Clare Waismann, CATC, is a Certified Addiction Treatment Counselor and the Founder of the Waismann Method of Advanced Treatment of Opiate Dependence and Domus Retreat. Clare has been advocate for over two decades, about the unfair stigma and negative preconceived ideas associated with addiction and mental illness.

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 has been harmful and often lethal to so many. We have the science and the resources to treat these conditions; all we need is to replace judgment and stigma with education and compassion.
