When you are combatting an active addiction to drugs, it is often difficult to imagine a life other than the one you’re currently living. Addiction involves a vicious cycle that is hard to break without help. The first step on the road to recovery is to reach out to the professionals at the Legacy Healing Center.
One of the first things to consider before starting treatment in one of our Behavioral Health Centers is whether you should first go through our detox program. Attending our medical detox is the ideal way to ensure that your overall health is not put in jeopardy when you stop taking your drug of choice. It’s important to remember that you will likely experience a range of withdrawal symptoms including but not limited to nausea, shakiness, and anxiety. If you have been battling a long-term addiction, you may experience more severe, even potentially deadly, withdrawal symptoms. It is never advisable that you attempt to detox without the assistance of an experienced professional. When you come to our detox facility, you can rest assured that our medical professionals will monitor you around the clock, helping you stay safe and comfortable.
After detoxing your body, you will be much more clear-headed and ready to delve into multiple forms of therapy to help you recover from the underlying causes of substance abuse. Therapy is an essential part of your overall recovery. Group therapy, including 12-step meetings, help you to learn more about yourself by relating to the experiences of others. Engaging in this type of therapy is also an excellent way to help you build your own support system by interacting with other patients.
It is understandable that there may be past traumas or other parts of your life that you don’t wish to talk about in a group setting. For deeper, more personal work you will participate in one on one therapy. Individual therapy gives you the chance to talk about these experiences with one of our highly skilled counselors. Talking with counselors also gives you the opportunity to check in with how you feel and know how long does rehab lasts.
Many patients come to us with concerns about the cost of treatment. Our team goes above and beyond to ensure that our services are available to everyone regardless of their financial situation. If you do not have private insurance and you are worried about the costs associated with your treatment, be sure to speak to one of our intake specialists. We will do everything we can to ensure that the cost of getting the right treatment does not interfere with your overall recovery.
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!
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.
Legacy Healing Center accepts and works with a number of different insurance providers which can help to offset the costs associated with residential rehab. When you speak to one of our intake specialists, let him or her know that you have private insurance so that we can begin to assist you in verifying that your insurance will cover some or all of the cost of your stay.
At Legacy Healing Center, we offer both inpatient and outpatient treatment plans. When you opt to enroll in our inpatient program, also known as our Partial Hospitalization Program or PHP, you will spend six days and nights per week on our campus. This highly-structured program is designed to help you learn healthy routines and keeps you focused on your recovery. Throughout the day you will take part in therapy and meetings and spend time getting to know your peers.
We also offer an intensive outpatient program, also known as IOP, as well as our general outpatient program. Our intensive outpatient program involves a minimum of nine hours of clinical treatment per week. You will work with one of our counselors to develop a schedule and a flexible treatment program that suits your needs. This is particularly helpful for patients that have other responsibilities such as school or work.
Our outpatient program is best suited for patients who need help but still need to meet full-time work or school commitments. Outpatient participants have access to various types of therapy including 12-step meetings and a one-hour weekly therapeutic session. We can create a schedule for you to work through this program either during the day or at night.
To help you remain focused on your recovery once you’ve finished your treatment with Legacy, it is important to seek out new ways to have fun that don’t include drugs and alcohol. Give yourself the opportunity to explore and visit different sober friendly attractions in and around Tallahassee and see what you enjoy. You may be surprised to find a location that you hadn’t thought about visiting before you became sober. Here are a few suggestions:
The Alfred B. Maclay Gardens State Park
Exploring the great outdoors is an ideal way to clear your mind if you are having a difficult day. Alfred B. Maclay Gardens Park is a beautiful 1,176-acre property that includes an impressive botanical garden. The park opens as early as 8 AM and usually does not close until sunset.
Flippin’ Great Pinball
If you’re looking for a fun and interactive form of family entertainment, you may want to consider a visit to Flippin’ Great. This dynamic arcade is located in Downtown Tallahassee and stays open as late as 10 PM on weeknights and midnight on the weekends. This venue features a variety of themed pinball machines from popular movies including Ghostbusters, Nightmare on Elm Street, and Star Wars. If you want to explore other parts of Downtown Tallahassee, you can purchase an all-day pass and come and go throughout the day.
The Legacy Healing Center team is available around the clock for any person who is ready to recover from their addiction. We encourage you to reach out to us today at (888) 534-2295. We look forward to helping you.
