A critical part of your overall recovery is finding things to do during your downtime that do not lead you down a path of temptation. While we always recommend that you take the time on a consistent, if not daily, basis to go to meetings, you should also find sober friendly things to do around Delray Beach that will not make you feel as though you are jeopardizing your recovery work.
When you have spent any part of your life with an addiction to alcohol, it’s easy to forget that there are numerous things that you can do that do not involve consuming alcohol. It’s perfectly legal to buy alcohol at almost any point in the day. You can wake up and head off to a liquor store as early as 9 AM in many cases and in the blink of an eye, your day has been spent drinking.
When you are ready to leave the influence of alcohol in your past, there are plenty of things that you can do with your day that don’t involve alcohol. During active addiction, it is no surprise that your relationship with your family may suffer. Therefore, one of the things that you may want to consider would be to organize a family-friendly activity. Reach out to different family members and get their insight as to how they would like to spend their day. From there, you can start to put together a plan to spend the day with them that will help you reconnect.
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.
