What is Neurotransmitter Restoration (NTR)?

Editor’s Note: This post is by Tim Stoddart, founder and owner of Sober Nation, a site dedicated to developing content to help people afflicted by addiction. Follow Sober Nation on Twitter.

What-is-NTRAddiction is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. In addiction treatment, you receive counseling and assistance with your emotional and spiritual needs. You begin to heal by talking about your emotions, learning to cope with them, and figuring out ways to change your lifestyle so that recovery is better for you than addiction ever was.

One thing that is severely lacking in addiction treatment, however, is help for the physical part of addiction. Good nutrition, exercise, and plentiful rest are advocated as ways to take care of your body after addiction, but they’re far less focused on or integrated into a program as are ways to heal your mind and spirit.

There are drugs that can be used to ease the physical withdrawal, but the main way your body heals after addiction is with time. To repair the severe damage that addiction can do to your brain, you have to wait. It can take years before your brain chemistry and functioning return to normal, and sometimes damage is permanent.

However, now there is a method of treating the physical damage from addiction, and it’s becoming more popular. It’s called Neurotransmitter Restoration (NTR), and it was developed by Dr. William Hitt many years ago. In the past several years, several rehabs have developed their own NTR programs with the goals of quickly repairing damage to the brain’s neurotransmitters and neurons that would otherwise take years to repair themselves.

Introduction

This study, which was presented at the Society for Neuroscience, evaluated the effectiveness of using Neurotransmitter Restoration (NTR) for the treatment of substance abuse. Previous research had shown the negative effect substance abuse has on the brain (particularly, neurotransmitter receptor dysregulation). NTR aims to rebalance neurotransmitter function in the brain, alleviating physiological and psychological withdrawal symptoms.

Method

The study consisted of 40 patients, male and female, with substance abuse problems including opiates, psychostimulants, benzodiazepines, marijuana and alcohol. Data was collected on day 1 (prior to initial NTR treatment), during the 10-day NTR protocol, and the ten days after NTR was administered. On a scale of 1-10, patients rated: overall affect, cravings, negative affect, stress levels, and reward (potential for abuse of treatment).

Results

The study found that NTR significantly reduces cravings, stress, depression and anxiety, and improves overall well-being. The research also found that NTR shows no indication for potential abuse.

Stress and Addiction: How Are They Really Related?

Stress disrupts normal dopamine neuron function putting an individual at risk for addiction and relapseIt makes sense to us that stress and addiction go hand-in-hand, but how are they really related? There is more than a decade of research available that demonstrates that changes in the synapses of the brain’s reward center relate to addiction behavior. Certainly, most of us who have worked in the addiction field for any length of time have witnessed the strong correlation between stress and an individual’s risk for addiction and relapse. So what is really happening in the body that makes stress such a precursor for addiction and relapse? Read more
