Vicodin Detox Can Be Achieved in a Humane, Private and Effective Manner
Vicodin is an opiate (narcotic) medication that combines hydrocodone and acetaminophen. Hydrocodone is the opiate component, and acetaminophen is a non-narcotic pain reliever. Doctors prescribe Vicodin to treat moderate to severe pain. Prescription holders should use it exactly as prescribed. This medication can be habit forming, leading to dependence and addiction. This development usually happens after patients build up a tolerance to the medication, which can diminish its effectiveness. Escalation of Vicodin use at this point can lead to dangerous drug abuse.
People should not take Vicodin dependence lightly. Its progressive nature means that it can worsen over time, creating serious hardships medically, financially, emotionally and sometimes even legally. No one who takes Vicodin for legitimate pain relief intends to become addicted to it. Dependence can happen abruptly if the user takes Vicodin over a prolonged period.
Over time, patients develop a tolerance to the drug, which, consequently means they require larger amounts to achieve the same results. This situation puts them at risk of overdose. Vicodin creates a sense of euphoria and relaxation, making it a highly addictive narcotic. New data shows one person dies every 19 minutes in the U.S. from a prescription drug overdose.
People struggling with prescription painkiller dependency involving Vicodin can turn to Waismann Method®. The Waismann Treatment™ has gained national attention for its patient success in combating this condition. Certainly, it can be extremely difficult and sometimes dangerous to quit Vicodin on your own. It is important to make an educated decision on how and where you will receive treatment. Vicodin dependency causes numerous changes in brain chemistry and organ functions, so it’s paramount that patients be monitored properly for at least a few days in order to regulate basic functions and prevent medical complications.
Waismann Method® Vicodin Detox
Waismann Method®’s Vicodin detoxification treatment has utilized the most humane and advanced medical techniques available to treat Vicodin dependency with the highest success rate in the country. Our patients experience unparalleled levels of professionalism, dignity, and respect. Our rapid opiate detoxification program and other medical detoxification options usually require a five- to seven-day inpatient stay.
We begin with medical tests to determine whether there are any underlying health issues at play. Our professional medical team performs Vicodin detox using non-addictive intravenous medicine to cleanse opiates from patients’ opiate receptors.
Our doctors have successfully performed Vicodin rapid detox and other forms of medical detoxification for more than 17 years. We receive patients from all over the world at our full-service, accredited hospital in Southern California. This is our only location; we are not affiliated with any other doctors or clinics anywhere.
Traditional drug rehab treatment methods for Vicodin addiction — such as talk therapy combined with pharmacological treatment to lessen the pain of withdrawal — often have less than a 10% success rate after the first year due to Vicodin’s powerful, physically addictive properties. Waismann Method®, however, has one of the highest opiate detox success rates in the U.S.
Our safe and effective opiate treatment doesn’t rely on outdated therapies or opiate substitute medications to encourage recovery. Some programs offer half-fast detox in which they use other opiate medications (Suboxone, Subutex or methadone) to wean patients from drugs that are more potent. These drugs can cause additional dependency issues, however.
Our Vicodin Rapid Detox Treatment
The right program should be safe, effective and humane. It should help to manage a painful withdrawal, thereby guarding against future instances of relapse. Patients also need to know that Vicodin detox doesn’t have to be painful or take weeks, months or years.

Essentially, anesthesia-assisted rapid detox is a serious and potentially dangerous medical procedure when not performed properly in an accredited hospital. Patients often have unknown underlying medical conditions due to long-term use of opiates and other drugs, so it is important that patients be admitted to a full-service hospital the day before the procedure for proper medical screening, monitoring, hydration, and pre-medication.
Vicodin Detoxification Treatment Details
We perform the Vicodin rapid detox treatment in a full-service hospital under the strict supervision of our quadruple board-certified medical director. During Vicodin detox using our rapid detox treatment, the body’s opiate receptors are cleansed of opiates while the patient is quite comfortable in a private room. The goal is to rid the body of physical addiction. In addition, the patient literally sleeps through physical withdrawal.
The Waismann Treatment™ eliminates the cravings that often accompany traditional opiate detox treatments. Each patient is supported every step of the way from admission to discharge and is assisted in creating a plan for remaining opiate-free once they complete the Vicodin detox.
Without exception, all anesthesia-assisted Vicodin detoxification patients should be treated in an ICU setting. Additionally, they should be monitored for approximately 24 hours after the procedure, with some patients requiring a longer period of monitoring to ensure stability and minimize complications. Many practitioners suggest less monitoring and perform the procedure in an outpatient clinic setting followed by sending patients to a hotel for recovery, which is simply inappropriate and unsafe.

Waismann Method® patients achieve an extraordinarily high success rate.
