How the Rehab Process Works

The facility places a significant focus on the well-being and happiness of patients and does everything it can to make the treatment experience enjoyable and comfortable. Each patient will know exactly what type of therapy, counseling, and treatment they have for the day because they are provided with an itinerary every day. Patients will be provided with the support and guidance needed for long-term success in addiction recovery through various addiction treatments.

“Their structure for how the days and weeks go by make it a very enjoyable stay,” Berrimond mentions. 

When patients begin their rehab program, they will start with residential treatment. The inpatient program is typically 28-days long, and during this time, patients will meet with their primary therapist regularly as they work through their treatment program. Each alcohol or drug addiction treatment will vary in length, and this will be determined once an in-depth patient analysis is conducted. 

Our alcohol and drug rehab facility in Fort Myers is unique in that many of the staff members here are recovering addicts themselves and have been in remission from addiction. They are proof that with dedication and commitment, sustained sobriety is possible. 

“WhiteSands has a great staff of counselors and therapists,” Berrimond says.
