NAD Study Information



Since 40%-60% of all (conventional) (inpatient, outpatient, hospital) rehab patients relapse according to the NIH’s National Institute on Drug Abuse, it is important to provide all possible solutions to have the patient be ready to receive treatment. 

NAD helps the body to repair the brain. This is particularly important considering that long-term drug use results in changes in the brain that persist long after a person stops using drugs. These drug-induced changes in brain function include an inability to exert control over the impulse to use drugs. Headrick Medical Center and Tres Vistas Recovery addresses brain health.

Substance disorders can be treated most cost-effectively in outpatient drug-free settings. Headrick Medical Center coordinates with IOP’s and out-of-town clients to receive NAD Treatment.
