WhiteSands Treatment will open their second drug and alcohol recovery center in the Tampa area after the demand for addiction treatment has grown in the area.
When a patient goes to the drug and alcohol recovery facility, they go through a difficult intake process. The substance abuse treatment center's plans are intended to cater to each patient's needs.
WhiteSands provides numerous addiction programs that include detox, inpatient and outpatient rehab, partial hospitalization, family therapy, alternative treatment, intervention as well as relapse prevention.
Relapse prevention is a plan that WhiteSands uses to assist patients in fighting off drug or alcohol cravings once they have gone through the detox process. The relapse prevention plan is to help the patient maintain long-term sobriety.
WhiteSands uses an addiction treatment plan that can be put toward each person's individual needs. Some of their addiction treatment options include a 12-step fellowship, residential treatment, peer support groups, holistic approaches and group and individual counseling.
The drug and alcohol recovery facility also uses specialty therapies that may be assigned to patients based on the level of their addiction. These include motivation therapy, contingency management, cognitive behavioral therapy, rational emotive behavior therapy, dialectical behavior therapy and family therapy.
