The Waismann Method® team celebrates two successful decades of helping thousands of patients achieve freedom from opioid and alcohol dependence.
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., January 28, 2019,/PRNewswire-PR Web/ — Waismann Method® Advanced Treatment for Opiate Dependence is proud to announce its 20th year providing unparalleled success in opioid detoxification treatment. Located in Southern California, Waismann Method® offers anesthesia-assisted detox and medically assisted (non-anesthesia) detox to patients struggling with opioid use disorder and alcohol dependence.
World-renowned as one of the pioneers of rapid detox treatment for opioid dependence, Waismann Method® has continued to develop better, safer, and additional medical protocols to assist patients in overcoming the withdrawal of several abused substances, including very high dosages of methadone, Suboxone, oxycodone and all opioids.
“Waismann Method® is for those seeking a higher level of care and for those for whom the revolving doors of rehabs and replacement opioids make no sense,” said founder Clare Waismann, certified addiction treatment counselor. “But more importantly, we are proud to provide the best option for those who want to safely, quickly, and effectively put opioid dependence behind them. A successful and complete detox allows patients to work on improving their emotional and physical health without the harmful effects of dependence and abuse.”
Providing care in a private room at a JCAHO-accredited hospital, the team tailors each treatment to each patient’s unique physical and emotional needs. To complement the comprehensive detox treatment, Waismann Method® created Domus Retreat. Domus is a private recovery center designed to provide the emotional and physical support necessary to help each individual safely gain the strength and stability needed to navigate this transitional phase successfully. This additional recovery period also provides the patient with the support needed to achieve a sense of clarity and identify the appropriate next steps on their path to sustain a healthier life free from opioid or alcohol dependence.
Waismann Method® Advocates for Increased Focus on the Patient, Not the Addiction
As it looks forward to another 20 years, Waismann Method® continues in its mission to provide effective medical detox solutions to end drug dependence. It also continues to educate the public about medical detox treatment options and advocate for increased awareness of the issues that often lead patients to substance abuse. When dependence is adequately reversed, addiction is often prevented.
“Until people understand that addiction is a consequence, and not the cause, progress is limited. Dependence is a medical condition that needs to be treated by doctors. More importantly, until we really start focusing on the issue of poor mental health care, people will keep dying,” said Waismann. “Drug rehabs often focus on the addiction exclusively, and consequently, people continue to feel unheard, unseen, and depressed, which leads to more drug use. It’s a disastrous cycle that we’re committed to helping end with real solutions and care.”
