Opioid Rehab for Manhattan Residents

Opioid Epidemic

The opioid epidemic took off in the United States in the late 1990s. The epidemic developed due to pharmaceutical companies providing assurances to the medical community that prescription painkillers that contained opioids did not have any addictive qualities. The result of this misinformation was the death of thousands of people and an epidemic that still has lingering effects on our country today.

History of Opioid Addiction

You may be surprised to learn that opioids have been readily available in the United States since the 1700s. In fact, it was once perfectly legal to use opioids in a recreational sense. Over time, it became clear that opioids had addictive features, resulting in the United States government cracking down on the recreational use of the drugs and causing doctors to second guess prescribing the medication. Today, opioids are still prescribed to patients. However, it is done so under strict standards.

How to Detox From Opioids

You should never try to undergo the process of detoxing from opioids unless you are under the care of a trained professional. Typically, within the first few hours of the last time you consumed your opioid of choice, you will begin to feel the physical and psychological effects associated with withdrawal. Although withdrawal symptoms can differ, you will feel nauseous, anxious, and shaky more often than not. Many clients compare detoxing from opioids as feeling as though they are combating the symptoms of a bad case of the flu.

Museum of Modern Art

If you are an art enthusiast, you are sure to enjoy a trip to the Museum of Modern Art. This museum’s halls are filled with a mix of contemporary art, which includes photography, prints, and sculptures. The museum’s concept was initially developed by Abby Aldrick Rockefeller, the wife of John D. Rockefeller, Jr., in 1929. Since then, the museum has grown to attract millions of tourists throughout the year. You can visit the Museum of Modern Art any day of the week between 10:30 AM and 5:30 PM.

The Museum of Modern Art is located at 11 W. 52rd Street, New York, NY 10019.

Belvedere Castle

Located in the heart of Central Park is the majestic Belvedere Castle. Calvert Vaux built the castle in 1869 who was one of the co-designers of Central Park. The name “Belvedere” was given to the castle because of the beautiful view associated with this landmark. The venue plays an integral part in the park overall because it serves as the visitor center, as well as the gift shop. Many people walk up the winding stairs of the castle so that they can take breathtaking pictures.

You can access the Belvedere Castle at 79th Street, New York, New York 10024.

Conservatory Garden

Are you looking for an outdoor location where you can catch your breath and enjoy the fresh air for a few minutes? Conservatory Garden is an excellent spot. This formal garden is located near Museum Mile in the northeast corner of Central Park. The greenhouse located within Conservatory Garden was first erected in 1898 and contains a beautiful array of plants and flowers. Although the garden did fall into disrepair between the end of World War II and the 1970s, this venue has since been restored to its former beauty.

You can visit Conservatory Garden at 1233 5th Avenue, New York, NY 10029.
