Orlando, Florida resident Kimberly always had difficulty identifying why she was so drawn to abusing drugs. After attending WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab, she credits the unique range of therapies offered during her time there as the key to her recovery from drug abuse. 

“The therapists are great, the groups are so helpful, and the [Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT)] is so beneficial in realizing issues as to why I use,” she said.  

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.

WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab offers evidence-based, personalized treatment programs tailored to the specific needs of each patient. Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT) is a type of behavioral therapy offered to those struggling with substance abuse disorders and addiction.  It focuses on the idea of ‘moral reasoning.’

Learning to use moral reasoning decreases the chances of relapse among former addicts. When individuals can control their train of thought and stay alert in the decision-making process, it decreases the likelihood that they’ll slip back into drug and alcohol abuse.  

Benefits of Bespoke Therapies for Addiction 

When it comes to treatment for drug and alcohol addiction, it’s important to look for a facility that offers a personalized approach to recovery. Too often, treatment centers cut corners and apply a generic, institutionalized approach to recovery. Unfortunately, relapse rates are extremely high with a one-size-fits-all style of treatment. This strategy does not consider unique life circumstances and underlying mental health conditions that are often driving forces behind addiction. 

For recovery to be successful and long-lasting, a customized approach must be applied. When a personalized recovery program is utilized, recovery is much more successful. Some of the benefits of a tailor-made treatment program include: 

  • Addressing any co-occurring disorders 
  • Uncovering any underlying causes of addiction 
  • Exploring previous trauma  
  • Addressing family history of addiction 
  • Taking into consideration previous attempts at treatment that resulted in relapse

“WhiteSands is amazing. Out of the many rehabs I have been to, this place definitely is my favorite. I certainly recommend WhiteSands to anyone suffering with substance abuse,” Kimberly says.

Keys to Long-Term Recovery 

When it comes to sustaining your sobriety long-term, it takes consistent dedication. Since addiction is classified as a disease, it requires treatment and a commitment to sobriety to ensure it does not creep back into your life. By consciously devoting yourself to your recovery, you are mitigating your chances of relapse.  

Continued care is always advised for as long as the patient requires it. Addiction is relapsing in nature and can easily come back into your life if you do not apply the coping strategies and trigger management skills learned in treatment. By effectively doing your part in maintaining your sobriety, you are demonstrating your commitment to your recovery.
