NAD Detoxification

What is NAD Detoxification?

NAD is a specialized IV infusion therapy that blunts the withdrawal symptoms of detoxification from opioids (narcotics), benzodiazepines, and alcohol. Combined with amino acid infusion, the therapy replenishes the critical central nervous system neurotransmitters that become depleted in addiction disorders.  This results from these drugs of abuse mimicking or blocking normal dopamine and serotonin function.

What are the benefits?

Amino acid replacement and daily NAD infusions of up to 750 mg-1000 mg work by restoring nutritional balance, controlling cravings, and providing mental clarity. NAD detox speeds up recovery, decreases painful withdrawal symptoms, and when combined with effective behavioral modification, promotes long term recovery. In a longitudinal study of Amino Acid and NAD detoxification sponsored by the World Health Organization that included over 3000 patients, 70% of these patients were sober after three years.

Am I a candidate?

To enter into a course of amino acid and NAD detox, you will start with a comprehensive evaluation by Dr. Wills and his team to determine if you are a good candidate. The proper mixture of amino acids, vitamins and minerals, and your dosing of NAD will be customized to your specific needs.

What is Suboxone?

Suboxone is a brand name medication commonly prescribed by clinicians to treat opioid use disorder, and it’s a combination of two medications: buprenorphine and naloxone.

What are the benefits?

Buprenorphine helps relieve symptoms of opioid withdrawal, suppresses cravings, and reduces overdose risk. Naloxone prevents the medication from being injected or misused. The FDA has also approved generic versions of Suboxone. Naloxone (commonly known as Narcan) is an opioid antagonist, which means it blocks opioids in the brain. The combination of buprenorphine with naloxone discourages misuse of the medication.

How can I begin Suboxone treatment?

To enter into treatment with Suboxone, you will start with a comprehensive evaluation by Dr. Wills and his team to determine if you are a good candidate. Medication selection and additional treatment such as behavioral health therapy will be individualized to your specific needs.
