Medications can be helpful, but not all of them work... Read More
Quiet Coral Springs has a drug problem. Broward County lost 1,642 souls to opioid overdoses in the year 2017. Some of those people overdosed on heroin. Drugs like cocaine account for 76 percent of all drug overdoses in the county. These are shocking numbers, but they don’t have to be as bad. Only about 10 percent of those who need rehab actually end up receiving it. If you suffer from an addiction, Legacy Healing Center, Coral Springs, offers intensive, immersive rehabilitation care in the form of inpatient drug rehab, to help you.
Rehab lasts anywhere from 30 days to 90 days to complete, in most cases. The length of time needed varies from one person to the next, depending on a number of factors. When you first sign up for inpatient drug rehab, addiction experts test and evaluate you to learn as much as they can about your physical and mental health, the substance levels in your bloodstream, about previous attempts that you’ve made at quitting, and the level of family support that you can count on.
After a thorough review of the specifics of your addiction and your case, the specialists in charge decide on a rehab period that lasts anywhere from four to 12 weeks.
Short rehab programs that last 30 days are intended for people whose addictions haven’t run very long. The typical patient at a short rehab program tends to be addicted to only one type of substance, doesn’t use it in large quantities, is in good health, and is motivated to get better.
Treatment begins with detoxification, where medical professionals help you taper off the drug that you’re addicted to, and counter the withdrawal symptoms that you experience, with medications, to ensure that you are as comfortable as possible. Discomfort is addressed, and medical attention helps make sure that none of the withdrawal symptoms pose a threat to your life.
Over time, as you emerge from withdrawal, your rehab program engages you in therapy and counseling of various types. You attend individual therapy, group therapy, and a 12-step program for several hours each day, and eat healthy, nutritious food catered at each meal to help make up for nutritional deficiencies you may suffer from.
At the end of the 30-day rehab period, a therapist determines if you need continued therapy on an outpatient basis, or sober living arrangements, as part of an aftercare plan.
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.
Sometimes, addictions are found to be too long-standing to resolve adequately in a 30-day period. While detoxification usually completes in about 10 days, the actual addiction, which is a mental disorder, requires far longer periods of treatment in the form of psychological counseling. In the event that the supervising therapists and other addiction professionals should determine that your addiction requires a gradual detoxification plan, and more therapy, you are asked to extend your stay, usually an additional month.
Individual therapy and group therapy, in 60-day rehab plans, delve deeper into the cognitive distortions that shape your difficulties resisting substance abuse. You may also get to participate in different choices of recreational therapy such as yoga and art therapy. These can provide a vent for your deepest feelings, and help you manage your recovery more effectively.
Long-term rehab programs are suitable when the addiction to treat has proven difficult to beat. When a patient has attempted rehab with shorter programs in the past, and relapsed, addiction professionals at the rehab may determine that a longer duration is called for. If programs of shorter duration haven’t allowed the patient to internalize the principles of sobriety well enough, a longer, 90-day program may be appropriate.
Long-term rehab programs also tend to be well-suited to addictions that are deep and complex. When multiple drugs, long-standing addictions, or co-occurring mental disorders such as depression or anxiety are involved, longer durations are able to allow the patient sufficient time to pay attention to every complicating factor and recover adequately. According to SAMHSA, the government organization, people who work their way through 90-day rehab programs are up to 43 percent more likely to lead normal lives in the year following treatment, compared to patients who take up shorter courses.
Staying away from temptation for 90 days, and learning better psychological health habits and skills in therapy, enable you to internalize the rules to managing personal relationships, conflict resolution, and personal discipline better, all of which are essential to long-term sobriety.
Certainly, longer-term programs tend to be more expensive than shorter-term programs. They come with much better odds of long-term sobriety, however.
At the end of each day, when you’ve put a good deal of hard work into getting better, you deserve to unwind and relax. Since this cannot involve the use of drugs or alcohol, you can have fun at some of Coral Springs’ many sober-friendly attractions.
The Sawgrass Nature Center, off Sawgrass Expressway, is a nonprofit that is dedicated to helping local wildlife. Local volunteers take in young, orphaned animals found in the region, and raise them till they are old enough to be independent. Visitors can view these animals, and learn about the best ways to help helpless animals of different kinds. Making contact with wildlife can be a wonderful way to relieve stress.
If you love the work of modern artists, the bright and cheerful displays at the Coral Springs Museum of Art offer you a great way to spend an enriching hour or two when you have the time. The museum displays a constantly changing array of work by local artists. Viewing great art can be an excellent way to feel better after a day of hard work at rehab.
There is another kind of wildlife that you can acquaint yourself within Coral Springs — you can go snorkeling or scuba diving in the beautiful, blue waters of the ocean, and get up close to some of the most beautiful sea life known to man. It can be a deeply enriching experience.
Legacy Healing Center offers effective, evidence-based inpatient rehab programs to help with substance abuse addictions of every description. If you struggle with a substance abuse problem or know someone who does, a call to an addiction professional at Legacy Healing Center can be life-changing.
