According to Joe Ducey, WhiteSands’ Chief Operating Officer, “WhiteSands was built with the goal to elevate the standards of care in addiction treatment, to ensure that we are giving patients the best possible chance of sustaining long-term sobriety.”

The addiction treatment center appears to be living up to its goal. In addition to receiving hundreds of five-star reviews from patients like Matthew online, the rehab was recently ranked the number one addiction treatment center in the state of Florida by Newsweek magazine.

Some of the ways that WhiteSands is raising the bar in the field of addiction treatment include providing individualized treatment programs designed to meet the unique needs of each patient, employing board-certified medical staff onsite full time, offering patients an extended slow taper off of alcohol and narcotic drugs, maintaining a low patient to therapist ratio, offering state of the art amenities and holistic therapies, and focusing on the comfort safety and wellbeing of their clients in everything they do. WhiteSands abides by the philosophy that “a comfortable guest makes for a successful patient”. They have found in their experience that when patients feel comfortable and well cared for, they are far more open and receptive to treatment.

For recovering addicts like Matthew, the period of time just after completing a residential treatment program for drug and alcohol addiction can be an especially vulnerable one. This is the time when a person leaves the insulated environment of an inpatient treatment center and integrates back into the world outside. During this time, people must draw upon all the skills and tools they learned in rehab to stay on track in their recovery and prevent a dangerous relapse.
