DETOXIFICATION FROM CHRONIC PAIN MEDICATIONS
It's not fair. You are taking lots of pain medicines and yet you are still in pain all day, every day. As if that's not enough, you have to suffer through all the side effects of the drugs you are taking the fatigue, insomnia, constipation, irritability and foggy thinking. It comes and goes but it never really goes away. And what is worse is that you know you are hooked on drugs. You need them just to feel half-way normal. Sometimes you have to convince your doctor to increase the dose or, even worse, get some from friends.
If you want to stop this insanity, call us at the Coleman Institute. We have successfully detoxified over 300 chronic pain patients and we have found that usually their pain actually goes down when they are off all the opiates. Their brain goes back to normal and is able to start producing its own natural painkillers endorphins. At this point, they finally start feeling alive again and are able to get back to their old selves and lives.
Our accelerated detox method usually completes the detoxification in only three or four days. Patients are sedated throughout the entire process and they have reported that it was a very comfortable procedure. More importantly, this process is safe and very affordable. After the detox is completed, we usually recommend a Naltrexone implant. This implant seems to decrease pain and help the brain heal more quickly.

I just wanted to send you an email that you can share with the TCI staff, and possibly some of your coaching students if you want to or find it relevant. I came to The Coleman Institute in late December of 2009 after being on Suboxone for approximately 7 months as treatment to my addiction to chronic pain medication, namely OxyContin. I participated in the ten day rapid detox treatment followed by a year's worth of Naltrexone implants. I followed up with coaching via Skype with Chris at TCI, which was the highlight of my Tuesday mornings. Chris always gave me straight forward advice about what ever situation I found myself in at the time, even if I didn't want to hear it. It is always easier for an addict to ignore what they don't want to hear, and only take in the parts that they can skew to their advantage, and that's exactly what I did. I wasn't fully ready to change everything I had known for the past 4 years of my life. I was scared, and I let fear influence every decision I made which led me to do what was comfortable, and for me, being comfortable meant hanging around the same people at the same places. I thought this wasn't a problem because I had my implants, and I couldn't get high even if I wanted to. However, after 10 months of implants one got infected, and within five days of my implant coming out I was using again. This time it was worse than before, and I couldn't believe I had done the same thing to myself after I had known the freedom of a sober life. Chris referred me to Edge Hill Treatment center in Winchester, VA and I began treatment on the 3rd of November. I was in Edge Hill for 30 days, and in those 30 days something clicked for me. I came to a lot of realizations while I was in Edge Hill, and I truly believe that it saved my life. Most of all I learned I had to let go of all of my resentments I kept in a death grip for so many years. My entire stay was truly an eye-opening experience. I could go on for days about the staff and all of the people I met along the way, but I'll just say that I couldn't imagine better people working together to help suffering addicts, they are miracle workers. Since my stay at Edge Hill, I have graduated college with a degree in Fashion Merchandising/Business Communication and plan to start grad school in August pursuing an Executive MBA. I also met my husband a week after I came home. We started dating in December, and got married in September of last year. Since my graduation, I am currently employed as an Account Specialist for one of the most productive insurance firms in the state. A sober life used to be a distant memory when I was in my active addiction; addiction is now the memory and, I have the life that I always knew I deserved but I could never achieve. I owe it all to the staff of The Coleman Institute for giving me the foundation I needed to grow and conquer my demons. Without you guys, I probably wouldn't be here today, and for that, I cannot thank you enough.
Back a few years ago I was having chronic pain in my left leg. After a year of going from doctor to doctor and eating pain medication like candy was finally diagnose with a disease called Avascular Necrosis. I had a core decompressing surgery done to correct the problem but little did I know my problems were just starting. For the next 3 to 4 years I struggled with a major addiction problem in the end I was taking 200 to 300 mg of morphine per day. My wife bless her heart found the Coleman institute on the internet and set me up for detox and an implant. The detox compared to cold turkey was a breeze and the implant worked for me it was nothing short of a miracle. No cravings and I started feeling like my old self I thing. I had been in a drug haze so long I forgot how to feel. The implant allowed me a window of opportunity to get a handle on thinks without the cravings and withdrawals guiding my decisions it was great. But the story continues because in January of this year my hip pain return worse than before so I had to have an implant placed in my hip joint to allow blood flow to my hip. (Here is where I got real stupid) instead of informing the Doctor about my addiction problem I thought I could handle it and I was wrong. All the old behaviors started back up (once and addict always and addict). So I tried getting clean myself with Methadone this was the 2nd big mistake I should have researched this, the withdraw from it to me is 10 time worse than morphine. To make a long story short I am currently on my 18th day with no methadone and I will be back at the Coleman Institute in 2 weeks to get my second implant. The implant is the best thing I have seen for addiction and thank god for all the people there.
