WhiteSands Treatment Center was founded in 2014 with the overarching philosophy that it was time to raise industry standards with respect to the quality of substance abuse treatment, comfortability of patients, and increased rates of long-term sobriety. We recognized that national relapse rates were abysmal and treatment protocols have remained stagnant for many years.
Our founders, CEO Garry Jonas and COO Joseph Ducey had a vision to create a treatment program that stood well above its competitors and that treated patients as individuals while also providing many of the comforts of their home environments.
WhiteSands hired accomplished Clinical Director, Dr. Lyndsay Henry, as the centerpiece for a strong clinical team. Dr. Henry accepted the position with the condition that ownership allow the clinical and medical teams to operate unrestrained regardless of expense to create the most effective treatment program.
White Sands Treatment Center was rated the #1 best addiction treatment center in Florida by Newsweek for the second year in a row.
