Finding a Job After Rehab

WhiteSands Can Help Connect You to a Potential Future Employer

At WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab in Fort Myers and Sarasota, patients participating in our outpatient programs, as well as alumni, are welcome to attend job fairs hosted by the facility to get them employment directly after inpatient and outpatient treatment. Several potential employers in the area hire WhiteSands alumni, and by attending these job fairs, patients can meet one-on-one with the employers, giving them an excellent opportunity for employment post-treatment.

Life after substance abuse can be a tough adjustment. We are here to help ease the transition between substance use disorders and addiction and recovery, which is why we do everything we can to help patients find employment once they are ready. Please take advantage of our assistance programs and create the life you want.

If you or a loved one are struggling with addiction, call WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab today at 877.969.1993 to learn how we can help.

Finding Employment Is Tough: WhiteSands Offers Opportunities 

Employers are struggling to fill jobs right now, and people coming out of rehab are looking for a fresh start. At WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab, we offer transportation, clothing, secure housing, and counseling for outpatients looking to start working again. For patients and alumni, this helps ensure their success as they re-enter the workforce.  For employers, this is a lot of support that helps them feel confident that they are hiring a reliable new employee.  Outpatient treatment, sober living, and alumni programs are part of the levels of care we offer for patients who have successfully completed their inpatient rehabilitation treatment programs. 

If patients are in therapy or attending our outpatient treatment program, Chris, our in-house Alumni Coordinator, who also runs the sober homes here, can help facilitate the process. It truly is a win-win for both employers as well as patients. Reentering the workforce can be challenging and can come with some hesitation, but we are here to help you every step of the way. 

We understand that mental health issues can sometimes hold people back from finding employment after rehab. Some of the mental illnesses that we can help treat through dual diagnosis at our rehab centers include:

  • Bipolar disorder 
  • PTSD treatment 
  • OCD
  • Generalized anxiety
  • Clinical depression

Some of the addictions that we can help treat at our treatment facility include:

  • Adderall addiction
  • Xanax addiction 
  • Fentanyl addiction 
  • Opioid addiction
  • Crack cocaine addiction 
  • Addiction to sleeping pills

Even if you have a criminal record, we can help you navigate the job market to find something that works for you. Employment opportunities are available after addiction rehab; allow our treatment center to help you.

Through a tailored rehab program, including partial hospitalization (PHP), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, intensive outpatient, and aftercare program (alcoholics anonymous and narcotics anonymous), addiction recovery at our recovery center is possible.
