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.
The reason for the rise in prescription drug addiction is twofold. First and foremost, prescription medication is readily available through street dealers. Nearly any time of day, you would be able to find a dealer that would be willing to sell you as much as you would like to buy.
In many cases, prescription addiction begins innocently due to an injury or some personal trauma. The issue arises when a patient is not closely monitored, and they remain on the medication for longer than they should. Once the addiction takes hold, a patient may try to obtain their drug of choice from other doctors or turn to illegal methods to ascertain a specific prescription.
There are different classes of medications that are widely abused. The most abused Rx medication typically falls into three categories: opioids, depressants, and stimulants. Although these medications may be initially prescribed to you by a doctor, it’s important to remember that these drugs are not meant to be used for an extended length of time. Any usage that continues past the prescribed time could result in a severe addiction reasonably quickly.
One of the leading risks associated with Rx addiction is that addiction can quickly turn deadly. For example, if you lose track of the number of pills you took in a given time, you run the risk of accidentally taking one pill too many, resulting in an overdose.
Like any other habit, an addiction to prescription medication could severely impact your relationship with your friends and family members. They will likely try to distance themselves from you simply because they do not want to see you in that type of condition. Once you are working your way through your treatment plan, our team will allow you to participate in family therapy. Utilizing this form of counseling can help you grow closer to your loved ones.
When you are consumed with your addiction, it is hard to notice the numerous sober friendly attractions in and around Long Island. Once you come home after treatment, a good rule of thumb is to set aside time to visit some of these fun places. You may come to find that you have an interest in an attraction or an activity you may not have realized when you were in active addiction. Whether you decide to take these trips by yourself or with a sober friendly, you are sure to learn more about yourself.
Here are a few suggestions of places to visit:
White Post Farm
If you are an animal lover, you can enjoy a visit to the White Post Farm. This family-run farm first opened in 1886 as a place for patrons to purchase freshly grown vegetables. Since that time, the venue has developed into a popular tourist attraction with the option of buying products or visiting some of the animals that call the farm their home. If you visit with kids, they will undoubtedly have fun riding on the train that circles the property or playing on the playground.
White Post Farm is located at 250 Old Country Road, Melville, New York 11747.
Heckscher Museum of Art
The Heckscher Museum of Art is a must-see attraction if you are an art enthusiast. This museum is filled with different European and American art pieces that range from the 19th to the 21st centuries. German-American immigrant and future philanthropist August Heckscher inspired this museum in 1920 by donating 185 pieces of his personal artwork collection to the museum’s collection. Today, nearly 3,000 pieces of art at the museum include works from painters such as Thomas Moran and George Inness. Don’t forget, the museum also hosts numerous educational programs and activities throughout the year.
You can visit Heckscher Museum of Art at 2 Prime Avenue, Huntington, New York 11743.
