Outpatient Accelerated Opioid Detox Treatment

Why Choose Accelerated Opioid Detox?

Opioids can cause dependency or addiction after just a few uses and withdrawal can be a miserable experience, which is why patients are often unsuccessful at self-detoxing. That’s why we’ve developed the Coleman Method – a more comfortable, outpatient detox program that has a 98% completion rate and can be finished in as little as 3 days.

If you or a loved one are suffering from opioid addiction, it’s important to remember: You are not alone. Opioid addiction has developed a stigma and is often seen as a sign of weakness, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. At the Coleman Institute, we know that opioid addiction is a chronic disease, and we treat it as such.


How Does the Coleman Method For Accelerated Opioid Detox Work?

Our Accelerated Opioid Detox using the Coleman Method removes the opioids from your brain in the fastest, most comfortable way possible. Rather than the typical 10 days you’d spend self-detoxing, the Coleman Method detoxification process takes as little as 3 days, and most importantly, it’s a much safer option.

With the Coleman Method, in just a few days you can rid your body of opioids and be ready to reclaim control over your life. Because this outpatient treatment only takes a few days, there’s very little disruption to your life. Plus, you won’t face the discomfort that causes many people to relapse after a few days when they go it alone.


Opioid Use Disorder

How Does Opioid Use Become an Addiction?

Some people started using opioids simply because they were curious. Other people started on opioids because their doctor prescribed them for legitimate pain conditions, and they likely took the medicine just as prescribed. It doesn’t take long to become physically dependent on opioids and, in truth, it doesn’t matter how people originally develop a dependence on or addiction to opioids—the result is the same. Having to take opioids, whether prescribed drugs or street drugs, simply to function and feel normal is devastating, and it can feel like an endless doom loop until they get help.

What Are The Signs Of Opioid Addiction?

Addiction is a serious disease that impacts the brain, body, and soul. And like many diseases, Opioid Use Disorder can be treated. Just as you can see the signs of a cold, there are signs of opioid addiction to be aware of:

  • Change in hygiene or personal appearance
  • Injuries related to falls or fights
  • Behavioral changes and moodiness
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Irritability or agitation
  • Lack of personal hygiene or concern for appearance
  • Inability to fulfill personal responsibility
  • Disrupted sleep patterns
  • Slurred speech
  • Itchy, flushed skin
  • Constricted pupils


Opioid Detoxification Process: What To Expect

The Coleman Method for opioid detox is a safer, faster and more comfortable process. This method limits the pain associated with withdrawal and can be completed in as few as 3 days so you can reclaim your life with little disruption to your day-to-day responsibilities.

An Accelerated Opioid Detox at the Coleman Institute starts by asking patients to stop taking their opioids 16-48 hours before their first scheduled appointment, based on guidance from our physician.

Day 1 of Detoxing Off Of Opioids
During the initial phase of opioid withdrawal, patients may experience mild discomfort. To alleviate these symptoms, a qualified healthcare professional will prescribe a tailored set of comfort medications. In addition, a small amount of Naltrexone is administered to speed up the healing process.

Intermediate Day(s)
The intermediate days of an opioid detox are comparable to the first day in that patients will continue to receive comfort medications around the clock. Dosages will be tailored to the individual’s needs to ensure maximum comfort. Once again, micro-dose Naltrexone is used to support the detoxification process.

Final Day of Detoxing Off Of Opioids
By the final day of the detox, patients have made considerable progress. While they rest in a bed in our office, any remaining opioids in the patient’s brain are gently removed over a period of six to eight hours. Following the completion of the detox, patients receive long-acting Naltrexone, and can leave the facility with the assurance that all opioids have been removed from their system. Naltrexone helps reduce cravings and the risk of relapse.

Facts About Opioids

The impact of the opioid epidemic on American society and the economy is huge. It has caused enormous suffering, overdoses, deaths, broken families, and emotional distress in those suffering from Substance Use Disorder —and their loved ones— across the country. The toll of America’s opioid crisis is devastating:

  • According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, 130 Americans die from overdosing on opioids daily.
  • In 2017, there were 70,237 drug overdose deaths, of which 47,600 (67.8%) involved opioids
  • 11.1 million people aged 12 or older misused prescription pain relievers in the past year.
  • 3 out of 4 people who used heroin in the past year misused prescription opioids first.
  • Approximately 2.1 million people have been diagnosed with Opioid Use Disorder (OUD).

What Are The Symptoms Of Opioid Withdrawal?

Most people cannot stop using opioids without a severe withdrawal reaction. This occurs because escalating doses of opioids change how parts of the brain function over time, creating both tolerance and dependence. Without opioids present in the brain, people experience symptoms that are opposite of the pleasurable sensation they had when they first tried opioids. Managing these withdrawal symptoms without professional medical assistance can be difficult and painful. Common opioid withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Soreness and body aches
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Fatigue
  • Fever and sweating

Many people worry about how to manage withdrawal symptoms when they stop taking opioids. As a leading addiction treatment provider, one of our top priorities during a detox is to help patients manage any withdrawal symptoms that might appear. Over the past 25 years, we have developed a customized set of comfort medications and expertise in using them to quickly address any symptoms that might emerge.

We also encourage patients to engage in self-care practices like staying hydrated, getting plenty of rest, and practicing mindfulness meditation. Additionally, emotional support from a support person or family can help patients feel empowered and motivated to continue their path toward recovery.
