What is Rapid Detox by the Waismann Method®?

First, we need to explain what Rapid Detox is. Secondly, we will describe what Rapid Detox by the Waismann Method really means. Why is the Waismann Rapid detox so much safer and better than any anesthesia detox out there?


What is Rapid Detoxification?

A rapid detox treatment, also known as rapid opiate detox, anesthesia detox or ultra-rapid detox, is a form of accelerated opioid detoxification performed by anesthesiologists in a hospital setting. By placing the individual under sedation, doctors can use specific medication to complete the cleansing of the receptors in under 2 hours. Although the anesthesia detox phase is quite short, the best rapid drug detox centers require people to remain inpatient 5 to 10 days for a complete detox and physiological stabilization period.


What happens during Rapid Detox?

During rapid detoxification, a patient is placed under sedation in an ICU Unit. The anesthesiologist intravenously administers a combination of medications, including an antagonist, to induce and speed the withdrawal syndrome. The anesthesiologist and his medical team remain present during the entire rapid detox procedure. Once the patient wakes up, they typically receive medications to rest while staying in the ICU under the care of medical professionals.

“Rapid detoxification has become more and more popular because it quickly eliminates the extremely uncomfortable and even life-threatening opiate withdrawal symptoms.”

Benefits of the Waismann Method of Rapid Detoxification

Nearly all medical professionals agree that rapid detoxification is not for everyone. With this in mind, a comprehensive physical evaluation should be provided before anesthesia detox is performed. Other medical options should also be presently available for those who are not candidates. Furthermore, following rapid detoxification, the patient should have inpatient recovery care throughout the regulation and stabilization period. Rapid detox or any other opioid detoxification is not a cure-all treatment and we highly recommend emotional care, post detox.

The Waismann Method professionals clearly understand the seriousness of Opioid Use Disorder and the level of care required to safely treat those struggling with this condition. Therefore, the Waismann Method includes treatment in an accredited hospital followed by a few days at a private recovery center. There are intricacies related to opiate dependence and addiction, from both physiological and psychological perspectives, which have adverse effects on the body and the mind. It is crucial for the success and safety of each patient that thorough inpatient care is provided. Adequate Recovery care, is just as critical, as the actual rapid detox itself.

What Makes a Safe Rapid Detox?

Comprehensive Pre-Treatment Protocol

All the preparation leads to a safer treatment. Having the individual inpatient at a hospital before rapid detox allows for:

  • A better understanding of how each patient responds to medications that will be critical during rapid drug detox.
  • A thorough physical evaluation, to ensure candidacy and information necessary for a tailored protocol.
  • Knowledge of what the patient has consumed or used in the last 24 hours. Drugs, vitamins and even food can compromise the treatment.
  • Additional time for IV Fluids and Electrolytes and whatever else is necessary to ensure smooth detox. Often opioid-dependent patients are lacking the essential element to maintain a healthy function.

Rather than have you adjust to our treatment, we modify the procedure to you. Every patient is different, with different needs. Opiates often change how your body works. Sometimes it may be a slower metabolism, which could also impede your digestive system, or heart rate and blood pressure.

Based on the results of the thorough medical assessment, a personalized program is designed just for you. It’s designed to reverse your opiate dependency. Designed to eliminate physical cravings. Designed to get you opiate free.

Rapid Detox in a Hospital ICU

Due to the rapid transition that occurs during anesthesia detox, having an ICU trained staff is recommended.  After detox, patients require close observation and monitoring. Specially trained nurses care for one or two patients at a time. Also, ICU doctors and specially trained critical care nurses are available for assistance. In an ICU medical staff continually monitor patients’ heart, blood pressure, and respiratory rate. By using an accredited hospital and an ICU, we enhance the safety of the rapid detoxification procedure while also maintaining or improving the patient’s comfort.


Treatment Performed in a Private Room

It is important that the medical staff attention is solely directed to the patient being treated. In order to save money, some treatment centers often put patients side by side, to be treated simultaneously. In case of any treatment reaction from one patient, others might not be receiving the adequate care they also deserve. The practice of treating patients together can be dangerous, and unfair.


1 to 2 hours Sedation, instead of 4 to 8 hours general anesthesia

Moderate sedation usually allows the patient to continue oxygenation and airway control independently, as opposed to general anesthesia where intervention and airway support are often required. Typically, sedation allows your body to recover quickly and with significantly fewer side effects.

Inpatient Recovery Care

As fast as you go through rapid drug detoxification, your body still needs to self-regulate and find its new baseline. After the procedure, you usually remain in the hospital overnight, for observation and continued medical care. Once discharged from the hospital to our exclusive recovery retreat, you continue to recuperate with around the clock professional support.

The recovery retreat provides personalized attention in a warm, home-like environment, while you are physiologically adapting to natural chemical readjustment. These include but are not limited to endorphin production, fluid absorption, body temperature control, sleep patterns and mood regulation.
