Since 1998, we have been providing advanced opioid detoxification methods including Rapid Detox under anesthesia and other forms of Medical Opiate Detox. Patients from all over the world are admitted to a private room at the full-service, JCAHO accredited hospital. The medical team treats each patient individually so they have the full attention of the medical staff and anesthesiologist. This is a private, safe and effective way to move past the physical opioid dependence.
Waismann Method® is named after its founder Clare Waismann, a Substance Use Disorder Certified Counselor and Registered Addiction Specialist. Mrs. Waismann aims to provide patients suffering from opioid use disorder with the most humane and effective detoxification programs. Treatment programs without preconceived ideas or protocols.
“Instead of focusing on the condition, health care professionals should hear, see and understand each individual’s unique health needs.” – C. Waismann.
For over two decades, Clare has advocated against the unfair stigma and negative preconceived ideas associated with addiction and mental illness.
