More About the Official Waismann Method®

We pioneered our unique approach to rapid detox more than 20 years ago. In the last two decades, we have advanced rapid detox techniques, expanded medical detox treatment offerings to include alcohol detox, and continued to maintain the highest detox success rate in the U.S.

As the official Waismann Method®, we are the exclusive provider of the Waismann Method approach to detox and recovery care. Our specialists do not train others on our method, and we treat patients solely at our private, accredited hospital and recovery center in Southern California. No other professionals, treatment centers or websites claiming to offer “the Waismann method” are affiliated with us, and they do not offer what we do.

We are able to maintain our high rate of successful detox treatments and our superior level of medical care by dedicating our resources and quality assurance oversight to our exclusive Southern California location and team of specialists. Our focus is always on our patients and tailoring our medical protocols to each individual’s needs to ensure their safety and success. We do not deviate from our exclusive practice or mission. Do not settle for an imitator of the official Waismann Method®. You deserve exceptional care, and we are here for you.

What Is Waismann Method® and How Does the Treatment Work?

Under the leadership of medical director Dr. Michael H. Lowenstein, Waismann Method® has been a pioneer in advancing medical opiate detoxification and rapid detox treatments. Dr. Lowenstein is quadruple board certified and has successfully treated opioid-dependent patients over the length of his career. He has 20 years of experience performing successful anesthesia-assisted rapid detox.

Our physicians and staff are committed not only to detoxification success but also to patient safety and comfort. We strive to ensure the highest level of professional services in our standard of care. “Our commitment to providing superior results for opiate-dependent patients is just as strong today as it was two decades ago,” said Waismann Method founder Clare Waismann, CATC.

Anesthesia-Assisted Rapid Opioid Detox Treatment

Anesthesia-assisted rapid detox is an opioid use disorder treatment that uses a combination of intravenous medications to shorten the duration and discomfort of an acute opiate withdrawal. The opioid treatment method usually takes about 30 to 90 minutes, whereas other traditional forms of opioid detox can last several days or weeks.

While under sedation, the patient does not experience many of the painful withdrawal symptoms common in traditional detox programs. Additionally, after the detox treatment is conducted in the hospital, patients continue to receive professional assistance during the post-detox adjustment phase at our beautiful, private recovery center, Domus Retreat.

Our Mission Is Your Success

Our continued success is due to our commitment to provide each patient with a specialized team of professionals of unmatched experience in medical detoxification. We always offer dedicated care and individualized attention to every patient.

More importantly, our mission is to provide the safest and most effective opioid treatment to help end opioid use disorder and the national health crisis involving opioids. To provide effective opioid detox treatments, we utilize the most advanced medical resources and accredited facilities, which are staffed by some of the country’s top physicians. We understand that every individual has unique circumstances, so we never use a one-size-fits-all approach. Instead, we create individualized treatment protocols that serve an individual’s specific psychological, social and medical needs.

This personalized treatment starts with a comprehensive medical evaluation performed by our medical director, Dr. Lowenstein, and other qualified medical specialists. Throughout and after the opioid detox treatment, our team focuses on the health, safety and comfort of the patient.
