The Only Official Waismann Method®
“Reputation of excellence for two decades. One exclusive location worldwide.”
What is the 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 Method 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 name to our success, Waismann Method® is not affiliated with any other 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 recognized as 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 treating 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 the overall needs, wants, and best interests of each specific patient.
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 a candidate for specific treatment protocols.
Waismann Method is Only Located in California
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 been able to 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 recover for a few days in a private recovery center provides patients the time and level of care from a responsible and effective treatment program.
Waismann Method® treatment program has no affiliation with
other doctors or centers around the world.
