The Connection Between Mental Health Disorders and Addiction Until recently,... Read More
There is no denying the fact that alcoholism is a debilitating disease. Unlike acquiring and consuming other drugs such as cocaine or heroin, purchasing alcohol is completely legal. You can simply go to a liquor store first thing in the morning or sit down at a bar as soon as it opens and start drinking.
If you are struggling with an alcohol addiction, the Legacy Healing Center team is here to help you. We work with you to design a personalized treatment plan that suits your lifestyle and recovery needs. Our team is available around the clock to supply you with the support and reassurance that you need to overcome your addiction.
If you are still in active addiction, before you begin treatment, we always recommend that you first go through our alcohol detox program. Regardless of the length of your addiction, within hours of having your last drink your body will begin to go through withdrawal.
Withdrawal symptoms manifest in different ways. There are some patients who begin to feel sick and are nauseous while there are others that experience shakes and shivers. In my severe cases, however, there is a possibility that you could experience a seizure during the detox process. Due to the potentially dangerous or lethal consequences of detox, we strongly recommend that you never try to go through the detox process without the assistance of a trained professional.
When you initially call our facility, please let us know if you are still drinking. Our specialist can walk you through the important information you need to know about our detox program. You can rest assured that you will be in excellent hands from the moment you enter our facility.
Absolutely beautiful! Staff is so caring and welcoming. Highly recommend to anyone who is struggling and looking to heal. This is the place for you!
Legacy really changed my life for the better. I was down and out, my life in shambles and didn’t know what to do. Legacy showed me there was a light at the end of the tunnel and gave me the tools to get there. The staff at this facility are genuine and truly care and it shows.
Kaleb was well on his way to being another death sta-tistic victim to Heroin addiction. God led us to Legacy Healing Center. They treated him with love and respect. Showing true concern and patience. Kaleb is a life saved. He is thriving and making positive life choices. His potential is unlimited!
Wonderful staff, the treatment program was excellent. They really treat you like family here and genuinely care about you. The 4 months I’ve spent here have been great, I’ve learned a lot about myself and ways to cope with my struggles.
I’ve been to a few treatment centers and this one is by far the best from the living quarters to the clinical and therapeutic experience. 5/5 would recommend. They continue to reach out and stay in contact.
Legacy Healing Center saved my life. The entire staff focuses on every individual as a separate case. No one is left behind. I wouldn’t be here without the staff at Legacy.
Honestly, it’s not what you imagine when thinking “detox.” Legacy made my experience so comfortable from beds, food, staff and such a clean facility. Besides all that they literally gave me life back. Forever thankful.
More often than not, when a person turns to alcohol, he or she is doing so due to a past event that has caused them trauma. Whether it is something that has happened in your childhood or an event that you have not been able to process as an adult, while you are at our facility our counselors will help you to explore the various factors in your life that may have led you toward your addiction.
In some cases, there is an underlying mental illness that was previously undiagnosed. Part of what we offer at our facility is the chance to take part in behavioral therapy which can help address certain mental illnesses. This supplies you with the opportunity to begin treatment that not only addresses your addiction but also explores managing any mental illness.
With years of experience in the addiction industry, our team understands the importance of incorporating various forms of therapy into your recovery plan. A leading form of therapy that we offer is group therapy. These therapy sessions are done in a 12-step meeting format. One of our counselors will lead a session that could cover an assortment of subjects. You will be given the chance to speak about your thoughts, feelings, and addiction experiences. Attending group therapy is also an excellent way to develop your own support system because during these sessions you will also listen to the experiences of other attendees. Making connections with other people in your group is an excellent way to develop new and sober relationships.
It’s understandable that you may not always feel comfortable sharing your personal thoughts in a group setting. Our counselors make the time to schedule individual therapy sessions with you so that you can go into further details about how you are feeling throughout your program.
Once you complete your course of treatment at the Legacy Healing Center, it’s important that you develop healthy habits and routines once you return home. Cherry Hill is filled with sober friendly and family friendly activities that you can take part in that will help keep you on the path toward sobriety. Here are a few of our top choices.
Cooper River Park
Did you know that developing an exercise routine is one of the best things that you can do while you are recovering from an addiction? If you enjoy running or walking, you should make time to visit Cooper River Park. This park is filled with beautiful running and walking trails as well as bike paths alongside a river that runs through the middle of the park. The park is open seven days a week between 7 AM and 8 PM.
The Clementon Park and Splash World
Everyone is always looking for a way to beat the heat during the dog days of summer. If you are interested in visiting a family friendly waterpark, Clementon Park and Splash World is a great choice. This waterpark is one of the oldest amusement parks in the United States and features a myriad of water and theme rides. The house for the park varies so you should always check ahead before you plan your day.
Jake’s Place Playground
Jake’s Place Playground is a great playground to take children of all ages. This playground was specifically designed to incorporate features that children with learning disability would enjoy. Children could easily spend hours running around this expansive property and enjoying the large jungle gym features.
