If you have come to the point in your life where you are struggling with drug addiction and are ready to move toward sobriety, the first step you should do is turn to a team of experts that can help you overcome your addiction.
The Legacy Healing Center team in South Florida is committed to providing you with the care you need to help you work through your addiction’s various aspects.
Your time at Legacy will primarily focus on participating in different forms of therapy. Two of the main types of counseling that we offer at Legacy includes group therapy and one-on-one counseling. Individual counseling allows you to connect with a member of our team on a personal level. You can talk about traumatic events that you may not feel comfortable sharing a group setting, and you can also discuss how you think you are progressing in your program.
It’s important not to overlook the critical role that group therapy plays in your overall recovery. Group therapy allows you to connect with other clients who are in the midst of their recovery. By actively participating in this type of treatment, you will learn that other people may have the same thoughts and feelings as you regarding addiction and life in general. This form of therapy is an excellent way to begin to build the basis of people that you can turn to for support when you are having a hard day and visa versa. When you call in to speak to one of our intake specialists, they can provide you with more information regarding our therapy programs.
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.
Your experience at Legacy will rely on the type of program that you enroll in. For example, if you decide to go through our inpatient program, you will live at our campus for a set number of days. One of our intake specialists will let you know what you should bring when you come, but we will provide you with a comfortable bed, healthy meals, and an environment that will help you focus on your recovery.
We understand that inpatient treatment is not always a viable solution for every client, which is why we also offer different outpatient programs. You will work closely with a member of our team to develop a schedule of the days and times you will come to Legacy for treatment.
One of the leading reasons our clients feel so comfortable when they come to Legacy Healing Center is that we take a different recovery approach. When you walk through the doors of our facility, we want you to feel like family, so many of the amenities at Legacy will help you feel as though you are coming to a home away from home.
