Opioid Addiction Treatment Options

Rapid Detox (Sedation Assisted Detox)

A rapid detox is a form of medically assisted opioid detoxification while the patient is under sedation. This type of treatment, also known as anesthesia detox or ultra-rapid opiate detox, should only be performed in an accredited hospital and an experienced board-certified anesthesiologist.

Among all the best rapid drug detox centers globally, Waismann Method® is undoubtedly the most recognized. Thousands of patients worldwide, including athletes and celebrities, have successfully completed the program. When patients undergo rapid detox in a reputable center, the detoxification is safe, quick, and incredibly effective.

Medically-Assisted Detox Without Anesthesia

We offer medically assisted opiate detox treatment protocols for those not candidates for rapid detox or who do not wish to be under sedation or anesthesia. When rapid detoxification is not an option, we offer other medically assisted detox methods, and these protocols are often as comfortable and as successful as rapid detox itself.
If rapid detox is not for you, you can learn more about alternative opioid detox treatment options.

Heroin and Fentanyl Detox Treatment

Many people who become dependent on heroin, fentanyl, or other opiates feel like there is no hope for recovery, but that is not true. The medical community is continuously making strides in the addiction treatment field. One of the most advanced forms of detoxification for heroin and fentanyl is rapid detox. Detoxing under anesthesia allows people to be entirely off opioids. Being off opiates will enable people to be emotionally present to receive mental health diagnoses and care. Learn more about available treatment options – withdrawal symptomsheroin detoxification, and heroin rapid detox.

Prescription Opioid Detox

We understand the risk of long-term intake of prescription painkillers, and we also know that the sudden discontinuation of these drugs is a painful and arduous process. For that reason, we offer those suffering from addiction to prescription painkillers a much safer, more effective, and more comfortable way to come off opioids. Read more about the best treatment options to end prescription drug dependence.

Buprenorphine and MAT Detox

Although Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) has become the standard of care for many rehabs, many people cannot independently come off drugs like buprenorphine. We often receive calls from people seeking professional help trying to come off medications for addiction treatment. Waismann Method® advanced rapid detox protocols provide patients with a quick and effective solution to overcome withdrawal from buprenorphine-based drugs. Learn more about the best way to stop all MAT drugs and become opioid-free.

Methadone Detox Treatment

Methadone is an incredibly tricky opioid narcotic to detox from, even more, challenging than heroin or prescription opiates. One of the most successful forms of detoxification for this drug is Rapid Methadone Detox. Our rapid detox has helped thousands of patients dramatically reduce the time and discomfort associated with methadone withdrawal. From all the patients we treated in the last two decades, the ones that benefit the most from detoxification under anesthesia are those suffering from Methadone addiction.
