At WhiteSands Treatment Center, our philosophy revolves around the positive belief that everyone has the capacity to improve and grow. We know that you can overcome your limitations through changes in attitudes, habits, and behavior, and we are here to help you do just that! Alcohol abuse and drug addiction are chronic problems that affect both the body and the mind, so we don’t just treat physiological dependency; our dual diagnosis treatment programs also work to locate and change factors that might make it difficult to abstain from drug and alcohol abuse in the long term. We are entirely committed to helping you reach your fullest potential. We want to encourage and inspire you to have confidence and faith in yourself; to learn how to forgive not just yourself, but also those around you. Ultimately, recovery is about healing. Here at WhiteSands, we know that alcohol and drug addiction affects everyone differently. We maintain the creed that you deserve a customized treatment program tailored to your highly specific situation, so all of our alcohol and drug addiction treatment programs are updated and modified as an individual’s situation evolves. This careful process maximizes your chances of a successful recovery.

I’ve been to 5 different Rehabs, and WHITE SANDS is the only one I would recommend to anyone struggling with addiction. Most all the techs are in recovery, so the place has a comfortable non judgmental atmosphere. My counselor was absolutely AMAZING. I felt like I could talk to her about anything, they have a very good team of people that care tremendously about anyone that walks in the door. The houses are clean and nice, they provide lunch everyday and give you money every week for breakfast and dinner. Anyone that feels they have a struggle with addiction and wants help this is the place to go.. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Place is a joke. Spent $12,000 cash for 30 days. They released me early with certificates saying I did a full 30 days. Was told what money was left from leaving early would roll into my out patient but they declined it right when I went to leave. All the staff is former patients so they let you break the rules. Lots of sex between staff and patients. They know patients are sneaking out by the gym to go to the store for alcohol and drugs yet do nothing about it. They try to turn you against your loved ones. The whole thing was a waste of time and money.

White sands it self was the BEST treatment I've received. I absolutely loved the staff. The food was very good. I appreciate one on one counseling with my husband and counsler. They even have fluffy pillows. I was very grateful to have my own private room. But since I have left whitesands I have tried to get a copy of my medical records sent to my doctor and it seems impossible. I've left messages after messages with no return calls. No medical records.
