Every Day in Sobriety Is a Milestone to Be Recognized
After spending time at WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab Center in Fort Myers as a patient, Brad leads a fulfilled life after learning how to cope with and manage his disease of addiction. Brad spent just over one month in the facilities’ inpatient residential rehab program, where he met with board-certified therapists, clinicians, and counselors as he worked toward lasting sobriety.
“Spent 36 days there and I have been clean since 90 days ago”, he says.
Each patient who enters WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab Center in Fort Myers will receive individualized care. Any underlying mental illness will be uncovered during the initial patient assessment so patients can receive dual diagnosis treatment if need be. The root cause and driving force behind the addiction must be brought to the forefront so that a successful foundation for recovery can be made.
Inpatient and Outpatient Addiction Treatment
The facility offers all levels of care, from medically assisted detox to outpatients, aftercare, and beyond. Depending on the severity of the addiction, a 28 or 60-day treatment program will be recommended. Since the facility has a full-time roster of treatment specialists, patients will have a designated therapist throughout their entire treatment.
“The staff, from therapist to techs and nursing, is absolutely top-notch,” says Brad.
Some of the treatment programs offered during inpatient treatment include:
- One-on-one therapy sessions
- Therapy with a board-certified therapist
- Group counseling
- Support from others who are going through similar things
- Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) allows patients to recognize unhealthy patterns in their behavior and identity triggers.
- Develop coping skills
- Contingency management is a treatment rooted in positive reinforcement and teaches patients relapse-prevention techniques.
- 12-step programs
- AA (alcoholics anonymous) and NA (narcotics anonymous) are highly recommended for recently discharged patients.
- Support groups allow patients to share their struggles while learning how others cope with similar things.
- Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is for those struggling with addiction and mental illness. These medications can help curb cravings and manage withdrawal symptoms.
