Unless you just happened to stumble upon us at random, you came to this site for one reason – to learn more about what options the Waismann Method Treatment Center offers for opiate dependence and addiction.

For almost two decades the Waismann Method®,  has been recognized as one of the premier opiate treatment centers in the country, specializing in rapid opiate detox under sedation, and utilizing the most advanced medical techniques to treat opiate dependence. Located only in Southern California, Waismann Method® offers a variety of hospital based inpatient procedures and programs, from anesthesia assisted rapid opiate detox, to modified medical opiate detoxification methods in conjunction with our exclusive post care facility, Domus Retreat Recovery Center.

Domus Retreat is an intimate recovery center build exclusively to provide customized treatments based on an in-depth understanding of each individual.  What’s so unique about Domus Retreat is that no two programs are the same, because no two individuals are the same. We believe in treating the individual instead of the symptom, in order to successfully conquer opiate dependency.

We have integrated a variety of alternative therapies to help support physical and emotional recovery, including individual psychotherapy neuro-feedback, yoga, massage, and acupuncture.

After successfully helping thousands of patients overcome opiate addiction, we understand that one of the reasons relapse rate is so high with traditional detox programs, is because dependence is often viewed as the problem, rather than a symptom or coping mechanism.

The Waismann Method and Domus Retreat team, is wholeheartedly committed in doing our part by treating each and every patient with respect and understanding. Our staff is a diverse and committed group who understands the importance of creating and nurturing a responsive culture and our goal has been to provide the most comprehensive, safe and dignified opiate detoxification and treatment available.

Waismann Method® detox treatment has one of the highest success rate in the industry, treating opiate addiction from drugs as Fentanyl, Heroin, Hydrocodone, Methadone, Oxycodone, Percocet, Suboxone (Subutex) and Tramadol.
