ABOUT WAISMANN METHOD
Located 45 minutes south of Los Angeles, the Waismann Method provides rapid detoxification from opiates like heroin in a hospital setting in Beverly Hills, Calif. Medically-managed detoxification is followed by aftercare at an exclusive recovery center owned by the center.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Treatment plans are individualized based on a comprehensive assessment that evaluates medical history, level of drug use, and other factors. Clients must participate in the assessment before admission into the hospital. The assessment will last a day or two and includes a physical examination, toxicology screening, and a chest x-ray.
Clients will be placed under sedation for 30 to 90 minutes during the rapid detoxification procedure. Clients will stay at the hospital the following day to receive additional medical care. For clients who can’t undergo sedation, an “intermediate” care option may be used.
Aftercare support at Domus Retreat includes individual psychotherapy, acupuncture, massage therapy, and yoga. Clients can pay an extra fee for private yoga sessions, personal training, psychiatrist consultation, and other services.
A medical director with more than 20 years of experience in detox leads the team at the Waismann Method. The hospital also employs a psychotherapist and other board-certified physicians.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
During detoxification at Waismann Method, clients will stay in private rooms in the hospital’s intensive care unit.

Clients have access to basic toiletries, laundry services, a pool and jacuzzi, billiard room, and 24-hour care. Transportation to and from the airport and hospital is provided.
