WhiteSands Treatment Centers

My name is Dori, from WhiteSands Treatment Centers.  WhiteSands currently operates two, well established, private residential substance abuse rehabilitation centers in Ft. Myers and Plant City.  I am very pleased to announce that we are expanding our services to more than 25 outpatient offices in Florida, and are on track to open these sites in the very near future.  To learn more about WhiteSands, I encourage you to review our website at your convenience.

To that end, I am in the process of identifying local substance abuse counselors/therapists who are interested in coming aboard at one or more of the IOP locations listed below, and who are open to receiving patient referrals for one on one therapy.  Our clients will be seeking various levels of outpatient services along the continuum of substance abuse care. To let us know you are interested in joining the WhiteSands family, or in becoming a referral resource, please send your resume in doc, docx or pdf format.  Remember to include the city or cities you are most interested in from those lists below.  Without knowing which city/cites you are inclined to, I will assume the address on your resume contains the only city that appeals to you.

You will find my contact information below. Email is the most efficient way to communicate with me.

Best regards,

Dorianne “Dori” Rubin

Bartley helped lay the groundwork for the center, her passions for mental health, fueled by her love for FGCU.
