Waismann Method Rapid Detox
Our Mission is to Reverse Opiate Dependence Comfortably, Safely, and Effectively.
Waismann Method ® Advanced Treatment for Opioid Dependence was founded in the late ’90s by Clare Waismann, RAS/SUDCC. Her efforts were in collaboration with C. Bernstein, M.D., and M.H.

Our focus is to provide superior and individual care to every patient who walks through our doors. — Clare Waismann

“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.
In Her Own Words:
“I have always been highly interested in the science surrounding mental health. Although I did not quite understand the depth and heartbreaks of addiction in my early days, after almost a quarter of a century of study, training, and hands-on experience, I am humbled with the realization of the multiple dimensions of this condition.
Although there is not one single or simple solution, there are many valuable resources and excellent results. I also learned that knowledge, professionalism, and compassion are necessary tools health care workers must possess. There is no place for stigma, judgment, or arrogance.
I strive to provide a safe space for those seeking help, where concerns are heard and evaluated, and where individual needs are carefully and respectfully examined. Treatment options are decided purely on patients’ needs and not on preset protocols that benefit the program more than the patient. I want the patient to have a meaningful experience. One that will help them choose a healthier path. I act with others in a way that aligns with my values.
My desire to be in healthcare was never misguided, but maybe a little naïve. I have since broadened my understanding of people’s needs, strengths, and difficulties. My purpose hasn’t changed, and I continue to strive to help people live healthier and happier lives.”

Clare Waismann’s View of Treatment
“Above all, I strive to provide a safe space for those seeking help, where concerns are heard and evaluated. Also, where individual needs are carefully and respectfully examined. A place where treatment options are decided purely on patients’ needs and not on preset protocols that benefit the program more than the patient. I want the patient to have a meaningful experience. One that will help them choose a healthier path.
I act with others in a way that aligns with my values. My desire to be in healthcare was never misguided, but maybe a little naïve. I have since broadened my understanding of people’s needs, strengths, and difficulties. My purpose hasn’t changed, and I continue to strive to help people live healthier and happier lives.
The idea that people see addiction as a moral failing has maintained its victims scorned, discriminated against, and punished by society. This stigmatization and misunderstanding of substance abuse and mental illness have been harmful and often lethal to so many. We have the science and the resources to treat these conditions, so all we need is to replace judgment and stigma with education and compassion.”
