Legacy Healing Center is a premiere behavioral health provider that specializes in the treatment of substance abuse and addiction. Legacy focuses on an individualized client-centered approach including faith-based therapies that provide a safe and stable environment for those seeking help. Legacy works with individuals and families within their expansive support network to help those struggling to reach their goal of long term sobriety.
Legacy’s main mission is to set the foundation for any person who enters their community, allowing each client to heal, find guidance, and overcome underlying issues. By working with Legacy Healing Center, you are providing yourself the opportunity to be set free and re-join society free of toxic substances and behaviors and find the journey to a more fulfilling, faith-centered life.
Some individuals find that finding spirituality can be an integral part of the journey to recovery from drugs and alcohol addiction. Fort Myers Legacy Healing Center has locations all over South Florida and offers programs to Christians not only from Florida but all over the United States. Our healing programs offer spiritual guidance to be a leading factor in the support structure for treatment.
For most people talking about addiction treatment can be a scary topic to address. If you or someone you love is struggling with an addiction and are considering treatment we want you to know that it is normal to feel fearful about what treatment will be liked. We hope that our programs at Legacy can help those with strong religious faith find comfort in your programs. Many of our program participants give credit to their spirituality as the main tool for not only feeling safe but also a sense of security in the rehabilitation process.
Legacy’s Christ-centered programs give patients the benefit of combining their spiritual beliefs with clinical therapies that help heal both the mind and the body. We understand that recovering from addiction alone is scary and challenging. Because of this, we make sure to involve your family in therapy whenever possible so that they can support you along with our excellent team of medical professionals.
Our programs at Legacy not only successfully treat substance abuse addictions but also allow patients to strengthen their relationships with God. This provides the platform for strong spiritual foundations in the road to recovery.
When individuals make the life-changing decision to enter one of our faith-based rehab programs we ensure to provide a fully integrated curriculum on all levels. This means that patients will be able to work on their spirituality during any step in any part of our programs. We believe that by healing the individual as a whole and incorporating faith-based therapy and traditional programs we can allow patients to recover in the way that is best for them.
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!
Words cannot describe my experience with Legacy, but I will try. This place has, and continues to change my life. From the start at detox, the staff was very welcoming and caring while I was in a very dark place physically and emotionally. This treatment continued at the PHP and IOP levels. I have been to 5 other treatments facilities, but have never experienced the care and compassion I received at Legacy. Of course the staff is caring, but they are GENUINELY invested in their clients recovery.
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.
At Legacy, we believe that the bible can be a guide and of support throughout times of suffering. We have selected the following passages that can help inspire those in need to understand why getting help is important.
We rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. Romans 5:3-5
The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:4
So, we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18
If you or someone you love is suffering from a substance abuse addiction and feel like you do not know what to do, allow Legacy Healing Center to help you and your loved ones begin the journey of health and spiritual healing.
