Our Services

White Sands Tampa is passionate about the services that we provide. By providing quality medical, educational, and medical services to both the addicts and their families, we are reassuring these individuals that we know what we’re doing.


Counseling Services in White Sands Tampa Treatment Center

We have a phenomenal medical detox services team that is dedicated towards making the detox process as safe and comfortable as possible. Withdrawal symptoms can be extremely dangerous, painful, and highly uncomfortable. We understand how fearful a newly recovering addict is when confronted with the idea of withdrawal.

The medications administered during medical detox help make the symptoms much more manageable, and in some cases, even eradicate them altogether. Our goal is to make the initial recovery process as easy and effective as possible.

Educational Services in White Sands Tampa Treatment Center

Our educational services are paramount to the addict and addict’s family to gather the clearest possible insight as to what to expect before, during, and after the treatment process.

It’s through this education process that the addict and their family can truly heal. By setting the right boundaries with one another and understanding the disease of addiction to its fullest extent, everyone will then be able to accept one another – even through their character defects.

It’s also necessary for everyone to understand how this disease has affected everyone negatively and to practice forgiveness techniques upon making amends to one another.
