Roxycontin / OxyContin Withdrawal

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

“Roxycontin” is not a recognized medication, but rather the name used to refer to OxyContin or roxycodone, both of which contain oxycodone. These prescription drugs are most often used to control pain but can become addicting with regular use over a period of time.

In order for patients to recover completely from an opiate addiction, they must go through withdrawal, an often-feared process where the body responds to the lack of opiates in the system. This can be due to sudden abstinence after prolonged or regular use, or gradual titration.

Speak Confidentially

with an opiate detox treatment expert.

“Roxycontin” Withdrawal Symptoms

Opiate drugs are potent and can produce a very intense withdrawal, complete with symptoms of:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Body shakes
  • Hallucinations
  • Involuntary leg movements
  • Strong drug cravings
  • Body aches including muscle and bone pain.
  • Restlessness
  • Insomnia
  • Diarrhea
  • Cold flashes

Many patients fear this process and unsuccessfully attempt to quit on their own. This can be dangerous because symptoms can be severe and result in complications such as seizures. Withdrawal should be managed through professional medical detox that is safe and promotes comfort.

Some “Roxycontin” detox programs rely on opiate replacement drugs to wean patients. Replacement drugs such as methadone and Suboxone are also members of the opiate drug class and have their own potential to cause dependence. Waismann Method’s opiate detox doesn’t use these drugs in our treatment program. Instead, we focus on wiping out patients’ reliance on opiates altogether.

In-Hospital Detox Offers Withdrawal Management and Safe Treatment for Opiate Addiction

Our in-hospital rapid detox medical procedure manages a painful “Roxycontin” withdrawal, allowing patients to recover in dignity. We use intravenous medication to cleanse the “Roxycontin” from patients’ opiate receptors while they rest deep sedation. This takes less than two hours. Upon awakening, patients aren’t even aware they experienced an accelerated withdrawal while they were sedated. We require that most patients check into the hospital for a total of 2 to 4 days for pre-testing to rule out possible underlying issues, the detox procedure and post-monitoring. From there, many patients are ready to return to their families, careers and homes, free of opiate addiction. Some may choose to extend recovery in our Domus Retreat facility that helps patients make the transition back to a productive life. Our offerings include holistic and therapeutic services such as massage, relaxation, biofeedback and counseling.

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.

Withdrawal Symptoms Common with Roxycontin Addiction

“Roxycontin” withdrawal symptoms can include nausea, vomiting, agitation, anxiety, depression, restlessness, sleep problems or insomnia, abdominal cramps, changes in blood pressure, tremors, sweating, blurred vision, hallucinations and psychosis. Most patients on opiate therapy don’t intend to become addicted to their prescription painkillers. Sometimes, this happens after a tolerance develops and patients begin to escalate use to get results. Escalating use can quickly progress to other forms of misuse and abuse. Once a physical addiction sets in, patients are sure to experience withdrawal symptoms if they try to stop without help. Waismann Method takes the fear out of withdrawal for our patients and gives us an edge when it comes to providing safe, comfortable detox.
