NAD Treatment Center™ is a provider of Brain Restoration Therapy, using intravenous NAD+. The therapy assists in alleviating brain-destroying diseases of alcoholism, addiction, chronic stress, depression and anxiety. Combining innovation and compassion, our medical team provides healing and hope for people who are affected by substance abuse and addiction. NAD+ supports the detoxification process and brain function to help your ongoing treatment and aftercare
Researchers investigating brain health and longevity have found NAD+ is an essential coenzyme that promotes cellular regeneration. Studies have found replenishing cellular levels of NAD+ can repair DNA, protect brain cells from damage, reduce inflammation and turn on enzymes that help prevent aging.
Intravenous NAD+ has been used since the 1960s to help individuals detoxify from alcohol and opioid dependencies. In the last ten years, NAD+ has been more widely used to help detoxify from other types of chemical dependencies, including benzodiazepines, methadone, suboxone, methamphetamines and stimulants.
Many chronic conditions, including chronic fatigue syndrome, neurodegenerative disease and mental health disorders have been linked to cellular dysfunction and dysregulation. NAD+ therapy may help reduce the symptoms of many chronic conditions, and may help individuals suffering from chronic conditions regain their vitality and strength.
What if there was a compound that could turn back time, restore energy, improve athletic performance, bring back clarity of thought, reverse depression and help cure cravings for alcohol and drugs even in the most addicted individuals?
There is such a substance. It is called NAD+, and it occurs naturally in every cell in your body.
Compelling research has shown that supplementing with NAD+ may 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 7-14 days of treatment. These individuals report feeling calm and content and say they lost their “cravings” after a full course of treatment.
And NAD+ may actually prolong life, protect DNA, slow down aging and help restore function in neurodegenerative illness due to its effects on the genes that govern aging.
Dr. Starr prescribes Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD+) for intravenous administration under the supervision of our trained registered nurses. NAD+ treatments are performed in our outpatient infusion rooms. While each infusion session typically takes a full 6-8 hours, the duration of NAD+ treatment typically requires 10 (or more) sessions to ensure complete results. For treatment for a non-addiction disorder, such as stress or anxiety, your treatment course may be shorter, and is ultimately determined during your medical assessment with Dr. Starr.
NAD+ Therapy involves a high dose intravenous infusion of NAD+ that goes straight into the bloodstream. IV therapy allows NAD+ to bypass the digestive system for better absorption. NAD+ works rapidly to repair cells throughout the body and neurons in the brain. When your NAD+ levels are increased, your cells produce more energy, your good genes are “turned on”, DNA is repaired, and many other functions are optimized. Since NAD+ is such a powerful and prolific molecule in the body, high dose IV therapy can be helpful for many different conditions.

Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy
Chronic Migraine Headaches
Depression / Anxiety
NAD is short for Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide. NAD is a coenzyme of Niacin, which is vitamin B3. Niacin produces energy in the body which is needed for its proper function and well-being. However, people that are involved in drug and alcohol abuse are deficient in NAD making it hard for them to get over their addictions. It is no wonder high-end drug rehabs used it to detox heavily addicted patients from tranquilizers, alcohol and stimulants among others.
NAD IV Drips Brain Restoration Therapy
A majority of people that are addicted to alcohol and other harmful drugs usually suffer from a severe form of neurotransmitter imbalance. This imbalance results in them experiencing insomnia, depression and anxiety among others. Apart from this imbalance, their bodies also absorb nutrients poorly leading to other mineral imbalances and their capability in forming neurotransmitters is also negatively affected. However, when amino acids are introduced into the body along other vitamins and coenzymes the proper levels are re-established and neurotransmitters begin to be properly circulated in the body, thus eliminating or at least reducing the withdrawal effects a drug addict would have otherwise experienced.
NAD IV Drips Brain Restoration Therapy is based on the supplementing of amino acids in the body so that it can be able to produce its own neurotransmitters and utilize them properly as well. When the production and utilization are done well through exercise and proper nutrition, the drug addict begins to get closer to being completely cured other than the suppression of symptoms as other conventional therapies have been known to do.
In general, the use of NAD amino acid IV drips to repair the brain of drug addicts has been quite successful. For those considering signing up for the treatment in any of the drug rehab centers run by professionals, it is important to note that:
The treatment only works when followed as described by a health worker at an accredited facility. Also, the length of treatment varies from one person to another thus making it important to exercise patient while seeking this kind of treatment for addiction. For example, alcohol addiction can be overcome much faster when compared to other hard drugs. Patients interested in NAD amino acid IV Drips should expect to be discouraged by medical experts on the use of this addiction treatment but with the proper administration, the results are likely to be successful. Finally, NAD IV Drips for Addiction Treatment can be a bit costly but the benefits are worth it in the long run.
How is NAD Therapy Used?
NAD Therapy Requires The Use Of An IV DripIn NAD Therapy, the co-enzyme is placed in an IV and slowly dripped into the blood stream. This allows the substance to bypass the stomach (where analgesic medication breaks down) and travel directly to the brain. This provides the individual with a boost of energy, providing enhanced mood and awareness, as the energy they get is now from their natural sources, not other substances. It has also been claimed to slow the aging process. These benefits have opened the door for clinics to use it as a luxury, like a spa treatment.
Advertising it as an all-natural, mood-elevating, no-crash, anti-aging energy booster, clinics are selling to people who have not suffered an addiction of any kind. It is advertised as a therapeutic treatment to give them more energy and reverse aging. This procedure isn’t as lengthy as someone looking for rehabilitation and can be sold as a regular treatment appointment, receiving a “top off” every 6 to 8 weeks.
Why Use NAD Therapy to Treat Addiction?
It has been determined that the excessive use of drugs and alcohol will deplete the body’s natural stores of NAD. Because of this, the brain cannot receive the same energy it usually would from breaking down food. NAD Therapy floods the brain with the co-enzyme to replenish its stores, providing three key effects.
It flushes out all of the drugs that are still in the user’s system.
It curbs the cravings for alcohol and Opioids and lessens the pain of withdrawal, making recovery easier physically and mentally.
It allows the body to produce energy more naturally, without a crash or jitters like caffeine and sugar or the negative effects that come with other substances.
Length of sessions vary depending on severity of the addiction and what the clinic recommends. After the initial session, follow ups will be scheduled 1 to 2 months later. These sessions can continue at the discretion of the prescribing clinic.
