The Real Slim Shady Did Stand Up...for Sobriety!

Marshall Bruce Mathers III revolutionized the hip-hop/rap scene when he debuted in 1999 with his seminal album The Slim Shady LP.  He went on to become the best-selling music artist of the 2000's even capturing the Oscar for Best Original Song for his musical composition 'Lose Yourself' as seen in the film 8 Mile.  As the trappings and pressures of fame arrived, Mathers turned towards prescription drugs, including Vicodin, Ambien, and Valium.  His addiction would almost cost him his life.  

Now he is trying to help others.  He tells his story in a new documentary film called How to Make Money Selling Drugs.  Read more here.

At The Coleman Institute, we want to help people get clean and stay clean off addictive prescription drugs, even when given for chronic pain.  If you or someone you love is in need of detox from opiates, alcohol, benzos, Methadone or Suboxone, please do not hesitate to call Jennifer Pius or Amy Stewart at  1-877-773-3869.  We're waiting to hear from you!
