The way we view and treat substance abuse is rapidly evolving as the number of Americans affected perpetually struggle on a daily basis.

Long-term drug abuse alters the cellular makeup of the brain. Restoration of proper brain biochemistry helps to break the addiction.

The short term effects of alcohol are very different from the long term effects, mostly due to your body and brain trying to adjust to the changes alcohol exhibits. Your brain has a delicate balance of hormones and neurotransmitters, especially the neurotransmitters that ‘excite’ or ‘inhibit’ neurons.

Our NAD+Brain Restoration protocol replenishes brain nutrients that have been depleted by substance abuse. It increases the availability of NAD, thereby increasing cellular energy. Increased energy helps the brain more quickly rebuild its neurotransmitter population and reform lost connections.  This results in an increased sense of well-being, clearer cognition, and helps patients break free of alcohol and drug addictions with minimal withdrawal symptoms.


Compared to other detoxification methods, NAD works very quickly. Both withdrawal symptoms and physical cravings are significantly reduced within three or four days. Other detox methods take a while before they start working. NAD is also completely natural and non-addictive.

In a study (Broom, Carson, Cook, Hotard, Mestayer, Norris, Simone & Stuller), presented at the November 2014 Society of Neuroscience meeting in Washington, D.C., 60 adult patients (male and female) with addictions primarily to opiates and alcohol reported that their cravings fell from an average of five or six (on a 0 to 10 scale) on Day 1 to a rating of two by Day 5, and to an average of one or less by Day 10. Treatment consisted of infusions of NAD, along with vitamins, oral amino acids, and N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) for an average of 10 consecutive days. The treatment was administered from 5 to 10 hours daily at individually prescribed dosages of NAD each day. Perhaps even more impressive than the initial craving reductions, cravings remained low—a rating of two or less—even 20 months post-treatment. But these dry facts don’t begin to do justice to the human impacts of this treatment.
