After a Four-Year Stint of Sobriety Ended in Relapse, a Patient Sought Help from WhiteSands Treatment
Former WhiteSands Treatment patient, Cee, attended treatment in Tampa after falling into relapse after four years of abstinence from substance abuse.
“WhiteSands Treatment Center helped me get back on track,” she says. “I relapsed after having four years clean.”
Relapse is a part of the addiction recovery journey and does not mean that you failed in your recovery. Since the disease of addiction is chronic and relapsing in nature, it tends to creep back into your life. This is why it is essential to stay engaged and active in your recovery and make conscious efforts every day to aid in your sobriety. Consistency is critical in long-lasting sobriety and involves doing your part to stay on top of your recovery. This process consists of avoiding triggers such as people you used to use with and places you used to use.
A Treatment Environment That Values Comfort
Our Tampa facility is unique in that we do not institutionalize rehab and do not restrict patients to the point of wanting to leave. Instead, we provide the comforts that aid in patients’ relaxation, well-being, and happiness.
“The gym and the personal trainers (that’s right personal trainers) are wonderful. They have full weights, treadmills, and a boxing gym,” Cee states.
WhiteSands Treatment puts a significant focus on ensuring that patients have constructive and healthy ways to spend spare time. Some of the amenities that are offered at the facility are:
- A 10-acre campus
- Private rooms featuring a private bathroom
- Cell Phones and personal electronics permitted
- An athletic complex
- A recreation center
- A boxing program
- Walking paths
Deciding to Get Help, Today
Like many other addicts who sought sobriety at WhiteSands Treatment in Tampa, Cee realized that the path of addiction was imminent and the longer she postponed getting help after her relapse, the longer she would have to wait to lead the life she intended for herself.
“I highly recommend this facility. I’m currently two months clean and chose to leave this review in hopes to inspire someone else who is seeking help,” Cee mentions
