With the Proper Tools and Resources, Patients Can Thrive in Recovery

After attending the 30-day inpatient residential program at WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab in Fort Myers, former patient John reflected on his time in rehab.

“It was truly an amazing experience,” he mentions. 

During patients’ time in rehab, they will meet with a primary therapist multiple times per week on a one-on-one basis as they work through their addiction. The team of dedicated clinicians, therapists, and counselors make a patient’s success their utmost focus and are committed to helping patients achieve their sobriety goals.

Programs That Set Patients Up For Success Post-Treatment 

Addiction is a disease that has to be appropriately managed once the patient has been discharged from treatment, as it is chronic and relapsing in nature. Without dedication and commitment to recovery, relapse is imminent. WhiteSands understands the importance of life skills in sustaining sobriety. We offer each patient a unique life skills guide who will assist in guiding patients on how to lead a healthy life.  

Some of the features and benefits of the life skills program are: 

  • Advice on how to create healthy habits 
  • Methods to maintain long-lasting sobriety  
  • How to create a routine and schedule that is conducive to recovery  
  • Implements structure and discipline  
  • Learning independence  
  • Reduces the risk of relapse 

“I developed skills I plan on utilizing on a daily basis throughout the course of my life,” John says. When patients enter everyday life with the right tools and resources, they are much more successful in maintaining sobriety. 

The Comfort of Patients is Pivotal During Treatment 

WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab in Fort Myers focuses on the happiness, comfort, and well-being of patients. This process means providing them with the comforts of home as well as amenities that keep them active and healthy. 

“The food and the living areas were beyond expectation and I would recommend this place to anyone. Thank You WhiteSands”, John says.  

Home-cooked meals are part of the residential stay at WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab in Fort Myers and each homestyle meal is prepared daily. When patients are provided with nutritious meals, it helps to fuel them both mentally and physically so they can tackle recovery.  

The facility takes a much different approach to recovery than a standard institutionalized approach. By creating a home-like experience for patients who put their needs at the forefront of the recovery process, they are more likely to succeed in long-lasting sobriety. When patients are provided with personalized treatment and recovery plans that consider the driving force behind the addiction, the efficacy of rehab becomes much more remarkable. Through dual diagnosis treatment, patients will be treated for their underlying co-occurring disorder in conjunction with their drug or alcohol addiction. This may include medication assisted treatment (MAT), which works to stabilize patients psychologically, so they are in the right headspace and mind frame to tackle their addiction.
