Waismann Method® — Opioid Treatment Program and Rapid Detox Center

Often, a person becomes dependent on an opioid after they are prescribed prescription medication for pain management. Other times, they develop dependency after taking the drug recreationally. In either case, once use becomes regular, the person’s receptor sites adapt to the presence of the drug, and tolerance begins. A person is considered tolerant to a drug when they require higher doses to achieve the desired effects. As use continues, dependence develops, which can lead to addiction.

If a person tries to quit cold turkey, their receptor sites and the entire central nervous system are disrupted, causing unbearable physical withdrawal symptoms, including nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and sweating. It can also cause extreme anxiety and depression. This is why most medical professionals do not recommend going cold turkey but rather weaning off gradually under medical supervision. Quitting “cold turkey” can not only be physically dangerous but also lead to relapse due to the intensity of symptoms. So, if you or someone you know is struggling with addiction, please seek professional help rather than trying to quit on your own.

What Is the Waismann Method®?

Waismann Method® was created and named after its founder, addiction specialist Clare Waismann M-RAS, SUDCC II, in 1998. Since then, the program has maintained its reputation for being one of the safest and most effective medical opioid detoxification treatments available. One of the main reasons for its success is that the WAISMANN TREATMENT™ team collaborates across specializations to listen to your story and evaluate your situation from multiple angles to develop a diagnosis and treatment plan just for you.

The treatment starts in a private room of an accredited hospital where patients receive medication to prevent withdrawal while undergoing a stabilization protocol and a thorough medical assessment. From these results, our medical team, led by world-renowned Michael H. Lowenstein M.D. (our quadrupled board-certified medical director), will decide the safest, most comfortable, and most successful treatment plan to follow. The bottom line is that the Waismann Method® is an individualized approach tailored to each patient’s needs. This level of care, education, and research make the Waismann Method® detox protocols stand apart from other opioid treatment programs.

WARNING: The opioid epidemic has taken a toll on communities across the country, and many people are desperate to find a way to break free from addiction. While there has been an increase in the number of centers offering so-called “overnight cures,” it’s important to be aware that there are no miracles when it comes to responsible and effective medicine.

Waismann Method® is only available in So. California and provided by doctors licensed and insured to practice in the USA. It’s important to keep in mind that opioid use disorder is a medical condition with no one-size-fits-all solution. Our rapid detox program has a proven track record of success, and its team of experts is dedicated to providing the best possible care for their patients. If you are considering seeking treatment for addiction, make sure to do your research and only work with a reputable and licensed professional. 

Why Should You Consider a Waismann Detox™ Program?

Any successful detoxification program must be based on three solid pillars: safety, comfort, and long-term success. Waismann Detox™ protocol offers all of the above and more.


Waismann Detox™ is the only sedation-assisted opioid detoxification in the world that is performed in a private room of a JCAHO-accredited hospital by a multi-board certified physician specializing in addiction medicine and pain management. Additionally, all patients undergo a comprehensive health evaluation with a multi-facet team of medical professionals, including a cardiologist, to establish the indicated protocol.


Patients never share rooms with others. Instead, they have privacy while comfortably receiving medications before, during, and after detoxification. Additionally, there are no set protocols; the length and treatment protocol is tailored to each patient’s unique health needs.

Long-Term Success

Patients can choose Vivitrol or Naltrexone therapy to eliminate physical cravings, significantly minimizing the risk of relapse. Additionally, patients receive a few days’ stay at our exclusive recovery retreat for the post-detox adjustment phase. Included in this stay is private emotional support with expert therapist David B. Livingston LMFT.

We believe that a good treatment experience provides patients with the best possible chance for success by utilizing an individually tailored approach that considers each patient’s unique physiology and history of addiction.

In conclusion, if you are looking for a safe, comfortable, and successful program for Suboxone detox, fentanyl detox, or any other form of drug detoxification, look no further than Waismann Treatment™. Contact us today to learn more about how our rapid detox program works, what the Waismann Method® is, and how we can help you achieve your goals.

Is the Waismann Method® Safe?

Waismann Method® is widely recognized as the most effective and safest sedation detox available for several reasons. 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. With Waismann Treatment™, patients receive the care and in-patient 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 quadruple board-certified anesthesiologist performs every detoxification under sedation in a private ICU room. The patient usually spends only three days in the hospital before being discharged to our exclusive recovery center, where they receive supportive care designed to help them achieve essential stability to face the world confidently.
