The Coleman Institute


The Coleman InstituteThe Basics

The Coleman Institute is an accelerated outpatient detox program founded in 1998 by Dr. Peter Coleman. With multiple locations in major cities across the country, The Coleman Institute detoxes and stabilizes clients addicted to opiates and alcohol. Its Richmond, Virginia office is owned and operated by Dr. Coleman. All other locations are independently owned and operated.

Treatment and Staff

The Coleman Institute’s detox is three to eight days long. It’s best known for an accelerated detox for all forms of substance abuse and dependency including opiates, heroin, pain medications, alcohol and even the withdrawal medicine commonly used in Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT): methadone and Suboxone. A client must be must be off narcotics for eight to 16 hours before detox treatment begins. For three consecutive days, clients visit the office daily to receive sedatives and medicine to relieve the pain of withdrawal. On the final day, clients received an IV course of “narcotic antagonists” for a six to eight hour period that flushes opiates from their bodies. After the detox is complete, clients begin a course of Naltrexone as either a dissolvable implant or injection. The implant is placed under the fatty part of abdomen and lasts for two months. Clients are recommended to visit the office for a new course of treatments for up to one year.

Throughout its locations, Coleman Institute treats hundreds of clients and each office is staffed with a medical doctor and several nurses and NPs.


The Coleman Institute partners with outside treatment programs and facilities across the country to treat clients after detox. Clients receive an individualized treatment plan that provides aftercare resources for further residential, outpatient and dual diagnosis treatment.

In Summary

The Coleman Institute is an accelerated medical detox outpatient program that requires daily office visits and monitoring for three to eight days. It is a program best suited for clients looking to avoid painful withdrawal symptoms and who are comfortable with long-term medical therapy after treatment. Though it specializes in accelerated detox, The Coleman Institute sets up clients to achieve long-term sobriety by tailoring an individualized aftercare program.
