Frequently Asked Questions Regarding the Waismann Method

Q: We often hear patients say they would like to receive the Waismann Method rapid detox treatment, but cannot afford it.
A: We believe that responsible and proper medical care is priceless, and people can’t afford to NOT have the most comprehensive and safe method of rapid detoxification available. An individual who cannot afford proper hospital care should look at other options for medical detoxification that have a slower pace. However, when patients do undergo rapid detox, it should be done responsibly, with adequate inpatient care and in the proper facility that can provide needed medical resources.
Q: Where should the rapid detox be performed?
A: Procedures like rapid detox should be performed in an intensive care unit of a full-service hospital. The Joint Commission, an independent, not-for-profit organization recognized nationally for accrediting hospitals that meet specific standards, takes every possible precaution to ensure patient safety and access to vital medical resources if needed. The hospital where we perform Waismann Method rapid detox treatment is JCAHO accredited, and there’s access to a number of additional medical specialists and resources. We often consult with other in-house specialists in order to provide the safest and most effective treatment to our patients.
Q: How long before rapid detox should a patient be an inpatient in a hospital?
A: There is no set rule because each patient has a unique background and medical history. Factors medical staff must consider, include age, medical conditions, the drug of choice, length of drug intake and psychological makeup.
Stabilizing blood pressure, heart rate and assessing essential organ status, is crucial for the safety and success of the procedure. Patients receive medications to prevent or relieve the symptoms of withdrawal. Also, patients receive medications to lower the acid content of the stomach and to curb the adrenaline or adrenergic response to withdrawal.
With W Method treatment, patients are inpatients in an accredited hospital a minimum of one day before anesthesia-assisted rapid detox. Some patients may require several days of inpatient screening and pre-medication before the procedure. The patient’s medical and dependency history will determine the length of the stay. On numerous occasions, we’ve uncovered medical issues that patients were not aware of and will offer other methods of medical detoxification that can better treat their condition while maintaining their comfort, well-being, and safety.

Q: Who should perform the detoxification?

A: A Board Certified anesthesiologist with extensive experience in anesthesia detoxification, is the best choice to perform rapid detoxification. This process requires sedation combined with antagonist medications and other treatments to achieve safe and comfortable opiate detoxification. The combination and amount of these medicines are the core factors to making the process successful and secure.
To accomplish this level of success, W Method doctors have performed thousands of procedures with patients from all over the world seeking their knowledge of almost two decades and unparalleled achievement.
Things to consider when evaluating “the treating doctor”:

  • Graduating School
  • Specialization
  • Board Certification(s)
  • Experience in Rapid Detox
  • Credentials of Facility Chosen To Perform Rapid Detox
  • Length of Time One Remains Inpatient Under Doctors Full Responsibility

Q: When should patients be discharged after rapid detoxification?

A: It is critical to the safety and success of the detoxification that the patient is appropriately assessed and managed after the detoxification, as the body is going through an extensive transition. The essential organs are trying to find their baseline, and functions like blood pressure, heart rate, body temperature, fluid absorption, and brain chemistry are trying to regulate. Sometimes this process is smooth, but other times the body finds difficulties in self-regulating. Sometimes issues as simple as continuous diarrhea and vomiting can progress to dehydration, lack of potassium or even heart failure due to the lack of medical care. We can medically assess and treat most of these difficulties, usually without any further complications.

In cases where patients are discharged immediately after rapid anesthesia detox to hotel rooms, some minor conditions could become major medical issues, causing unnecessary suffering and risk to patients.

After such rapid physical and mental transitions, patients need proper professional support. As much as families and friends may want to help, they are just not trained to do so. Patients’ feelings of cravings, fear, and anxiety can lead to fights and emotional outbursts, which can drive patients into immediate relapse.

Q: What about after-care following rapid detox?

A: After many years performing rapid detox, we understood the invaluable need of immediate post-care; therefore we created an exclusive recovery center for our patients. Domus Retreat is an all-inclusive sanctuary, where we treat each individual based on their unique needs. Also, we never force guests to complete chores or participate in cookie-cutter treatments. The goal of the retreat is for guests to regain physical and mental stability to go back to their reality. Many guests only require a few days’ stay post-treatment; however, with guests that need to work with their pain management, depression, anxiety, trauma, etc., longer-term options are available.
Opiate dependency causes numerous changes in brain chemistry and organ functions. After the procedure, it is paramount that patients have proper monitoring for at least a few days to regulate basic functions, prevent medical complications and immediate relapse.
Domus staff evaluate each guest’s situation, rather than forcing them into a new lifestyle that will not be part of their reality.  Instead of breaking guests down, we support and bring them self-confidence and strength from where they are. We supply them with a loving, caring and constructive environment without any pre-conceived judgments.
If patient well-being is a priority and rapid detox safety is a concern, Waismann Method should be your answer. For more information on our exclusive benefits call today at 310-205-0808 and learn more about what we provide.
