How to Quit Drugs and Alcohol with NAD Therapy

A New Year with Better Solutions: How to Quit Drugs and Alcohol with NAD Therapy How to Quit Drugs and Alcohol with NAD Therapy                          

It’s not surprising that many of us in the wellness industry see a spike in clientele numbers this time of year. This is when resolutions are planned, promises made, help sought, and hope held. Unfortunately, for many of those wishing to overcome their struggles with drugs and alcohol, the long-term success rate with traditional care is quite low.

Because substance abuse is a “biopsychosocial” problem, it must be addressed on multiple levels. NAD therapy like our NTR Brain Restoration plays a crucial role in addressing the physical aspect of addiction. By restoring brain function and rebalancing chemistry, NAD therapy allows for a detox that has fewer withdrawal symptoms. It also significantly reduces cravings, which helps protect against relapse. Because the brain is getting what it needs at a cellular level, NAD therapy can help reduce the stress, anxiety and depression that can also accompany the situation.

Here are a few tips to help you rethink how to quit drugs and alcohol:

  1. Understand that there isn’t one way, and someone else’s path might not be right for you. You have to find out what works for you. Keep in mind this might take more than one shot and that relapsing doesn’t mean a successful recovery is out of reach.
  2. You have to do it for YOU. First and foremost, you have to be the reason for your change. You can’t try to quit because your wife wants you to or your brother. You have to quit because you want to.
  3. Address all aspects. If you keep finding yourself back at square one, understand that this is a complex issue with many variables. Dr. Margaret Ann McCann gets it right when she refers to this problem as being “biopsychosocial”. You need to address it on multiple levels. This is why we use NAD therapy (NTR) as a first step. It immediately addresses the physical problem and relieves cravings. This makes one better prepared to learn ways and develop tools to manage the particular challenges that you face on a daily basis and in the larger scheme of life. Leave no rock unturned!
  4. Lastly, seek the advice of a specialist. Even if you just have questions, there are people specially trained to help you figure out what’s going to work best for you. There could be underlying issues (physical, mental, etc.) that could be contributing to this problem and need to be addressed as well. Regardless, if you want to really walk away this time, have someone help you figure out which direction to head.
