About The Coleman Institute
Since 1998, The Coleman Institute has been helping patients with addiction on their road to recovery. The Coleman Institute, under the direction of Dr. Peter Coleman, has developed a suite of unique outpatient treatments that help people detoxify and stabilize from the effects of opiates (heroin, Methadone, Suboxone, OxyContin, etc.), alcohol and benzodiazepines. These accelerated, outpatient detox treatments can be completed in as little as 3 days and have achieved remarkable results with successful completion rates of 98+%. For more information, including the network of offices across the United States, visit www.thecolemaninstitute.com.

IWINS is a non-profit initiative aimed at educating students, parents and their communities on the highly addictive nature of prescription drugs. The program teaches that using opiates, like prescription drugs and heroin, just once, can lead to an addiction that is almost impossible to overcome. IWINS shares individual stories of patients who have experienced opiate addiction first-hand. Through these stories, IWINS is changing the perception of just how dangerous opiates can be to young adults and children. For more information, visit www.iwishineverstarted.org.
