ABOUT LEGACY HEALING CENTER
Offering a Florida rehab model of residential care, as well as a full continuum of outpatient programs for adult men and women, Legacy Healing Center of Margate, Fla. provides a partial hospitalization program (PHP) with community housing, an intensive outpatient program (IOP), and standard outpatient services for adults struggling with chemical dependency and co-occurring mental health disorders.
If necessary, the South Florida treatment center also offers medical detoxification through its Pompano location, placing Legacy Healing Center among the 10.9% of non-hospital facilities in the state to offer detox.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Upon admission, clients participate in a comprehensive assessment to help clinicians form a personalized treatment plan and determine an appropriate level of care. Clients who require detoxification, which may last between seven and 10 days at the Pompano location, receive medications, close monitoring, and nutritional support to ensure the safety and comfort of clientele.
Legacy Healing Center's programming combines a range of evidence-based treatment approaches, holistic therapies, and 12-step participation. Utilizing evidence-based treatment modalities, such as dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), the center facilitates psychodynamic groups, individual therapy sessions, process therapies, and groups dedicated to family systems. In addition, the facility provides educational services and therapy sessions for loved ones.
In addition to traditional treatment models, Legacy Healing Center also incorporates a range of holistic approaches to address nutrition, spirituality, trauma, and fitness. Clients may be led through mindful meditation sessions, participate in creative art projects, and go on regular outings within the community. Once a client completes PHP, clients may be encouraged to utilize the facility's IOP or standard outpatient to serve as an aftercare service.
IOP involves at least nine hours of weekly programming, in which clients participate in group and individual therapy, 12-step meetings, sober social activities, and relationship-building activities. Clients in IOP do have the option to continue residing in community housing.
