The Risks and Benefits of Going to a Behavioral Health... Read More
Do you find that you wake up in the morning and the first thing that you think about is when you can have your first drink? Have you noticed that your personal and professional relationships are suffering as a result of your drinking habits? If the answer is yes, it is time that you seriously consider coming to Legacy Healing Center in South Florida for alcoholism treatment.
During your time at Legacy, you will participate in different activities and various therapy forms that will help you recover physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
Before you can begin to put the framework together for a treatment plan, you must first remove any influence of alcohol from your body. The problem is that during active addiction, your body becomes used to drinking a certain amount of alcohol each day. When your body doesn’t consume the alcohol, physical withdrawal symptoms begin to manifest.
In most cases, withdrawal symptoms will begin to develop within hours of the time you took your last drink. Although symptoms vary depending on your addiction’s severity, withdrawal symptoms usually include an increase in anxiety, nausea, headaches, and general agitation. You may also experience seizures, high blood pressure, or hallucinations in more severe cases, so you must never try to detox without a trained medical professional’s assistance to ensure that you don’t suffer any serious harm.
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.
To overcome your addiction, you must develop an understanding of what led you down the road toward addiction in the first place. Did you experience a traumatic event during your life? Are you struggling with a mental illness that caused you to self-medicate through drinking? Through therapy and other activities, the Legacy team will help you to answer those questions.
Therapy is a critical part of your overall recovery. Participating in our group therapy, individual counseling, and behavioral therapy, when needed, will help you to start to understand what you need to do to maintain your sobriety. Group therapy will be a central point of your day because it allows you to interact with other clients who may have the same thoughts and feelings. Being an active voice in therapy helps you to make connections and begin to develop your system of support.
Individual therapy is a way to speak to a member of our team in a private setting. During these sessions, we will talk with you about how you feel as you progress throughout your treatment plan and any hesitations. Would you like to extend your treatment program? Let us know during one of these meetings, and we can ensure that it happens.
