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!

This place changed my life. I am forever grateful for the awesome staff. they are very compassionate and you can tell they truely care about their patients. I would recommend white sands to anyone struggling because these people will help you in your time of need. I’ve been clean ever since I finished their program....almost 2 years now!! Not to mention how beautiful and comfortable this place is. It’s not like your any average rehab facility. I loved every part of it and my experience there was awesome I couldn’t have done it without the people at white sands!!

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 beautiful facility, but more than that it is filled with beautiful people. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Everyone who works there sincerely cares about your well being. They take a one on one approach, focusing on each individual and giving you the specific tools needed to help combat addiction.

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!

I came to White sands on February 6,2018 and loved that place the very first moment I stepped thru its doors. The staff was to me amazing,they work with passion and love. Plus for a treatment center it was definitely above the rest! It was as close to perfect as could be! They need to expand to every state in this country. I salute White Sands treatment Center. Thank you for helping me save my life!!!!!!

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.

This place changed my life! They gave me all the tools I needed to make my life better. I highly recommend this place if you're serious about living your life sober

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.

I have a year sobriety! Thanks to White Sands. Being a local resident, I was not even aware that this facility was here. I'm so thankful to the staff for making my stay as comfortable as possible. I would recommend this place to everyone! Great environment and everyone was super caring.
