The Waismann Method is featured in an educational episode of the provocative national cable television series, “E! Investigates,” dedicated to prescription drug abuse in America. During this one-hour, in-depth episode, viewers will gain insight in to the Waismann Method of opiate detoxification as the producers follow one woman through treatment.
The Waismann Method, a pioneering medical opiate detoxification procedure, is performed in a carefully monitored hospital intensive care unit and involves the administration of medications to reverse the physiological dependence on opiates while the symptoms of withdrawal are addressed. During the procedure, the patient experiences minimal conscious withdrawal, and will be able to return home within days. Seventy-five percent of the prescription drug dependent patients who are treated with the Waismann Method remain drug free after one year.
E! Investigates: Prescription Painkillers premiered last January 08, 2010 and additional episodes will air over the next months.
