Alcohol Rehab for Manhattan Residents

What Does Alcohol Rehab Consist Of?

Do you find that you wake up in the morning and the first thing you think of is when you can take your first drink? Do you continuously forget events of the previous night as a result of your drinking? Is your drinking beginning to harm your personal and professional life? If the answer is yes, then it is time for you to consider enrolling in a treatment program for alcoholism.

First, Alcohol Detox

Before you can move forward with any treatment for an addiction to alcoholism, you must first remove the influence of alcohol from your body. In most cases, this cannot be done safely unless you are under the care of a trained medical professional. Within a few hours of the last time you drank, you will begin to experience alcohol withdrawal symptoms if you do not drink again. These symptoms can range from mild to severe and include shakiness, restlessness, vomiting, and accelerated heart rate.

Getting to the Root of Alcohol Addiction

In order for you to work through your addiction, you must have a firm understanding of what may have led you down the path to addiction in the first place. For example, unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for a person who is a first responder or a person who served in the military to see or experience things and events that are difficult, if not impossible, to process. In cases such as this, that person may turn toward alcohol as a way to self-medicate or self-soothe.

Overcoming Addiction with Therapy

At Legacy Healing Center in South Florida, we implement various therapy forms that can help you overcome your addiction. Although participating in these counseling types may feel uncomfortable or awkward at times, we always recommend that you try to keep an open mind to what you hear during these different sessions. For example, our group therapy meetings will usually follow the format of a 12-step meeting. During these sessions, you will have the chance to listen to your fellow group attendees’ experiences or thoughts about different addiction and recovery topics. You will also have your opportunity to share your feelings regarding the subject.

Individual therapy provides you with a safe environment where you can share certain aspects of your life that you may not feel comfortable talking about in a group format. These sessions will involve meeting one-on-one with one of our counselors to discuss past traumas, your feelings as you progress in your program, and any other changes you would like to make to your plan. Our intake specialist can provide you with more insight into the different therapy options we offer at Legacy.

Sober Friendly Attractions Near Manhattan

Understandably, you will likely feel excited by the prospect of returning to Manhattan once you are done with treatment at Legacy in South Florida. However, it’s essential that when you do get home, you ensure that you set yourself up with a regular schedule of attending 12 step meetings, which will only help reinforce the critical tools and lessons that you learned during the time you were at Legacy. Once you have established a regular yet sober routine, we recommend that you take advantage of visiting some of the sober friendly attractions in and around the Manhattan area. Here are a few great suggestions for places to visit:

Central Park Zoo

Many people are surprised to learn that there is a zoo in the center of the continuous rush associated with Manhattan. In fact, Central Park is home to a small zoo that has an exciting assortment of furry guests. One of the best features about this zoo is that it is open seven days a week, making it a comfortable place to fit into your schedule. Visitors are welcome Monday through Friday between 10 AM and 5 PM, with hours extended to 5:30 PM on the weekends.

The Central Park Zoo is located between E. 63rd and E. 65th Streets, New York, NY 10009.

The Cloisters

The Cloisters are a subsection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This unique museum is located in the Hudson Heights section of Manhattan and is home to various incredible Renaissance and Medieval art and architecture. The Cloisters regularly host different educational programs throughout the year geared toward visitors of almost any age. Children interested in the drawing are sure to enjoy the art classes while adults who love art history will enjoy the various lectures.

You can visit The Cloisters at 99 Margaret Corbin Drive, New York, NY 10040.

Madison Square Garden

Madison Square Garden is known around the world as a sports lover’s paradise. This venue is home to the New York Knicks as well as the New York Rangers. Additionally, multiple concerts are held throughout the year when games are not taking place. Don’t forget, there is also a theater that is connected to Madison Square Garden that features various shows. However, it’s important to note that Madison Square Garden does sell alcohol, so if you feel uncomfortable, you can always invite a sober friend to go with you to an event.

Madison Square Garden is located at 4 Pennsylvania Plaza, New York, NY 10001.
