There aren’t enough words to describe how amazing the entire staff and treatment experience was for me at White Sands! I was scared to death when I arrived, but was quickly comforted by the staff AND the patients already there! If you are willing, or even not willing, to totally surrender and follow their program, you WILL NOT be let down! I miss my White Sands staff and family! I have made life time friends, and never felt so comfortable being surrounded by people with the disease of addiction! It was truly the only thing I’ve ever done for myself, and the BEST decision I ever made! The tools and support I took home with me are priceless! White Sands saved my life! The White Sands Alumni staff keeps in touch with me on a regular bases, and has been an amazing support! I HIGHLY recommend White Sands! ❤️

My Counselor Brian was just fabulous. I learned so much from him and he made me focus on issues I never thought of. He also suggested Smart Recovery as an alternative. The techs, medical staff and all the administrative staff were so sensitive to my needs and the issues I needed to address, I would highly recommend White Sands in Fort Meyers.

This has been such a journey. This is my second time having to come to White Sands. Ultimately, this has changed my life. The nurses, techs and support groups have been awesome and very gentle when it comes to my recovery. Because of White Sands, I a moving onto my next step in life. I will be transitioning to White Sands IOP. I am looking forward to everything my higher power and my sponsor has in store for me here in Fort Myers.

From the moment I walked in I felt safe and cared about. I learned so many things about myself and began to understand my addiction. We had amazing counselors and groups. Everyone there patients, techs, nurses, housekeeping, doctors, kitchen staff, Don, store manager, after care, (that to this day a year later are still here by my side) and instructors all contributed to helping me feel joy and happiness again. On a daily basis I think of my experience at White Sands and feel extremely blessed and grateful to be a part of the White Sands family. Absolutely the best decision I've ever made!

Life changing. The first words that come to mind when I think about my time at White Sands. I can't thank all of the staff enough for the help and guidance that they gave me. From the first phone call, admissions process, tech staff, medical, and all of the counselors, there was one priority, and that was to guide me into a new kind of life that was completely unknown to me the day that I stepped foot through the front doors. Know that any program cannot cure you from any type of addiction, but if you give this program all that you have, the results are nothing short of a miracle. White Sands taught me the skills and tools that I would need to stay sober. They helped me build a solid foundation, so that when I walked back out those front doors, I was able to start building a new sober life in recovery, a life that I am now living. With willingness, anything is possible. Remember, stars can't shine without darkness.

White sands is a really beautiful facility. The staff showed me compassion and understanding in a time when I did not feel I deserved it. If you are looking for a treatment program that will continue to care about you long after you’ve completed their program, white sands has done that. This place changed me and helped me start my new life. It has been over 3 years and I am forever grateful ❤️

White Sands is a fabulous treatment center! The groups are very interesting, yoga and meditation are excellent! I got a lot of 1 on 1 time with counseling. The rooms are very comfortable. Recreation time and group trips to the park and beach was SO helpful to my recovery! The staff is friendly and always supportive. Very nice to visit the chiropractor and massage therapist also!

Just like any addict, I was stubborn in leaving for treatment. I came to White Sands with the idea of getting sober .I left there with so much more. Such as the gifts of self, honesty and finding who I am. I feel like I know who I am now. White sands taught me how love myself for the first time .I no longer hate myself .The staff was absolutely over the top .The help I was recieved was remarkable .I always had someone to turn to .I never felt alone. The staff invested their Time into always making sure I was alright .I knew they truly cared about my recovery as much as I did.

The people here, at all levels of the organization, give their heart and soul for the common purpose to help those suffering from the disease of addiction. I've experienced it first hand and can attest to their highest levels of commitment, day in and day out. I have made great progress and lasting recovery relationships. I am feeling alive, confident and excited about my life for the very first time. I still stay connected with them thru their continuing care program.

I wouldn't suggest any other treatment center than White Sands Treatment Center. My experience there was like no other when it came down to addiction and treatment. Here I was able to experience a whole new light on what it resembled to be calm and maintain sobriety within the process of having fun with all the great activities that are given here. Here you get to learn everything about what's going on inside and out through the wonderful staff which are all exceptionally pleasant and so full of knowledge. If not for the White Sands Treatment Center, I wouldn't be who I am today. I truly am thankful for such a place.

The White Sands Treatment Center gave me my life back!!! Going to rehab was one of the hardest choices of my life, yet they made it most fulfilling. I learned a lot about myself and ways to live drug free. Every client is treated with respect and dignity. The staff is very proficient and work with every patient on an individual level as well as in a group setting. The accommodations make you feel like you are at home.

Great locations and wonderful looking houses. Groups are informative and well instructed regardless of which staff member facilitates them. This program actually cares for the people who live within these houses by giving individuals renewed opportunities and working with them when they can't accomplish something they are required to do. Overall a great place to attend and would recommend this to anyone.

My experience at White Sands was remarkable. In all honesty it is the best treatment center I have been to accurately treating my substance abuse and occurring-disorder. I am not a first timer or third timer in recovery I say this only to qualify on my opinion and experience at White Sands Fort Myers. I feel very blessed to have been in the care of these wonderful people. I was a patient during Hurricane Irma and they took every precaution necessary to make me feel safe and truly cared about. The clinical director Lindsey even stated to me "You are our #1 priority". The owner and chief operators of this facility even stayed on property with us to ensure our safety. I would recommend this place in a heartbeat to any seeking SINCERE help with addiction and/or co-occurring disorders. My therapist who I am not sure if I can mention her name was incredible getting to the root of my problems and addressing them accurately with a detailed plan of action. This is not a one size fits all place. You are allowed to explore many avenues of recovery. Here is where I had my spiritual awakening. I am grateful, proud, and extremely happy to say I was a patient here.

The many layers of support became apparent, and my life began to change. I will be forever greatful to White Sands and the staff and friends I met there.

The staff at White Sands was incredible. They taught me how to feel again and how to understand my feelings. Many of the BHT's are in recovery which provided much hope.

When I went in to White Sands, I was lost and confused. I was at a point where I hit a wall and didn't know where to go in life. Every employee in white sands welcomed me with open arms even though I was being difficult. It took a few days for me to get into the swing of things but when I did, I was the happiest I had been in a long time. The groups they offer there are some of the best groups I've ever attended and brought out a lot of stuff that I had refused to address before or that I completely ignored. They helped me learn to address those problems in a healthy way that will keep me clean and sober. The doctors, the nurses, the therapists and the techs are all amazing and made my stay at White Sands a great experience. I would definitely recommend this place to the addict that feels lost, alone, or afraid. The atmosphere here will make you finally feel like you're not alone and you can live a life of happiness for the first time in your addiction.
