Waismann Method Medical Director Cautions of Increasing Numbers of Opioid Addicts
Date:7/5/2011

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., July 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Michael Lowenstein, co-medical director of The Waismann Method, an advanced procedure for rapid opiate detoxification under deep sedation, is expressing grave concern over the implications of a new report that outlines the alarming rise in number of individuals seeking treatment for opioid dependence, for example OxyContin addiction.

The report also identified that five substance categories were responsible for 96 percent of the nearly 2 million admissions that occurred in 2009.  (The report only analyzed data fo
