Joan R. Shepherd, FNP

We ask people after completing an Accelerated Opiate Detox, if they’d be willing to be contacted by people who are ‘on the fence’ about our method.  It’s one thing to ask questions of our staff about the detox process.  However, it is an entirely different one to hear from a patient who has gone through the process and are on the other side of it.

I just spoke to the mom of one of our recent patients.  When her son’s primary care doctor inquired how he was doing since the detox he replied, “I can’t wipe the smile off my face.”

She said he went home that afternoon, called his dealer and told him he was changing his number.  Then he suggested his dealer look into detoxing at The Coleman Institute!

He’s coming next week for his 2nd implant.  He lost his job as a result of his opiate use, but his baby is due next month and he’ll be clean.

If you are considering an Accelerated Opiate Detox, but want to hear about it from the patients’ perspective, let us know.  As the saying goes, ‘Success Leaves Clues’.  There are lots of ‘clues’ in the lives of people who are living in recovery!
