Former Patient Continues to Thrive in Her Recovery Nearly One Year Later

Myrna is celebrating eight successful months of sobriety after completing addiction treatment at WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab in Fort Myers. She began the treatment when she realized her addiction controlled every facet of her life, causing her to lose control of her day-to-day life. 

Since addiction is a relapsing and chronic disease, Myrna didn’t have much time before dependency would ruin her life entirely. Once she received the help needed, she never looked back. 

“I’ve been sober for eight months and much of my sobriety I owe to WhiteSands, Fort Myers,” she states. “I will always speak about this journey and how significant it was in my life.”  

It’s important to remember that addiction recovery is a life-long process. Just because someone has been discharged from residential and outpatient treatment does not mean that the struggle is over. It takes constant dedication to your sobriety to succeed in recovery. WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab maintains a relationship with all of our patients post-treatment, ensuring they continue on the right path.  

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. 

The Benefits Combination Treatment and Board-Certified Staff 

Myrna is just one of the thousands of success stories that WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab has created. The facility takes a different approach to treatment. Unlike many treatment centers that draw programs from generic, one-size-fits-all modalities, WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab customizes each program to each patient’s unique needs. Through all-inclusive, combination therapy involving medication-assisted treatment (MAT) coupled with counseling, therapy, and psychotherapy conducted by board-certified staff, patients are provided with the most comprehensive treatment available. In turn, their chances of obtaining and sustained long-term sobriety are much better. 

Some of the programs that WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab offers are: 

  • Medically assisted treatment 
  • Dual diagnosis  
  • One-on-one therapy with a primary therapist 
  • Biofeedback  
  • Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT) 
  • Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) 
  • Family therapy/couples therapy 
  • Aftercare support 

WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab also facilitates aftercare by providing resources for patients once they have been discharged from treatment. Relapse Prevention, trigger management, and 12-step support groups are part of the ongoing care that patients can receive through the facility. The facility wholeheartedly and genuinely cares about its patients’ well-being, happiness, and success, even once they have been discharged from treatment.  

“I would highly recommend this to anyone that is serious about their recovery. This works, so if you’re wondering if this might be the place for you, please give it a go”, says Myrna. “You will not regret it.”  

By rehabilitating patients, WhiteSands teaches them how to function in day-to-day life and be productive and contribute to society. When patients understand they have a support network to turn to and know exactly where to go when they require help, they have peace of mind in their recovery.
