Can someone tell me about this? My ex-wife and mother of my son is finally going for help at a place called www.thecolemaninstitute.com They will be sedating her for a portion of her detox and using other medications like ultram and valium for an accelerated detox. The Naltrexone will be implanted into her hip so that she is unable to skip a dose. This is for the treatment of a serious opiate/heroin/methadone addiction. Anyone know someone that has taken such a treatment? Supposedly the ultram will be blocking the receptors and weening the subject off of the opiates at a dramatic pace. Its said to be quite painful and I'm just wondering exactly how bad it will be. She is trying to tell me there is a 50/50 chance of her dying and I'm not so sure thats true.
