About Clare Waismann, M-RAS / SUDCC II

Clare Waismann, a distinguished Registered Addiction Specialist (M-RAS) and Substance Use Disorder Certified Counselor (SUDCC II), stands at the forefront of opiate dependence treatment. As the founder of the Waismann Method® and Domus Retreat, her expertise spans nearly three decades, revolutionizing the approach to addiction and mental health.

A Visionary in Addiction Science and Treatment

Clare Waismann’s odyssey through the realm of mental health science is marked by an intrinsic fascination and an unyielding dedication to unraveling the intricate layers of addiction.

Her words resonate with experience and insight: 

“Embarking on this path with mere curiosity, my journey has been enriched and deepened by relentless study and immersive, hands-on experience. This pursuit has led me to a profound comprehension of addiction’s diverse and complex characteristics. I’ve come to realize that the essence of efficacious treatment is not just in the accumulation of knowledge or adherence to professional standards, but also in the infusion of heartfelt compassion.

In our quest to heal, there is absolutely no space for the shadows of stigma or the weight of judgment.” This reflection captures the essence of Clare Waismann’s visionary approach in the field of addiction treatment.

“The idea that people see addiction as a moral failing has maintained its victims scorned, discriminated, and punished by society. This stigmatization and misunderstanding of substance abuse and mental illness have been harmful and often lethal to so many. We have the science and the resources to treat these conditions, so all we need is to replace judgment and stigma with education and compassion.”
