Orlando, FL - For a parent, there’s perhaps nothing more worrying than the prospect of your child developing an addiction to drugs and alcohol. For one Orlando mother, there was no option she wasn’t willing to explore to help her daughter Sawyer who was struggling with substance abuse. Fortunately, a family friend recommended WhiteSands and with their help, Sawyer was able to find lasting sobriety.
“My mom found WhiteSands through a friend of hers when I was at my lowest. I came down here and it was the best decision I’ve ever made,” she said.
Florida has an abundance of addiction treatment centers that attract clients from all over the country. But it’s important to know they’re not all created equally. For anyone searching for effective addiction treatment, either for themselves or a loved one, it’s critical to do your research and make sure you choose a reputable high-quality facility.
Some of the elements to look for in a great addiction treatment center include accreditation by an outside certifying agency, a wide variety of treatment programs and offerings, highly trained staff that are licensed and board-certified, and a large number of overwhelmingly positive reviews from former clients on third party sites like Google.
When Sawyer and her mom looked into WhiteSands they discovered a treatment center that offered all levels of care under one roof from medical detox to inpatient rehab to outpatient treatment and aftercare. They read hundreds of enthusiastic 5-star Google reviews from former patients online. They learned that WhiteSands had recently been rated the number one addiction treatment center in Florida by Newsweek magazine. And they found that WhiteSands operated from a perspective that was unique in the addiction treatment field: that patients’ level of comfort directly translated to better success in recovery.
At WhiteSands, Sawyer would be able to keep the personal items and creature comforts that made her feel safe like her cellphone and her laptop. She would stay in a private room with a queen-sized bed and ensuite private bathroom. And she would be able to enjoy a host of amenities that made the center feel more like a resort than what they imagined rehab might be like. These were features that other treatment centers didn’t offer and they made a big difference in making Sawyer feel comfortable about entering rehab.
“WhiteSands gave me the break I needed from everyday life. I was able to get all my issues worked on which fueled my addiction. I got in shape playing volleyball every day, being trained at the gym, and eating well. I also met true friends here which I will have for the rest of my life,” Sawyer said.
For anyone considering seeking treatment for substance use disorder, or trying to help a loved one get effective care, WhiteSands is available 24/7 to answer your questions and help start the admissions process. Call (877) 640-7820 or find them online at www.whitesandstreatment.com
