Using NAD+ IV Therapy For Natural Detox & Addiction Recovery

NAD+ is a healthy alternative for people who want to detox off opiates and alcohol. It helps alleviate withdrawal symptoms, energizes the cells and replete the body with nutrients that were so depleted due to the years of substance abuse.  IV NAD+ therapy can help someone come off opiates and alcohol with little to no withdrawal symptoms. This is the first step in a long road to recovery and it allows people the next steps including group therapy, counselling and so forth. All these things combined will help keep you on the straight. NAD+ IV therapy is given intravenously in our clinic over a 10-day course, keeping you more comfortable and allowing you to withdraw with little to no discomfort. Drugs, alcohol and withdrawal can deplete you of nutrients, energy and leave you lethargic.  With IV NAD+ therapy we are restoring brain and cellular function and increasing energy. This makes the whole process of “coming off of the drugs” easier.


In summary IV NAD+ therapy can:

Decrease withdrawal symptoms

Decrease cravings associated with withdrawal

Improve mental clarity

improve energy

Improve overall brain function

Increase athletic performance


IV NAD+ therapy has a 90% success rate with regards to opiate and alcohol detoxing and less than a 10% relapse rate at 1 year. This was due to a study performed on 60 individuals with opiate or alcohol addiction. They looked at craving scores throughout the 10-day treatment with IV NAD+ and relapse episodes at 12-20 months post treatment.

How is our IV NAD+ Therapy Program Different than Most


Brain Refuel™ Program and FastVitaminIV®


Although NAD+ therapy can be slightly uncomfortable as the IV is dripped into the person’s vein, the benefits after only a few treatments is profound. We use the proprietary Brain Refuel™ Program and FastVitaminIV® developed by Dr. Craig Koniver out of Charleston, South Carolina. This protocol is much more comfortable, and the infusions are delivered much more quickly. The NAD+ Brain Refuel is given in just 1.5 hours instead of 8 hours, as an IV drip and then the Fast Vitamin IV is given as a rapid push. Both IV therapies work synergistically to help you feel your best whether its for athletic performance, mental clarity or in addiction recovery.


Our NAD+ Therapy Detox Method


Our NAD+ Brain Refuel™ Program with FastVitaminIV® is an 8 to 10-day intravenous program that helps ease withdrawal and restores brain function. Each day the infusion takes less than 2 hours usually. The treatment is 100% natural as NAD+ is a molecule we already have in our bodies, we are just delivering a higher dose due to addiction and depletion of this needed substance in the bodies of those afflicted with addiction and those with illness.


Patients usually say they start to fell better by day 4-5.  The program aims to set you up for long term recovery success. Of course, addiction treatment should not end here, and we recommend maintenance dosing of NAD+ about once to twice a month for a while and therapy or counselling. Addiction is a complicated issue and requires a multi-faceted approach to ensure long term success.


NAD+ Brain Refuel™ Program with FastVitaminIV® is well developed and time-tested in use for addiction recovery and enhancing mental performance. It is 100% natural and considered a

great first step in recovery from alcohol and opiate addiction. With the combination of NAD+ and our Fast Vitamin IV protocol most patients report little to no discomfort in withdrawal and their cravings are significantly diminished. Patients also report better mental clarity, increased energy and better mood.


FastVitaminIV® is a powerful combination of vitamins, minerals and amino acids. This combination helps restore these beneficial compounds to you brain and body as you detox.
