How Regenerative NAD+ Therapy Helps Addiction Patients in Their Recovery

Addiction is a serious disease that can cause many different issues in a person’s life and the lives of their loved ones. If you or someone you love has decided to seek addiction treatment, this is a great beginning to a safe and successful recovery period. While addiction treatment programs that offer therapy and medication are effective, some people can’t help but wonder if there are more options available. There are, and one is nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide or NAD+ therapy.

Dr. Daniel Headrick and the rest of our team at Headrick Medical Center want you to have every option that can help minimize your chances of relapse and strengthen your recovery. Below, we have the lowdown on a relatively new but extremely effective addiction treatment called NAD+ therapy

How regenerative NAD+ therapy works

When you start using drugs regularly and they become addictive, it makes it harder for your body to get energy and sustenance from the food you eat. This is because using drugs depletes the body’s own natural NAD storage, which is essential to getting energy from nourishment. Administering this safe, natural substance can help you start to reverse these effects by quickly and effectively replenishing your NAD stores.

How regenerative NAD+ therapy affects your body and brain post-addiction

NAD+ therapy uses the co-enzyme niacin to help regenerate some of the bodily functions lost to addiction. The treatment involves putting NAD into an IV and administering it via a slow drip. The substance goes straight into the bloodstream and the brain, to start affecting you as quickly as possible.

After a regenerative NAD+ therapy treatment, you will feel more energetic, more aware of your surroundings, and more cheerful in general. The treatment allows you to feel better without the use of drugs and alcohol, and it can even help to curb your cravings for substances of abuse.

NAD+ therapy isn’t a miracle cure

As much as we recommend this treatment to those who are struggling with addiction or making their way through recovery, we don’t want to tout NAD+ therapy as a miracle cure. The treatment is very effective when given in regular installments over time, and it is quickly becoming a recommended option for those suffering from long-term addictions. However, NAD+ therapy isn’t wholly effective without being one part of a well-rounded recovery program that includes behavioral therapy, medication, group support, and other treatments. 

You shouldn’t expect to experience an absence of any lingering effects of your addiction as a result of this treatment. It can hugely improve mood, energy, and cravings for dangerous substances, but you will still need to do work on your own and with medical care to create the foundation for a solid recovery.
