The Coleman Institute is advertised as an Opiate drug rehab clinic. They charged me $4675.00 and they do not take insurance. The first day I was there I waited 2 hours only to be given a hand full of prescriptions to be filled and given a portable blood pressure machine. I was told to go back to my motel room and take my meds. You would think for the price they charged they would supply all the medication.I started taking the meds as soon as I got back to my motel room. Two hours later I was extremly over medicated. My wife could hardly work the blood pressure machine and she was very concerned about my safety. I was later told by another professional that I should have been in a hospital under professional care, not in a hotel room with my wife and a toy blood pressure machine.The next day I reported back to the clinic only to meet other people waiting outside the door. There was no one there yet. We waited almost an hour. Finally someone showed up and let us in. Once in we were lead to a cot with an IV next to it. The entire office suite was turned into what looked like a MASH unit. Cots and IVs everywhere. I was put on a very old cot and hooked up to an IV of their detox solution. About 2 hours later someone came to check on me. Not only did they never take my blood pressure but when they checked the IV it had a kink in it and it turns out I got very little of the solution. Terrible care!!After I finally got 3/4 of the IV solution I was taken to an exam room where they surgically implanted a Naltrexone pellet. This pellet is suppose to replace the opiates and take away your cravings. Had I fully understood this I would have chosen Suboxone but I was not looking to replace one drug with another. The pellet did not even work in my opinion. Then I was informed that I could spend more of my money coming back every few months to get additional implants. This is not a cure. It is an assembly line that will just drain your pockets.I feel that The Coleman Institute just feeds on desperate people looking for a fast cure. The care was unprofessional at best. I finally went to an addiction doctor who put me in the hospital and had me detoxed in 5 -7 days in a comfortable and professional setting. Another great source of info can be gotten from a great fellowship called NA.A final note. Beware of pellets that cure all drug addictions especially Alcohol. Also, I had this treatment in 2009. I have heard that they have better facilities now from all the money they charge but the useless treatment has not changed.
