NAD Therapy


NAD Therapy for addiction can help your body to overcome physical drug and alcohol dependence and withdrawal symptoms. At Marina Harbor Drug Detox and Alcohol Detox provides NAD Therapy to help combat withdrawal symptoms and help individuals begin the path to recovery.


What Is NAD Therapy?

NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is an enzyme that is found in every living cell. While the body automatically produces NAD, as we begin to age, the less our bodies produce the molecule. The lack of NAD in our bodies can create aging, illness, and disease.

Now used in therapeutic processes for anti-aging and promoting wellness and health, studies from the National Institute of Health have found that NAD can also be used to help maintain healthy organized and restore neurological symptoms to optimal functioning. NAD Therapy is administered through IV therapy, where the body receives infusions with different vitamins and supplements. These holistic supplements can help mitigate uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms and promote feelings of wellness. In addition, NAD Therapy can help speed up the body’s healing process from the toll of addiction and substance use disorder.

Who Is NAD Therapy For

Those who are feeling decreased energy levels, mentally impaired or constantly fatigued can benefit from NAD Therapy. In addition, for those going through drug withdrawal and alcohol withdrawal, NAD Therapy has been shown to restore cells and regenerate opioid receptors in the brain, often reducing cravings and symptoms. NAD Therapy is a recommended resource for those looking for a holistic method of healing and committed to long-term recovery. While NAD Therapy isn’t a quick fix to addiction in itself, it is an extremely useful tool.

Benefits of NAD Therapy

NAD Therapy has a multitude of positive benefits not only that impact the physical, but the mental, emotional, and psychological. 

Improves Brain Health

NAD cells help the brain’s functioning by helping cells regenerate themselves and guards against damage from illness or disease. Overall, NAD Therapy can improve your brain’s functioning, mental clarity, and memory. 

Repairs Cells

Substance abuse creates a toll on the body. NAD Therapy can restore these cells by repairing DNA damage and reverse any damaged cells that may have come from substance use disorder. This helps restore depleted energy levels and improves overall functioning. 

Alcohol and Drug Withdrawal Symptoms

NAD Therapy can help speed up the detox process by alleviating withdrawal symptoms and flushing the harmful chemicals and toxins out of an individual’s body, ultimately kickstarting the healing process. Restoring depleted NAD enzymes can also help to regulate anxiety and depression from substance use disorder.
