Don’t Delay Treatment. Speak with our Addiction and Rapid Detox Specialists Today!

Comprehensive and private drug detox is the first step in a successful recovery. An inpatient medical detox can prevent unpleasant withdrawal symptoms or dangerous consequences resulting from a sudden opioid cessation. The goal of medical drug detox is the physiological stabilization and support as the body rids itself of opioid drugs or alcohol. Addiction Specialist Doctors can help you get through the unpleasant withdrawal symptoms while managing vital signs and physiological response. Relieving the discomfort of drug and alcohol withdrawal symptoms is an integral part of relapse prevention. Many people who try to detox on their own never make through complete detoxification. Instead, they relapse and feel hopeless. The Waismann Method® offers a safe, humane and effective way to become alcohol and opioid-free.
