White Sands Treatment Center employs a combination of the following staff members:
Board-certified Medical Doctors: Our general medical practitioners are on site daily to aid in the safe and least painful process of detoxification and withdrawals from alcohol and drugs. Our Doctors offer complete care and supervision in the assessment and evaluation from a medical perspective on the patient regaining health that was jeopardized or compromised through the abuse of addiction.
Psychiatrists: Our psychiatrists are at the core of the medical treatment team and perform a comprehensive and evaluation of the mental state and mental health of every patient that is admitted to White Sands Treatment Center. We know that without the proper diagnosis and professional treatment to any underlying disorders the patient?s chances for long term recovery are unsteady at best. This is why our psychiatrists spend the necessary hours to fully assess and daily observe the patients mental states, demeanor and behaviors in order to recommend if further, more specified symptoms need addressing.
Masters Level Therapists and Psychologists: Our licensed and certified psychological professionals are here to coordinate the emotional recovery and guide the patients back towards a positive overall emotional health. Our psychologists, therapists and social workers regularly meet with our patients to help them discover the reasons behind their behaviors and aid them to make conscious choices for a better life. They are core team members in coordinating the multidisciplinary care our patients receive.
Licensed Addiction Counselors: Our teams of licensed addiction counselors are specialists who head up the White Sands team of addiction recovery. They teach and guide our patients in the carrying out more healthy choices in their life situations and new daily sober living. These professionals are committed to empowering the addicted individuals and aid in helping them to uncover within both the will and the practical knowledge necessary to arm themselves against past addictive triggers and behaviors that can lead to a relapse. They aid in imparting life strategies for sober living that aid the patient when they leave the confines of White Sands Treatment Center and re-enter their own living situations. Our counselors will meet with family members in an effort to foster mutual understanding and establishing boundaries that will permit and encourage a deeper communication style that is built on mutual respect.
Directors: Our Director Executives have led the way at White Sands Treatment Center from its inception. It is through their leadership and tireless commitment to bringing the best in evidence based addiction treatment that empower the staff to extend every opportunity to our patients in their efforts to change their behaviors and adopt a clean and sober lifestyle. Our Directors are pivotal in the designing of the content and structure of our treatment programs, and are responsible for the success to date of the White Sands Treatment Center.
