NAD+ infusion therapy is emerging as a promising complementary treatment for addiction, offering several advantages over traditional approaches:


## Advantages of NAD+ Infusions


- Rapidly reduces cravings and withdrawal symptoms. A study found significant reductions in craving, anxiety, and depression scores after NAD+ infusions in 50 addiction patients.


- Helps detoxify the body by promoting elimination of drugs and metabolites. 100% of a subset of patients tested negative for illicit drugs midway through NAD+ infusions.


- Repairs cellular and brain damage caused by substance abuse by improving energy production and DNA repair mechanisms.


- Restores proper brain function and neurotransmitter regulation, boosting energy levels during recovery.


- Provides a natural, non-invasive approach with minimal side effects compared to some pharmaceutical treatments.


- Effects can last 12-20 months post-treatment, reducing relapse rates.


## Comparison to Traditional Treatments


Traditional addiction treatments like counseling, behavioral therapies, and medications (e.g. naltrexone, buprenorphine) primarily target the psychological and behavioral aspects of addiction. While essential, they may not directly address the physiological impact of long-term substance abuse on cellular processes and brain chemistry.


NAD+ infusion therapy complements these approaches by replenishing depleted NAD+ levels and facilitating cellular repair and restoration. It can be used as an adjunct to psychotherapy and other treatments to manage acute withdrawal symptoms and cravings more effectively.


Unlike some pharmaceutical options that may interfere with dopamine regulation, NAD+ is considered a safe, non-invasive treatment with minimal side effects when administered appropriately.


While more research is needed, current evidence suggests NAD+ infusions can be a valuable addition to comprehensive addiction treatment programs by directly targeting the physiological effects of substance abuse and promoting overall recovery.
