Opium Addiction

“Reputation of safety and superior medical care, in one exclusive location worldwide.”

Opium addiction is a highly could cause very serious side effects. It is an opiate (narcotic) made from the opium poppy plant. It is often smoked and can cause a sense of euphoria, wellbeing and calm. Long-term or regular use can become problematic when a tolerance develops. This means a person must take increasingly larger doses to experience the same effects they had been receiving. This can lead quickly to physical dependence and addiction. Addiction can bring severe drug cravings that don’t subside until another dose is taken or the body is detoxed. Some prescription opiates used for pain relief are synthesized from opium and can be just as addicting. These can include OxyContin, fentanyl, Lortab, Lorcet, Vicodin, Percocet and Demerol. Opiate addiction is serious and can lead to personal and financial ruin, as well as overdose and death.

What to Look For If You Suspect Someone is Suffering from Opium Addiction?

Signs of opium addiction may include preoccupying thoughts with obtaining or consuming the drug. Cravings may become uncontrollable and thoughts may become obsessive. Use of opium may become secretive and behaviors may become more risky. Opium addiction can also cause loss of appetite, weight loss, confusion, hallucinations, glazed eyes, mood swings, isolation, forgetfulness, paranoia, increased sensitivity to sounds, insomnia, loss of interest in things that had previously been of interest and neglect of responsibilities and personal hygiene. Opiate addiction can also lead to other problems including depression, mental health and legal issues and problems with relationships and careers. Some people use opium recreationally, often obtaining it illicitly in order to get high. Recreational use of opiates has become an alarming problem throughout the world. Fortunately, it can be treated professionally in a safe, quick and confidential manner.

Give Waismann Method a Few Days and You Can Be Opium-Free

Waismann Method is a leading expert in the field of opiate detox. For more than two decades we have offered the medical expertise needed to eradicate addiction once and for all. Patients are usually admitted to a private room in our hospital for 2 to 3 days, where they are checked thoroughly for any possible underlying medical issues. We provide a comprehensive medical detox that uses a combination of medications to assist patients through the opium withdrawal phase. If anesthesia assisted detox is indicated, the process happens in less than two hours while patients rest lightly under sedation. The procedure accelerates the withdrawal process and patients awaken without the conscious awareness this phase has passed. Allowing patients to essentially skip this painful and degrading phase gives us an edge and allows patients to move forward quickly with recovery. We provide the highest quality care without using opiate replacements such as Suboxone and methadone, which can also be habit-forming. Patients are monitored closely until they are ready for discharge for a few days into our Domus Retreat aftercare facility to work on possible underlying issues and regroup in a tranquil environment.

The internet has become a breeding ground for false information, especially true for medical claims from other countries. It is crucial to verify the credibility of these claims before taking them at face value. When researching a reputable medical detox program, look for licensed and accredited medical professionals from well-known institutions. This will help to ensure that the information you are receiving is accurate and reliable. Don’t let false claims of overnight miracles lead you astray – take the time to verify their credibility and credentials before making any decisions.


In today’s world of increasingly advanced technology and medical science, it can be easy to forget that not all doctors are as reliable or trustworthy as we might hope. At the same time, most physicians are reputable and well-trained experts dedicated to helping their patients, but some so-called “gypsy doctors” lack proper licensing, insurance, or professional affiliations. These doctors operate without fear of censure or consequence, freely misleading patients to earn a more significant profit.


While it is tempting to believe that such unscrupulous behavior is rare in the medical field, sadly, this is simply not the case. These gypsy doctors take advantage of vulnerable individuals seeking help for their health, from routine checkups and general care to highly specialized procedures and operations. To protect ourselves from these dishonest actors masquerading as medical professionals, we must stay informed about the warning signs that can distinguish legitimate doctors from scam artists.


When choosing a treatment center, we highly recommend checking licenses, certifications, and long-term reputation in the U.S.; without these items, there are more opportunities for false hope, leading to disappointment, financial loss, and bodily harm.

Waismann Method is considered the most thorough and safe sedation detox available worldwide.

We are proud to have Michael H. Lowenstein, M.D. as our medical director for over two decades. Dr. Lowenstein is a quadruple board-certified anesthesiologist and is currently the most experienced doctor in sedation-assisted detox. Although other non-licensed doctors try to affiliate their similar names to our success, Waismann Method® is not affiliated with clinics or doctors elsewhere. We have always been at the forefront of medical innovation and set quality care standards. Dr. Lowenstein’s experience and expertise are unmatched, and we are honored to have him as a part of our team. Thanks to him, we have helped thousands of people overcome addiction and start new lives.


It is widely acknowledged that an effective doctor-patient relationship is crucial to responsible medicine. According to Dr. Lowenstein, this relationship must be grounded in trust, based on the ethical principle that places the patient’s welfare above self-interest. To build this trusting relationship, both parties need to be realistic about expectations, abilities, and limitations – especially those of the treating physician.


To achieve this level of honesty and accountability, a physician must possess certain vital qualities: humility, honesty, and selflessness. These qualities allow doctors to communicate openly and honestly with their patients, putting their well-being above their interests. By fostering an environment of trust and collaboration between themselves and their patients, responsible doctors can deliver effective treatment outcomes that are ultimately in the best interests of all involved.

Despite being the premier rapid detox center globally, Waismann Method® offers much more than just rapid detox. Our approach’s core is a commitment to individualized care that fully meets each patient’s unique needs and clinical conditions. We work closely with patients and their doctors to create customized treatment protocols that consider medical history, current health status, and lifestyle preferences to achieve this goal. Additionally, our medical professionals thoroughly evaluate each patient before beginning the detox process, allowing us to identify potential risks and harms and tailor our approach accordingly. This comprehensive yet personalized approach sets Waismann Method® apart from other rapid detox centers and makes us the best choice for anyone seeking safe and effective opioid detoxification.

Despite the many claims of “overnight cures” and “miraculous reversal of time” in the health care industry, our experts recognize that reversing the effects of opioid use can be a complex and lengthy process for some patients. For those who have been using opioids for a long time or whose nervous system has been significantly impacted by these drugs, it is impossible to rapidly identify and reverse dysregulations in the body or restore function to pre-opioid use disorder states.


Nevertheless, we have helped thousands of patients achieve an opioid-free state and begin reversing the effects of chronic opioid use on their bodies. Our health care professionals work to alleviate pain and promote physical healing through targeted treatments and other supportive measures, helping patients gradually restore their nervous systems to regain health and vitality. So if you are struggling with opioid addiction, don’t hesitate to turn to our team for help. We can support you every step of your path toward recovery.

In recent years, there has been an increasing focus on personalized medicine in healthcare. This approach to medical treatment takes into account a patient’s unique characteristics, such as their genetic profile, history, and current health status. Doctors can tailor treatments to each patient by considering these factors, providing the most effective care possible. In many cases, personalized medicine can mean life and death. As our understanding of genetics and disease continues to improve, the potential for personalized medicine to transform healthcare is limitless.

Patients fly from all over the world to our exclusive Southern California location. Upon arrival, a representative greets them at the airport, where their path to recovery begins. We have become a worldwide leader in medically assisted opioid treatment by offering our services exclusively in one single location. Furthermore, spending two to three days (or whatever time is medically indicated) in a full-service JACHO-accredited hospital and recovering for a few days in a private recovery center provides patients with the time and level of care from a responsible, effective treatment program.


The Waismann Method has been operating exclusively in California for 24 years; we have put all our effort into one sing location worldwide. Our experience has taught us that it’s best to do a few things well rather than spread ourselves thin. It is difficult to replicate our medical director’s quadruple board certifications, experience in treating thousands of patients for a quarter of a decade, and specialized recovery center (Domus Retreat). Because of that commitment, we’ve built a reputation of excellence as well as a solid commitment to our patients and employees. We’re proud to be based here and look forward to continuing to serve patients from all over the world for many years to come.
