WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehabilitation partners with the NFT Project to provide financial assistance to people in need of addiction treatment

PLANT CITY, Jan. 31, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Plant City, Fla. —

Plant City, FL – Florida’s premier addiction treatment center, WhiteSands, has partnered with NFT project Bored Mummy Waking Up (BMWU) to provide financial support to people in need of addiction treatment. Bored Mummy Waking Up is donating a portion of the proceeds from its recent NFT release to a grant fund set up by WhiteSands. The Addiction Treatment Center will disburse funds on a case-by-case basis to people who would not otherwise have access to their treatment.

NFTs (non-fungible tokens) are an exciting new medium that combines art with blockchain (crypto) technology to create unique, non-exchangeable digital files that can be valued, traded, or sold. Bored Mummy Waking Up runs on the popular Ethereum (ETH) blockchain.

The partnership is a timely development as rates of substance use disorders and drug overdoses soar in the United States. Financial help for addictions can help transform the lives of those who don’t have the means to seek treatment — and that of Newsweek’s #1 Florida addiction treatment center for no less than two years in a row.

By consistently raising the standard of care in addiction treatment, WhiteSands has established itself as the leading drug and alcohol addiction treatment center in Florida. They operate 3 inpatient facilities and 18 outpatient centers across the state to make it easier for people to access treatment close to home. Through evidence-based behavioral therapies and a holistic approach to treatment, WhiteSands helps up to 300 people a month recover from the root causes of addiction.

The collaboration between WhiteSands and Bored Mummy Waking Up aims to improve access to effective treatment for those with the greatest care needs. The team also hopes to raise awareness about mental health and substance use disorders. WhiteSands also recently announced that they are accepting cryptocurrency as payment for addiction treatment.

The story goes on

As a dual diagnosis treatment center, WhiteSands recognizes that mental illnesses such as depression, anxiety, PTSD and bipolar disorder are often the driving forces behind substance abuse. People often turn to alcohol and drugs to relieve their mental health symptoms. Substance abuse, in turn, aggravates the symptoms of mental disorders and creates a vicious cycle.

Fortunately, mental health awareness has gained prominence in recent years. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on mental health is well documented, and events like Mental Health Awareness Month have seen celebrities like Oprah Winfrey, Lady Gaga and Prince Harry get involved and share their stories.

Although mental health and addiction go hand-in-hand, many people find it difficult to talk about substance use disorders. The stigma surrounding addiction and addiction treatment is still strong. Stigma creates barriers to treatment and leaves countless people suffering in silence without receiving the help they need to overcome their illness.

Record-breaking numbers of drug overdose deaths (over 100,000 Americans last year) and the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic have made the need for an effective treatment greater than ever. Now is the time for communities, businesses and individuals to come together to fight for greater addiction awareness, higher standards of care and more access to life-saving addiction treatment.

Anyone who needs help with substance abuse, addiction, and co-occurring mental illness can speak to a treatment specialist at any time by calling (877) 855-3470. For those unwilling to speak, a live chat can be initiated online at www.whitesandstreatment.com.
