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.”
