About Waismann Method Opiate Treatment

Founded by renowned addiction specialist Clare Waismann and led by Dr. Michael H. Lowenstein, the nation’s foremost expert in sedation-assisted detoxification, Waismann Method has been a pioneer in opioid dependence treatment since 1998. Our dedicated team consistently achieves unparalleled success rates, solidifying our reputation as the leading authority in rapid detoxification.

Important Alert

Beware of Imitations

We urge you to be cautious of facilities outside Southern California falsely claiming affiliation with or offering the “Waismann Method” created by Clare Waismann M-RAS, SUDCC II, and Michael H. Lowenstein M.D. These deceptive claims aim to exploit our esteemed reputation and can endanger your health and recovery.

Promises to “instantly reset the brain to a pre-addiction state” are medically unfounded and neglect the comprehensive care essential for patient safety, comfort, and successful recovery. Such misleading tactics compromise the integrity of opiate treatment.

The genuine Waismann Method, renowned for its high standards and exceptional effectiveness in detoxification, is exclusively available at our accredited hospital in Southern California. Ensure your safety and recovery by choosing the authentic Waismann Method for your opioid dependence treatment. Accept no substitutes—trust the experts with over 25 years of proven success.

Understanding the complexities of addiction recovery, we stand out by offering individual comprehensive inpatient care that goes beyond the basics. Our approach is built on detailed evaluations, customized treatment plans, and a dedicated focus, making us the benchmark for excellence in drug detoxification services.

Starting your journey to overcoming addiction can feel overwhelming, but choosing the right program for treatment shouldn’t be.  Waismann Method team is here to guide you with unparalleled expertise, compassion, and confidentiality. We’re committed to providing the highest standard of medically assisted opiate detox services, ensuring a transparent, personalized experience from start to finish. Join us on the path to an opioid-free life, supported by the industry’s best.

Opioid Use: A Medical Condition, Not a Moral Failure

We view addiction not as a moral failing but as a medical condition necessitating expert intervention. The cycle of cravings and withdrawal isn’t a question of willpower; it’s a challenge that demands professional support to overcome. Recovery with us is more than a goal; it’s a journey of healing, self-discovery, and rediscovering the joy of living without the weight of addiction.

 Understanding addiction as a medical condition transforms how we approach recovery. It’s not about overcoming weakness but addressing a health issue with compassion and professional care. Our journey is one of healing, growth, and renewed joy in a life freed from opioids.

— Clare Waismann, M-RAS/SUDCC II

How Does the Waismann Method Rapid Detox Work?

Upon reaching out to the Waismann Method, our dedicated opioid treatment specialists immediately engage with you, eager to address your queries and guide you through our range of detoxification programs.

Opting for a confidential consultation with Dr. Michael H. Lowenstein, our esteemed medical director and a foremost authority on rapid detoxification, propels your journey forward. Dr. Lowenstein will present you with an intake questionnaire, which you can effortlessly complete over the phone or via email. This critical step allows us to craft a treatment blueprint tailored to your unique health requirements. We recognize the profound differences in individual health conditions, shaped by diverse environmental and genetic factors, and we prioritize crafting a personalized care approach for each patient.

For those battling opioid use disorder, the imperative of designing bespoke treatment strategies stands paramount. Whether you’re drawn to our sedation-assisted rapid detox or prefer a medically assisted detoxification approach, our commitment lies in addressing each patient’s distinct needs to ensure a safe and effective path to recovery.

As soon as we finalize your admission date, our dedicated team springs into action to streamline your travel arrangements. We extend car transportation services to local patients residing within a 40-mile radius, ensuring a seamless journey directly to our hospital. For our patients coming from further distances, we recommend flying into either Los Angeles Airport (LAX) or John Wayne Airport (SNA). Upon arrival, you’ll be warmly greeted by a representative,  ready to welcome you.

Many patients choose to fly independently, taking full advantage of our all-encompassing inpatient care from the very start of their admission right through to the completion of their post-detox recovery phase. To complete your experience with the same ease it began, we also arrange for your transportation back to the airport, guaranteeing a smooth and stress-free return journey home.

From the moment of admission, our patients are ushered into the serene privacy of their own room within a fully accredited hospital, where they are surrounded by the highest standard of medical care, privacy, and comfort. Each individual undergoes an extensive medical evaluation tailored to their needs, including a detailed cardiac assessment, a carefully planned pre-medication regimen, and measures to ensure their overall stability. Throughout this day we provide short acting opioid medications to prevent any withdrawal symptoms.

Typically, patients spend between 2 to 3 days in the hospital. For those undergoing our rapid detox program, they are transitioned on the second day to a private room in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). Here, patients can rest through the acute withdrawal phase in comfort, under the vigilant care of our medical director and his seasoned team. This rapid detox method not only hastens the detoxification process but also blocks opioid receptors to reduce physical cravings and significantly accelerates both endorphin production and the nervous system’s recovery.

Prior to transitioning to our recovery retreat for continued care, patients are offered the option of receiving a Vivitrol shot, an additional measure to aid in relapse prevention. At the retreat, continuous care is provided, supplemented by supportive medications designed to ease the post-detox adjustment period, ensuring a smooth and comfortable recovery journey.

The critical phase following an accelerated opioid detox under sedation requires nothing less than thorough professional inpatient care. This stage is crucial for tackling the myriad physical and emotional hurdles that can emerge post detoxification. Extended opioid use significantly disturbs hormonal equilibrium, which in turn heightens stress and anxiety levels.

In the vulnerable aftermath of rapid detox, individuals often experience heightened emotional and physical sensitivity. While the support from loved ones is invaluable, it may not be sufficiently informed to effectively navigate the complexities of this critical period. It’s crucial to recognize that a hotel room, lacking professional supervision and care, poses significant risks to someone freshly emerging from opioid detoxification. Such environments are ill-equipped to prevent complications or relapse due to the absence of professional oversight.

Domus Retreat steps in to bridge this gap by offering sustained, comprehensive support aimed at drastically reducing the chances of an immediate relapse. Our team is committed to providing emotional and physical care, helping patients adjust sleep patterns, manage heightened sensitivities, and enhance recovery, alongside a range of other therapeutic interventions.

Our approach is deeply personal, honoring the unique path of recovery each patient walks. Aware of the intricacies involved in addiction treatment and the challenges of achieving lasting sobriety, we firmly oppose the less than responsible or adequate protocols offered by quick one-day detox programs. Instead, we dedicate ourselves to fostering a nurturing, professional, and supportive atmosphere that promotes healing and enduring health.

Exploring Your Options: Medical Opioid Detoxification

Opioid addiction necessitates a level of care and personalized attention beyond what is typically available in standard drug rehabilitation facilities. At the Waismann Method, we emphasize the critical importance of tailoring treatment approaches to meet the specific health needs of each individual patient.

Our team is comprised of highly skilled professionals who hold multiple board certifications, leveraging the most advanced and safest strategies to assist patients in overcoming addiction. We are dedicated to delivering exceptional service at our premier detox center, ensuring patients receive the necessary care and support to attain their wellness goals and break free from the chains of addiction.

As pioneers in the field, we are proud to be the sole providers of the Waismann Method worldwide. For anyone grappling with opioid addiction, we invite you to reach out and discover the unparalleled level of care and support our program offers. Our facilities are equipped to offer a spectrum of services, from rapid drug detox to medically assisted detox without anesthesia, all within the privacy and comfort of our accommodations. Allow us to accompany you on your path to recovery and be a part of your transformative journey towards a new life.


Rapid detox, also known as Sedation-Assisted Detox or Accelerated Opiate Detox, is a medical procedure designed to facilitate drug detoxification while the patient is under sedation, mitigating acute withdrawal symptoms. This advanced method requires execution in a fully accredited hospital environment, overseen by a certified and skilled anesthesiologist.

The advantages of Rapid Detox are manifold: it promotes a quicker production of endorphins, accelerates the recovery of the nervous system, and effectively blocks opioid receptors to eliminate physical withdrawal cravings. However, it’s crucial to acknowledge the risks associated with facilities that offer one-day detox programs to cut costs, a practice we consider both hazardous and negligent.

At the Waismann Method Rapid Detox Center, patient safety and the provision of comprehensive care are our utmost priorities. Our team, comprised of seasoned medical professionals, is committed to delivering unparalleled care to every individual undergoing Rapid Detox.

For those contemplating Rapid Opiate Detox, we invite you to reach out to us. Discover more about our approach and how we can assist you or your loved one in navigating the opiate detoxification process safely and successfully within our supportive and secure setting.


Medically assisted drug detox provides a vital alternative for individuals who may not be suitable candidates for detoxification under anesthesia. This approach involves a stay in a private room within a hospital accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO), ensuring the highest standards of care. Throughout the detoxification process, medical professionals meticulously oversee the patient’s progress, administering medications to ease the central nervous system’s (CNS) response to withdrawal symptoms and diligently monitoring vital signs to ensure safety.

At Waismann Treatment™, we recognize the distinct challenges faced by individuals with pre-existing medical conditions undergoing drug detoxification. Our medically assisted detox program is meticulously customized to meet the specific needs of each patient, ensuring a safe and comfortable journey to opioid freedom.

Waismann Method Treatment: The Premier Medical Solution for Overcoming Opioid Use Disorder

In the face of addiction’s complex nature, the simplistic notion of willpower alone driving recovery has been rightfully challenged. While some individuals may find the inner strength to quit without medical intervention, many others face overwhelming physical and emotional withdrawal symptoms, making their journey to recovery immensely difficult. This is where the Waismann Method emerges as a beacon of hope, offering a compassionate, medically sound, and scientifically grounded approach to those struggling with addiction or dependence. Our proven track record of success and unwavering commitment to patient well-being sets us apart.

Waismann Method has decades  of experience integrating a sincere devotion to improving health and assuring safety in a private and comfortable environment. While we have concentrated our efforts in one single location, we offer substance use disorder detox programs to patients nationwide. Our purpose is to heal, restore, and guide our patients to a path of healthy living by integrating the latest and most effective forms of treatments for opioid use disorder. Over the years, our patients have achieved nearly 100% detox success.

Choosing a JCAHO-accredited hospital for medical detoxification ensures the highest standard of care for individuals dealing with substance use disorders. This accreditation is a testament to a facility’s commitment to excellence in patient safety, care quality, and continuous performance improvement.

Opting for a private room within such a hospital further enhances the detoxification process by providing a secure, supportive, and personalized healing environment. These private spaces offer the advantage of one-on-one medical attention, allowing for a detox plan that is meticulously tailored to meet each patient’s unique needs. The combination of JCAHO accreditation and the provision of private rooms underscores a superior approach to medical detoxification, emphasizing safety, privacy, and individualized care as the pillars of a successful recovery journey.

Inpatient post-detox care crucially offers patients the opportunity to gain strength and achieve stability before re-engaging with loved ones and facing a world filled with potential triggers. This period of care aids in the physiological and emotional adjustment post-detox, helping to manage any residual withdrawal symptoms, anxiety, and hormonal imbalances. It also establishes a therapeutic environment for facilitating a smoother transition to the complexities of daily life. By providing a supportive and structured setting, inpatient post-detox care ensures patients are better prepared, both mentally and physically, to navigate the challenges of recovery and prevent relapse.
