If you missed part 2, you could read how Dr. Peter Coleman formulated The Coleman Method during the opioid crisis in the ’90s here.
Explore the recap of Dr. Peter Coleman’s YouTube video, “Dr. B interviews Dr. Coleman about the Coleman Method for Opioid Detox and Naltrexone MAT” here.
Dr. Banimahd and the Coleman Institute
I do want to mention how I started working with Dr. Coleman.
If you didn’t know, I work in Orange County. I believe that the treatment industry here could be better.
I am in a bubble, it feels like. I don’t work with anyone else, whether it is detox programs, facilities, or doctors.
When I was first approached, it was by a business contact or associate of Dr. Colemans. They sent me a few emails or called a few times, and I just ignored them at first.
Dr. Peter Coleman
Yes, that was us trying to reach out.
I had just left the university, and I was turned off what I was seeing.
But then you called me, and we finally connected. You wanted to meet up, so I was like, “okay, let’s meet up.”
Your professionalism impressed me. You were so knowledgeable and had such integrity. You brought Gene and Andrew with you.
Until then, I had “blinders” on.
We’ll get into Suboxone and maintenance treatment in a minute.
I was pleased we went forward with our relationship. I was so impressed with the Coleman Network for Addiction Medicine.
Patient Selection for The Coleman Method
Okay, let’s talk about patient selection.
Dr. Peter Coleman
I have some thoughts on it, based on my own experience.
I mentioned that the Coleman Network for Addiction Medicine pushed this medication-assisted treatment (MAT). The SAMSHA, the head honcho on all of these issues, called naltrexone medication-assisted treatment (MAT).
What are your thoughts on this?
