The Waismann Method® has perfected the process of medically supervised opiate and alcohol treatment and rapid detox. Their process has been honed through decades of experience. It is consistent and reliable, but also highly individualized.
When a patient who wishes to detox from opiate drugs or alcohol enters the Waismann Method® detox program, they begin with a full medical evaluation in an accredited hospital. Physicians assess the patient’s overall state of health and determine the full extent of alcohol or drug abuse on the patient’s brain and body. ECG is used to look for heart rhythm abnormalities, and a chest x-ray is ordered to look for internal pathology. Bloodwork is an essential part of this assessment since chronic alcohol or drug use can disrupt blood chemistry, liver function, and hydration. In some cases, additional testing is required and performed by physicians and nurses experienced with patients struggling with addiction and detoxification treatment.
Many California addiction and recovery centers aren’t using medication-assisted treatment—our country’s best bet for beating the opioid crisis.
