Staying Sober During The Holidays

I always like to forward good tips about staying sober during the holidays. We see so many patients who talk about their ‘triggers’ during those times. I thought this article contained some great ideas. He clearly references things from The Recovery Book, so unless you read the book, some of the things may not be completely fleshed out.

Thanksgiving Detox – The Coleman Way

There are multiple suggestions for detoxing after indulging in the overabundance of food and drink that many people experience during the Thanksgiving holidays. Warm water plus lemon, drinking green juice, using a body brush, yoga, and meditation are a few. While all of these may be great idea for a post holiday detox, I just want to make you aware that if you or a loved one needs help detoxing off opioids, The Coleman Institute is available 365 days a year to help you.

Rapid Opiate Detox: Too Good To Be True?

I had a great visit with my patient, Edward (not his name) earlier this week. Edward grew up in West Virginia and started using Oxycontin toward the end of his high school years. He got hooked and when pills became expensive, he started using heroin. Edward is kind, smart, shy, funny and a talented chef. Heroin robbed him of all those things. He spent several agonizing years avoiding relationships, betraying close friends and family, crashing anywhere he could, and basically cutting off any opportunity he had to continue to develop into the person he was capable of being.
