- Licensed Substance Abuse Counselors
Substance Abuse TreatmentFor many of our clients, substance abuse and addictive behavior, beyond blocking their journeys to responsible adulthood, has completely taken over their lives. Other clients who don’t have serious substance abuse issues may struggle with some type of addiction or addictive behavior that is impeding their progress. These addictive behaviors may involve such things as video games, internet, sex, pornography, gambling, or even food. Legacy’s trained and experienced professionals work with each client and family to understand the level of the addiction, to identify the addictive behaviors and thought patterns, to develop a plan to address these issues, and to commit to a path of healthy recovery. Through proven methods of treatment, including the 12 steps, Motivational Interviewing and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, clients learn the skills and gain the confidence and desire to embrace recovery.
Recovery PlanningLegacy helps each client develop a comprehensive relapse prevention plan based on the model developed by Terrence Gorski. Legacy team members are trained in the Gorski model, and utilize it in guiding clients to develop their own relapse prevention plan. Each client’s relapse prevention plan becomes an integral part of his Life Success Plan and is a crucial part of the overall aftercare planning process.
