NAD IV Therapy Q & A

What is NAD therapy?

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is a coenzyme that is in all living cells. NAD converts the energy in food to cellular energy, fueling each cell's natural function in the body. It’s essential for healthy brain function, but substance abuse depletes normal levels of NAD in the brain.

NAD IV therapy uses an intravenous (IV) drip to deliver the building blocks of NAD directly into your bloodstream. These molecules generate higher levels of NAD production, providing nutrients and energy to brain cells, and assisting in returning to normal brain function.

How does NAD IV therapy help with detox?

NAD offers a natural option to reduce cravings and lessen addiction withdrawal symptoms. 

Additional benefits of NAD therapy include:

  • Reduced anxiety and depression
  • Improved mental clarity and focus
  • Enhanced energy
  • Improved sleep


NAD IV therapy also benefits your physical health and overall sense of well-being.

What should I expect during NAD IV therapy?

The experts at Tres Vistas Recovery design customized NAD IV treatment plans to meet the individual needs of each patient. Typically, they recommend at least two weeks of daily NAD IV therapy for optimal results.

Your first few treatments may take 7-8 hours because larger doses provide significant support during the detox process. As you progress in your addiction treatment, your sessions should take between 4-6 hours to complete.

You relax in a private room during NAD IV treatment. Your provider inserts a small port into a vein in your arm and connects it to the IV drip. Once the IV drip has begun, you may choose to visit the common area to watch TV or Netflix or remain in your private room to read or use your personal device. Counseling services and other activities can also continue while you receive IV therapy.

Is NAD addiction therapy safe?

NAD occurs naturally in your body, so NAD therapy won’t harm you. The licensed professionals who administer NAD at Tres Vistas Recovery have extensive training and experience. They monitor you throughout your treatment.

NAD IV therapy is not yet approved by the FDA. However, current research supports NAD IV therapy as an effective way to support detox and addiction recovery.
