Leader in Opiate Detoxification Announces First-Ever Price Reduction for Pioneering Treatment to Prescription Painkiller Dependency in Conjunction with National Drug Take-Back Programs
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (October 13, 2010) – In support of recent and upcoming national drug take-back programs encouraging people to surrender unused, unwanted and expired medications, the medical professionals who perform the Waismann Method of Opiate Detoxification today announced they will reduce the total cost of the pioneering rapid detoxification treatment in an effort to make treatment more widely available to those suffering from prescription painkiller dependency. Beginning October 15, the Waismann Method will lower the cost of treatment by approximately 10 percent, offering more patients a chance at recovery. Individuals will have the opportunity to take advantage of this reduced rate from October 15 – 30.
With recent reports revealing prescription drug abuse and accidental overdoses have from drugs like OxyContin continued to increase at a rapid pace, the Waismann Method remains committed to helping people fight prescription painkiller dependency by raising awareness of the potential dangers of such drugs. Furthermore, the Waismann Method supports and encourages individuals, family members, friends and loved ones to take part in an upcoming event, The American Medicine Chest Challenge, which will take place on November 13.
The American Medicine Chest Challenge is a community-based public health initiative sponsored by The Partnership for a Drug-Free America, whose mission to increase awareness aligns with that of the Waismann Method. This one-day program will allow people to surrender their unused, unwanted and expired medications at drop-off locations in communities across the country.
Dr. Michael Lowenstein, co-director of the Waismann Method and a board-certified expert in addiction medicine, pain medicine and anesthesiology says, “The surge in drug take-back programs certainly speaks to the potential dangers posed by the accessibility of prescription medications, which has consequently contributed to the increase of abuse throughout the nation. The Waismann Method is dedicated to helping those who are dependent on prescription painkillers and strongly encourages Americans to partake in local programs that promote the safe disposal of medication in an effort to reduce the number of accidental overdoses, among other dangers.”
Dr. Lowenstein has been performing the Waismann Method of Opiate Treatment for over a decade, successfully ridding thousands of patients of opiate dependency through a medical detoxification procedure that provides an alternative option for treatment to prescription painkiller dependency. Performed in a hospital intensive care unit, the Waismann Method of Opiate Detoxification utilizes careful administration of medications to reverse the physiological dependence on opiates while the symptoms of withdrawal are addressed.
