LEGACY HEALING DETOX
An addiction to drugs or alcohol is something that can put a halt on your entire life. When you are in the active stage of addiction, it is nearly impossible to focus on any other aspects of your life. Things that were once important to you begin to fall by the wayside and your relationship with yourself, your family and even your spiritual connection seem to disappear.
The Legacy Healing Center team works hand-in-hand with you to develop a personalized course of treatment to help suit your overall recovery needs when you are ready to take back control of your life. We provide you with emotional, physical, and deeper psychological support so that you can change the course of your life and leave addiction in your past.
An important mantra that you should always keep throughout your time in treatment is a commitment to an open mind. The next few sections will provide you with a brief overview of what you can expect during your time in rehab and more about our luxury facility. When you feel comfortable, we encourage you to reach out to one of our intake specialists to learn more about the process of enrolling in one of our treatment programs. A member of our team will also gather more information from you so that we can learn exactly where you are in your addiction and what types of programs we should put together for you.
Do you wake up in the morning and the first thought in your head revolves around the next time you can consume your drug of choice? Has the progress you have made in your life come to a complete halt because of your addiction to drugs? If you have answered yes to even one of these questions, you should seriously consider taking part in the drug rehabilitation program at Legacy Healing Center.
One of the common questions that we receive from patients that are thinking about enrolling in one of our programs revolves around the benefits that he or she would receive from treatment. A major reason why rehab is so beneficial is that it provides you with the tools to stop the vicious cycle associated with addiction. Regardless of the program that you choose, our treatment plan helps to provide you with a set schedule to follow every day. It also removes the “downtime” you have that is often spent in active addiction.
Another wonderful benefit of coming to our treatment center is the fact that it gives you the chance to learn more about yourself. Many patients come to our behavioral health center with the idea that they are attending treatment just to overcome their addiction. While that is true, it’s critical that you also explore the reasons behind why you became addicted to your drug or drink of choice. By learning more about the root cause of your addiction, you can focus on what you can do to stop yourself from going back down that path.
The professionals at Legacy see the impact and ramifications of drug addiction on a daily basis. We understand that the story behind every addiction is different and we go to great length to develop a caring and guiding relationship with every one of our patients. Part of the way that we do this is by engaging in one on one therapy.
Individual therapy affords you the chance to speak to one of our counselors about anything that is bothering you. Do you have questions or concerns about your treatment? Do you want to talk about a trauma that took place that you don’t feel comfortable addressing in a group setting? Individual therapy is a perfect way of connecting with our team so that we can ensure that you continue to stay on the right path.
Although all addictions are difficult to combat, an addiction to alcohol is uniquely difficult due in large part to the fact that purchasing alcohol is completely legal. In most places throughout the country, most people can walk into a liquor store and buy their alcohol of choice as early as 9 AM. Do you prefer to go out for a drink? Most bars or restaurants start serving alcohol fairly early in the afternoon. The vendors at a liquor store, restaurant, or bar will never think twice about serving a paying customer because they may not realize that their customer has a problem with alcohol.
Sadly, there are many misconceptions associated with rehab facilities. Many patients mistakenly believe that rehabs are designed to look like lockdown units in a hospital ward. You will never find that at Legacy Healing Alcohol Rehab Center. Our facility is designed in such a way so that you will not feel shut in or claustrophobic. Our bright and open floor design gives you the freedom and flexibility to feel as though you are visiting a close friend’s house or you are living in a home away from home. We strive to make your time at our facility as comfortable and stress-free as possible so if there is something that we can do to accomplish that goal, please just let a member of our team know. We will do the best we can to accommodate you.
An important conversation that you should have with a member of our team before you start your Tallahassee drug rehab journey is whether or not you should first go through our detox program. It’s important to remember that your body has become accustomed to consuming your drug or alcoholic beverage of choice. When you stop ingesting these substances, there is a strong possibility that you will feel some physical side effects. These side effects are commonly referred to as withdrawal symptoms.
Withdrawal symptoms vary from patient to patient. Another factor in the severity of withdrawal symptoms revolves around the length of your addiction and the substance associated with your addiction. For example, most patients that suffer from an addiction to alcohol tend to begin to feel withdrawal symptoms within a few hours of their last drink. If you have an addiction to drugs, on the other hand, depending on the drug you may begin to feel withdrawal symptoms anywhere between a few hours or in a day or two from the time you used the drug.
It is never advisable that you try to detox without the assistance of a trained medical professional. The consequences of trying to detox without medical help could be disastrous if not potentially deadly. Withdrawal symptoms can include anything from nausea to shakiness to anxiety. In more serious cases, however, you may experience seizures or other life-threatening physical reactions. Our medical detox program includes 24-hour clinical monitoring, allowing you to safely detoxify your body. We can also use medications to help ease the discomfort associated with withdrawal.
Once you have gone through the detox process, you can then turn your attention to your rehabilitation treatment. The treatment that you will receive at our facility mainly focuses on taking part in the most well researched, effective forms of therapy.
The main type of therapy that you will experience during your stay at Legacy Healing Center is group therapy. Group therapy sessions will typically follow the model set down in traditional 12 step meetings. Through discussion that is guided by one of our counselors, you will have the chance to share your personal experiences regarding addiction and recovery. You will also have the opportunity to listen to the thoughts and opinions of other people in your group.
Unfortunately, addiction tends to affect not only you but those around you that love and care about you. Whether it is a family member or a close friend, the pain associated with addiction always seems to reverberate to the people that you love the most. If you feel as though addiction has hindered your relationship with your family, our team can help you put those pieces back together. We offer a mixture of family therapy and educational events that help to shed light on the stigma of addiction. Our family therapy sessions allow you to speak openly and honestly with your family in a neutral setting. Although the first few sessions may feel uncomfortable, talking about your addiction and the things that you are learning can help you and your family come to a better understanding of the disease. Your family can check on you any time while you are at Legacy Healing Center. Once your therapy meeting is done, encourage them to call any time (888)534-2295.
One of the best features of our drug and alcohol treatment facility is the fact that our experienced team realizes that every person needs individualized attention and a unique treatment plan. We realize that we need to make every patient comfortable which is why we offer various options for the length of treatment. Our treatment programs range in duration from as few as 30 days up to 90 days.
There are numerous advantages to each type of program. A 30-day program is well suited for a person who knows that they have a problem with drugs or alcohol and want to take the first steps toward a sober life. Some patients find the commitment to a long-term program daunting when they are just starting out on their journey toward sobriety. A 30-day program may feel more manageable. We always offer the patient the option to extend their stay to a longer treatment program at any time. Simply reach out to a member of our team and he or she will put you in contact with a counselor that can help you.
A 60-day treatment plan is a “middle of the road” plan. This course of treatment looks to build on the important information and tools you learned during your initial 30 days and parlay that into bigger steps that you can take to aid in your sobriety. You will still experience the same forms of therapy and have the same interactions that you had during the first 30 days, however, you have a better opportunity to look into the reasons behind your addiction and what you can do to fine-tune your approach toward a sober life.
Our 90-day rehab program is an ideal option for a patient that has struggled with long-term addiction. When you have lived an extended stretch of your life with an addiction, it is important that you take as much time as you need to recover. We would be remiss if we did not mention that long-term addiction is not a criterion for enrolling in a 90-day program. Regardless of the severity of your addiction, you can always take part in a 90-day program.
Another critical decision that you will need to make is associated with whether you would like to complete an inpatient program or an outpatient program. The leading difference between these two options is that when you take part in our inpatient program you remain on our campus for the duration of your treatment. You will eat, sleep, and interact with staff and other rehab attendees around the clock. We provide you with healthy meals, a comfortable place to sleep, and a beautiful setting in which to spend your days.
If you opt to enroll in our inpatient program, we always recommend that you be conscious of the things that you plan to bring with you. You should always pack the essential items including personal care products such as deodorant, shampoo, and toothpaste, however, any products that contain alcohol in them are strictly forbidden. We suggest that you pack enough clothes to last you between seven and ten days and utilize our laundry facilities whenever needed. Feel free to also bring books or magazines that can help to keep you inspired during your stay. If you have prescription medications that you need to bring with you, please let us know before you arrive and be sure to transport them in their original containers.
Your recovery journey is not finished once you complete your initial treatment at our facility. Sobriety is a life long journey. In an effort to give you every chance to succeed at sobriety, we developed a program called Addiction Aftercare. Addiction Aftercare gives you the chance to reach out to our team even after your initial program is complete. Do you need help finding a meeting? Would you like to continue on in therapy? Do you want to connect with other Legacy Healing Center alumni? Addiction Aftercare is the perfect way to accomplish those goals.
The team at Legacy Healing Center is here to help you break the chaotic cycle of addiction. Regardless of whether you need assistance in drug or alcohol recovery, our professionals are here to provide you with the expert care and guidance you need to weather the storm of addiction. A leading concern among many people that reach out to us regards the cost of our programs. We are proud to work with various types of insurance companies to ensure that you receive the care that you need. When you first speak to one of our intake specialists, be sure to mention whether or not you have insurance. We can help you look into the steps that you would need to take to have your stay with us covered.
Part of the process will likely be reaching out to the insurance company to determine what is covered. If you feel more comfortable completing this part of the process on your own, we highly recommend that you ask the company certain questions. One of the key things you will want to find out is whether or not there is any part of your treatment that is not covered by insurance. For example, some insurance companies offer plans that only cover outpatient rehab.
Another factor to consider is whether or not you have recently gone through a stay at another rehab facility. Although rehab treatment may be covered, the insurance company may have a restriction on how many times you can tap into that type of coverage in a certain period of time.
Our team is always willing to work with you through any insurance limitations. We pride ourselves on putting the focus on your treatment and work tirelessly to help you through any red tape.
It’s essential to keep in mind that once you complete treatment, you should dedicate time to finding different sober friendly attractions in and around Tallahassee. We strongly recommend that you find activities that help keep both your body and mind active. Here are some of our top suggestions. If you have visited some of these places before, you may want to try to visit them again with new, sober eyes. Keep in mind, if you ever need insight on certain venues around the Tallahassee area, our team is happy to assist.
Lichgate on High Road
Finding things to do outdoors is an excellent way to reflect and it can be a wonderful way to workout. A beautiful venue to visit is the Dream At Lichgate On High Road Park. This unique park is made up of a variety of trails and paths that remind visitors of a fairytale oasis. You are sure to enjoy the wooded areas that are filled with picnic tables.
The Challenger Learning Center of Tallahassee
The Challenger Learning Center is an incredible educational venue that is suitable for your entire family. This location features an IMAX theater that shows a variety of fun and interesting movies on numerous subjects. One of the best parts of the Challenger Learning Center is the Space Station Simulator. The simulator is open to the public one Saturday per month (typically the second Saturday). In the simulator, you can learn what an astronaut experiences when they go out on a mission. Registration is required so be sure to call ahead to lock in your reservation.
Goodwood Museum & Gardens
Goodwood Museum & Gardens is another example of a lovely outdoor attraction that is frequented by visitors throughout the year. This site is home to a plantation that dates back to the 1830s. The gardens span 16 acres of meticulously kept property that includes Japanese maples and an assortment of other distinct trees. When you step into the planation, the furnished rooms will make you feel as though you took a step back in time.
It’s expected that you will have certain days where you will just want to let loose and have fun. On those occasions, you may want to consider visiting the Fun Station. The Fun Station is an all-inclusive indoor and outdoor entertainment center that features over 70 arcade games. You should plan on going on a nice day so that you do not miss out on the fantastic outdoor attraction including mini-golf, go-karting, and batting cages. Remember to stop by the pizza kitchen for a delicious slice of pizza to refuel.
Flippin’ Great Pinball
Do you like playing pinball? If so, you should make time to stop by Flippin’ Great Pinball.
