If you have combatted any type of addiction, you know full well the impact that your addiction has on your relationships with any person in your life. More often than not, the relationships that are impacted the most by addiction are the ones with your family. When your family members know that you are struggling with addiction, they are put in the uncomfortable position of caring about you and loving you but not wanting to be around you when you are under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
As you are working toward recovery, it is understandable that you will want to rebuild relationships that may have been damaged as a result of your addiction. If you enroll in any one of the treatment programs at the Legacy Healing Center, you and your family will have the opportunity to take part in family therapy. This form of therapy provides you and your family with the chance to have open and honest communication about your addiction. Our counselors can also supply you with the tools and the guidance that you need to redevelop your relationship.
Once you are done with treatment, it’s important that you dedicate time to being with your family. A fun bonding experience could be to sit down with your family and plot out a fun adventure to visit various locations in the Tampa area that every family member can enjoy.
There is no shortage of family-friendly things that you can do in and around the Tampa area. Whether you live in Tampa and you are looking for day trips or you are planning a full-fledged vacation to Tampa, here are a few suggestions of places that you should make time to visit.
Zoo Tampa at Lowry Park
Spending the day at the zoo is always a fun adventure for every member of your family. Zoo Tampa at Lowry Park features over 1300 different animals. You can take advantage of feeding a giraffe, petting a stingray, or feeling the hard and bumpy shell of a giant tortoise. The zoo is open seven days per week all year round. On Sunday, the zoo is open between 9 AM to 5 PM and 9:30 AM to 5 PM Monday through Saturday.
Without question, Busch Gardens is one of the most popular attractions in Tampa Pay. You can easily spend the entire day getting lost in all of the attractions that this theme park has to offer. If riding on different roller coasters isn’t a thrill to you, be sure to check out the live entertainment shows and live animals that fill various sections of the park.
Glazer Children’s Museum
Are you traveling with young children? If so, you should set aside time to visit the Glazer Children’s Museum. From the moment that you step foot into this museum, your little one is sure to be entranced by the hands-on activities throughout the building. Over and above the awesome attractions, the other fantastic thing about this museum is the fact that it is open seven days a week. Although the hours are limited to between 1 PM and 6 PM on Sundays, during the rest of the week the museum is open between 10 AM and 5 PM.
George M. Steinbrenner Field
If you are a baseball fan and find yourself making plans during baseball season, you should check out the baseball schedule at George M. Steinbrenner Field.

With ticket prices starting as low as $5.00, visiting the stadium is a budget-friendly excursion.
While Tampa is beautiful, it can definitely get hot during the day. If you are looking for a way to beat the heat, Adventure Island is the perfect place to accomplish that goal.

Younger children are sure to enjoy the water playground while adults can cool off in any one of the wave pools.

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.
