A Comprehensive Treatment Plan Is Key to Recovery

Alejandro is ecstatic about his mother-in-law’s success in addiction recovery thanks to the help, support, and care of WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab in Orlando.

“She is a changed person and my fiance and I are so grateful to have her back in our lives, happy and healthy,” Alejandro says.

Addiction is a devastating disease that affects not only the individual facing the disease but also family and close friends. It is called a ‘family disease’ because everyone close to the individual is affected.

Coping Mechanisms and Trigger Management Skills

WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab in Orlando does not simply discharge patients after treatment and hope they do well. They provide a detailed aftercare and relapse prevention plan for each patient that includes coping mechanisms and trigger management skills so they can easily tackle temptation, urges, cravings, and duress when confronted with it. Our drug rehab facility also does follow-up calls and meetings to ensure patients are on the right path.

Some of the coping mechanisms that are taught for successful aftercare include:

  • Using a support network – attending 12-step programs weekly
  • Keeping a daily journal
  • Getting exercise
  • Practicing mindful meditation
  • Participating in activities that you enjoy
  • Maintaining healthy eating patterns
  • Seeking healthy relationships
  • Practicing stress management

Coping skills include behaviors and thoughts used to help manage internal and external scenarios. With the proper tools and strategies in place, the chances of relapse can be mitigated, and you can learn healthy ways to cope with cravings and triggers. Knowing how to handle temptation can be the difference between sobriety and relapse, and WhiteSands can teach patients how to manage cravings effectively.

Aftercare and outpatient programs are just as important as inpatient care as they teach patients how to function in everyday civilian life as an addict who is in recovery. WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab in Orlando understands the unique challenges that patients face when they exit rehabilitation which is why they take the aftercare and outpatient programs extremely seriously.

“My mother-in-law received treatment at Whitesands and my family and I want to give the biggest thank you for breathing life back into her,” Alejandro says.
