Roxycontin Abuse

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

Patients or recreational users who abuse their opiate painkillers risk falling prey to addiction or suffering a potentially fatal overdose. This is an increasing problem that affects people of all ages, from different socioeconomic backgrounds. Roxycontin is the name mistakenly used by some who are actually referring to OxyContin, a powerful narcotic painkiller that contains oxycodone. “Roxycontin” is also sometimes used erroneously to refer to roxycodone, another medication that contains oxycodone. Abusing oxycodone, regardless of its name, is dangerous. Abuse can include taking too much of the drug, taking it more often than what’s recommended or mixing it with other substances such as alcohol, other narcotics, tranquilizers, sedatives or sleeping pills. All of these medications depress the central nervous system and can lead to an overdose if combined.

Signs of Opiate Abuse

Use of oxycodone outside its prescribed use can be considered abusive. Escalation of use is common abusive behavior and usually begins after a tolerance to the medication develops. This means the drug’s effects – whether it’s pain relief, sedation or feelings of euphoria – become diminished and the person needs to take more and more to get results. At this point, the patient or recreational user may begin to take part in risky behaviors. Once the medication runs out, a person may begin doctor shopping, or visiting several different doctors to secure multiple supplies. Others may try to purchase the drug online or from street dealers. Some people may falsify prescriptions to make sure they have a constant supply. Prescription opiates often come in pill form and are meant to be swallowed whole. Crushing, chewing or otherwise breaking the pills to bring on a “rush” of the medication is dangerous. This can flood the system with the drug too quickly, leading to severe complications or overdose.

Oxycodone Abuse Can Lead to Addiction Which Needs to be Treated Professionally

Oxycodone abuse can lead quickly to physical and/or psychological dependence. Opiate addiction is always serious and needs to be treated medically. What makes drug addiction especially challenging is the withdrawal that takes place when patients try to stop taking the drugs. Oxycodone withdrawal can cause suffering and degradation as patients struggle with symptoms including:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Body shakes
  • Headaches and body pain.

Depending on the length and severity of the addiction, withdrawal without medical assistance can result in serious complications.

Safe, Quick Opiate Treatment with the Waismann Method

Waismann Method is a leader in the field of opiate detox, specializing in prescription painkiller treatment. Oxycodone or “Roxycontin” addiction is treated safely, effectively, compassionately and discreetly using an in-hospital procedure. This includes the use of intravenous medication to cleanse the drug from patients’ opiate receptors while patients are under deep sedation. This accelerates the withdrawal phase and takes less than two hours. Patients awaken without the realization they went through withdrawal. Patients stay 2 to 4 days and are free to return home once discharged. Others may wish to extend recovery at our Domus Retreat aftercare facility for transitional living.

Speak Confidentially

with an opiate detox treatment expert.

Be aware of copycats!

  • It’s essential to be aware of the difference between the authentic Waismann Method and imitators who offer overnight cures. The Waismann Method® is only available from licensed, insured, and reputable professionals in Southern California. It is not available in any other locations.
  • Unfortunately, pop-up clinics owned and managed by unlicensed and uninsured people may use overnight and dangerous promises to create more business while putting patients in harm’s way and at risk of immediate and maybe lethal relapse. The lack of affiliation to any regulatory organizations allows them to display unsubstantiated claims on their websites and other marketing materials.
  • These facilities lure desperate patients and their loved ones with the false guarantee of an effortless and permanent cure. It is essential to understand that opioid use affects several physiological functions that require comprehensive and responsible treatment. There is simply no magic pill or single therapeutic Method applicable to all people struggling with opioid use.
  • Overnight promises of a cure can do more harm than good. Unrealistic expectations can lead to feelings of failure, discouragement, and relapse. Combining all these negative feelings with the lower tolerance that occurs after detoxification leads to a much higher risk of overdose. Inpatient recovery care for a few days after detoxification can provide stability and support patients’ needs throughout the physical and emotional adjustment phase. Recovery care should be an integral part of any medically assisted detoxication for all these reasons.

Is Waismann Method Safe?

Waismann Method is widely recognized as the most effective and safest sedation detox available for several reasons. The main reason is that patients’ safety is always a priority. Our medical care is comprehensive, individualized, and, more importantly, responsible. We don’t believe in promises of overnight miracles. Although believing that anyone can cure you of opioid use disorder overnight might sound attractive, it is an unrealistic and dangerous promise used by less than reputable programs to attract more patients. Instead, patients receive the care and inpatient detoxification necessary for a safe and controlled withdrawal under medical supervision. This allows patients to begin their journey to recovery with a solid foundation and a better chance of success.

Our focus on safety, individualized care, and responsibility has kept us at the forefront of advanced opioid detoxification. Our quadruple board-certified anesthesiologist performs every detoxification under sedation in a private ICU room. The patient usually spends only 3-days in the hospital before being discharged to our exclusive post-detox recovery center. They receive additional supportive care designed to help them achieve essential stability to face the world confidently. Our successful outcomes result from our commitment to quality care and our dedication to helping our patients live happy and healthy lives.

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.
