Chronic Pain Medication Detox

It's hard to explain chronic pain to someone who has never experienced it.  One person's pain is never similar to another and after a point in time people start asking questions like "Aren't you used to it by now?" or "It's all in your head".  So it's only natural that you look for a way out, something to ease the pain, something to make it go away.  That's because even if you can deal with all the comments and questions, the effect this pain has on the quality of your life just cannot be ignored.

At times like this, the pain medication can seem like a God-send, that will miraculously remove all signs of this problem, but in reality, it only serves to cause more problems.  Like everything else in life, there is no quick fix for chronic pain and the chronic pain medication that promises a quick fix also brings with it many side effects, the worst of them being addiction.  And the pain is still there.

At The Coleman Institute, we can't claim to know exactly how you feel.  That's because even if some of us have gone through similar experiences, your experience is still unique and different from what we've ever known.  However, what we do know is that we have the expertise and the motivation to see you through.   We have a deep understanding of how each drug affects your system and we also know the type of help your body needs to return to its natural state.

We don't believe in taking one form of addiction away only to replace it with another.  Unfortunately, detox centers across America feel that this is acceptable, and often 'detox' patients from their chronic pain medication by giving them Methadone or Suboxone.  Although these medications may give you release from your addiction to pain medication, they do not give your body a chance to heal naturally.  Rather they take the place of what was previously your chronic pain medication, leaving you just as dependent, only now with severe side effects.

This is not the best option.  Therefore, we help you detox in the truest sense of the word.  By helping your body to learn how to operate without these drugs in your bloodstream, we begin to help you to understand that you do not need these chronic pain medications to be happy or 'healthy'.  By supporting you as you abstain from the chronic pain medication for a few days, we enable your body to then take the help of Naltrexone.  Unlike Methadone and Suboxone, Naltrexone doesn't mimic the chronic pain medication.  Rather, it inhibits anything that even resembles these medications from communicating between neurons, thus putting a full stop to any effects that these drugs gave you.

It's not easy, and for some it may be downright painful but with the help of the Naltrexone implant, over a period of time your body begins to learn how to live without the drugs that it was dependent on for so long.  Eventually, with our support, you can go back to enjoying life dependence free and most of all, happy.

At The Coleman Institute, we love to help people get clean and stay clean.  If you or someone you love is in need of detox from opiatesalcoholbenzosMethadone, or Suboxone, please do not hesitant to call Jennifer Pius at 1-877-77-DETOX (33869).  We are here to help you and yours get clean and stay clean!
