Addiction Treatment & IV Therapy Q & A

How is addiction therapy prescribed?

Every brain is unique. If you come to the Ghaly Center with concerns about addiction, Dr. Ghaly recommends neurotransmitter and brain performance testing. This helps him understand the imbalances in your brain that may have made you vulnerable to addiction in the first place. He can also observe how addiction has changed programming in your brain cells and negatively affected the balance of neurotransmitters, which are chemicals that control mood and impulse control and communicate with the rest of your body.

What therapy is available for addiction?

Dr. Ghaly uses NAD IV therapy. NAD, short for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, is a chemical co-enzyme that helps structure, repair, and remodel every cell in your body. You need a constant supply of this specialized enzyme, but addiction to alcohol and drugs depletes it and interferes with production and communication of other brain chemicals known as neurotransmitters.

NAD replenishes drained enzymes and restores balance in the neurotransmitters. It basically resets your brain to fight the reprogramming brought on by addiction. You begin to feel like yourself again — you have the clarity and sobriety of your life before addiction.

How is NAD IV therapy administered?

NAD IV therapy is administered via an intravenous stream, like any IV. You usually get one infusion daily for 10 days, but Dr. Ghaly creates a precise, individualized plan for each case. You relax as you receive the infusion slowly, usually over eight hours.

You notice the effects of the IV from four to eight days. However, it’s important to complete all prescribed IV sessions to flood your system with NAD. You may need periodic retreatments to keep your brain cells, enzymes, and neurotransmitters in balance.

What are the benefits of NAD IV therapy?

NAD IV therapy works relatively quickly and without side effects. It’s especially effective for alcohol and opiate addiction when you stay committed to the protocol. A complete infusion process, usually at least 10 days, minimizes physical cravings and withdrawal symptoms. However, it cannot address the psychological reasons for addiction, which must be addressed in conjunction with the therapy.
