The Pervasive Use of Opiate Drugs and Alcohol -- What You Can Do!

In the last several years, the use of opiate drugs has been steadily on the rise. People of all ages, from school children to the elderly, have fallen victim to the lure of Oxycontin, Heroin, Percocet, Hydrocodone, Dilaudid, Demerol, and Methadone. The drugs work in a similar way: They attach to the brain's "feel good" receptors, and all too soon that feeling of temporary euphoria becomes irresistible and turns into addiction.

Fortunately, there are effective and fast treatment options that really work, such as the Accelerated Detoxification Technique (ADT) found at the Coleman Institute. This treatment system approaches addiction and recovery in an entirely new way, and has very positive results because it actually removes all traces of the drugs from the patient's brain.

The Accelerated Detoxification Technique (ADT) is not a dangerous or painful procedure by any means: In fact, it is a quicker way to wash the brain totally clean of the opiates that are crippling it, making the patient's pain and suffering much shorter. The program does not require general anesthesia or hospitalization, meaning that the cost is considerably lessened. The patient is supervised through every step of the detox process, and in general the entire detox process takes three days of outpatient visits.  The typical in-hospital detox program takes a week or often more, and is very painful.

Our three day outpatient process uses mild sedatives to help keep the patient comfortable, coupled with a very small dermal implant (Naltrexone.)  Implantation is a quick and easy procedure and most patients do not feel any pain associated with the Naltrexone implant since it is so small.  The purpose of the Naltrexone is to prevent opiates from getting to the receptors in the brain for about two to three months.  This means patients have a huge jump start on learning how to live drug-free.

The Coleman Institute has learned, through years of experience and dedicated patient care, that surviving opiate and alcohol addiction does not have to be a miserable and painful road.  The program at the institute give patients the tools they need to start life drug-free in the least painful way possible!
