“Reputation of excellence. One exclusive location worldwide.”


What is Waismann Method?

Waismann Method®  is a treatment program named after its founder Clare Waismann, SUDCC/RAS. Although most people recognize the Waismann name as the most famous rapid detox center globally, it is not all we offer. WAISMANN TREATMENT™ describes a combination of available medical protocols and therapeutic services that best fit your specific health needs.

Waismann Method World-renowned Medical Director

We are proud of having  Michael H. Lowenstein M.D as our medical director for over two decades. Dr. Lowenstein is a quadruple board-certified anesthesiologist and is currently the most experienced doctor in sedation-assisted detox in the nation. Although other non-licensed doctors try to affiliate their similar names to our success, Waismann Method® is not affiliated with any different clinic or doctors elsewhere.

At the Waismann Method®, all patients undergoing detoxification under sedation are personally treated by Dr. Lowenstein. Dr. Lowenstein believes that there needs to be a relationship between patient and physician based on trust to practice responsible medicine. This trust is founded when physicians’ ethics places patients’ welfare above self-interest. To achieve a successful doctor-patient relationship and treatment results, both parties need to be clear about realistic expectations, abilities, and limitations, especially the treating physician. To achieve this level of honesty and responsibility, the doctor must possess a sense of humility, honesty, and selflessness.


Anesthesia Detox and Many Other Medically Assisted Opioid Treatment Options

Although Waismann Method® is the premier rapid detox center globally, it is not all we offer. However, we believe it is a fundamental responsibility of the physician to tailor the care to the unique patient’s needs; for that, several treatment protocols must be available. Doctors should clearly understand each patient’s needs, clinical conditions, and likely outcomes. That is why it is essential to admit patients the day before sedation detox is scheduled. In doing so, our medical team can evaluate the potential benefits, possible risks, and harms consistent with each specific patient’s overall needs, wants, and best interests.

We do not make claims of overnight cures or miraculous reversal of time. Our health care experts understand that some patients might have been using opioids for a very long time. Additionally, the nervous system might have been affected, and it is medically impossible to rapidly identify certain dysregulations or reverse its pre-opioid use disorder state. With that said, we have assisted thousands of patients in achieving an opioid-free state, which allows their nervous system to reverse the effects of chronic opiate use while start restoring itself.

Personalized medicine is the tailoring of medical treatment to each patient’s characteristics. The approach relies on a clear understanding of how the patient’s unique genetic profile, history, and current health status make them candidates for specific treatment protocols.


Waismann Method Locations

Patients fly from all over the world to our exclusive Southern California location. Upon arrival, a representative greets them at the airport, where their path to recovery begins. By offering our services exclusively in one single location, we have become a worldwide leader in the field of medically assisted opioid treatment. Furthermore, spending two to three days (or whatever time is medically indicated) in a full-service JACHO-accredited hospital and recovering for a few days in a private recovery center provides patients with the time and level of care from a responsible, effective treatment program.


WAISMANN METHOD® treatment program has no affiliation with other doctors or
centers around the world.


Comparing the Real Waismann Method with Copy-Cats 

If the Components Bellow Are Not Available, It is NOT the Official Waismann Method ®

Waismann Method Cost Includes:

  • JCAHO-accredited hospital with access to several medical experts to ensure patient safety.
  • Private rooms that allow close monitoring, individualized attention, extra comfort, and privacy — we never treat patients side by side in the same room, which further differentiates us from other rapid detox centers.
  • Quadruple board-certified medical director. Expert in addiction medicine, pain management, and anesthesiology.
  • A longstanding reputation in the USA for superior medical care and exceptional results.
  • Thousands of patients were successfully treated in our treatment center.
  • Multiple medically-assisted opiate detox protocols are based on each patient’s health needs.
  • Around-the-clock professional supervision.
  • Inpatient hospital stay for 2-3 days and post-detox care at our private recovery center for an additional 2-7 days, also included.
  • Integrative recovery therapies to improve the physical and emotional healing period after opioid treatment, such as massage, yoga, and Tai Chi.
  • Additional weeks of individual follow-up psychotherapy.
  • Food, lodging, transportation, and around-the-clock support.
  • WAISMANN TREATMENT™ also includes Vivitrol injection when medically indicated.

Because opiate and alcohol withdrawal can lead to medical complications, treatment by a multi board-certified M.D. is pertinent.

  • We understand that making this first call can feel overwhelming and even scary. We appreciate your effort and understand your struggle. Our team is willing and ready to hear your history and discuss available options.

Getting through an opioid withdrawal on your own is not only physically challenging and painful, but it is also more likely to result in an unsuccessful attempt. For this reason, Waismann Detox™ provides an in-hospital solution where you can get the medical attention you need. Furthermore, our patients receive additional emotional and physical support at our private recovery center for a few days.

Waismann Treatment™ for opioid detoxification starts with a comprehensive medical evaluation performed by our medical director, Dr. Michael Lowenstein, and his medical specialists’ team. A thorough medical evaluation is essential to determine the best detox procedure to follow, based on each patient’s individual needs. Generally, patients receive IV fluids with medications to ensure comfort, manage vitals, and necessary nutrients while the medical team manages physiological responses. Our team’s focus is on the health, safety, and support of each patient during treatment.

It is crucial to consider addiction issues and other health problems, including mental health disorders, when seeking treatment. Detoxification is not an addiction treatment; it is the first and most vital step to achieve complete sobriety. An effective detoxification program center offers options for support following detox.

What Makes the Waismann Method Unique?

Various elements must be present to become part of a tiny group of the most effective detox centers. Treatment should follow the principles of the latest available science. Doctors and therapists on staff should have a high education level, board certification, and licensure of recognized American health care organizations. The most effective detox centers typically offer several medically assisted detoxification protocols and emotional management. Treatment plans, including protocols and length of stay, should be carefully tailored to their health needs and not on a pre-set basis.

Under the leadership of medical director Dr. Michael H. Lowenstein, Waismann Method® has been the pioneer treatment center in the evolution and advancement of medical opiate detoxification and rapid detox treatments. Furthermore, Dr. Lowenstein is quadruple board-certified and has successfully treated thousands of opioid-dependent patients over his career length. He also has over 22 years of experience performing successful rapid detox procedures.

Our physicians and staff are not only committed to detoxification success but also patient safety and comfort. Above all, we strive to provide the highest level of care, safety, and professionalism to every patient that comes through our doors.
