WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab Alumni Spotlight

Support After Addiction Treatment is Vital to Long Term Sobriety

WhiteSands has helped over 10,000 individuals make a full recovery from their drug and alcohol addictions while providing continued support for patients through our Alumni programs. Many of our staff are recovering addicts themselves, having been in remission from addiction for years. Knowing full-well that support remains vital to successful recovery, the team leverages their treatment success to help others who are struggling.

One of our successful patients, Mark Adams, has completely turned his life around and is now an active member and coordinator of our Alumni program at WhiteSands Treatment. Mark was headed down a dangerous path, one that was consumed by chaos, destruction, and constant disappointment. He attended treatment and made a complete turnaround that sparked a new way of life for him. He is serious about his recovery and remains committed to helping others reach their recovery goals and sustain their sobriety.

At WhiteSands Treatment, we offer support where you need it most, whether that is in your home or out living in your everyday life.

If you or a loved one are struggling with addiction, call WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab today at 877.969.1993 to learn how we can help.

Benefits of Alumni Programs After Addiction Treatment

There are countless benefits of being part of an alumni program once you have completed your inpatient and outpatient rehab and are looking for continued support. These plans provide guidance through structured programming, which is inherently beneficial for those in remission from drug and alcohol addiction.

Some of the reasons being part of our alumni program is so valuable to our clients include:

  • Helps in the transitioning process between treatment and everyday life
  • Keeps individuals connected to a sober recovery community
  • Offers continued treatment and guides individuals to personal medical providers
  • Provides easy access to relapse prevention and aftercare programs
  • Offer ongoing encouragement and motivation
  • Gives the ability to choose your personal level of involvement in the recovery community
  • Helps people learn healthy habits and important life skills

WhiteSands Recovery Community

One of the riskiest times for a recovering addict is the time between finishing up treatment (being discharged) and re-entering everyday society. This time is when recovering addicts are at their most significant risk of relapse. Individuals will be confronted with temptation and pressure, and navigating these situations can be the difference between relapse and sobriety. Alumni programs can also help keep people on the right path as they maintain a supportive community of recovering addicts who share the same goal of sustaining their sobriety.

Our alumni program provides mentors for those who are new to sobriety, a valuable part of the recovery process. Mentors are an invaluable part of recovery as they can provide first-hand insight into life after addiction and can be a go-to resource for those in active recovery. When individuals see for themselves that an addict has turned their life around for the better and is now a mentor like Mark, it motivates them to continue their recovery journey with confidence.

Learning new skills and behaviors once you have reached sobriety can be challenging, which is why our Alumni program offers the help you need to sustain it. We provide tools and resources like weekly meetings, which are necessary to help you in the transition period and beyond. Our Alumni coordinators also plan regular events and outings that allow individuals to connect to others while strengthening their recovery.

It’s time to belong to a community that supports your recovery and is conducive to your long-term sobriety. The alumni program at WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab will help you discover your strength and potential by creating connections to those who have the same goals as you. Our alumni support program is committed to providing a safe, educational, and social network that facilitates a sober lifestyle.
