Quality Help Is a Phone Call Away

It’s important to understand that addiction is a life-long battle, and even though you have successfully completed your treatment program, it doesn’t mean you are cured. Addiction is a disease that can only be managed, not cured, so dedication to sobriety is a critical component in long-lasting sobriety. Since it is also a relapsing disease, you, as a recovering addict, need to understand trigger management techniques and coping skills so that when temptation presents itself, you can navigate the situation. Part of the outpatient program offered through WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab in Fort Myers includes relapse prevention and life skills, which teach patients how to handle situations that may put their jeopardy at risk.

“If you find yourself in the unfortunate situation that we did, please have your loved one go to WhiteSands,” Anthony urges. “They were, and still are, integral in the ongoing success of my son’s recovery and I am forever grateful.”
