See What Our Richmond Opioid Detox Patients Have To Say…

“Just finished 5 day detox Friday. I feel a hundred times better than what I thought I would. Kathy is amazing, she got me comfortable as quick as possible on the 1st day. I was in bad withdrawal ,she was literally running to get me relief asap.DR. Coleman just has a charm about him.He inserted my implant on the 5th day. Rachael is fabulous too.. I was addicted to Opana®, which are one of the worst opiates. I hardly felt any withdrawal after the first day. I tried detoxing myself numerous times during my 8 yr abuse , which obviously didn’t work. Today I am 8 days opiate free. Don’t be scared at all , it’s almost painless . Thanx again to everyone at the Richmond Coleman center.”

KK – Richmond, VA, July 2016

“I have battled addiction to opiates from the young age of sixteen. The Coleman institute was the most caring and concerned treatment facility I have ever come across. The protocols they have in place made my detox from methadone easier than I ever expected. This is the one and only program I would ever recommend for someone struggling with addiction. At the end of the detox you have the option for naltrexone implants to help secure sobriety in the beginning months. Dr. Coleman I am eternally grateful to you and your staff for helping me regain my life.”

Travis Thompson – Richmond, VA, 2017

“Johnnelle met us with a smile and positive attitude every morning. She made us feel welcomed, comfortable and in good hands. Even when faced by distressed individuals, all team members remained positive, compassionate and eager to meet us where we were at, educate us and ease our stress. On the final day, no one, including the Doctor rushed us through. They took whatever time was needed to connect with and talk to us about the day’s plan and the path forward. What a great experience during a trying time.”

Mary Hubschmitt – Richmond, VA, 2023

How Big a Problem are Opioids like Opana® in Virginia?

Opioids like Opana® have had a huge negative impact on the lives of Virginians. Opana® is a very potent opioid that can be very addictive and very very difficult to detox from. In 2017, the FDA requested that Opana® be removed from the market because it has such a high potential for abuse and addiction. This was the first time the FDA had ever done this.

In December 2023, the Virginia Department of Health shared some startling facts about how the opioid epidemic impacted Virginia:

  • 2,490 total drug overdose deaths
  • 79% of drug overdose deaths in Virginia involved opioids
  • 22,398 emergency department visits due to drug overdose, a 5% increase from 2021
  • 412 Virginia infants under 1 year old hospitalized with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS)

If you or a loved one have been impacted by the prevalence of opioids like Opana® in Virginia, know that you are not alone. Call us now at 877-773-3869 or schedule a callback below to learn more about how you can detox off of Opana® and other opioids.


What To Expect From Our Opana® Detox Program In Richmond, VA

Opana® is a particularly difficult opioid to detox from, so choosing the right detox program is a crucial step on your journey to recovery. If you decide to call our Richmond office to try the Coleman Method, here’s what you can expect:

Getting Started:

You can get started by calling us now at 877-773-3869 or request a callback from a Care Advocate. During the initial call, our Care Advocates will answer any questions you may have about our unique approach to Opana® detox and will help you choose your treatment dates. Treatment can typically begin within a week of your initial call – there is no waiting list.

Before Your Appointment:

We ask all of our Opana® detox patients to stop taking Opana® 16 to 48 hours before their first scheduled appointment at our Richmond, VA facility, based on guidance from our doctors. We also ask all of our patients to have a support person present for the entirety of the detox program and for 48 hours after detox is finished. Opana® detox patients should not drive motor vehicles and should be monitored at all times to ensure their safety.

Your First Appointment:

At your first appointment, you will likely be in mild withdrawal from stopping the use of Opana® 16-48 hours before the appointment. One of our experienced, licensed practitioners will give you tailored doses of comfort medications throughout the day to help relieve uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. The practitioner will also give you micro-dose Naltrexone.

Intermediate Appointments:

Intermediate Opana® detox appointments are very similar to the first appointment. The practitioner will continue managing and providing doses of comfort medications throughout the day, tailoring the doses to your needs. They will continue to use micro-dose Naltrexone.

Final Appointment:

On the final day of Opana® detox, you will have made significant progress. You can rest comfortably in a private room at our Richmond, VA detox center while the remaining Opana® is gently removed from your brain. This final removal process typically takes around 6 to 8 hours, during which patients are monitored closely to ensure safety. At this point, you will be finished with detox. You will be given long-acting Naltrexone in the form of either a Vivitrol injection or an implant, either of which will slowly release Naltrexone into your body over the course of several weeks. This helps to reduce cravings and gives you the freedom to build healthier habits and live your new life, free from addiction.


Why The Coleman Institute’s Accelerated Opana® Detox Program – The Fast And Comfortable Option

Most people are not able to stop using opioids without experiencing severe withdrawal symptoms, and Opana® in particular is one of the more difficult opioids to stop using. Users quickly learn that they need to seek professional help through a medical detoxification program. Here are some common options for Opana® detox in the Richmond, VA area:


Trying to stop using Opana® without assistance is extremely difficult and can be extremely dangerous. “Going cold turkey” and quitting suddenly without medical supervision can cause extreme physical pain and discomfort, and symptoms could get so severe that they become life threatening, Sometimes people attempt to stop using Opana® by tapering their usual dose down and trying to gradually wean themselves off of it, but this is almost never successful. People who attempt to self-detox usually find themselves relapsing to relieve the physical and mental distress caused by withdrawal. Because of the high probability of relapse and potential safety concerns, we do not recommend that anyone attempt to self-detox from Opana®.

Inpatient Detox:

Inpatient Opana® detox requires a patient to have a fairly long stay in a hospital or rehab facility where they can be monitored by addiction specialists and given medications to help with the pain and discomfort of withdrawal. The length of the stay depends on the severity of the patient’s condition, but it could last for upwards of 30 days in some cases. Such a long stay in inpatient rehab can be very disruptive to the patient’s life and can end up being very expensive.

Ultra Rapid Opioid Detoxification (URD or UROD):

Ultra rapid Opana® detox involves hospitalizing a patient so they can be put under general anesthesia and given intravenous doses of opioid antagonists like Naltrexone intravenously. This method can work very quickly, fully flushing the opioids out of a person’s systems in as little as five minutes, but it is extremely expensive and can result in serious health complications. There have been some reported deaths after this treatment method. The Coleman Institute stopped doing ultra rapid detox in 2001 because of the potential dangers.

Methadone or Buprenorphine:

Methadone or Buprenorphine have been very useful medications that help people suffering from opioid addiction to transition from more dangerous opioids like Opana® to a legal (when prescribed by a doctor) alternative. However, one must keep in mind that Methadone and Buprenorphine are still opioids. When a patient decides they want to stop using opioids altogether, they will still face the challenge of detoxing from their Methadone or Buprenorphine. Because they are opioids, stopping the use of Methadone or Buprenorphine can result in severe withdrawal symptoms. Many of our patients have told us that detoxing from Methadone and Buprenorphine can be more difficult than withdrawing from other opioids.

Our Outpatient Opana® Detox Program:

The Coleman Method of Opana® Detox uses a regimen of comfort medications tailored specifically to each patient’s needs alongside Naltrexone Therapy to help patients detox from Opana® safely in as little as 3 to 8 days without the potential risks or costs of other types of detox and with as little disruption to the patient’s daily life as possible. The program has a 98% completion rate, and we think this statistic speaks for itself.
