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.

  1. Mario G Labarbera on

    I went to the Coleman institute in Illinois.
    I am glad that it worked of course.
    Although, I can’t believe how much money it cost for care at that facility because the bed I was in was a worn out pullout couch bed.
    Some of the staff was horrible in how they treated me and my caregiver as well as possibly lacking the proper training.
    I was told that I would be kept comfortable through it which was a blatant lie.
    I was there for my treatment a year and a half ago and am still completely clear of opiates.
    I love the freedom of not being stuck taking pain medications.
    I didn’t get the injection or implant after the rapid detox and I didn’t want to take opiates afterwards anymore anyway.
    I can’t imagine ever having to use them ever again.
    Was hoping that Dr. Coleman might see this.

  2. Why …..why is it so difficult to seek answers for a real friend with out every body just”knowing” its “you”??? It’s nearly impossible to request information on & for some”Friend without.!!! And why ???!!!?!? If the”Coleman institute” is (&it truly is! ) So helpful, and concerned about some that they have NO alternative solution for payment?!?? I have to be absolutely honest though! I can’t find any better program in the the entire world!
    But really, is this only to allow only those who can afford or those who have great insurance? (Which most can’t!…not ” choose not to have”
    The person i dearly want to experience real Freedom before they die… Has helped literally”hundreds & “hundreds of people in the loosing dimension of this exsistance. Yet no one seems to care how many they’ve sacrificed to help. No ONE… I realize that it costs $$$$$ to merely operate…. But please .. they LOST SO MUCH MORE THAN EVERYTHING! ISN’T there any hope for them except Death?
    You are an institution that began because you were looking for a more acceptable way to help….then you became big. And so you should!!!!!! But isn’t there any possibility of hope for my friend?
    Regardless….thank you for your kindness & help for so very many of the”scum” who deserve it.’. I truly know your not lime this. I have someone over my shoulder.
    Thank you
