THE ADDICTION TREATMENT
TALK TO US ABOUT THIS IMPORTANT DECISION
WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING
My brain feels sharp again. Alive with possibilities. I don’t have to go to meetings and talk ad nauseam about my past use. It’s just over. I no longer need marijuana. My brain just won’t allow it. The NAD procedure has created a new person. I am normal once again and it feels amazing. – Cliff H.
Having been a severe alcoholic for years I was initially skeptical. I had tried every program out there and NOBODY ever told me that a simple 10-day IV program of some nutrients could make such a difference. However, I did my due diligence and read others’ success stories and decided to go for it. Amazingly I had no compulsion to drink at the end of the first day. My mind was quiet! No more racing thoughts and negativity. I now have energy and motivation and ZERO cravings. Now after four months, I am completely free from the grips of alcohol in every way. – Alan D.

What if there was a treatment that could completely CURE addiction in even the most highly addicted individuals in just 10-14 days? In addition, what if this treatment could also restore energy, improve brain fog, bring back athletic abilities, reverse anxiety and also completely eliminate depression?
That Holy Grail exists and it is called NAD. It occurs naturally in every cell in your body but unfortunately, drugs, alcohol, stress, medications, chronic illness and age all contribute to a decrease in our NAD stores. As NAD goes down, so does our energy. Cells age and deteriorate, symptoms develop and illnesses are diagnosed.
Compelling research has shown that supplementing with NAD may help slow down the aging process as well as help you withdraw from addictive substances safely, overcome anxiety and depression, handle acute and chronic stress more effectively, and cope better with PTSD.
In fact, clinics across the US are starting to use IV infusions of NAD to help people withdraw from drug and alcohol addiction with minimal symptoms in as little as 10-14 days of treatment. These individuals report feeling calm and content and say they lost their “cravings” after a full course of treatment.
Addiction therapy generally requires between 10-14 consecutive days of NAD therapy. We combine this with amino acids and minerals for full effect. Treatment is tailored to your individual needs after a detailed consultation. (Other conditions such as Parkinson’s, brain fog, overall wellness typically need fewer days such as 3-7 days.)
What is NAD?
NAD--short for Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide-- is a coenzyme of Niacin--vitamin B3. It’s a necessary co-factor in every cell for optimal function. Unfortunately, the processes mentioned above---aging, drugs, etc.—all deplete our NAD reserves. As NAD goes down so does our cellular energy. This decrease causes deterioration at the cellular level.
Our IV administration of NAD aims to reverse this process. We administer this anti-aging compound directly into your blood circulation optimizing the potential for absorbing this life enhancing nutrient. Three to fourteen days of consecutive therapy with IV NAD, amino acids, and minerals has been shown to be dramatically effective at stopping addictions, restoring mental acuity, enhancing energy and in short acting as a general tonic.
Drugs and alcohol are particularly “good” at reducing NAD levels. Alcohol or any mood-altering drug (prescription or illegal) either mimic, stimulate, or suppress different neurotransmitters. Continued use of these substances can gradually decrease the brain cells’ natural ability to send or receive signals. The nervous system then becomes physically dependent on the substance, continuing to rely on it to maintain feelings of normalcy and to avoid withdrawal. This is the basis of addiction. Now, no matter how much the addict WANTS to stop using his/her drug of choice, the altered neuroreceptors cannot function without the drug thus perpetuating the cycle of addiction.
Restoring NAD levels reverses this process and allows complete and full recovery of the damaged neuroreceptors. NAD also supplies the cofactors for cells to return to full energy status, offering a possible way to undo mitochondrial damage and the resulting chronic illness.
Addiction patients need a full 10 days of IV treatment but occasionally, especially for those coming off benzodiazepines, an additional 3-4 days of treatment is needed.
Anti-Aging, Depression, Anxiety, PTSD and overall health
The NAD/amino acid IV formula is also effective for conditions other than addiction. Again, the basic biochemistry is the same: the aging process or medications deplete the body’s store of NAD and deterioration at the cellular level occurs.
One mechanism of action is the effect NAD has on sirtuins. Sirtuin enzymes appear to switch on and off genes that promote aging such as those that cause inflammation, fat synthesis and storage, and blood sugar management issues. Calorie deprivation can also do the same thing, but most people aren’t willing to do that!
The NAD IV protocol for these conditions is usually less time intensive requiring anywhere from 3-7 days of treatment as opposed to 10-14.
How is the therapy done?
NAD IV therapy is done as one 8-hour infusion per day for a period of 3-14 days—depending on the condition. Each person receives a thorough evaluation by our medical staff first to determine the exact blend of nutrients. At the beginning of each day, a trained nurse will insert an IV and begin to slowly drip in the NAD mixture. Patients have their own private room where they can comfortably relax for the duration of the IV. Withdrawal signs of addiction go down approximately 70-80% on the first day and continue to decline as the therapy progresses.
Between the fourth and eighth day, patients usually report feeling better, with increased mental clearness. However, it is important to note that patients must complete each infusion process to eliminate the addiction. Just as important, each patient must deal with the psychological triggers of addiction otherwise there is the potential of a return to the addiction.
Fortunately, side effects are minimal and pass quickly. The most commonly reported side effect with NAD therapy are flu-like symptoms such as nausea or achiness but this passes quickly.

Does Insurance cover this and how much does it cost?
Unfortunately, conventional insurance does not cover this therapy. However, our treatment plan takes just 10-14 days out of your schedule as compared to the typical 28 days of inpatient treatment.
We also have financing options available if funds are insufficient to cover.
