Fort Myers, Florida -
Fort Myers, FL - A recent collaboration between WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab and the NFT project Bored Mummy Waking Up has resulted in a financial assistance fund that has helped multiple people receive addiction treatment they could not otherwise afford.
NFTs (non-fungible tokens) are a rapidly growing digital art form in which unique units of data, usually images as in the case of Bored Mummy Waking Up, are stored on a blockchain, in this case, the popular Ethereum blockchain. NFTs are collectible artworks that can be sold, traded, or held onto and treasured like any other piece of art.
WhiteSands is an alcohol and drug rehab that operates two inpatient and fourteen outpatient locations across the state of Florida. They were ranked the number one addiction treatment center in Florida the past two years in a row by Newsweek magazine. WhiteSands specializes in dual diagnosis treatment, meaning they treat mental health conditions in tandem with substance use disorders. Mental health disorders like depression, anxiety, and PTSD are frequent causes of addiction. Dual diagnosis treatment explores and heals the root causes of substance abuse helping to facilitate lasting transformative changes in patients.
The addiction treatment NFT collaboration was born out of Bored Mummy Waking Up’s desire to donate a portion of its proceeds to altruistic causes. At the same time, WhiteSands was interested in creating a fund that would help people in desperate situations afford much-needed care. The resulting collaboration has yielded life-changing results for seven people so far.
Aspects of these seven stories will be familiar to anyone who’s struggled with substance use disorder. One recent recipient was a WhiteSands alumnus who fell into hard times when she lost a family member. Overwhelmed and struggling to cope, she relapsed back into alcohol abuse. As she started drinking again, she also lost her job.
When a person can’t afford treatment, even with health insurance, things can quickly go from bad to worse. It’s in cases like these that the WhiteSands financial assistance fund can be life-saving. WhiteSands was able to pay this woman’s insurance deductible so she could access professional help. Alcohol use disorder is a manageable mental health condition. With effective treatment, a person can get back on track and successfully manage their addiction symptoms. See WhiteSands reviews for further validation they help change lives.
The NFT rehab collaboration also aims to shed light on the struggles people with addiction often face. Both WhiteSands and Bored Mummy Waking Up hope to generate awareness of mental health disorders, including substance use disorders, and erode the stigma around seeking treatment for both. They believe that greater awareness can facilitate greater access to treatment so that the people who need it most can get the help they require.
WhiteSands is grateful for Bored Mummy Waking Up’s generous contribution and hopes to continue to help as many people as possible with the funds. “We are very excited to have the opportunity to extend a hand now for individuals truly in desperate need,” said a WhiteSands representative.
