Best Golf Courses in Orlando

One of the great benefits of being in recovery is you can begin to learn more about yourself than when you were amid addiction. This time usually entails opening yourself up to new adventures or experiences you may not have considered previously. When you come to Legacy Healing Center in South Florida for treatment, we will always encourage you to become more physically active in your everyday life. For some people, this may entail running or lifting weights. However, other people may be interested in trying a new sport like golf.

If you fall into this category, you may pick up that friends or family members may be interested in playing the sport with you. Going out for a round of golf is an excellent way to reconnect with those people and begin to focus on rebuilding those relationships that may have suffered during your time struggling with addiction.
