Am I a Candidate for NAD IV Therapy?

Am I a Candidate for NAD IV Therapy?

The odds are that you’ve tried, unsuccessfully, to quit using your drug of choice. Whether it’s alcohol, opioids, benzos, or any other addictive substance, the detoxification process can be incredibly difficult as your body and brain revolt at the loss. These withdrawal symptoms are often strong enough that picking up again seems like the only solution. There is another way.

At Tres Vistas Recovery, our team of addiction specialists, led by Dr. Daniel Headrick, has had great success easing detox and early recovery with an all-natural, cell-boosting therapy called NAD.

Here’s a look at how NAD IV therapy works and whether you may be a candidate (we assure you, the odds are that you are!).

Behind NAD

When it comes to cellular function, NAD, which stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, is critical. NAD is an essential coenzyme that plays no small role in the processes that regulate how your cells produce energy (metabolism), DNA repair, brain function, and how your body fights aging.

NAD naturally occurs in your body, but the levels can dip for several reasons, including:

As your body becomes less able to efficiently convert energy thanks to reduced levels of NAD, the deficit affects a wide range of physiological processes, including brain function.

NAD’s role in detoxification

When you use or drink, you alter the way your brain functions. For example, when you use, you suppress natural production of dopamine, which is also called the “feel-good” hormone, as your brain looks to your drug of choice for the same effect.

This loss of dopamine plays a significant role in how your brain responds to quitting using — it creates those uncontrollable cravings that often lead to relapse in early recovery.

With our NAD therapy, we boost function in your brain so that you can begin to produce dopamine naturally again, which can help offset the cravings.

Another benefit of our NAD therapy is that it provides your cells with more energy, which allows your body to better combat physical withdrawal symptoms.

As well, since we administer NAD intravenously (IV), we’re able to flush the drugs or alcohol from your body more quickly.

Are you a candidate for NAD therapy?

Since NAD naturally occurs in your body, NAD therapy is generally considered quite safe for most patients. As we mentioned, we administer the NAD through an IV and you should expect your first treatments last for several areas each as we work to bring up your depleted levels of NAD.

It’s important that we start your NAD IV therapy right from the start so that your brain and your body have the tools they need to navigate detoxification with more energy, focus, and far less anxiety or stress.
