Chief Executive Director
Mr. Benfaida is a Florida Board Certified Recovery Support Specialist serving as the Chief Executive Director at Legacy Healing Center. Travis graduated from FIU in 2018, receiving his bachelor’s degree from the College of Public Health. His passion and desire to fight the disease of addiction originated in 2012 when he was introduced to recovery through the South Florida treatment model after a five-year opioid addiction, stemming from a torn anterior cruciate ligament injury sustained while playing college basketball at The University of Central Florida. Through the grace of God, Alcoholics Anonymous, his personal determination, perseverance, and work ethic, Travis will be celebrating eleven years sober in April of 2023. Having transformed his life from a state of darkness and depression into one full of gratitude and enthusiasm for any, and all opportunities, Travis’ experience, compassion, and leadership allow him to create a thriving work environment for himself, staff, clients, and their families.
