The Opioid Crisis
Opiate abuse is unquestionably a major health concern in the world today reaching epidemic proportions, with annual treatment costs in the billions of dollars.
The social impact in relation to crime, family life, and lost productivity is immeasurable.
While usually classified as a psychiatric illness, opiate dependency has a strong medical component that is largely ignored in treatment.
The solution is here?
Dr. Andre Waismann is trying to change that with his medically-based method to fight opiate dependency at its core, in the human brain.
His treatment, Accelerated Neuro-Regulation (ANR), employs an advanced medical procedure to; accelerate and eliminate the withdrawal syndrome, regulate the neuro-endorphin balance, and eradicate the cravings of opiate dependency.
Thus far, Dr. Waismann has had over 24,000 successful treatments performed in his clinics, based in Switzerland and Israel.
Currently, Dr. Waismann is working with American partners to bring this incredible breakthrough to the millions of opioid-dependent patients here in the U.S.
How Does it Work?
So how does ANR work? We’ll break it down for you. Endorphins are naturally occurring chemicals secreted within the brain, acting as our “naturally occurring opiates”, triggering positive feelings and reducing the perception of pain. When foreign opiates are introduced into the body, they flood the brain’s endorphin receptors signaling the body to stop the production of our natural endorphins, as well as to create more receptors to handle the increased load of foreign chemicals.
As opiate use continues, the self-perpetuating vicious cycle continues, with the brain creating more and more receptors, leading to what is commonly known as tolerance. This leads the body to require greater and greater amounts of opioids to feed the neuro-biochemical demand and satisfy the ever-increasing amount of endorphin receptors. The body is now dependent upon the foreign opiates and craves to satisfy the need. The goal of the ANR method is to return the neuro-endorphin system to a balanced state, by eliminating the excess receptors and returning the body to the proper endorphin-receptor equilibrium.
The Success of ANR
After 25 years of extensive clinical and academic research by Dr. Waismann, the ANR treatment protocol was developed. In the US, The treatment in its entirety is conducted in Landmark Hospital of Southwest Florida, in over a 24-36-hour time period. The patient is sedated during the procedure for approximately 4 – 5 hours depending on the level of dependency. The procedure is conducted and monitored by a board-certified anesthesiologist with critical care experience, an internist and an intensive care nurse, using ICU monitors that display real-time vitals and advanced tracking data. Various medications are given intravenously to patients to accelerate and eliminate the pain of withdrawal, regulate and balance the neuro-endorphin pathway, and eradicate the cravings of opiate dependency.
Essentially, patients do not experience any of the pain and suffering of withdrawal while they are sedated, and they are freed of the dependency cravings when the endorphin and receptor imbalance is corrected.
As of today, ANR is the only treatment that addresses the roots of opioid dependency. withdrawals and cravings can be reversed with modern medicine and individual endorphin-receptor evaluation. ANR is quick and efficient and involves minimal pain and discomfort for patients.
It returns the brain’s chemistry to its original balance to eliminate cravings, something that cannot be achieved through detoxification, rehabilitation, or psychotherapy. This method also reduces the likelihood of attrition during treatment, something which is extremely common among traditional treatment methods.
Dr. Andre Waismann, identified the biological roots of opioid dependency in the ’90s, since then, he has traveled all around the world teaching his approach to treating opioid dependency with the benefits of modern medicine.
“Based on the scientific literature and accumulated experience in Israel and Europe, one may conclude that it is a highly efficient method and if carried out in optimal professional conditions it can have a 100% success rate. This method has a major advantage over other conventional methods: a minimal percentage of drop-out cases versus reported 30%-60% (of dropouts with other methods)” – Professor Moshe. K
“ANR treatment has had tremendous success when it was performed here in Romania…. many patients were successfully treated and freed from their dependency. Even with a selection of the worst cases, and still, the results were excellent.” – Professor Cristian Ene, President of the Antidrug Forum Association- FORAD, Romania.
“He focuses the team meticulously on every detail of treatment to assure the desired outcome for the patients of neuro regulation to achieve the therapeutic goal of neuro equilibrium. We are privilege to be working with Dr. Waismann in his mission to free people from opioid addiction. Dr. Waismann’s dedication to his patient’s well-being is infections. He is crystal clear in communicating his belief that each person is uniquely individual and must be treated as such, with dignity and respect.” – Susan Bailey, CEO Landmark Hospital
“It is important to emphasize that the treatment has a solid scientific background. The proof for its success relies on the fact that 100% of the patients overcome the physical opiate dependency. Dr. Waismann’s clinic uses a technology that grants every patient the opportunity to start a new life free of the addiction to opiates.” – Rezo, Davituliani, MD.
