Hopeless To Hopeful – Two Guys and a Year Of Sobriety

By The Coleman Institute

Sometimes I can go several months between seeing a patient because he or she is on another provider’s schedule. It’s one of the nice things about our office – that all of the providers can get to know each other’s patients.

Earlier this week, I had the privilege of following up with two wonderful men who both completed alcohol detoxes at the Coleman Institute for Addiction Medicine just over a year ago.

Supporting a Loved One Through Opioid Addiction and Recovery

By The Coleman Institute

Many of us have been, or are continuing to be, affected by the opioid epidemic in some way. Whether you’ve gone through struggles with addiction yourself, or are dealing with the addiction of a family member or friend, you’re certainly not alone. The prevalence of the opioid crisis in the United States won’t be diminished without raising awareness and promoting understanding.

The Easiest and Fastest Way to Detox Off Opioids

By Joan R. Shepherd FNP

These were not my words, but the words of a patient who completed a 5-day opioid detox with us a few weeks ago. A couple of years ago, his detox would probably have been 3 days—he believed he was using a gram or a gram and a half of heroin a day—but when fentanyl was discovered in his urine, the length of his outpatient detox was increased.

Recovery Month 2018

By Joan R. Shepherd FNP

Over eleven years ago I answered an ad in the paper for a job as a Family Nurse Practitioner. (Yes, we actually still used the newspapers and looked in the classifieds for jobs at that time.)

The office was an easy commute (check).

I liked the staff and the ambience of the office (check).

The schedule and benefits met my needs (check, check).

It looked like the perfect job, and I appeared to be a good fit, based on how nicely the interview was going.

Anesthesia Detox – Yesterday’s Treatment!

By Peter R. Coleman, MD

Every now and then, I get questions about whether we still do the Anesthesia Detox. This treatment method has many names and variations, including an Ultra-Rapid Detox (URD or UROD), a Rapid Drug Detox, an Anesthesia-Assisted Rapid Opioid Detoxification (AAROD), or a Rapid Opiate Detox under Sedation. Of course, the answer is that the Coleman Institute has not performed an opioid detox using anesthesia since 2001 – so it really is yesterday’s treatment.
