Waismann Treatment Center has a 20-Year Reputation for Exceptional Medical Care and Superior Results


Waismann Method® professionals have spent two decades, providing patients the best available treatment for opioid use disorder. Our commitment to excellence is as strong today, as it was 20 years ago when it all begins.


We Are the “Only” Providers of the Waismann Method®

Although you might see other websites and treatment centers claiming to perform our method, it is simply not true. We have concentrated all our efforts in one location, to give patients the best facilities, most experienced medical professionals and undeniably, the best drug treatment results. No other treatment center (worldwide) is affiliated with us, nor have they been trained by us.

Our highly respected, quadruple board-certified medical director only works with his team of specialists.  Our exclusive location in Southern California combines decades of experience and the highest opioid detox success rate in the U.S. — these are just a few of the factors that make us unique.

Most importantly, we tailor treatment protocols to your medical needs. As a leader in our field, we strive to provide the highest level of medical care to ensure your safety and success in completing your individualized detox treatment. You do not have to settle for less than the highest level of care or a treatment center with lower standards, and you do not have to try to detox alone. We are here for you every step of the way; from assessing you and your unique health needs, to carefully monitor you throughout the detoxication treatment while providing a private and safe environment.



Effective Medical Detox Performed in the Safety of a Private Hospital

Although we take great care to prevent an adverse medical event as responsible medical care providers, we always want to be prepared in case one should arise. In a full-service, JCAHO-accredited hospital in Southern California, our patients have access to many specialized physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals to provide any medical care you need without delay. In addition to attention from our dedicated staff at the hospital, you will receive a private room and around-the-clock medical care to keep you on the path to better health.

Our medical staff takes into account many patient factors before beginning opioid detox treatments, such as:

• Overall health
• Level and length of opiate use and other drugs.
• Medical history
• Age

Waismann Method® offers rapid detox and other forms of opioid detoxification treatment. If you are not a candidate for or do not want anesthesia-assisted opiate detox, we have other medical detox treatments that might be more appropriate for your specific needs.

Like the rest of the treatment experience at Waismann Method® and our recovery center, Domus Retreat, your privacy is always respected. We don’t ask you to share rooms or your personal history with strangers. There are no chores, and you are not forced to take part in structured group therapy.

Our detox success rate is the highest in the U.S.!

We have helped thousands of patients successfully detox from opioids.

What Does JCAHO Mean?

The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) is a non-profit organization that sets strict quality standards for medical facilities. It is considered the gold standard in healthcare. Medical institutions are evaluated based on extremely high criteria and receive accreditation only when meeting these standards.

Our detox success rate is nearly 100%!

We have successfully treated thousands of patients from around the world.

Private, Safe and Compassionate Treatment for Opioid Dependence

Private Rooms for Patients

The anxiety of going through opioid withdrawal at an opiate detox center can be stressful and challenging. Surrounding a patient with strangers while they are going through withdrawal treatment can only exacerbate the stress and discomfort. That is just one of the reasons why we always provide our patients with private rooms. We strive to offer the most dignified and comfortable opiate detox treatment possible.

Safe and Secure Opioid Detox Procedures

Patients come in to our opiate treatment center at least one day before anesthesia-assisted rapid detoxification for a comprehensive physical examination, pre-medication and further analysis of each patient’s unique response to medications that are vital to their comfort and safety through the rapid detox treatment. Our medical director has over 20 years of experience conducting medical detox treatments. For decades, we’ve had a solid reputation for providing exceptional medical care and an over 98% opiate detox success rate. Our detox treatment center is focused on putting your unique needs first to give you the best chance at a successful detox and recovery.

Individualized Medical Attention

Our multi-board-certified medical director treats one patient at a time in a private ICU room. This practice ensures the level of care and attention is exponentially higher than in other rapid detox centers that simultaneously treat multiple patients side by side.

In most cases, the total inpatient commitment for patients at our treatment center is about 5 to 10 days, although extended stays are available at Domus Retreat.

Post-Detox Recovery at One of the Best Opiate Treatment Centers

Domus Retreat was created to offer a safer post-detox recovery alternative to sending patients to a hotel room after rapid detox. Some detox treatment centers discharge patients prematurely and send them to a hotel on their own or with a friend or family member who isn’t prepared to offer necessary support. With regard to safe and effective opioid detox recovery, we do not believe in cutting corners.

Our goal is to provide the responsible and reliable care that our patients deserve. Discharge is not rushed but is instead only decided after careful medical evaluation. Once discharged, our patients are provided transportation to Domus Retreat, where they stay in a private room and receive care and attention from our support staff and physicians.

Our Recovery Center Is Vastly Different From a Rehab

Domus Retreat is a private, state-licensed drug treatment recovery center unlike other traditional rehabs and treatment centers. At Domus Retreat, guests do not attend meetings or complete chores. Staff members always respect patients’ physical and emotional space as well as their specific needs.

Many traditional rehab centers treat patients as just a number and have them participate in a preset program. We are different. We customize your treatment and post-detox adjustment care to provide the best care we can for you and your unique needs.

We believe the first few days after detox are crucial to the safety, comfort and success of the treatment. We prioritize seeing, listening and understanding each individual.

Prepare for Your New, Healthier Life

At Domus Retreat, our guests also have the option of returning for a week or a few days after spending some time at home. In some cases, it takes being in that space to recognize the underlying issue that caused the opioid abuse. For that reason, we welcome the opportunity to further help people build strength and tools while in a safe and comfortable environment at Domus Retreat.
