The Coleman Institute Now Offering Effective Opioid Detoxification Services In Louisiana

The Coleman Institute, a leader in opioid addiction treatment, specializing in outpatient detoxification, announced today the addition of a new office in Lake Charles, Louisiana. The Coleman Institute and AppleGate Recovery, both BayMark Health Services companies, are collaborating to expand service options that are proven, live-saving treatments for opioid use disorder (OUD). Dr. Philip Isherwood, Medical Director for AppleGate Recovery, will lead the new service in Louisiana.

The Coleman Institute’s programs utilize medically supervised detoxification to comfortably and safely control the physical withdrawal symptoms that can make recovery from opioid addiction challenging, if not impossible. The combination of convenient, outpatient detoxification and ongoing support, including Naltrexone therapy, provides patients with a comprehensive, individualized treatment plan offering the real opportunity to achieve long-term recovery. Dr. Isherwood and other staff will be offering a full range of treatment services, including six months of after-care services to help patients develop ongoing recovery support systems.

Dr. Peter Coleman, founder and National Medical Director for The Coleman Institute shared, “While access to life-changing treatment options is better than ever before, the effects of the opioid crisis persist. The Coleman Institute continues to focus on making treatment available to those who need it most by partnering with physicians who have the same goals of providing compassionate, patient-focused care. Dr. Isherwood and the AppleGate Recovery team absolutely share those values and are a welcomed addition to the Coleman team.”

The Coleman Institute’s Dr. Nathan Moore featured in WestWord‘s article on kratom addiction

Dr. Nathan Moore, of the Coleman Institute’s Denver location, was recently quoted in Westword’s article, “Kratom Addiction: Colorado Clinics’ Widely Different Reports.”

One reason kratom, a popular herb of Southeast Asian origin, remains so controversial is because there’s no consensus about its safety as a pain reliever or effectiveness as a tool for helping people get off heroin and other opiates. Take a recent post in which one Colorado parent said the substance turned his son into a jittery wreck and another claimed it had literally saved her daughter’s life.

A similar disconnect is evident among clinicians in Colorado.

“We’re seeing quite a lot of kratom-use disorders, and it seems to be on the rise,” says Dr. Nathan Moore, a board-certified addiction specialist currently working with the Denver branch of the Coleman Institute, a treatment center with offices across the country. Moore adds that ending a dependency on the substance shares plenty in common with the process involved in kicking the aforementioned deadly drugs.
