The Waismann Method Provides Unparalleled Safety, Comfort, and Success.

Waismann Method Rapid Opiate DetoxIf you are looking for the best opioid treatment in the country, you have found the right place. The Waismann Method® is one of the most successful and innovative opioid detox centers in the country.
Our sedated detox methods have helped thousands of patients overcome the destructive effects of addiction to drugs like heroin, fentanyl, Suboxone® and Methadone. Furthermore, our detoxification program has maintained the highest safety protocols of any drug treatment program available.

Waismann Method® has been the global leader in the development of effective and safe treatments for opioid addiction and dependence. Patients from all over the world travel to our exclusive location in California, because they know they can rely on our safety standards, commitment, and unsurpassed quality of care. In the late 90’s we became world-renowned for developing the most advanced form of anesthesia-assisted detox, also known as rapid detox. The procedure rids the body of harmful opiates while the patient rests comfortably under sedation. Today, our doctors provide patients with a number of advanced medical protocols to treat opioid addiction, including rapid drug detox.


Not just the Best Choice for Opiate Treatment, but the Wise Choice.

The Waismann Method has become the wise choice for opioid detox, in great part because our patients receive:

Admission to an Accredited Hospital – A full-service Accredited hospital, provided patients with access to a range of medical specialists and services. Medical history plus additional tests are performed. These could include:
Chest X-Rays
Kidney and Liver Function Tests
Blood Work
Echocardiogram and/ or Cardiac Stress Test. 
Doctor Certification and Unparalleled Experience – Our Medical Director and treating physician, has been certified by the American Board of Medical Examiners, Anesthesiology, Addiction Medicine, and Anti-Aging & Regenerative. Also, his two decades of experience and status as a Diplomate of the American Board of Pain Medicine leaves him perfectly equipped to treat all forms of prescription pain drugs.
Private Room– A private room in a full-service hospital allows for individualized monitoring, undivided attention and additional comfort.
Inpatient Care–  During and opioid detox, (regardless if is Rapid Detox or a slower method),  withdrawal symptoms can be quite severe or even life-threatening. For this reason, an inpatient detox under medical supervision provides the safest and most comfortable setting possible.  Studies have shown that inpatient treatment is much more effective than outpatient ones.
Exclusive Recovery Center – For the majority of people, the recovery (regulation) phase post detox, is the most challenging part. To ensure a successful outcome, this step should be monitored by qualified professionals. Adequate medical and psychological support are key factors to prevent immediate relapse.


Licensed Opioid Treatment and Recovery Center

Our Exclusive Recovery Center
In addition to our inpatient hospital detoxification ( always in a private room), we have created a specialized post-detox facility, unique to the Waismann treatment. Instead of sending patients to a hotel room with a family member or friend, Waismann detox patients receive continuum care at our licensed and exclusive Domus Retreat for a few days. At the recovery retreat, a staff of experienced professionals works together to maximize the effectiveness of the detox process and the comfort of each patient.

Additional services offered at Domus Retreat include one-on-one psychotherapy, biofeedback, acupuncture therapy, massage therapy, special meals based on diet requirements and a number of individualized services to enhance the healing process.

Waismann Method® patients typically spend 5-10 days total inpatient including hospital and Domus Retreat. For very high levels of opioids or other medical conditions , patients may spend a few additional days .


More than a Rapid Detox Center

For patients whose dependence on opiates does not warrant sedation or anesthesia, the Waismann Method also offers  “intermediate care” treatment. These additional detox options are best for patients who have been dependent on opiates for only a short time or whom otherwise are not in optimum physical health for anesthesia detox. These modified opioid treatment protocols typically requires a two to four days hospital stay, followed by a few more days continuous care at our recovery facility.

Waismann Method® opioid detox relies on a wide variety of medical approaches because no two profiles are identical. Each person experiences opiate dependence and recovery in a different way. Therefore, our treatment plan and protocol is design for each patient based on an all-encompassing evaluation by our multidisciplinary team of experienced professionals.

While some people became opiate dependent after recreational drug use; others find themselves dependent due to pain after a significant illness or injury.  From young adults to senior citizens, individuals are different in what they need or even what they want. Some might benefit from speed and comfort in which rapid anesthesia-assisted detox ( rapid detox) is provided, while others may be better of with a modified and slower medical approach. Regardless of what opioid treatment you choose, our staff will respect your wishes, privacy, and comfort.
