White Sands Treatment Center offers our patients a wide array of treatment programs that support their journey toward recovery and healthy sustainability. Our goal is to provide the necessary tools that will enable the patient to recover from substance abuse and avoid relapse as they begin life anew with purpose and joy.
Patients are given a physical and psychological evaluation before they begin our Inpatient Detox Program. The detox process is designed to slowly wean the patient off of the drugs or alcohol. We provide a safe and effective detox treatment and monitor the patient throughout the process. Treatment includes medications for withdrawal symptoms, psychological distress and disorders. Our medical staff is knowledgeable and compassionate and will safely ease the patient through the detox process.
Psychological Counseling will educate the patient about addiction to drugs and alcohol and reveal why it has happened to them. Understanding the genetic and psychological components of addiction help the patient uncover the physical and psychological processes that were at work to hold them in bondage to addiction. Once understood, the patient will become equipped with new and healthy thought and behavior strategies to overcome triggers, urges, stress, abuse, negative thinking and cravings.
Addicts often struggle with Co-occurring Mental Disorders such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, schizophrenia, etc. Some addicts take drugs and alcohol to alleviate their mental distress while others develop mental disorders because of their substance abuse. Either way the problem exists and needs to be treated. Individual psychological counseling and pharmaceutical intervention may both be needed to assist the patient in attaining mental stability.
The Partial Hospitalization treatment program at White Sands Treatment Center is designed for patients who still need some medical monitoring. Candidates for this program must have a safe and supportive home environment and be able to attend and fully participate with inpatients at the Center. The patient attends the Center for 3 to 5 days per week for up to 6 hours per day as an outpatient.
The Christian Treatment Program at White Sands Treatment Center is offered as an alternative form of treatment although we do welcome people of every faith and persuasion. This program is available to any patient who has finished the detox program and it includes prayer, interaction with other Christians and church attendance. During psychotherapy, the patient will learn how Christianity empowers them to establish new ways of thinking and behavior as they become a new creation in Christ.
The Women’s Treatment Program at White Sands Treatment Center is designed to meet the specific needs of women. Usually women will exhibit more severe addiction symptoms than men and they often suffer from co-occurring mental disorders. Women also suffer from guilt and shame because of their addiction and its subsequent effect on preventing them from fulfilling their expected gender roles as nurturer and mentor within the family.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a debilitating mental illness that often leads to substance abuse as a means of escape. The psychological effects of experiencing traumatic events bring all sorts of chaotic mental and physical disturbances to the victim. PTSD can be caused by war, military combat, severe accidents, natural disasters, sexual or physical abuse, etc. The professional staff at White Sands Treatment Center is well equipped to handle the fragile nature of PTSD patients while dispelling the fear and debilitating symptoms of this disorder.
