NAD is a Breakthrough For Those Seeking Relief from Addiction

Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide is a breakthrough for those seeking relief from Addiction.

NAD, or nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, is found in all living cells, and it’s required for the fundamental biological processes that make life possible. NAD is naturally the most important chemical that aids detoxification in the body.

This natural human compound is in everyone, but more so in babies and growing adults than older adults. As NAD levels decline as we age and are reduces our body's ability to respond to the harsh chemical compounds of pharmaceutical narcotics and ethanol. We will assess and review your medical history to determine the best way to use NAD in your detox protocol.

When NAD is taken intravenously (from an IV), it can be used for alcohol and AOD (alcohol and other drugs) in addition to poisons, toxins, heavy metals. NAD provides the energy to the cell that allows it to detoxify on its own.

NAD has been shown to improve symptoms of:

  • Addiction Withdrawal
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Chronic Pain
  • Depression
  • Alzheimer & Parkinson’s
  • Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE)

NAD Detox

Comfortable detox with NADNAD is a natural substance that when properly administered can greatly improve the comfort level of someone detoxing from addictive drugs like opiates and alcohol. NAD has proven to reduce the pain and discomfort of withdrawals.

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.

During the aftercare phase of the treatment protocol, various forms of NAD will be supplied to enhance the effectiveness and longevity of the therapy.

Genesis® Device

The Genesis® Device is a external nerve simulator that looks like a large hearing aid and provides comfort during opiate withdrawal.

What is NAD Therapy?

NAD+ is a compound which is found in every cell in our bodies and is involved in performing essential processes at the cellular level. It was discovered in 1906 by Arthur Harden and William John Young. However, it was not until the 1940s when scientists began to understand the true potential and function of NAD+ in the human body. Since then, NAD+ has been the focus of research and even today scientists continue to search for ways in this bio-molecule can be exploited for various healthcare benefits.

How will NAD Therapy help my detox?

NAD is a co-enzyme that is found in all living things, it is essential to living, and used in IV therapy at Present Moments Recovery. NAD goes into the blood stream and bathes the brain in nutrients that it needs, but is lacking due to normal aging and long term use of alcohol and narcotics. The results of this Detox protocol, for most clients during clinical observation, is a greater wiliness to participate in their treatment with more commitment and focus to a sober lifestyle. These are clinical observations that have been documented in client files and are not guaranteed results for every client.

What should I expect during NAD IV therapy?

The experts at Present Moments 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.

How long is the NAD Detox Treatment?

The treatment differs for every patient upon an the ongoing assessment by a licensed physician and nurses. It all depends on what drugs were being taken, for how long, and in what amounts. To be safe, we say that it takes 2 weeks of IV therapy every day with some clients finishing in 10 days. Quarterly "booster" sessions are done in as little as 4 hours.


How long does the NAD IV stay in?

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.

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

On the first and second day of treatment you will receive the NAD intravenous therapy and it can take up to 10 hours (or longer) because we are giving you the largest dose of the NAD. Every human body is unique in the amount of NAD it can absorb. You will also receive other medication and natural remedies depending on your symptoms. On the 3rd day you will start receiving half the large dose and the treatment will only take 4-6 hours. By the end of the treatment you should only be taking about 4-5 hours to finish.

How does it work?

NAD feeds energy to the mitochondria (which is in every cell of your body) through an IV Infusion. When the blood stream has increased supply of NAD the cells become stronger and more functional for all process these cells where designed to do.

Why Is NAD IV Therapy different/better than regular 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 is different because it uses a safe natural co-enzyme fixes chemical imbalances, lowers addiction cravings, and energizes deficient and overworked dopamine receptors in the brain. It is a non-addictive substance in which only various vitamins, B3 and Amino-Acids are needed to keep the patient in a non-debilitating withdrawal state.

So basically they will have no replacement of any sort except for natural co enzyme and amino acids to keep them from having severe withdrawal symptoms, no cravings by the end of treatment, and they will leave after 10 – 14 days with mental clarity, a new lease on life, and better sense of purpose to follow their dreams and aspirations.

This is a NON-Narcotic approach to drug detoxification supports the forthcoming addiction treatment process that leaves you healthier in your mind, body and soul.

We have licensed staff here watching over you during your treatment, and even when you go to the house a CPR certified house manager on duty at all times, there are no bad side effects to this treatment that can harm you, and it’s all natural.
