Our low patient-to-therapist ratio means that guests receive an unparalleled quality of personalized care and support. This also allows patients to build a trusting relationship with their therapist which will further aid in the recovery process. We have highly-accredited and certified clinicians on board that will help guide guests throughout each phase of treatment, from intake to discharge and beyond.Most facilities only offer large group meetings with limited access to one-on-one counseling and therapy.
It is extremely important to us to ensure that help is available when individuals need it most. This is why we have a full-time Medical Director and Psychologist on staff who provide guests with medical support and psychiatric aid; both of which are incorporated into the patient's unique treatment program.Other facilities will often have a part-time medical specialist and will not always have an office onsite.
Tailored, integrated treatment is crucial for those who struggle with both an underlying mental health disorder as well as an addiction to drugs or alcohol. We offer several treatment therapies for dual diagnosis patients. These include:
Medically assisted detox allows clinicians to stabilize and monitor the patient while also managing their symptoms. In our detox program, patients are tapered off of all narcotics under 24/7 medical care and are given additional medications as needed to combat symptoms of withdrawal. This ensures every patient is comfortable and safe during the hardest part of their stay. Read MoreGenerally, facilities refer detox to a partner, then brings the client back for their stay.
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 (727) 263-4536 to talk to our team of alcohol and drug treatment specialists about why WhiteSands is the perfect place to recover.
At WhiteSands, we offer an extensive variety of groups to patients as part of their treatment program. Some of the groups that we provide are:
Our facility provides patients with care and support even after they have been discharged from their inpatient stay. We offer aftercare programming upon discharge and will set up a therapist and sponsor for them. We have 50 locations throughout Florida consisting of Inpatient, Outpatient, and Admissions Offices, giving patients peace of mind knowing that help is close to home.Most facilities do not offer as many aftercare and relapse prevention options as we do.
Each patient will reside in their own newly renovated private room which is offered throughout the entire facility. The rooms feature a flat-screen TV, queen-sized bed, and a private bathroom which allows patients to be comfortable and relaxed before and after treatment hours.Other facilities may not offer private room options to their guests.
We offer a lenient cellphone and laptop policy. Patients are permitted to use their electronics in their private room between the hours of 6:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m., allowing them to keep in touch with family and friends. To protect the privacy of fellow patients, cellphone and laptop use are prohibited in common areas.Having this feature is very expensive to manage which is why most facilities do not offer this, but we go the extra mile to ensure that our guests have access to their personal electronic devices after treatment hours.
Our facility provides spacious accommodations situated on a campus-style site. Having a generously sized facility means that patients will not feel cramped or giving them the space to refocus their minds for further clarity. We offer cobblestone walking paths, streams, and gazebos for patients to enjoy, which can help alleviate the stress that is often associated with this time of change.The majority of facilities are often confined, hospital-style buildings converted into a facility with no room for amenities.
Patients can enjoy a host of amenities directly on-site such as a full-size gym, pool, basketball court, and volleyball court. Once your groups are complete for the day, these recreational activities can be enjoyed. We also offer visitation days where the family is invited to the facility to spend some quality time with their loved ones. Weekly outings are an important part of recovery which is why we coordinate fun off-site activities for patients to enjoy.Most centers do not offer the extensive amenities and activities that WhiteSands does, or does not offer amenities at all.
Our facility offers chiropractic care, massage therapy, yoga classes, a full-sized basketball court, and a workout gym for patients to enjoy.

“Amazing staff, therapists, and doctors. Accommodations are great... Nice rooms, catered food, vollyball, massage, biofeedback, chiropractor, basketball, beach and more. Definitely saved my life!!!”
“I wanted to stop my habit for a very long time trying on my own never worked I needed help and would never accept it. I finally had enough and gave in to acceptance and looked for help. I found WhiteSands and watched one of the videos they had of a guy around my same age talking about his story and how he found help from WhiteSands. 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. I’m forever grateful! I’d be dead or in prison if I didn’t get the help I needed. If you read this review your life is worth living. Give yourself a chance to change.”

My sister was in and out of detox so many times that she had almost given up. I told her just call White Sands and give yourself a chance. They got her into detox the NECT DAY and 30 days inpatient, no waiting list....This time when she left it wasn't just a week under her belt. She is still sober today... that tells you about this facility. They care and they help!
