Son Seeks Help from WhiteSands Tampa for Mother Struggling With Alcohol Abuse 

Find Effective Alcohol Addiction Treatment at WhiteSands

Chris was deeply concerned about his mother’s alcohol abuse problem when he called WhiteSands for guidance on how to get her into treatment.

Alcohol abuse is a pervasive issue on a national level as the substance is legal, relatively unregulated, and readily available to those of legal drinking age. Unfortunately, many individuals fall victims to alcohol abuse, and to make a full recovery from this chronic disease, treatment is necessary.  

“We are happy to say when Mom got back home, she was a new person and continues to work on her sobriety through the WhiteSands outpatient program; they are just simply the best,” Chris states. 

Our facility offers continued support through outpatient programs involving aftercare and relapse prevention for those in active recovery from addiction. When individuals are in a supportive environment conducive to healing, they are much more likely to succeed in long-term sobriety.  

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.

Alcohol Abuse Treatment Program 

Unfortunately, alcohol consumption is normalized in our society, which can make it hard to detect when an individual abuses it. Our comprehensive treatment programs for alcohol abuse and alcohol use disorder (AUD) have helped thousands of people like Chris’s mom make a full and lasting recovery.

Through our recovery program, patients work one-on-one with their primary therapist, who will determine any underlying mental health issues that may be the driving force behind addiction. If there is a disorder present, dual diagnosis treatment is required. By addressing co-occurring disorders, the individual can be stabilized to enter treatment for their addiction with promising outcomes.  

Since we offer a full continuum of treatment for those who struggle with alcohol abuse, we can adequately manage the patient from the very start of their treatment to the very end. A period of medical detox is often required for those struggling with alcoholism. The individual needs to be weaned off the substance and completely free of it before entering inpatient treatment.  

Our belief stems from the idea that individual personalized treatment will ensure a long-lasting recovery. When patients are treated on a customized basis, they are not receiving standardized, cookie-cutter care; they receive care that is tailored to them on every level. Our residential facility offers patients the compassionate care they need in a comforting and supportive environment.  

If you or someone close to you struggles with a drug or alcohol addiction, contact our intake specialists today. Help for addiction treatment is easier to find than you think.
