Patient Credits the Activities at WhiteSands for Her Recovery

As a mother seeking help for her daughter Sawyer, who had become addicted to drugs, there was no option she wasn’t willing to explore to aid her daughter’s recovery from drug addiction. Luckily, a friend suggested WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab to the Orlando mother.  As soon as she looked into the facility and all they offered, including care levels, treatments provided, and the accommodations at the residential facility, she was sold.  Her daughter Sawyer said, “I came down here and it was the best decision I’ve ever made.”

Elements That Contribute to Success in Addiction Rehabilitation 

Not all treatment centers are created equally, and they don’t all offer the same quality of care. Before selecting a facility for your recovery, you need to conduct in-depth research on many different elements. These aspects include the types of programs the facility offers, if the specialists on staff are board-certified and qualified, and the center’s accommodations, activities, and amenities.

Some of the features that a treatment center should offer are: 

  • Space to relax
  • Private rooms 
  • A range of activities to enjoy during free-time once treatment is complete for the day 
  • Board-certified psychiatrists, counselors, therapists, and registered nurses 
  • An entire continuum of treatment options 
  • All levels of care offered on-site, including medically assisted treatment 
  • Ongoing care even after being discharged from inpatient and outpatient treatment 

When patients are provided with everything they need to feel at home and are not treated as though they are part of a standardized environment, they are much more receptive to treatment and recovery. 

Specialists at WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab meet with patients daily as they work through their addiction. Sawyer credits WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab for helping her through the darkest time of her life.

“My mom found WhiteSands through a friend of hers when I was at my lowest. “I was able to get all my issues worked on, which fueled my addiction,” she said. 

By determining the root cause of the addiction, patients can gain a solid foundation for recovery. Often, the driving force behind addiction is a co-occurring yet undiagnosed mental health disorder. Through in-depth patient evaluations and one-on-one therapy, patients can learn how to properly manage their mental illness while also working toward long-lasting recovery from addiction.
