See What Our Richmond Opioid Detox Patients Have To Say…

“Program was as described. My opiate addiction was the result of medication prescribed by physicians. When I couldn’t detox by myself I consulted three physicians for help. Two stared at me blankly and the third wanted to addict me to methadone or suboxone for an unspecified amount of time. The Coleman process solved my problem quickly, professionally and sympathetically. From the spouse: Your program completely changed my husband’s personality from obnoxious, selfish, complaining monster back to the loving, caring man I knew for the 32 years previous to oxycodone! Thank you.”

WO – Richmond, VA, June 2017

“This is a much better alternative to detoxing in a hospital setting. The staff are more respectful and they make sure that you are always comfortable throughout the entire process.”

Mary – Richmond, VA, September 2019

“The entire staff are incredibly understanding, knowledgeable, kind and friendly. They are committed to improving the quality of life for anyone who walks through their doors. I love everyone there. Thank you all for what you do.”

Robert – Richmond, VA, May 2019

How Big a Problem are Prescription Opioids Like Oxycodone in Virginia?

Opioid use has been one of the biggest public health crises in Virginia in recent memory, and the prevalence of prescription opioids like Oxycodone have been a large part of the problem. Oxycodone is a potent opioid medication that is used to treat moderate to severe pain. It can be extremely effective as a pain reliever when used properly, but when used improperly it can produce a euphoric high, giving it high potential for misuse and addiction.

The Stamford Institute for Economic Policy Research published a 2019 policy paper that used data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to show a strong correlation between the quadrupling of the number of opioid prescriptions given out by physicians between the years 2000 and 2010 and a 300 percent increase in deaths involving opioid overdose during the same period.

The Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association (VHHA) released data that shows that the number of opioid prescriptions has gone down quite a bit in recent years, but even with a decline in prescriptions, the danger of developing a dependence or addiction remains for patients who are still prescribed these medications, and the medications can still be obtained illegally on the streets, often adulterated by powerful opioids like Fentanyl to increase their potency.

In December 2023, the Virginia Department of Health reported a number of startling facts about the state of opioid use in Virginia in 2022:

  • 2,490 total drug overdose deaths
  • 79% of those deaths involved opioids
  • 22,398 emergency department visits due to drug overdose
  • 412 Virginia infants under 1 year old hospitalized with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) due to maternal opioid use

What To Expect From Our Oxycodone Detox Program In Richmond, VA

Oxycodone is a difficult opioid to detox from, so choosing the right detox program is a critical first step on the road to recovery. We’re here to help you through the process. Here’s what you can expect if you decide to try the Coleman Method for Oxycodone Detox:

Getting Started:

Start by calling us at 877-773-3869 or request a callback to receive a call from one of the Care Advocates on our Richmond, VA team. During this call, our Care Advocates will answer any questions you have about our unique approach to Oxycodone detox, and they will also help you choose your treatment dates. Because detox can be finished in as little as 3-8 days. Treatment can usually be started within 1 week – we do not have a waiting list.

Before Your Appointment:

We will ask you to stop using Oxycodone 16 to 48 hours prior to your first appointment, based on guidance from our physicians. We also ask all of our opioid detox patients to have a support person with them who can be present for the duration of detox and for 48 hours after detox is completed. Patients should not drive motor vehicles and should be monitored at all times to ensure safety and comfort.

Your 1st Appointment:

At the time of your first appointment, you will be in mild withdrawal from stopping Oxycodone use 16 to 48 hours before the appointment. One of our experienced, licensed practitioners will be on hand to assess your condition and administer tailored doses of comfort medications to help with withdrawal symptoms. You will also be given micro-dose Naltrexone.

Intermediate Appointments:

The intermediate appointments of your Oxycodone detox are similar to the first appointment. You will continue to receive tailored doses of comfort medications according to your individual needs and you will continue to receive micro-dose Naltrexone.

Final Appointment:

You will have made significant progress toward fully detoxing by the time of your final appointment. At this last appointment, you can rest comfortably in your own private room in our Richmond, VA detox center while the remaining Oxycodone is gently removed from your brain. This process generally takes about 6 to 8 hours, and you will be monitored closely to ensure that you are safe and detox is progressing as it should. At the end of this appointment, detox is complete. You will be given long-acting Naltrexone to help reduce cravings. Many of our patients find that long-acting Naltrexone is just the support they need to start living their new, addiction-free life.


Why The Coleman Institute’s Oxycodone Detox Program – The Fast And Comfortable Option

Most people who attempt to stop using Oxycodone on their own are unable to do so because of the severity of the withdrawal symptoms. They quickly realize that they will most likely need the help of a medical detoxification program to stop using the drug. Here are some common options for detox available in the Richmond, VA area:


Trying to stop Oxycodone without help can be extremely uncomfortable and potentially dangerous. Trying to “go cold turkey” and stop suddenly with no medical supervision can result in serious physical and mental discomfort, and could even be life-threatening. Self-detox usually ends in relapse as the person seeks relief from their withdrawal symptoms. Because of the potential health risks and the high probability of relapse, we do not recommend trying to self-detox from Oxycodone.

Inpatient Detox:

Inpatient detox from Oxycodone requires the patient to stay in a hospital or rehab facility for an extended period of time while addiction specialists monitor the patient’s condition and give them medications to help with withdrawal symptoms. The length of an inpatient rehab stay depends on the patient’s condition, but it can be upwards of 30 days in some cases. Such a long stay in an inpatient rehab program can be very disruptive to the patient’s life and can end up being very expensive.

Ultra Rapid Opioid Detoxification (URD or UROD):

In ultra rapid detox, a hospitalized patient is put under general anesthesia and given large doses of opioid antagonists intravenously to flush the drugs out of their system. This method can work very quickly – drugs can be flushed out in as little as 5 minutes. But it is a very expensive treatment and the health risks could be severe. There have been some reported fatalities after ultra rapid detox. Because of the potential dangers, we have not used this method since 2001.

Methadone or Buprenorphine:

Treatment with Methadone and Buprenorphine can be quite useful for helping people suffering from Oxycodone addiction transition away from Oxycodone and onto a safer legal (when prescribed) alternative. But Methadone and Buprenorphine are still opioids. They can still cause uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms when usage is stopped. Patients will still have to go through the challenge of detoxing from the Methadone or Buprenorphine if and when they want to take the next step and live a life entirely free of addictive substances. Most of our patients who have used Methadone or Buprenorphine have told us that it can be more difficult to detox from them than from other opioids.

Our Outpatient Oxycodone Detox Program:

Our Oxycodone Detox program is an outpatient program that uses a tailored regimen of comfort medications and Naltrexone Therapy to help patients safely in as little as 3-8 days without the costs or risks of other methods of detox and with as little disruption to daily life as possible. We think our 98% completion rate speaks for itself.
