Clare Waismann – Registered Addiction Specialist (M-RAS), Substance Use Disorder Certified Counselor (SUDCC II), Founder of the Waismann Method® of Advanced Treatment of Opiate Dependence and Domus Retreat.
For over two decades, Clare has advocated against the unfair stigma and negative preconceived ideas associated with addiction and mental illness.
“I have always been extremely interested in the science surrounding mental health. Although I did not quite understand the depth and heartbreaks of addiction in my early days, after almost a quarter of a century of study, training, and hands-on experience, I am humbled by realizing the multiple dimensions of this condition. Although there is no single or simple solution, there are many useful resources and excellent results. I also learned that knowledge, professionalism, and compassion are necessary tools health care workers must possess. There is no place for stigma, judgment, or arrogance.
Above all, I strive to provide a safe space for those seeking help, where concerns are heard and evaluated. Also, where individual needs are carefully and respectfully examined. A place where treatment options are decided purely on patients’ needs and not on preset protocols that benefit the program more than the patient. I want the patient to have a meaningful experience. One that will help them choose a healthier path.
I act with others in a way that aligns with my values. My desire to be in healthcare was never misguided, but maybe a little naïve. I have since broadened my understanding of people’s needs, strengths, and difficulties. My purpose hasn’t changed, and I continue to strive to help people live healthier and happier lives.” – Clare Waismann.
“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.”
Waismann Method® is named after its founder Clare Waismann. Mrs. Waismann is a Substance Use Disorder Certified Counselor and Registered Addiction Specialists. Her goal is to provide patients suffering from Opioid Use disorder the most effective detoxification without preconceived ideas or protocols. Instead, health care professionals implement the most appropriate treatment based on each patient’s unique needs.
For over 23 years, we have provided opioid users with the highest level of individual treatment available. I put together the best team of professionals, including a quadruple board-certified medical director, so that patients could receive comprehensive, safe, and effective opioid treatment.
Our medically assisted detoxification protocols take place in a private room of an accredited hospital. The goal is to offer the safest, most effective, and humane way of overcoming an opioid withdrawal. Although we are world-renowned for offering the safest and most effective rapid detox procedure in the nation, detox under sedation is only part of what we provide. We believe that just providing detox does not suffice. After detoxification, patients often experience a drastic physical and emotional regulation period. Having professional assistance during this fragile period is crucial for patients’ safety and treatment success.
Therefore, I created a recovery center where people receive the professional attention and care needed throughout this transitional period. Patients are often emotionally and physically vulnerable after an opioid detox, so counseling and professional support are essential to achieving essential stability before returning home.
