Addiction Treatment

Addiction Treatment in Fort Myers FLAddiction treatment methodologies differ from rehab center to rehab center, and include standard, holistic, gender or age-based, religious treatments and more. At White Sands Treatment Center, we have created a comprehensive addiction treatment program that incorporates the best of each of these. Our goal is to help ensure our clients reach a lasting sobriety in rehab and enjoy a life in ongoing recovery.

Addiction treatment at White Sands starts with a medically-managed detox process, so that addicts can get clean and sober before they begin an individualized rehabilitation program. Recovering in the tranquil, home-like environment of our residential facility also allows patients to physically remove themselves from the people and places that may be enabling or encouraging their addictions.

Before and after detox, your intake team will work with you to design a drug treatment recovery plan that you can both accept and feel comfortable working within. This process is designed to help you feel empowered, and will reassure you that you in charge of your recovery and have admitted yourself into an environment of compassion and respect.

Detox and Withdrawal

The first crucial stage towards sobriety is detoxification, when a substance abuser withdraws from the alcohol or drugs that have caused their brain chemistry to depend on these substances to feel pleasure and well-being. The certified clinicians and medical staff at White Sands balance experience and expertise with support and compassion as they monitor and assist each patient through the detox process. Their top priority is to minimize the discomfort that can accompany detoxification as an addict moves toward the next step in the process of recovery and an addiction-free future.

The Detox Process

The process of detoxification effectively breaks the cycle of chemical dependence. Medications may be used to reduce any discomfort due to withdrawal symptoms. The experienced detox team at White Sands are experts at making the process as smooth as possible, and will be with you every moment to ensure your greatest comfort.

Once the detox process is complete, rehab in the form of various individual and group therapy sessions set in a holistic environment are designed to equip you with the tools you’ll need to help you reach a lasting sobriety.

Typically, our residential addiction treatment programs last between 30 to 60 days. White Sands offers three primary levels of care for addiction treatment:

Our clients gain greater insight into their own triggers, thought processes and emotions, and learn coping skills designed to help them achieve a successful recovery and sobriety that lasts a lifetime.
