Thousands of Floridians are suffering from an addiction to drugs and alcohol. Like many cities nationwide, Daytona Beach, Florida, has not been spared by the opioid epidemic. Despite the sunshine and wide range of attractions, this area of Florida is home to many who are struggling with an addiction to illicit drugs like heroin, prescription drugs like Fentanyl, or alcohol. Once addiction sets in, it changes the chemistry of the brain. This process is why people with an addiction find it nearly impossible to stop using even when the substance begins to cause their mental and physical health to deteriorate and even when it begins to affect their work and primary relationships.
WhiteSands Treatment features a rehab network in Florida that includes inpatient and outpatient rehabs and detox treatment centers. If you live in Daytona Beach and want to overcome your addiction to drugs or alcohol, you can seek help nearby at our luxury rehab in Plant City for detox and residential services or in DeLand at our outpatient treatment center. When you visit our centers to enroll, we can discuss our various programs and therapies. After a psychological evaluation, our addiction specialists will recommend the ideal course of treatment for you.
WhiteSands Treatment is renowned for our customized treatments for alcohol and drug addiction. We believe that customizing treatments provides a strong foundation for clients’ recovery success. Each person arrives having lived with a different set of circumstances. Each person’s chemistry and perspectives are unique. Our therapists have the ability to tailor therapy to each individual’s unique situation.
Our WhiteSands team includes doctors, therapists, addiction specialists, and caring support professionals. We provide our clients with the empathetic care they deserve because addiction takes a toll on many aspects of their lives, including their health. We help them rebuild through our evidence-based treatment programs that are complemented by holistic and alternative therapies. Together, these treatments help clients manage their condition for the long term to enjoy lasting sobriety.
Alcohol addiction impacts millions of people in the U.S. Alcohol is a powerfully addictive substance. Though legal, alcohol abuse and addiction are among the leading preventable causes of death in the U.S. WhiteSands offers complete treatment programs for people suffering from alcoholism. Our Plant City rehab is located near Daytona Beach and offers medical detox and other residential treatments designed to help people manage their alcohol abuse disorder. With treatment, individuals can achieve their recovery goals.
The first step in the treatment program is typically medical detox. Detox targets the physical aspects of addiction. The body, as well as the mind, is dependent on alcohol. Before we can address addiction’s psychological aspects, we rely on medical detox to allow the body to overcome its physical alcohol dependence. This process usually takes anywhere from three days to a week; however, the time frame depends on the person’s chemistry and the length of time they’ve been addicted to alcohol.
Symptoms can accompany the withdrawal process, but that’s why it’s essential to undergo detox in a treatment center or hospital setting. Withdrawal symptoms can become severe. Alcohol withdrawal is associated with delirium tremens (DTs), a series of severe symptoms that can prove life-threatening. At WhiteSands, we’re able to provide treatment to reduce and sometimes even ward off severe withdrawal symptoms, ensuring clients are safe and secure in our care.
When undergoing detox at our Plant City rehab, clients can expect to be monitored during their detox so our clinicians can make them feel as comfortable as possible. We can prescribe medications to reduce withdrawal symptom severity. Clients will also have their own private rooms where they can relax, knowing that support is just outside their door if they need it.
Our drug detox program works similarly to our alcohol detox. However, it’s important to note that different drugs can cause different withdrawal symptoms. Opioids, for instance, often cause flu-like symptoms. Our clinicians will treat any withdrawal symptoms that arise during the detox process. It’s common for withdrawal to begin with mild symptoms like a headache, but symptoms can quickly escalate, so it’s always best to detox within a safe healthcare environment.
During detox, clients are slowly weaned from the drug they’ve been addicted to. Again, this process will vary for each person as their unique chemistry and the length of time they’ve been addicted will impact their detox experience. Some of the most common withdrawal symptoms include headache, nausea, vomiting, insomnia, and depression. We’ll treat these and any other withdrawal symptoms that arise to ensure that clients are as comfortable as possible.
Medical detox is just the first phase of quality addiction treatment. People with alcohol abuse disorder require therapies that address the psychological aspects of their disease. Addiction is a complex condition that involves physical and mental dependencies. While detox addresses physical dependency, other rehab programs are designed to address the addiction’s often more complicated psychological aspects.
WhiteSands Treatment features a luxury rehab experience at our Plant City location. We offer alcohol rehab programs based on medically sanctioned therapies like one-on-one counseling and peer group meetings. During these sessions, we help clients unravel how they became addicted to alcohol. We examine their triggers so we can find effective strategies for coping with them. This process is why it’s so important to us to provide individualized therapy to tailor our solutions to each client’s needs.
WhiteSands also complements our evidence-based treatments with holistic and alternative treatments. These treatments have been shown to enhance the recovery process. During therapy, clients have to shed many former unhealthy patterns of living and thinking. These therapies help them do that. For instance, during yoga, we help clients practice mindfulness, which helps combat negative emotions. Some clients aren’t always comfortable talking about themselves or their traumas, so we provide art therapy to help them communicate and work through their feelings in another way.
Our rehab treatments for alcoholism will help clients build a strong foundation for their recovery and post-addiction lives. At our luxury Plant City facility, clients can get the support they need to move forward and get the help they need to prevent relapse.
Clients who have completed detox for drug addiction are also ready to participate in our drug rehab programs. As with treatment for alcohol addiction, drug addiction requires a multi-type treatment plan to help clients overcome their dependencies. Once detox is completed, clients can begin treatments that address the mental aspects of their condition. Again, we feature evidence-based therapies complemented by alternative and holistic treatments designed to promote real and lasting recovery.
Clients who live in Daytona Beach will find that our Plant City location has everything needed to support recovery. We offer world-class treatment plans, individualized therapies, experienced clinicians and therapists, and a spectacular array of amenities that support comfort and wellness. Whether you are addicted to prescription drugs or illicit drugs, you can benefit by spending time in our rehab and getting the support you need to put your addiction behind you.
Withdrawal symptoms are never pleasant, but opioid withdrawal symptoms can often extend beyond the typical detox time frame, especially cravings. Our Plant City drug rehab facility specializes in opioid addiction treatment that includes medical detox. Clients can undergo opioid detox at our rehab in safety. We monitor each client’s health to ensure they are safe and carefully weaned from the drug.
Withdrawal from opioids often involves flu-like symptoms such as nausea and vomiting. Clients may also experience headaches, sweating, insomnia, and anxiety. Our clinicians provide treatments to help clients feel more comfortable. We use medications that can greatly reduce or eliminate some withdrawal symptoms.
Cravings play a role for many clients as they detox. They can feel overwhelming. Both the body and brain crave the opioid. We can provide medications like Suboxone that block these cravings. Many clients stay on Suboxone beyond the detox period. Suboxone is safe, effective, and allows clients to focus more on their treatments and recovery journey. Once opioid detox is complete, clients can begin the next leg of their recovery program as an inpatient in Plant City.
WhiteSands features treatment plans designed to help people addicted to opioids, a powerfully addictive class of drugs. Opioids are derived from the opium poppy. These drugs may be street drugs such as heroin, which is synthesized from the opioid drug morphine, or it can be prescription painkillers such as oxycodone or Fentanyl.
It’s not surprising that people abuse these drugs for many different reasons. Some people abuse opioids for recreational reasons; their friends offered them the drugs at some point. Other people may have become addicted to opioids because they were prescribed pain medication for an injury or health condition. We help clients understand how they became addicted to opioids and how to manage that addiction. Relapse prevention plays an important role in our treatment plans.
During opioid rehab at our Plant City location, clients will take part in evidence-based treatments and alternative and holistic therapies. We help them overcome their physical and mental dependencies through each type of therapy, including medication management if needed.
At WhiteSands Treatment, we understand there are many ways to support lasting addiction recovery. Medically assisted treatment (MAT) is one of the options we have at our disposal for helping clients overcome their addiction. As mentioned, Suboxone is a highly effective drug that we can prescribe for people addicted to opioids. This drug blocks the cravings and withdrawal symptoms associated with the early weeks and months of recovery.
We can also prescribe other medications for clients as needed. Whether you’re addicted to drugs or alcohol, you may experience uncomfortable symptoms for the short or even the long term. For instance, it’s not uncommon for people to have a dual diagnosis and require long-term management with antidepressants. We also provide medications for clients suffering from anxiety, insomnia, or other conditions that can impede their recovery. Medication management helps them feel well and focus on their treatments.
Detoxing from drugs or alcohol is how the body becomes ‘clean’ from the substance of addiction. It is a gradual process by which the body is slowly weaned from drugs or alcohol. Some people complete detox in a few days. Others require a week or two. At WhiteSands Treatment, we try to make clients feel as comfortable as possible. We know that withdrawal symptoms can be unpleasant, so we provide a wide array of treatments and medications designed to reduce their severity.
Many clients choose to relax in the comfort of their private room, getting rest or watching television. Other clients prefer to read or take advantage of our on-site amenities like our swimming pool or massages. Clients who are not feeling well can get the support they need from our clinicians. After detox is complete, clients can begin their subsequent treatments designed to support their recovery.
The WhiteSands rehab experience is unique from many other treatment centers in Florida. We are an award-winning network of addiction treatment centers and are renowned for individualized treatment plans and a wide array of luxury amenities at our residential facilities. During their course of treatment, our clients can immerse themselves in therapies that truly support wellness and recovery.
Our therapists will work with clients during each treatment session to help them manage their triggers that could cause relapse if not effectively controlled. These triggers can be negative emotions like anger or sadness. We help clients change unhealthy thought patterns and lifestyle choices to embrace healthy options that support their sober living goals. It takes time and practice to make these major life changes, but we’re here to support our clients each step of the way.
We provide clients with the tools, resources, and skills they need to achieve their recovery goals. Some days can be challenging, but we focus on the progress made. Each day brings progress. As clients progress through their recovery plan, they become more confident in managing their addiction and maintaining their recovery. By the end of our inpatient programs, clients will be ready to transition to outpatient therapy in DeLand and then aftercare. We set each client up for sobriety success.
Daytona Beach is a popular destination for travelers in search of sunshine and beach fun. Located in Volusia County, Daytona Beach is home to nearly 70,000 residents. If you’re living in this Florida seaside city, you may not be aware of just how sober-friendly it is. The reality of addiction is that it robs people of many life experiences. Often, our clients spent most of their time using drugs or alcohol, so they didn’t take part in many healthy lifestyle activities popular in this area of the country. They didn’t visit some of the city’s best-loved attractions.
We believe it’s important for clients to fill their life with activities that support a healthy lifestyle. When a person stops using drugs or alcohol altogether, a void can appear in their lives. This void may be quite large for some people who have been forced to leave behind their social circle because their peers continue to abuse drugs and alcohol. It’s essential to fill this void with new acquaintances and healthy friendships and new activities, and new places to go.
After you complete your inpatient program at WhiteSands in Plant City and transition to an outpatient plan in DeLand, you’ll want to fill up your spare time with sober-friendly things to see and do around your home. Daytona Beach offers a wealth of natural and cultural attractions that can enhance your continued recovery journey. Here are some ideas to keep in mind:
Daytona boasts about 20 miles of beach. That’s 20 miles of scenic splendor. People from all over the country flock to these sun-kissed beaches, but you can enjoy them all year long as a resident. Many clients take up new fitness routines that involve walking, running, or swimming. The beach is the perfect place to practice your new fitness activities on your own or with friends.
Daytona Boardwalk Amusements
Visit the Daytona Boardwalk Amusements when you don’t feel like being alone or want to enjoy some fun during the day or at night when the area is all lit up. The boardwalk is home to amusement park rides like a Ferris wheel and roller coaster. It also features a myriad of eateries and shops. If you’re looking for something to do that doesn’t cost a fortune, head here.
Tiger Bay State Forest
Situated between Daytona and DeLand, Tiger Bay State Forest features more than 27,000 acres of swampland and is a natural habitat for the region’s plants and animals. There are many things to do here, such as hiking, photographing flora and fauna, picnicking, bicycling, fishing, boating, and horseback riding.
Daytona International Speedway
The Daytona International Speedway is one of the city’s national attractions. Home of NASCAR, the racetrack is a fun place to be a spectator and witness the thrills of the race. Because alcohol may be sold or brought in by others, it’s important to avoid this attraction until you are ready to be in proximity to people who may be drinking. On the other hand, this is also a venue where you can enjoy non-alcoholic beverages.
Marine Science Center
Home to more than 200 species of wildlife, the Marine Science Center is a must-visit attraction for animal lovers. The facility nurtures wildlife until they’re ready for release back into the wild. Visitors can witness the treatments that go on at the facilities, observe animals, or enjoy walking the trails. There’s also a bird observation tower on the grounds and a wide range of exhibits to explore.
Be sure to keep these attractions in mind as you transition back to your everyday life. Daytona Beach is home to many different shopping districts that feature theatres, recreation centers, and other cultural attractions. Work with your therapist to design a plan for activities that include things you like to do, such as yoga, beach-combing, bicycling, or camping. You can enjoy these and many other things to see and do in and around Daytona Beach.

It gave me hope so I ended up calling them and I was there that night. White Sands was a life changer the therapist to the staff all of them played a part in helping me find myself.

The Detoxification and Inpatient treatment programs at WhiteSands Treatment Center provide services to individuals suffering from alcoholism and/or other forms of chemical dependency and/or abuse. The detoxification program provides patients with safe medical detoxification by monitoring and stabilizing withdrawal risks, bio-medical conditions and complications. The rehabilitation program follows the detoxification program and provides patients with therapeutic interventions, focused on developing and maintaining a healthy recovery from alcoholism and other chemical dependencies.
Whether you are suffering from alcoholism, struggling with a dependence on prescription medication or addicted to an illegal drug like crystal meth, WhiteSands Treatment can offer you a carefully-designed and highly effective program that will facilitate your recovery. Many of our patients need to go through a period of detoxification at the time of admission, and you may be wondering whether this is necessary in your case, and maybe confused about exactly what it will involve.
It is a common misconception that the best way of dealing with addiction is to go ‘cold turkey’; in fact, abruptly stopping a drug is likely to lead to relapse, and could even be dangerous. Inpatient medical detox is a process during which addiction is dealt with by gradually reducing drug dosage. Some of the most common addictions requiring inpatient detox include alcohol, drugs such as MDMA, cocaine, crystal meth, opiate painkillers, benzodiazepines, and barbiturates. Those who consent to undergo inpatient detox for dependence on any of these drugs will dramatically increase their chances of recovery, thanks to the close supervision of medical experts.
At WhiteSands, we have a team of board-certified doctors, nurses, psychiatrists and counselors at our disposal, and a number of these staff members will design and oversee the detox process while providing constant support that helps to preserve your comfort and dignity. Detox begins with a careful assessment of your dependence and an in-depth physical examination that accurately measures the extent of your addiction. We will discuss our findings with you after this, and recommend a precise treatment plan. You can rest assured that we will also let you know exactly what to expect from your treatment and that you will be safe in our hands; we are highly experienced in dealing with physical dependence on drugs and alcohol in a compassionate, gentle way.
There are several major advantages to choosing to tackle substance abuse in this way. For one thing, our staff members have received extensive, up-to-date training that allows them to know exactly how and when to reduce the dosage of a drug of abuse in order to minimize the discomfort experienced by patients. Studies show that those who try to stop taking a drug without the help of such medical professionals are much more likely to relapse, mainly because the withdrawal symptoms can be painful and very difficult to handle.
In addition, safety is one of the most significant reasons why we strongly recommend inpatient detox for anyone with a serious addiction problem. Abruptly stopping your intake of certain drugs can be fatal; for example, even alcohol dependence can lead to cardiac arrest if you suddenly stop drinking. You are less likely to experience dangerous complications if you are under supervision while being weaned off drugs or alcohol, and if there are any warning signs of complications during the detox process, then we will immediately notice the signs and compensate for them in order to make you more comfortable. We closely monitor everyone in our treatment center at all times, and we can quickly administer necessary medications to deal with unpleasant physical or mental aspects of detox.
Patients in the detoxification stage of recovery may require medications to assist them in the management of withdrawal symptoms. This includes opioid detoxification, which we are capable of providing, and in addition to that, some patients may need to take medications relating to medical problems on an ongoing basis, while they are participating in both Detoxification and/or the Inpatient Rehabilitation Programs. Medication management is achieved by ongoing assessment by the Medical Director and follow-up by the nursing staff to provide the proper medications to the patients as deemed appropriate to address their medical needs.
Although inpatient medical detox is a major step in the rehabilitation process, it is not the end of your recovery. Alcoholics and drug addicts who only submit to detoxification and then stop their treatment will typically show patterns of future abuse. We believe that a customized treatment program involving cognitive behavioral therapy is a vital next step towards recovery, and we offer both individual and group therapy. Our goal is to follow detox by equipping you with the self-awareness and the skills that will help you to understand why you became an addict in the first place and to reduce the chances that you will ever relapse. We also provide family programs that aim at strengthening the bonds that you have with your loved ones by helping them to understand the nature of addiction and helping you to resolve negative feelings that may have emerged during the height of your substance abuse.
Are you ready to end the painful and destructive cycle of substance abuse? At WhiteSands Drug and Alcohol Treatment Center, we offer highly customizable detox programs that are designed to suit the particular drug of abuse. For example, if you are addicted to crystal meth, then inpatient medical detox will be vital to your rehabilitation. However, if you are addicted to a prescription painkiller, then your treatment may be more focused on therapy to combat psychological dependence.
Detox can be conducted on an inpatient or outpatient basis, but we generally recommend inpatient treatment due to the fact that it is more likely to lead to long-term recovery. Regardless of the program to which you are admitted, our board-certified doctors, nurses, and psychiatrists will work to ensure your safety and facilitate your recovery by managing withdrawal symptoms and constantly monitoring your progress in a safe, comfortable environment. By undergoing both detox and therapy, you can expect to notice profound changes in your physical and mental health, and you will leave WhiteSands with the skills to resist relapsing in the future. We also offer family programs that create a deeper understanding of the nature of addiction and help to mend damaged relationships.
You deserve to be free from the devastating cycles of drug and alcohol addiction. Call (877) 640-7820 to talk to our team of alcohol and drug treatment specialists about why WhiteSands is the perfect place to recover.
At WhiteSands Treatment we take a different and less institutional approach to addiction recovery. We understand that it is hard enough to seek help which is why we make the utmost effort to ensure that you are comfortable throughout inpatient treatment. We realize that individuals focus better in therapy when it is not a game of survivor.
We pride ourselves in ensuring that patients are comfortable throughout their time in inpatient treatment. We do this by providing luxurious accommodations that feature a queen-sized bed, flat-screen TV in every room, a private bathroom, and a lenient policy on cellphone and electronics use after treatment hours. By providing a home-like environment, patients feel more relaxed and at ease during a time of change, challenge, and determination.
While we focus heavily on providing the highest quality treatment, care, and support to all patients, we put equal amounts of time and attention into making sure our amenities and accommodations exceed our personal standards as well as the standards of our clients. We are consistently working to raise the bar to provide the best treatment possible coupled with premier amenities and accommodations for our guests.
Knowing which treatment modality is right for you can be overwhelming which is why WhiteSands Treatment provides consistent support to all patients, from the initial evaluation and admittance process to discharge and aftercare. By determining your unique rehab goals, whether that is identifying and overcoming an underlying mental health issue or diagnosing any sort of medical maladies, our compassionate addiction specialists are here to help you through each phase of recovery.
Our inpatient rehab program is ideal for patients who have already been through an inpatient medical detox process. This program also suits patients for whom such a detox was deemed unnecessary.
Our extensive experience in treating drug addiction and alcoholism has demonstrated that certain medications can be vital in helping some patients attain mental and physical stability. Specifically, we may choose to administer drugs that reduce the cravings associated with abstaining from substance abuse, thereby making your recovery more comfortable and also reducing your chances of relapsing. For example, if you are addicted to prescription painkillers (such as codeine or oxycodone) then medications like buprenorphine and naltrexone can diminish typical withdrawal symptoms. After this type of treatment, you are likely to be more responsive to the programs of therapy that we provide.
When it comes to psychological treatments, we tailor our therapy programs to the individual needs of our patients. We equip you with the skills you will need to cope with life’s stresses, without turning to substance abuse in the future. Through cognitive behavioral therapy, you will also gain a better understanding of why you developed a problem with drugs or alcohol in the first place. We also offer family programs that have a therapy component. These programs are geared toward mending damaged relationships, healing bonds and teaching your loved ones about the highly complex nature of addiction.
While many patients are understandably wary of undertaking the intimidating commitment of entering an inpatient rehabilitation program, we believe it is the smartest and most successful way to recover from addiction. What you experience and learn during a short stay in our drug treatment center could prevent you from ever having to return to rehabilitation.
Studies on recovery from addiction show that patients who are admitted to an inpatient medical detox program but refuse to undergo any further treatment, are almost as likely to return to substance abuse. True rehabilitation requires careful, long-term treatment, and that is what our inpatient rehabilitation programs can provide. In a comfortable and relaxing setting, you will receive constant physical and emotional support from our medical team and from fellow members of the WhiteSands community.
Many patients continue to struggle with difficult medical and psychological issues after the detox process is complete, and our inpatient rehabilitation program allows us to monitor your condition and helps to reduce ongoing problems. For example, a member of our psychiatric or counseling team will always be on hand to talk to you if you are feeling distraught, and we may provide you with the aforementioned medications that can reduce cravings or withdrawal symptoms when physical discomfort becomes too difficult to tolerate.
As you are getting closer to completing the program, you will be assessed once again. At this point, we are happy to help you make a smooth transition back into society by finding a place for you in our sober living community or locating a support group in your area. The goal of such programs is to help you to make a smooth, gradual transition back to independent living. You will be monitored, but you will have more autonomy and freedom than is typically experienced in inpatient programs. You can begin to return to the work and engage in family and social commitments that used to be at the center of your life. Additionally, you will continue to form meaningful, long-lasting bonds with people who have been through similar experiences, and these types of mutually supportive bonds can help to ensure that your recovery is permanent.

All conversations are entirely confidential, and our team of experts is more than happy to answer any questions you might have.

Drug or alcohol addiction can lead to physical, psychological, and emotional damage. While many people struggling with alcoholism or drug addiction will need to be admitted to an inpatient treatment program in order to recover, intensive outpatient rehabilitation can also be highly effective for recovery in certain cases. By moving from inpatient treatment to intensive outpatient substance abuse treatment, you will have the opportunity to gradually transition to being an active, healthy member of society once again. We offer such programs for those struggling with addiction to drugs or alcohol, and we can also help those with a dual diagnosis to overcome their addiction and manage an accompanying mental health issue. You might be wondering, “Where can I find an outpatient drug rehab near me?” But what you should be asking is, “Where can I find an outpatient rehab with high-quality, customized programs that will give me the best chances of success?” The answer to that question is WhiteSands Treatment Center.
We tailor our outpatient alcohol rehab and detox programs according to the specific needs of each patient based on age, health, history, and other considerations, so we offer treatment programs of varying intensity. However, all of these programs will involve regular visits to the treatment center (often three days a week) and include frequent and in-depth cognitive behavioral therapy. After spending full days in our private rehab facility, you will be able to return home in the evenings. Many of the people in our outpatient programs take part after their therapist has recommended stepping down from inpatient rehab or a partial hospitalization program.
During your time at the treatment center, our professional team of board-certified doctors, educators, nurses, psychiatrists, and counselors will closely monitor your physical and psychological progress, so your treatment program will be continually customized as necessary. In individualized therapy, you will explore the underlying reasons for your substance abuse and learn new coping mechanisms that will reduce the risk of future relapse. Meanwhile, the group therapy program will give you a chance to share stories with other peers who have been through similar experiences, and you will benefit from their wisdom and experience. The bonds formed with other patients in the treatment facility can provide motivation to succeed in rehab and will continue to encourage you to work toward recovery once you leave the treatment center as well.
Why do we fall prey to drug addiction? Many factors can come into play. At WhiteSands, we will carefully assess your individual situation before making a joint decision about whether you are likely to recover in the context of an outpatient program. Some people may struggle in this type of setting, even if they have been making good progress, and may need to receive inpatient treatment for a while longer. For example, if ongoing problems at home or at work represent a significant part of the reason why you were attracted to substance abuse in the first place, continuing to deal with these triggers while you are away from the drug treatment center may harm you and delay your rehabilitation. The same is true if you might find it hard to stay away from a social group of fellow addicts who do not share your desire to live a sober, healthy life. If you do seem like a good fit for our outpatient programs, you can expect random drug screenings during your treatment. This applies to all of our patients; we want to ensure that all members of the WhiteSands community are continuing to be honest and forthright about their progress.
There are many reasons why particular patients might prefer the option of intensive outpatient treatment. Firstly, there is the matter of cost. Living in a drug treatment center in order to take part in an inpatient rehabilitation program is more expensive than visiting the same center on an outpatient basis. Secondly, outpatient alcohol treatment or drug abuse treatment gives you the opportunity to continue with many aspects of your regular life while working toward becoming sober. You may be able to uphold work responsibilities, you will be able to see your family, and if you are studying to obtain a degree, then this is still achievable while you are in an outpatient program. Thirdly, being able to see family members and close friends can go a long way toward providing you with valuable support during recovery that helps to prevent relapses. Indeed, you can continue to get this type of support while also benefiting from being a part of the close community at WhiteSands, allowing you to have the best of both worlds.
Once you are ready to leave the intensive outpatient program behind, we will help to find support groups in your community and aid you in finding a local therapist. People who leave our intensive outpatient program will be endowed with the types of decision-making skills required to continue to maintain sobriety, and they will receive continued contact from WhiteSands. We are interested in the happiness and well-being of our community members long after they leave the treatment center.
You deserve to be free from the devastating cycles of drug and alcohol addiction.

Alternative treatment programs for drug addiction describes an array of healing modalities other than traditional Western medicine and therapies. Advancements in technology have expanded research parameters that facilitate a greater understanding for different types of alternative addiction treatment.
In some cases, modern scientists have been able to validate the effectiveness of some of these alternative remedies that for centuries has been used to address the symptoms of addiction in different cultures. And, in the last few decades, the holistic approach to addiction treatment that integrates traditional and alternative remedies has been shown to significantly reduce criminal inclination.
The basis for the incorporation of various types of alternative addiction treatment into the rehabilitation process is to provide a wider spectrum of treatment tools to address the myriad of effects that are produced by chronic substance abuse. The holistic approach to addiction treatment achieves this objective through cohesive and comprehensive treatment regimens that can be personalized for a greater number of patients. Another benefit of the holistic approach to addiction treatment is that it veers from the one-size-fits-all drug rehabilitation procedures of the past.
There are many different alternative treatment programs for drug addiction that are available today. Nutritional therapy, exercise, yoga, meditation and biofeedback are some of the most popular with addiction treatment professionals and patients. In fact, for some patients, they are considered to be essential components of their recovery process. Other alternative addiction treatment models that are singularly recognized for their contribution to drug rehabilitation include:
Art Therapy has been gaining inroads as an effective alternative addiction therapy for the treatment of addiction. Through a process of artistic self-expression, patients are encouraged to explore deep-seated emotional issues that drive addiction and produce symptoms of anxiety, depression and suicide ideation to name a few.
Art therapists employ a variety of techniques that are designed to reinforce self-nurturance and reduce emotional imbalances. Margaret Naumburg, renowned educator and psychologist was one of the first in her field to define art therapy as a distinct form of psychotherapy in the 1940s. In the Art Therapy Sourcebook, Research Psychologist Cathy Malchiodi describes it as a “modality for self-understanding, emotional change, and personal growth.”
Yoga is a form of exercise that helps to promote spirituality and a sense of calm, relaxation, and tranquility within the body, mind, and spirit. WhiteSands Treatment employs yoga therapy as an alternative form of addiction recovery and healing. We believe that yoga is a fantastic form of exercise that helps to promote a healthy lifestyle in all aspects of life.
Our certified yoga instructors teach participants certain breathing exercises that can have a significant effect on helping them to concentrate on channeling negative thoughts, worries, or fears that they are susceptible to once they’ve begun to embark on their road to recovery. Yoga helps to address side effects associated with substance abuse and addiction, such as anger, irritability, aggression, depression, tiredness, anxiety, impulsivity, etc.
Chiropractic Care is a treatment that involves the manual adjustment or stimulation of the spine, joints, and muscles. It helps with pain management, in which our chiropractors apply pressure to the individuals’ painful areas.
Addiction can often lead to painful withdrawal symptoms and as a result, the threat of relapse is always present. This treatment method helps to ease these symptoms, along with any of preexisting pain that may have contributed to the individual's past drug use.
Alternative treatment programs for drug addiction include various other healthcare practices and therapies that utilize components of Ayurveda medicine, chiropractic services, energy medicine, homeopathy, naturopathy, and traditional Chinese medicine, as well as faith-based recovery tools.
In addition to increased scientific evaluation, the effectiveness of alternative addiction treatments are supported by empirical research and testimonies from patients that have experienced firsthand, their effectiveness through attending our alternative treatment programs for drug addiction here at WhiteSands Treatment.
We have several outpatient offices located throughout Florida where patients partake in relapse prevention and after programming. Once inpatient treatment has been successfully completed, patients are encouraged to attend these constructive programs that help teach imperative coping mechanisms and trigger management skills.
We also offer an Alumni program for those who have completed their inpatient treatment program. Our Tampa Alumni Program encourages members to carry on in their life of sobriety. Life after addiction is a major adjustment for many which are why our alumni services work to continually motivate and support recovering addicts to continue in the positive direction they are going.
All Alumni are welcome to partake in ongoing meetings, events, and outings as part of the ongoing recovery process of addiction. Our experienced counselors will provide you with valuable guidance as a way to promote wellness while connecting over stories of strength and hope.
Returning home after your time in addiction treatment can be a hard transition. Let us help you by guiding you on the right path in re-navigating your life.
Call WhiteSands Treatment today at (877) 640-7820 to learn more about the Alumni Program and how to join.
Recovering from an addiction is a life-long commitment; it takes long-term dedication and maintenance. It is easy for a patient to fall back into the same dangerous patterns after rehabilitation if they do not remain mindful of their recovery process. Anyone in recovery can fall victim to addiction again, even after years of sobriety. Therefore, it is necessary for each individual to find a way to properly manage their cravings. White Sands Treatment Center provides a variety of programs that give patients access to the knowledge and tools required for life-long success as long as one stays motivated. SMART recovery is a relatively new program that our center utilizes, as it has been proven to deliver positive results.
The Self-Management and Recovery Training program takes a logical, scientific, non-confrontational and motivational approach to maintaining sobriety. Patients who participate in SMART recovery will learn in a highly supportive environment and study methods of recovery that come from evidence-based research. Abstinence from substance abuse is sustained through this innovative and interactive program. Recovery is a constantly evolving process and SMART recovery programs grow with each patient, as they gain more confidence, knowledge, and headway.
This 4-point program is a self-empowering support system; primary tools focus on facilitating each patient’s growth through self-management skills, which are tailored to help addicts maintain sobriety from many forms of addictive behavior. Some of these behaviors include alcoholism, prescription, and illicit drug abuse, sexual addictions, eating disorders, and gambling. WhiteSands Treatment Center employs the latest remedial procedures, based on current scientific research and interaction with the community outside of rehabilitation. Our 4-Point Program offers tools for each specific program point. These points include:
Patients are encouraged to practice each tool, as well as learn how each one can help them progress towards point 4 of the program. The face-to-face SMART recovery meetings offered at White Sands consist of in-depth discussions regarding ways in which to apply the various SMART tools in a practical manner. These discussions may include tools such as:
SMART recovery methods help addicts find independence from addiction through programs centered around scientific knowledge, as opposed to more spiritually based programs. Although SMART recovery may differ from programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, 12-step programs or other self-empowering groups, it does not necessarily exclude them. In our SMART recovery programs, we believe that each individual finds their own path to recovery and here at White Sands, we can help them construct this path. Through self-management and recovery training, achieving lifestyle balance is possible.

Individuals will be allotted free time every day where they can enjoy many of the sought-after amenities offered directly on the facility grounds.

Q: You were operating a successful marketing company, what made you decide to get into the rehab industry?
A: Mike Tyson and I were partners in Iron Mike Productions, which was a boxing promotion agency. Throughout the time spent with Mike, he would often speak about his battles with addiction and substance abuse and the struggles he faced both in and out of the ring. Hearing his struggles made me think, ‘what could we do to help others who are struggling with addiction and substance abuse?’ We then came together to form ‘KO Addiction’; an organization that raises awareness about the growing drug epidemic in the United States. During boxing events, KO Addiction would promote sobriety and provide resources and access to help for those who needed it.
An employee at the marketing company that I had at the time, Joe Ducey, would also speak about his history of addiction and his experiences at different rehab centers. Hearing Mike and Joe’s substance abuse stories resonated with me and I began to realize that substance abuse was extremely prevalent. Joe expressed a significant interest in helping people get into treatment and felt that facilities that truly cared about patients' recovery were lacking. He came up to me one day and asked, ‘why don’t we open up a treatment center’? He knew that the treatment facility sector could use us and with my marketing background and Joe’s history of addiction treatment at various facilities, we knew that we had a great opportunity to succeed.
I sent Joe on a 60-day mission to research what the best treatment centers across Florida offer. If we were going to get into the treatment industry, we were going into it by striving to be the best, offer the best, and raise the bar as it relates to providing the highest quality of treatment to patients without compromise.
Q: How did you turn that idea into the successful treatment center that WhiteSands is today?
A: What it boiled down to was execution: something needed to be done in the addiction treatment industry to make it better and we wanted to be the ones to make it happen. My previous internet marketing experience had its advantages and it gave us an upper hand once the ball got rolling on our idea to create a treatment center that was better than the rest. We were able to hire the best medical and clinical staff without ever sacrificing treatment and the quality of care our patients received. We are successful because we keep the business side of things separate from the medical and clinical side, making us a cut above the rest.
Q: What were some of the things that went into WhiteSands being a premier treatment center?
A: We consistently address our philosophy which is, ‘not cramming in guests like sardines’. We understand that it is hard enough to ask for help and to seek treatment; the last thing we wanted to do was send patients to an overcrowded, crammed facility that strips them of their privacy and space. We make treatment easier and less challenging by providing a campus-style facility for patients during their stay. The large tranquil grounds allow patients to recharge and feel relaxed at the end of the day so that they are mentally and physically rested and prepared to take on their next day in treatment. By providing recreational activities, gazebos, walking paths, and a host of amenities for guests to enjoy, they have a better chance of obtaining long-lasting recovery. We do not make treatment an episode of survivor where, over time, your mental and physical condition worsens. We make sure that guests get better over their course of time in treatment.
Q: What’s the future for WhiteSands?
A: We have opened several office locations throughout Florida such as assessment offices where patients can walk in and meet with an addiction specialist who can help guide them toward recovery. We have also opened several outpatient offices. Once patients have completed their inpatient treatment, they will be sent back to their hometowns where they can meet with a therapist at one of our outpatient office locations so that they can continue to get the help and support needed to sustain their sobriety.
