Saint Petersburg, Florida –
St. Petersburg, Fla. – A patient praises the care he received at WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab. He was so grateful for WhiteSands’ post-rehab aftercare program that he left an appreciative five-star review on Google.
“I struggled with alcohol and started here but needed a higher level of care‘ wrote former patient Steve. He praised two staff members, Patty and Steve, saying they “have been phenomenal in helping me get into the White Sands treatment center and provide excellent aftercare.”
WhiteSands is a comprehensive addiction program that has successfully guided patients to recovery from alcohol and drug addiction. In 2022, it was named Florida’s Best Treatment Center by Newsweek magazine for the third year in a row. It operates several luxury residential and outpatient facilities in Florida Cities, including St. Petersburg, where Steve has attended aftercare.
Treatment is designed to meet the individual needs of each patient, with numerous options for the appropriate therapy. Programs include inpatient medically assisted detoxification, inpatient intensive care, and day/night care, a transition program for inpatients transitioning to outpatient care. The staff is highly qualified and includes doctors and nurses trained in the diagnosis of psychopathology. All employees are comprehensively trained in dealing with addictions and substance-related disorders.
WhiteSands also provides a comfortable, nurturing physical and social environment in which patients can heal physically and emotionally. When not in treatment, they are treated as guests, not patients.
