With an Ongoing Commitment to Sustaining Sobriety, the Patient Has Reached a Milestone

After completing rehab at WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab in Ocala, former patient Lynette was not shy about honoring a significant time in her journey to sobriety. 

“6 months and counting,” she says with enthusiasm. 

When you are a recovering drug or alcohol addict, every day of sobriety is something to celebrate. With so much temptation out in the day-to-day world, the ability to stay sober after a history of drug or alcohol abuse is truly a test. 

One of the biggest challenges in recovery is sustaining sobriety. Because addiction is a relapsing and chronic disease, it can creep back into your life if you do not work hard at managing it, and our staff will help you along the way; just ask Lynette. 

“Virginia and Heidi have been wonderfully supportive in helping me succeed in my recovery,” she says. “It’s great knowing they’re there to listen and help with whatever I need to stay on track.” 

This needed support is why WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab in Ocala provides the tools and resources necessary post-treatment so patients have every opportunity to succeed in a lasting recovery.

Offering All Levels of Care

Part of successful addiction treatments is providing all levels of care to patients. WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab in Ocala offers treatment programs for individuals throughout every stage of the recovery process. Individual treatment planning is crucial for long-term success in recovery as it provides treatment for underlying issues as well. 

Some of the levels of care provided at WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab include:

  • Medical detox (drug detox and alcohol detox)
  • Residential treatment/inpatient treatment 
  • Intensive outpatient treatment (IOP)
  • Partial hospitalization (PHP)
  • Dual diagnosis for mental health disorders
  • Facilitation of 12-step meetings (alcoholics anonymous AA and NA meetings)
  • Relapse prevention and aftercare 

Patients will meet regularly with their primary therapist during drug and alcohol rehab and substance abuse treatment. During these meetings, they will learn various coping mechanisms and trigger management techniques designed individually. It’s important that when patients graduate from each level of care, they are prepared to tackle the next stage in their recovery journey.

Provided Ongoing Care

Our recovery center provides individual therapy and drug rehabilitation for various illicit and legal substance use disorders (SUD), behavioral disorders, and underlying mental health disorders. Addiction recovery does not end when inpatient and intensive outpatient treatment are complete; it extends beyond that. Substance abuse rehabilitation is a life-long journey that requires ongoing care, support, and treatment. Our outpatient programs provide patients with treatment, therapy, and counseling as part of the aftercare and outreach. Through SMART recovery tools and personalized aftercare recovery programs, patients will know exactly where to turn in times of temptation or relapse. 

Knowing where to access support is critical, which is why our aftercare programs include contact with primary therapists as part of the continuous recovery journey. Relapse prevention mechanisms can help recovering addicts navigate their sobriety with more confidence and clarity.
