Waismann Method Reviews

Opioid Detox Patient

Today, I have been clean for 15 years and eight months…

I underwent the Waismann Method starting in 2004. I was ready to stop, and I was deathly afraid of going through the horror of opiate withdrawal. My use ramped up until the day I flew in from Kentucky and entered your Orange County Hospital program. Although the after-effects of having my receptor sites washed with Naltrexone were no picnic, it was clearly zero withdrawal. Gaining energy and clarity took some time, but I was able to resume work and pretty functional the following week. It just exhausted me. I immediately enrolled in an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and had access to a great, methodical, and kind therapist you provided as a part of your aftercare program.

I received a prescription for a few naltrexone and still have one in a matchbox and never used them. I am thrilled and at peace. My faltering business has grown to a level I never imagined. My relationship with my wife and son is excellent. I spend a significant amount of time volunteering in different areas of the recovery process. I am appointed to oversee long-term rehab facilities that are a significant step toward fighting the gigantic opiate/fentanyl epidemic. I can’t say that Waismann was the reason I was successful, but I will absolutely say that there is not a more humane method to detoxing than the Waismann method. I would recommend your method 100% to anyone that seriously wants to quit. Relapse doesn’t depend on the method of detox, but opiate withdrawal doesn’t have to be the most excruciating experience I can imagine. I’ve done it several times, and the fear of it kept me using for years. Feel free to utilize any part of this letter that you like. I will happily be a reference for anyone I can help with. I am loaded with appreciation. Today, I have been clean for 15 years and eight months. My guess is I’ll be clean all day again today.

Suboxone Detox Patient 10

Hospital staff was top-notch and compassionate

I was hesitant to come after reading certain web posts. The negative comments on this method (rapid detox) couldn’t have been more wrong (at least for me). I had been on Suboxone for 2 years and had tapered to 3-4 mgs. The treatment itself was very tolerable (I slept most of the day of the treatment) and the hospital staff was top-notch and compassionate. After the treatment, I had a few minor discomforts such as cramps in legs and diarrhea, but they were minor discomforts. My stay at the retreat was excellent. I have never been cared for so well both physically and mentally. The food was excellent, the activities (yoga, massages, therapy) were outstanding, and even though I had those few discomforts physically, I almost never thought of them. The staff at the retreat were always there for me and that was a great comfort. I will miss the people who work at Domus! (And Domus itself, what a beautiful place!)

Excellent, excellent, excellent

One of the greatest decisions I have taken in my life. Excellent, excellent, excellent. I feel Dr. Lowenstein is one of the greatest personalities in the world. You are like a GOD to me. Thank you very much. Special thanks to Clare for great assistance and all others for caring.

In the aspect of detoxification, I feel very well. But since I am undergoing leg pain, I feel a little bit excited to leave Domus. But All my faith on Dr. Lowenstein.

Thanks to Dr. Lowenstein for a new person after 10 years. You make me the proudest person in the world. Thank you very much for the hospital and Domus staff were being so friendly to me and I felt like family.

Great – exciting to be going home but also a little apprehensive. Hidden away here and then reentering society is a little scary but looking forward to it.

Treated with dignity and care

The Domus Retreat is a unique place of serenity where a person is allowed to not be judged for past behavior, but is treated with dignity and care by an experienced staff. Thank you for my stay!

This was the only one that changed me as a person

I had never heard of this approach to chemical dependence, and after 6 rehabs and multiple hospitalizations, this was the only one that changed me as a person.
I’m ready to go home, live a drug-free life, and be all that I know I can be while sober.

Waismann Method was the only way out

I was trapped in a numb world against my will, there was no way out. I wanted my life back…but I hit a wall. I needed help, and Waismann Method was the only way out, the only door open.

Waismann Institute and Domus Retreat are the perfect combination

Most detox and recovery programs make you feel like a malignant personality. Waismann Method and Domus Retreat are the perfect combination. I am now able to realize and articulate myself and “why” I used opiates to cope with life.
