of addiction treatment standards, the World Health Organization, the coordinating authority for public health within the United Nations, asked Dr. Jimenez to act as their International Coordinator and Advisor on standards of treatment for addiction treatment facilities. Dr. Jimenez is not only a medical school professor, prolific researcher and published author, but he has also practiced and counseled in all areas of addiction medicine. He has served as Chief of Costa Rica’s first detoxification unit at Hospital Calderon Guardia in San Jose and as Medical Director of several residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities in the country. Dr. Jimenez is an international member of the American Psychiatry Association, the American Society of Addiction Medicine and a founding member of the Costa Rica College of Neuropsychopharmacology.More
