Natural Assisted Detox (NAD) is available for individuals undergoing the detox process. It effectively alleviates withdrawal symptoms for greater comfort while recovering from drug and/or alcohol addiction. NAD consists of the IV administration of a drug-free solution of vitamins, minerals and nutrients. This is a drug-free procedure, which means there is no risk of a secondary addiction. The patient is seated in a comfortable reclining chair and, during the painless procedure, a person may read, watch television or take a nap.
The therapy relieves symptoms such as fatigue, anxiety and depression. Stress levels are reduced, mental clarity is improved and cognitive function that is damaged by drugs or alcohol is energized. Withdrawal symptoms in the first three days are reduced by 50 to 60 percent and 70 to 80 percent by the fourth day.
NAD encourages the restoration of neurotransmitters in the brain which have been damaged by addiction. Neurotransmitter Restoration, also known as NTR, is administered orally and contains amino acids and vitamins. Restoring the brain’s neurotransmitters is normally accomplished using nutrients from food over a period of time, several weeks to several years. NTR provides a shortcut to restoration and results are noticeable in two weeks or less.
Since neurotransmitters such as dopamine, serotonin and norepinephrine contribute positively to concentration, mood and sleep, the sooner they are restored the better a person will feel. NTR contains components which ease a client through the withdrawal process.
Benefits of NAD
One of the components of NAD is nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, long words for a coenzyme that stimulates naturally occurring vitamin B-3. This vitamin combines with amino acid receptors in the brain to activate the DNA healing process. Therapy typically lasts for a period of 10 to 14 days depending on the needs of the individual patient, the addictive substance used and a doctor’s recommendation. A physician may also prescribe concurrent oral nutritional supplements.
Clients spend several hours each day at the clinic and, during therapy, snacks, meals, pillows and blankets are all provided to ensure comfort. Clients are monitored by a registered nurse during therapy and a physician and physician’s assistant are available.
Patients are intravenously provided a booster NAD supplement treatment every three months for the first year following the initial treatment and supplemental vitamins may be recommended. Treatments help combat addiction and prescription medications including methadone, suboxone and other opiates.
The best part abour NAD/NTR Detox is that it allows individuals who are seeking recovery from substances with harder withdrawal periods, such as alcohol or opioids, to go through a safe detox faster and with less pain and discomfort. Even better it reduces cravings later on which helps them to truly focus on the most important thing: their recovery
