Need help quitting or getting off Oxycontin?
You’ve come to the right place
It’s important to note that a successful Oxycontin withdrawal treatment starts with an effective detox. In fact, the initial period of a Oxycontin detoxification can be intense, and a specialized medical facility can provide necessary support. Furthermore, no matter how much or how long the Oxycontin use has been, detoxing at a medical facility is always the safest option. Withdrawal symptoms can lead to complications and severe health issues that require immediate medical attention. For this reason, enrollment in an inpatient, Oxycontin withdrawal treatment program is a wise choice. Another key point is that detoxing in a fully accredited medical hospital such as Waismann Method provides 24-hour medical assistance, ongoing medical monitoring, and vital signs management.

Procedure Details for Oxycontin Detox
The procedure takes place at a full-service hospital to provide close monitoring and access to additional medical services and specialists. Staff admit patients into their private room to maintain their privacy and comfort. Medical professionals perform a thorough medical and physical examination to ensure the patient is a candidate for rapid opiate detoxification. It is imperative that we properly evaluate patients before the procedure as an in-patient so we can administer pre-medication to stabilize body functions. This helps to achieve a smooth and safe detoxification procedure.
Usually, on the second day, staff transfer patients to the ICU for the Waismann Method of detoxification under sedation. The anesthesiologist sedates patients so they sleep comfortably for about 60 to 90 minutes. During this time, acute opiate withdrawal is accelerated with the use of an opiate antagonist medication. A board-certified anesthesiologist closely monitors and controls the medically-induced withdrawal.
The morning after the procedure, staff usually transfer patients back to a private room on the medical floor where they continue to recover, receiving intravenous fluids, and regaining their strength. Staff encourage patients to get out of bed, walk, and resume eating regularly. During this period, physicians assess the patient’s readiness for discharge.
By the afternoon on the third day, about 95 percent or more of patients discharge to Domus Retreat. At Domus Retreat, we work with both the physical transition, as well as the emotional health of our patients. Opiate dependency causes numerous changes in brain chemistry and organ functions. After the procedure, it is paramount that patients are monitored properly for at least a few days in order to regulate basic functions and prevent medical complications.
OxyContin addiction is a serious problem in the U.S. that can progress quickly for unsuspecting individuals taking OxyContin ® for legitimate pain reasons. Once you have an OxyContin addiction, chances are, it’s too late to find an easy solution to get off OxyContin. OxyContin withdrawal can be both physically and psychologically painful if professionals do not manage it. Powerful, debilitating symptoms can develop within hours of last use, but patients need to know there are programs that can minimize, even eliminate, this trying phase. Furthermore, OxyContin withdrawal can be dangerous if patients try to stop taking the medication on their own. Symptoms can include:
- Severe physical and psychological cravings
- Cold sweats
- Seizures and coma.
Oxycontin Rapid Detox
During OxyContin ® detoxification using our rapid detox program, The Waismann Method ®, IV medications remove opiates from the body’s opiate receptors while the patient sleeps comfortably. The goal is to rid the body of physical addiction. Hence, the patient literally sleeps through physical withdrawal. The Waismann Method eliminates cravings that often accompany traditional opiate detox treatments. Additionally, it allows most patients to return to a productive life in a matter of days and eliminates the need to spend months in hospitals or rehab programs.
OxyContin is a potent prescription painkiller that has a high potential for abuse. It is meant for the treatment of serious, continuous pain but is sometimes prescribed for off label use. OxyContin abuse, diversion and addiction are serious issues plaguing communities across the country. Opiate treatment facilities in all corners of the country reported an increase in the number of people seeking OxyContin detox. It’s so important that patients who’ve become dependent upon OxyContin entrust their detox to a qualified addiction specialist.
Waismann Method ® is proud to say that we have the highest success rate, for nearly 20 years, of any other OxyContin detox facility. Additionally, 70% of our patients do not go back to using opiates after one year. The Waismann Method ® allows most patients to return to a productive life in a matter of days and eliminates the need to spend months in hospitals or rehab programs.
Traditional drug rehab treatment methods for OxyContin ® addiction – talk therapy along with pharmacological treatment to lessen the pain of withdrawal – often have less than 10% success rates after the first year due to OxyContin’s ® powerful, physically addictive properties.
Other Treatment Options for OxyContin Dependence
Some detox programs treat OxyContin addiction with opiate “replacement” or “substitution” therapy. This entails the use of Suboxone or methadone to gradually wean patients and delay the onset of withdrawal. This can be useful for some but tends to be long-term treatment and can result in the development of a second dependency and subsequent need for detox.
