See What Our Richmond Opioid Detox Patients Have To Say…

“Can’t thank this place enough, and especially the employees–Mary Alice, nurse practitioners Lauren and Joan. These 3 people are AMAZING, as well as everyone else but, my visit was primarily with these 3 delightful guys. They really treat their patients very well. Mary got straight to the point, get in, get u comfy, and get u back to you cozy bed as home. And Lauren, I can’t say enough good things about this nurse practitioner. She’s knowledgeable, professional and all the other good things. My first meet with her, I could tell she was getting upset with my primary doc because he prescribed me pain meds. So I knew I had the right person to help me. Joan I’m sorry I don’t have much to say, but from our short meet you were very delightful and gave me some excellent advice. Well I can go on and on but, great place, #1 recommend. Thank you guys.”

Opioid Patient — Richmond, VA, September 2020

“Originally looked for a place that would medically induce coma for a few days to detox while unconscious. After reading Coleman Institute website, I learned that would be dangerous. Easy to schedule appointment with the Coleman Institute, and staff was incredibly caring, attentive, and encouraging…I no longer feel the need to use illegal drugs. The implant ensured I wouldn’t feel anything if I tried to use opiates again, and that mental aspect definitely strengthened my resolve to stay away from that temptation. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR HELPING ME GET MY LIFE BACK! The Coleman Institute has saved my heath, my relationships, my career, my future… my LIFE!”

Katie – Richmond, VA, January 2018

“I am writing today to thank Dr. Coleman for being there to save the life of my son and his girlfriend. After my husband passed away my son turned to drugs to medicate himself from the pain of his fathers passing. This drug addiction went from OxyContin then to Heroine and lasted ten years and inpatient 5 time. To no avail I thought there was no longer any hope for him surviving this horrible addiction. Then we found the Coleman Institute. 5 1/2 years later they are still sober working at the family business. I just wanted to say thank you thank you thank you and God Bless you!!”

How Big a Problem are Opioids Like Percocet® in Virginia?

The opioid crisis has been a major public health issue in Virginia, and prescription opioids like Percocet® have been a big part of the problem. Percocet® is a powerful prescription pain medication that contains oxycodone, a potent opiate. It is very effective at managing pain when administered by a professional, but because it is an opioid, it can easily cause dependence and addiction. In 2019, the Stamford Institute for Economic Policy Research cited data from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) that shows a strong correlation between the increase in clinical use of prescription opioids like Percocet® and an increase in deaths involving those drugs.

According to the data, clinical use of prescription opioids quadrupled between the years 2000 and 2010, and this was accompanied by a 300 percent increase in deaths involving prescription opioids. Data from the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association (VHHA) Analytics Team shows that clinical use of opioids in Virginia has declined considerably since then, but dependence and addiction in the patients who are still prescribed these medications is still an issue, and these medications can still be obtained on the street through illegal means.

The Virginia Department of Health also recently reported on data from 2022 that shows that the opioid epidemic is still a major problem here:

  • 2,490 total drug overdose deaths
  • 79% of the drug overdose deaths in Virginia involved opioids
  • 22,398 emergency department visits due to drug overdose
  • 412 Virginia infants under 1 year old hospitalized with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) due to maternal opioid use

If you or a loved one have been impacted by opioid use due to a prescription of pain medication like Percocet®, know that you are not alone. Call us now at 877-773-3869 or schedule a callback below to learn more about our Percocet® Detox.


What To Expect From Our Percocet® Detox Program In Richmond, VA

When you’re ready to stop using Percocet® and start your journey to recovery, choosing the right opioid detox program in Richmond, VA is a crucial first step. We want to help you through this process in any way we can. Here’s what you can expect when you call us and schedule a Percocet® Detox treatment using the Coleman Method:

Getting Started:

Start the process by calling us now at 877-773-3869 or schedule a callback with one of the Care Advocates. During this initial call, our Care Advocates will answer any and all questions you might have about our outpatient Percocet® Detox program and help you decide on the dates you would like to start treatment. We can typically schedule your treatment within a week of your call – there is no waiting list.

Before Your Appointment:

We ask all of our patients to stop taking their Percocet® 16 to 48 hours before their first scheduled appointment, based on guidance from our physicians. We also ask that all patients have a support person with them who can be present for the duration of the detox program and for 48 hours after detox is completed. Patients undergoing our Percocet® detox treatment should not drive motor vehicles and should be monitored at all times to ensure their safety.

Your 1st Appointment:

When you arrive at your first appointment at our Richmond, VA facility, you will be in mild withdrawal from stopping your Percocet® use 16 to 48 hours prior to the appointment. One of our licensed, experienced practitioners will give you a regimen of comfort medications in doses tailored to your specific needs throughout the day to help alleviate your withdrawal symptoms. You will also receive micro-dose Naltrexone.

Intermediate Appointments:

The intermediate days of the Percocet® Detox program are much like the first day. Your practitioner will continue to manage and provide comfort medications to you throughout the day, tailoring the doses to your individual needs. You will also be given more micro-dose Naltrexone aid in the process.

Final Appointment:

This final appointment of the detox process typically takes around 6 to 8 hours, during which time you will be monitored closely to ensure treatment is going as it should. After this appointment, your detox is complete and you will be given long-acting Naltrexone to help reduce cravings. Some patients opt to have Naltrexone injections, while others choose Naltrexone implants. Many patients find that this is just the support they need to build healthier habits and start their new, addiction-free life.


Why The Coleman Institute’s Percocet® Detox Program – The Fast And Comfortable Option

Most people cannot stop using Percocet® without experiencing physically and mentally distressing withdrawal symptoms. People who try to self-detox usually quickly learn that they’ll need professional help through medical detoxification to stop using Percocet® successfully. Here are some common Percocet® detox options in the Richmond, VA area:


Stopping use of Percocet® on your own can be both uncomfortable and dangerous. People who try to “go cold turkey” and stop using Percocet® suddenly can experience extreme physical discomfort from withdrawal, and these withdrawal symptoms can be so severe that they become life threatening. Some try to stop using Percocet® by trying to taper off their use and wean themselves off of it, but this is almost never successful. The withdrawal symptoms and lack of support result in relapse for most people who try to self-detox. Because of the potential safety concerns and high probability of relapse, we do not recommend that anyone try to self-detox from Percocet® or any other opioid.

Inpatient Detox:

Inpatient Percocet® detox requires a long stay in a hospital or rehab facility where the patient can be closely monitored by medical professionals and given medications to help with pain and discomfort as they detox. The length of a rehab stay varies depending on the patient’s needs, but it is not unheard of for inpatient rehab to last upwards of 30 days. Such a long stay in rehab can be very disruptive to a patient’s life and can be very expensive.

Ultra Rapid Opioid Detoxification (URD or UROD):

This is an inpatient detoxification process where a hospitalized patient is put under general anesthesia and given intravenous doses of opioid antagonists. As the name suggests, this method can fully flush the drugs out of a patient’s system very quickly, often in as little as five minutes. However, this detox method is extremely expensive and can come with serious medical risks. There have been some fatalities reported after this treatment. The Coleman Institute has not offered Ultra Rapid Detox since 2001 because of the potential risks.

Methadone or Buprenorphine:

Methadone and Buprenorphine can be very useful in helping people suffering from Percocet® addiction by transitioning them away from their Percocet® use to this legal (when prescribed) alternative. When given under the supervision of an experienced professional, these drugs can be very effective. But this form of Medication-Assisted Treatment can result in the challenge of having to detox off of the Methadone or Buprenorphine once the patient is ready to stop using opioids altogether. Because these substances are still opioids, they can result in withdrawal symptoms when usage is stopped. Most patients who have tried this method say that detoxing off of Methadone or Buprenorphine can be more difficult than withdrawing from other opioids.

Our Outpatient Percocet® Detox Program:

The Coleman Method of Percocet® detox uses a tailored regimen of comfort medications along with Naltrexone Therapy to help people who are ready to stop using Percocet® detox safely in as little as 3-8 days with fewer risks and costs than other detox programs and very little disruption to the patient’s everyday life. We think our program’s 98% completion rate speaks for itself.
