A drug detox program guided by hope

Addiction does not discriminate.  The disease of addiction can affect anyone.  But there is hope!  Overcoming addiction is possible, one day at a time.  Each person in our leadership team has personally come to understand that the peace, love, and acceptance that can be found in recovery truly influences change.  More importantly, each have witnessed first-hand the blessings that come to those that strive to live a life of sobriety.

Professionally, we have learned that it is important to meet a patient where they are in their journey.  In our many roles working in addiction medicine, we have learned that the detox process can be an intervention period with the power to impact one’s path to recovery.  We are humbled by the opportunity to help each patient find hope and healing, propelling them to keep them moving forward.

The goal at White Sage Recovery is to offer a positive detox experience that promotes hope.  Each member of the White Sage team will be in a position to influence the patient’s direction and attitude about sobriety.  Through their individual experiences, their desire to help others, and their willingness to offer care that is nonjudgmental and kind, our staff members can influence the first steps toward a life that is free from addiction.  We are committed to supporting and encouraging our patients, and their loved ones, in their individual journeys toward healing and change.
