course of the treatment
ANR is a drug procedure for opioid withdrawal that was developed by Dr. Andre Waismann. It is performed under anaesthesia in a hospital. It does not matter whether it is illegal drugs (e.g. heroin), substitution drugs (e.g. methadone) or painkillers (e.g. morphine or codeine preparations).
The treatment consists of three steps:
- Information, screening and prior clarification by the specialist ANR
- Treatment under anaesthesia in a specialised hospital
- Aftercare by the specialist ANR and the general practitioner
