We Have First-Hand Experience with Addiction
The Dunes Luxury Rehab Center on Long Island is proud to offer a staff that has personal experience with addiction
The Dunes East Hampton staff has more than 350 years of collective sobriety. Our management and clinical staff members know, from their own experience, the fears, anxieties and resistance that drug and alcohol addicts face when confronted with having to go into a recovery facility.
The Dunes addiction treatment specialists fully understand the rationalizations that keep addicts from getting well and healthy. We also know how those first days and weeks of withdrawal affect the addicted individual. This knowledge allows us to effectively support them during the critical early days of recovery.
At The Dunes on Long Island, clients benefit from our staff’s ability to empathetically relate to their experiences, having successfully coped with their own addictions. This ability to connect is the core of our strong staff-to-client relationship. It is an essential quality necessary to foster a rapport between clients and their clinicians, counselors and advocates and achieve an environment of acceptance, trust and honesty.

The Power of Example Brings Hope Alive
We have found that clients recognize the sobriety our staff members enjoy and develop a sense of hope for themselves. Hope starts replacing the desperation, fears and denial that are so pervasive with addicts who are entering a recovery experience. With hope comes client open-mindedness and willingness to find solutions to their problems. The Dunes staff can then help clients quickly begin their path to recovery, and towards a full and satisfying addiction-free life.
Staff members know, from personal experience with recovery, the thoughts and triggers that tempt someone to relapse. They can share their own success as they deal with these same instances with clients. The “Power of Example” set by our staffers is the key that opens the door to enable our clients to benefit from the unique clinical protocols that Dr. Howard J. Shaffer has created for The Dunes East Hampton.
