Towing and Recovery

Yesterday on my bike a huge flatbed roared past me. Stenciled onto the back of the cab were big red letters: TOWING and RECOVERY.

I thought, now that would be an interesting way to tout our own services at The Coleman Institute…

I looked up a couple definitions of Towing:

“The act of hauling something (as a vehicle) by means of a hitch or rope” and another, “assisting a vessel unable to maneuver by pulling, pushing or towing alongside”.

Either of these makes a nice metaphor.

While most of the clients we work with come of their own free will, there is still a bit of reluctance to leave the familiar-albeit-miserable life of opiate (alcohol or benzo) addiction.

We are delighted to do our part to ‘tow’ you along as you navigate one of the more formidable parts of entering Recovery: Detoxification.

It’s not painless, but there is a sense of release and relief for the person who has reached out for help and put himself in our hands.

Call us if you need a Tow job. We call it our Accelerated Opiate Detox. Recovery is then one step closer.
