Waismann Method Offers Safe Treatment for Dependency to Benzodiazepines

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Aug. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- The Waismann Method, a pioneering medical opiate detoxification procedure, offers one of the most advanced medical procedures worldwide with the medical expertise and advanced technology to treat dependencies to Benzodiazepines, including Ativan, Xanax, Klonopin and Valium. The Waismann Method of Accelerated Benzodiazepine Neuro-Regulation (ABNR) involves a safe, medically-assisted withdrawal from Benzodiazepines in a hospital setting. This advanced approach to Benzodiazepine withdrawal offers patients another alternative to traditional benzodiazepine detoxification, which even when done gradually, can be extremely dangerous and even life threatening.

"Prolonged use of Benzodiazepine-based drugs can trigger painful and debilitating withdrawal symptoms making it nearly impossible for those with dependencies to stop taking them without medical assistance," said Dr. Michael Lowenstein, co-director for the Waismann Method. "Dependency is a chemical imbalance that can occur through legitimate use, and should be medically addressed. We hope that anyone suffering dependency to Benzodiazepines will seek the help they deserve to reclaim their lives."

Benzodiazepines are among the most widely prescribed medications, and are typically used to sedate, relieve anxiety, induce sleep and relieve muscle spasms. Stopping abruptly after long term use of these medications may cause seizures and possibly death. Other common symptoms of benzodiazepine withdrawal include anxiety, insomnia, agitation, muscle spasms, cramps, blurred vision, dizziness, dry mouth, numbness, impaired memory and concentration, chest pain, sleep problems, fatigue, weakness, nightmares and hallucinations. Even slow, gradual weaning from these medications is likely to result in prolonged withdrawal symptoms, often leading to months of debilitating anxiety, depression, and insomnia, due to changes in the brain following long term benzodiazepine use.

Medically assisted withdrawal using Accelerated Benzodiazepine Neuro-Regulation (ABNR) enables individuals to safely and comfortably reverse their dependence on benzodiazepines, without difficult and prolonged withdrawal. The Waismann Method of Accelerated Benzodiazepine Neuro-Regulation takes approximately five to seven days, as opposed to traditional detoxification methods that require 30 days or more, and can be administered alone or concurrently with anesthesia-assisted detoxification from opiates, if necessary, which was pioneered by Waismann Method doctors more than 10 years ago.

Patients in the Waismann program are supervised closely in a hospital setting to maximize success and safety. All Waismann Method physicians are Board Certified in Anesthesiology, Pain Management, and Addiction Medicine, specialists and detoxification is performed in a monitored hospital setting. Treatment is tailored to the unique medical needs of each individual patient.

About The Waismann Method

Performed in a hospital intensive care unit, the Waismann Method involves the administration of medications to reverse the physiological dependence on opiates or benzodiazepines while the symptoms of withdrawal are addressed. During the procedure, the patient experiences minimal conscious withdrawal, and will be able to return home within days. Seventy-five percent of the prescription drug dependent patients who are treated with the Waismann Method remain drug free after one year.
