NAD Therapy’s Craving Relief

NAD therapy’s craving relief is one of its most important components. Cravings during addiction recovery are one of the biggest risk factors for relapse. They sneak up on you and can quickly make you feel lost and out of control (think walking down New Orleans’ Bourbon Street on Halloween or Mardi Gras). But learning how to deal with cravings is an important part of recovery. Our goal is to help you understand cravings, identify triggers, avoid cues, and manage with coping skills. With of course the biggest support being NAD therapy’s relief from cravings. NAD therapy’s craving relief is one of its most important components.

Cravings can be the brain’s way of remembering a habit or behavior that has been repeated many times. They are often normal in early recovery and do pass, even the ones that feel quite strong. But cravings also tell us what our body is lacking and needs. For someone who has struggled with substance abuse, their body is often deficient in vitamins, minerals and more. So this needs to be addressed in early recovery to help the body heal from the damage and be more resistant to cravings. Read more

Road Map to Recovery with NAD Therapy: Begin Here

Recovery with NAD Therapy offers hope for those who wish to end their dependence to drugs or alcohoRoad Map to Recovery with NAD Therapy: Begin Here l. As many of you know, recovery is unique to each individual and can occur in many different forms. Each individual entering a drug or alcohol treatment program has their own distinct needs, strengths, preferences, goals, culture, backgrounds, and support systems. This all determines the best course of action for treatment and recovery. It is a highly personal experience that builds on strengths, talents, coping abilities, and resources of each individual. But there are some advantages to beginning a recovery with NAD Therapy.

NAD Therapy (like ExecuCare’s NTR Brain Restoration) is a nutrition-assisted detox that utilizes nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), amino acids, vitamins, minerals and co-factors to flush out stored drugs from the body and its organs (in days rather than weeks or months), replenish balance in the brain, and reverse damage of chronic use. Because it is received directly through an IV, the nutrients bypass the stomach and go directly to the receptors in the brain. Research has shown that recovery with NAD therapy increases the synthesis of certain neurotransmitters in the brain known to be effective in correcting specific chemical imbalances. One of the results of this is a significant reduction in withdrawal symptoms and cravings. (Herein lies the advantage to those who are committed to having a successful recovery since withdrawal and cravings are two of the biggest risks for relapse).

Teen Drinking and Risk Factors

Teen drinking carries its own set of risk factors. Teens are especially vulnerable to alcohol use and abuse. Their age also requires a unique approach to educating, preventing, and addressing alcohol problems. During April’s Alcohol Awareness Month, we are focusing on ways to recognize alcohol abuse, talk to your teen about it, and help prevent it.

Teen drinking and risk factors

The scary fact is that teens who start using alcohol before the age of fifteen are four times more likely to become alcohol dependent as they get older. This is why education and prevention are so key. A brain compromised from alcohol abuse will cause a teen to miss important developmental lessons, so early intervention is crucial.

Community Drug Alert: U-47700, “Pink” “Pinky” or “U4”

Stronger than heroin but currently legal in most states, U-47700 (also known as “Pinky” “Pink” or “U4” because of the powder’s pinkish hue) is easily available for purchase over the internet, and is often misleadingly marketed as a “research chemical” and “not for human consumption.” It is another opioid in the surge of synthetic drugs that includes bath salts and mock-up ecstasy. Community Drug Alert for "Pink" or "U4"

It is taken alone or mixed with other drugs (like heroin and fentanyl), and in forms ranging from pills to powder to mist.
