Chemical imbalance caused by opioid dependency generates a central nervous system disorder that causes severe physical and secondary physiological distress. Opioid receptors will play a crucial role in both aspects of this illness.

What Is ANR?

Dr. Waismann’s Accelerated Neuroregulation reverses both the opioid dependency and its symptoms. ANR reverses dependency on heroin, Methadone, Suboxone, Subutex, and other prescription opioid medications using a safe, effective, and humane treatment.ANR is a method that addresses the fundamental neuro-pathophysiologic derangement caused by opiate dependency.In other words, ANR addresses the mental disturbance caused by the dependency.

The ANR method’s therapeutic goal is returning the central nervous system into balance by modulating it to decrease receptor production and allow the body to resume proper endorphin production, while also permitting the metabolizing and elimination of unnecessary exogenous opioids.During the treatment period and while under general anesthesia, physical withdrawal is induced and the process of accelerated neuroregulation begins. Neuro-chemical and endorphin-receptors are regulated and modulated to their “pre-addiction” state.

Dr. Waismann’s Accelerated Neuroregulation addresses the issue of opioid dependency and addiction purely from a modern scientific and medical perspective. He has ushered the treatment of opioid addiction into a new era, but more importantly given hope to thousands and shattered the archaic conventional medical approach of replacement therapy, long-term in house rehabilitation, and detoxification with the new gold standard of Accelerated Neuroregulation— ANR.

ANR Hospitalization – Step by Step


Hospitalization at the ANR unit, laboratory screening, and clinical examination. Pre-medication during this period allows for a comfortable transition into the treatment.


The patient is induced for a period of 4 to 5 hours. During this period, the opioid receptors will be blocked in an individualized manner, according to the specific status of the patient’s dependency and our clinical evaluation. Withdrawals will be precipitated and managed until the patient is balanced, and there is no longer a need for anesthetic agents.


The first stage of recovery begins. The patient continues to be evaluated and his or her endorphin-receptor balance can be fine-tuned during this time, if required.

The Next Day

In the morning, we encourage patients to shower, eat, and gradually start moving. The patient will be discharged from the hospital once the patient and the medical team decide it is appropriate.
