Opioid Addiction Treatment Discussed on America’s Work Force

Dr. Andrew Waismann, accelerated neuroregulation (ANR) developer at Landmark Hospital in Naples, Florida spoke with America’s Work Force on Sept. 18 about new methods to help individuals recover from their opioid addiction.

Dr. Andre WaismannWaismann discussed why rapid detox and other forms of rehabilitation are quick fixes for opioid addiction, but still leave damaging effects on people. He said that with rapid detox methods, the body would go through aggressive withdrawal and are unable to regulate how the body produces certain chemicals such as endorphins. With ANR, Waismann said that it works to decrease the body’s receptor production that it built while addicted to opioids and help the body return to its natural and balanced way of producing chemicals. He said that during the treatment, the body’s endorphin-receptors are re-regulated back to the body’s state before the drug dependency occurred. Waismann mentioned that he believes this treatment is more effective than detox and will allow the person to return closely to how they were before their addiction.
