  • 12-Step

    The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
  • Client & Family Support Groups

    Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.

Legacy Healing Center of Pompano, Fla. provides gender-specific, inpatient detoxification services for adults struggling with chemical dependency and co-occurring mental health disorders, placing the treatment center near Fort Lauderdale among the 10.9% of non-hospital facilities in the state to offer detox services.


According to the Pompano treatment facility's website, the length of detoxification depends largely on the substances used, the length and severity of addiction, age, and physical fitness of each client. However, clients typically reside at the Pompano facility to undergo detoxification from seven to 10 days. To ensure the safety and comfort of each client, individuals are closely medical monitored and may receive medications to minimize the discomfort of withdrawal. Nutritional support is also provided. In addition, clients may participate in chiropractic and massage sessions to reduce stress.

Unique to Legacy Healing Center, many aspects of the facility's detoxification measures are provided in a gender-specific setting to cater to the specific needs of men and women common in early recovery.
