A ‘Whole Patient’ Approach Helped Her Tackle and Manage Her Addiction From All Angels
Jennifer entered WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab in Palm Harbor, Florida, when she realized that her addiction was ruining her life. She credits the “knowledgeable professionals who genuinely care about helping patients find lasting sobriety and a happier, healthier life.”
The difference between WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab and other addiction care facilities is that the facility focuses solely on the recovery of patients’ addiction; it works to rehabilitate patients by providing them with the resources and tools necessary to aid in long-term sobriety. When patients can enter day-to-day life post-treatment and be contributing members to society, they lead their lives with much more confidence and assurance.
Providing Unique, Bespoke Treatment
Providing personalized treatment programming is something that many treatment centers do not have the funds or means to arrange. Because of the costly expense of having small group sessions, full-time primary therapists on-site and comprehensive treatment and therapy are at the forefront of addiction treatment. Many facilities have no choice but to cut corners and provide generic, one-size-fits-all programs but not at WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab.
“They also provide a variety of small therapeutic groups to explore and address the issues that contribute to substance use, as well as classes that teach skills to help people stay sober, no matter their substance of choice coming in,” Jennifer states.
Part of WhiteSands’ approach to recovery identifies any underlying causes of addiction and determines what led them to substance abuse in the first place. Once the addiction’s foundation and driving force are recognized, a specialized program will be crafted based on this information.
Some of the elements of a ‘whole patient’ approach to addiction recovery include:
- Establish any co-occurring mental health disorders through in-depth patient analyses
- Account for previous substance abuse experience
- Looks at where or not there is a family history of addiction
- Determine if and where their support networks lay
- Taking into consideration the patient’s personality and beliefs
- Looks at how the individual views their self and their perception of reality
Benefiting Patients Through Anti-Institutionalized Treatment
WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab has helped thousands of patients obtain and sustain sobriety. By providing comprehensive, all-inclusive treatment to patients that uncovers the root cause of the addiction, patients will have every opportunity to succeed in long-lasting abstinence from drug and alcohol abuse.
“The sense of community fostered at WhiteSands is just as important as other aspects of treatment: patients learn that meaningful connections are the real antidote to addiction,” Jennifer says.
The therapists and counselors are not there to simply provide treatment; they are there as mentors who provide ongoing support and encouragement even long after the patient has been discharged. This continuity of care means that patients understand there is always someone to speak to in times of temptation, pressure, or confusion. This support network allows patients to understand that while recovery is a life-long journey due to urge and impulse, there is always help available.
“It’s a top-notch facility filled with kind, knowledgeable professionals who genuinely care about helping patients find lasting sobriety and a happier, healthier life,” Jennifer concludes.
