By blocking opiate receptor sites, Naltrexone helps to prevent relapse by inhibiting patients from experiencing any euphoric effect of opiates. Dr. Coleman pioneered the Naltrexone implant, a small, dissolvable pellet inserted into the lower abdomen which protects patients for a period of two months. We work collaboratively with our patients to better understand their psycho-social backgrounds, experiences of trauma, and addiction history in order to support them in determining a clinically appropriate and comprehensive aftercare treatment plan. We are passionate about helping our patients begin their journey to long- term recovery.
