LEGACY HEALING DETOX
Are you struggling with an addiction to alcohol and drugs? Do you feel as though your addiction has taken over every aspect of your life? If the answer is yes, it’s essential to remember that it is never too late to take steps away from alcohol and drugs and toward a healthier and more fulfilling life.
The professionals at Legacy Healing Center understand the chaos and turmoil associated with addiction. We strive to show each person that walks through our doors that there is a better way of living that does not involve drugs and alcohol. Our holistic treatment plan gives you the tools you need to completely change your outlook on life.
When you are considering a treatment program, it is critical that you keep an open mind throughout the process. You can rest assured that from the moment you call and speak to our intake specialist, our team will work with you regarding your recovery through every step of the journey. However, it is up to you to accept and understand the information and new life lessons that we are teaching you. When you begin treatment with an open mind and an open heart, you are more likely to achieve long term sobriety.
An addiction to drugs, whether illegal street drugs or prescription medication, can bring your life to a grinding halt. It is highly probable that the people close to you will notice a change in your behavior, it’s nearly impossible to keep an addiction hidden for very long. You will likely begin to notice that your personal and professional life will become difficult to manage as a result of your addiction.
When your friends and family begin to question your habits and your work begins to suffer, you may feel as though you need to do more to hide your addiction. This usually involves putting a wall up between yourself and every person that you feel is questioning you. This alienation often turns into loneliness which can spiral into further drug use.
It’s critical that you choose a drug rehab facility that can support you with the encouragement you need to make the important changes that you need in your life. During your stay at our facility, we work to provide you with all of the healthy amenities that you may find at home, and more. If you opt to enroll in our inpatient program, you will eat and sleep at our campus. We employ on-site chefs who create delicious and nutritious meals on a daily basis. Our team believes that a healthy and balanced diet plays a critical part in your overall recovery. When your body is well-nourished, you can focus more clearly on your recovery.
Combatting alcohol addiction is extremely difficult for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, it is perfectly legal to purchase alcohol at almost any time of day. The majority of liquor stores open at 9 AM and don’t close until late at night.
Additionally, you can go to nearly any restaurant in your area and order any drink of your choosing. Regardless of whether you buy alcohol at a liquor store or from a local bar, the person selling you your drink will probably never ask you whether or not you have an addiction or inquire as to whether you should be drinking.
Unfortunately, many people considering a stay at an alcohol treatment facility are nervous based on what that they have seen in the movies. The reality, however, is quite different. Our team has taken the time to design an environment where you will feel relaxed and at ease during the course of your treatment.
One of the biggest decisions that you will need to make before you begin treatment is which program best suits your needs. A basic premise of our treatment center is that we are here to help you break the cycle of addiction. However, we collaborate with you to determine the best way to accomplish this goal.
We always recommend that you consider enrolling in our inpatient treatment program, also known as our Partial Hospitalization Program or PHP. During the course of your program you will live at our facility. Our team will provide you with a comfortable bed and room as well as nutritious meals throughout the day. You will take part in different therapy programs and activities that help to reinforce your new, sober life.
If you have responsibilities associated with work, school, or your family, but you still recognize that you need help with your addiction? Our outpatient program would be an ideal choice for you. If you have the flexibility to spend the day at our facility but do not have the ability to stay full time, our intensive outpatient program, also known as IOP may be a good alternative.
Keep in mind that there are numerous advantages to attending a treatment program other than simply becoming sober. For example, during the course of your program you will be able to take time to learn more about the events in your life that lead you to turn to your drug or drink of choice. It is not uncommon for a specific trauma to occur in your life that you were unable to process. Whether this is a childhood event or something that you experienced in your adult life, experiences such as an accident or abuse could play a serious impact on the decisions that led to your addiction.
This self-revelation is achieved by taking part in a variety of forms of therapy. One of the main forms of therapy that you will experience during your time at our facility is group therapy. Our group therapy sessions are modeled after a traditional 12-step meeting. This form of therapy allows you to interact with other patients in a way where you can share your thoughts, feelings, and experiences associated with your addiction. Additionally, you have the opportunity to listen to the stories of fellow rehab attendees. Group meetings give you the foundation of building your own support system. As long as you leave yourself open to truly hearing the experiences of those around you, you may be able to make lifelong friendships.
It’s essential not to forget that addiction tends to affect not only the person with the addiction but with close friends and family as well. With this understanding in mind, we developed an option for our patients and their families to take part in family therapy sessions. These sessions take place in a neutral environment so that both the patient and family members can feel comfortable sharing their thoughts, feeling, and emotions about the impact that addiction has had on their family. This therapy is extremely helpful in putting the pieces of your family back together.
An understandable concern among prospective patients is the cost associated with rehab. We believe that treatment should be available to any person that wants to work toward becoming sober and living a healthier life which is why we do everything that we can to make our rehab services available to you. If you have private insurance, there is a strong likelihood that your insurance may cover all or part of your stay.
If you do not have private insurance, we collaborate with you to work out a payment plan that suits your needs. Remember, going to rehab is not only an investment in your current physical and mental health, but it is also an investment in a brighter future.
The prospect of trying to eliminate any physical trace of drugs from your body is understandably a scary one. Thankfully, when you trust the team at Legacy Healing Center it is something that you do not need to worry about. Our staff takes every precaution with you if you need to go through our detox program before you start your rehab program.
The severity of the symptoms that you feel is typically dependent on the severity of your addiction as well as your drug of choice. For example, many patients that are trying to overcome an addiction to opioids will usually experience chills as well as a loss of appetite, diarrhea, and nausea. Remember that opioids include codeine, heroin, and oxycodone.
One of the dangers of attempting to go through the withdrawal process on your own is that there is always a possibility that withdrawal symptoms could be fatal. Your body needs time to recover from the ravage that drugs have done to your body. When you enroll in our detox program, our team ensures that you receive the attention and the treatment that you need to navigate through this pivotal time in your life.
When your body has become accustomed to frequently consuming alcohol, it is impossible to simply stop without feeling some sort of physical (and many times emotional) consequences. Depending on the severity of your addiction, you will likely begin to feel withdrawal symptoms within hours of the last time you took a drink. The type of symptoms that you will experience varies but common examples are similar to those a patient that goes through when withdrawing from drugs. You may become sick to your stomach, sweat, shake, and feel incredibly sick.
There are times, however, when detoxing from alcohol can become dangerous. A possible withdrawal effect is experiencing a seizure which could ultimately lead to death. It is never advisable that you attempt to withdraw from alcohol without the help of a trained medical professional.
Although most patients that go through alcohol rehab find that they are starting to feel better within a few days, it is only after you remove the influence from alcohol from your body that you can truly commit yourself to the recovery process.
We pride ourselves on working hand in hand with every patient to create a treatment program that accomplishes their recovery goals and does not infringe upon their necessary responsibilities. Our recovery programs range in length between 30 and 90-days. There are advantages to the lengths of each treatment plan.
A 30-day program allows you to take the important step of breaking the vicious cycle of addiction. It is a perfect choice for a patient who realizes that they have a problem but may feel uncomfortable enrolling in a long-term program. You will still have full access to our broad spectrum of therapy options as well as career counseling, our personal trainer, transition assistance, and mentoring. If you complete your 30-day program and you would like to continue with treatment, we are always happy to help make that happen.
Our 60-day program is an extension of our initial 30-day program. During a 60-day treatment plan, you will still experience the same forms of therapy and care that you did in the first 30-days, however, a 60-day program allows you more time to develop sober habits and routines.
Our 90-day program is well-suited for patients that have struggled with long-term addiction. While any person can enroll in this program, our 90-day treatment plan removes a person suffering from addiction from a potentially toxic environment for an extended period of time.
Our team is constantly working closely with you to confirm that you do not have any questions or concerns regarding your treatment plan. We always provide the flexibility to change your course of treatment in case you would like to extend your time with us or you would like to take part in different forms of therapy.
When you are preparing for your stay at our treatment center, we always recommend that you take great care in packing the items that you plan to bring with you. For example, we have a laundry facility so we recommend that you bring enough clothes to last you between seven and ten days. We encourage you to bring any reading materials that may inspire you while you are going through treatment. Books, magazines, or pamphlets associated with recovery are always permittable.
Due in large part to the recognition that addiction is a growing problem throughout the country, private insurance companies have become more open to paying for some aspects of drug and alcohol rehabilitation. Legacy Healing Center is proud to work with and accept a variety of private insurance carriers.
If you have private insurance, we recommend that you let us know when you call during your initial intake. If you need assistance in determining whether your insurance will cover your stay at our facility, we are happy to help. If you prefer to find out this information on your own, it is critical to determine whether or not your insurance will cover detox, inpatient, and outpatient programs as well as the length of time covered.
This is critical because different insurance companies have their own mandates when it comes to treatment coverage. For example, if you recently attended another rehab facility, you may have limits to how much they will still cover within the year.
One of the leading reasons why a patient enrolls in our drug or alcohol treatment program is because they see that they need a serious change in their daily routine. Once you return home, it’s essential that you develop positive habits that include sober-friendly things to do and places to go in and around the Deerfield Beach area.
One of the most popular places to visit in the Deerfield Beach area is Butterfly World. Butterfly World is home to the largest display of butterflies in the world and it was one of the first butterfly parks in the Western Hemisphere. It is located just a few minutes outside of Deerfield Beach in Coconut Creek. When you visit this park you can expect to see over nearly 20,000 live butterflies fluttering around the facility houses. The park is open from Monday through Saturday between 9 AM and 5 PM and Sundays from 11 AM to 5 PM.
Deerfield Island Park
If you are looking for a fun outdoor weekend adventure, you may want to consider visiting Deerfield Island Park. Visitors have a unique way of accessing the park which is via boat. The boat shuttles only operate hourly between 10 AM and 3 PM on Saturdays and Sundays. Deerfield Island Park is filled with picturesque nature trails as well as picnic tables, grills and hammocks. The park is also available for private boaters on the weekends between 9:30 AM and 4:30 PM. Boating is weather dependent so it is advisable to call ahead to verify that boats are operational if the weather looks questionable.
The Beach is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the area. If you enjoy smelling the warm ocean breeze and experiencing the sand between your toes, it is certainly a venue that you should make time to visit. You may find it incredibly relaxing to sit on the beach and take pride in your recovery achievement early in the morning as the sun comes up or at the end of the day as it begins to set. There are also plenty of delicious restaurants nearby if you happen to get hungry.
Gumbo Limbo Nature Center
Do you enjoy the natural beauty associated with nature around the south Florida area? Be sure to visit the Gumbo Limbo Nature Center. The Nature Center is filled with incredible marine life and is home to the Sea Turtle Rehabilitation Facility. There are a multitude of indoor wildlife displays as well as an entire section of the Nature Center that is dedicated to an incredible butterfly display. The Gumbo Nature Center is open seven days a week. From Monday through Saturday, the Nature Center is open between 9 AM and 4 PM while on Sunday it does not open until 12 PM.
Sugar Sand Park
If you are looking for a fun family adventure, Sugar Sand Park is an ideal venue. This park won the “Best of the Best Parks” award in 2007 due to its incredible playground, splash ponds and carousel. Sugar Sand Park opens as early as 8 AM seven days a week.
