You may come to find that you would much rather choose to have a drink at home and not go out with friends because you are embarrassed by how much you will want to drink.

If you opt to enroll in a treatment program at the Legacy Healing Center, a focal point of your day will revolve around taking part in different 12-step meetings. The premise of the 12 steps applies to people that struggle with either alcohol or drugs. While every step plays an important role in your recovery, the first step is unquestionably one of the most critical.
The first step entails open admittance that you are not only powerless over alcohol but that your life has also become unmanageable. This is an essential factor in your overall recovery. Many people that struggle with addiction and even many family members and friends are often under the mistaken opinion that if you “just stop drinking” that the addiction will go away. The reality, however, is that you need to surrender yourself to the fact that your addiction is not something that you can control without the help of other people that have been in a similar situation and with assistance from your higher power.
When you are looking at possible meeting locations, it’s important that you keep an eye out for the details of the meeting. Meetings will typically be categorized as being “open” or “private”. An open meeting means that any person can attend the meeting. He or she does not need to be a person that has combatted with addition. For instance, if there is a friend or family member who is interested in learning more about addiction for school or just for their own personal frame of reference, he or she would be able to attend an open meeting without question.
A closed meeting, on the other hand, is more restricted. Attendees of closed AA or NA meetings are specifically for AA or NA members only and would like to stop drinking. These types of meetings were created to help the person struggling with addiction to feel more comfortable. It’s understandable that there are certain people in recovery that may not feel at ease talking about their addiction challenges in a room where the other attendees are not also personally struggling with addiction.
One of the fantastic things about narcotic anonymous meetings is the fact that any person can find a meeting almost any time of day any day of the week. If you are struggling to find a meeting, here are some meetings in and around the Delray Beach area.

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.
