Nutritionally Assisted Detox: A natural way to begin treatment

Withdrawal can be a long and painful process. Severe nausea, diarrhea, fatigue, depression and even seizures are all associated with withdrawal from drugs and alcohol. Withdrawal symptoms can be daunting — or even dangerous — to treat at home. For this reason, professional detoxification is often an essential step in the recovery process. After withdrawal symptoms are minimized or eliminated, patients can more easily focus on long-term recovery.

Sovereign Health’s Nutritionally Assisted Detox program, or NAD, is a unique, all-natural rapid detox process that is designed to help individuals detox from substances and fight cravings with the use of NAD supplements. Instead of fighting the brain’s natural healing process, NAD works in tandem to reduce the painful symptoms associated with withdrawal. This natural detox program can be found at one of our rapid detox centers in California.

What causes withdrawal symptoms?

Individuals who pursue sobriety often experience uncomfortable or painful withdrawal symptoms as they wean themselves off their substance of abuse. Withdrawal symptoms vary depending on the drug that is causing the symptoms.

Why? After long-term substance abuse, the brain adapts to the substance in question, reducing the presence of certain neurotransmitters, culling cellular receptors and otherwise changing the way in which brain cells function so that the drug can “fit in” more easily. When the substance in question is no longer available, the brain must struggle to fill the void that the drug left behind. This struggle is what causes withdrawal symptoms. The potential danger associated with withdrawal is also why natural alcohol detox and natural drug detox can be so important.

What is Addiction?

Addiction is a disease that manipulates a person’s sense of reward, motivation, memory and a number of related neurological functions.

What is Nutritionally Assisted Detox?

NAD therapy is a rapid detox process designed to alleviate withdrawal symptoms by flooding the body with natural vitamins, amino acids and other substances given through NAD supplements. These natural chemicals help regulate emotional stress levels, restore mental clarity and jump-start cognitive function. Patients who receive NAD may also experience greater optimism and well-being during the next steps of their recovery process.

This unique program — adjunct to traditional detox — alleviates patients’ symptoms, such as fatigue, anxiety and depression. It regulates emotional stress levels and restores the functioning of mental clarity for those in treatment. Patients then might experience greater well-being or optimism in the next steps of a holistic recovery program, which also jumpstarts cognitive function lost through substance abuse.

How does NAD reduce withdrawal symptoms?

After stopping drug use, the brain eventually re-establishes its old connections and rebuilds lost receptors and neurotransmitters. This is a gradual process that can take anywhere from several days to several weeks. Once this process is completed, withdrawal symptoms disappear.

Rapid drug detox programs work by speeding up this natural healing process. The amino acids, vitamins and other substances provided during this detox treatment help the brain create new connections, build neural receptors and increase the population of neurotransmitters.

Withdrawal symptoms from alcohol and drugs, such as opiates, are reduced by 50 to 60 percent in the first three days, and by 70 to 80 percent by day four.

Nutritionally Assisted Detox at Sovereign Health

The all-natural NAD treatment program for adults aged 18 and older at our San Clemente, California, location includes orally administered amino acid supplements, as well as intravenously administered nutrients and minerals. This includes different alcohol detox vitamins which allow each person to detox from alcohol naturally. An infusion IV therapy — consisting of nicotinic acid supplements and other nutrients — eases the discomforts associated with withdrawal, while an infusion of amino acids, vitamins and minerals meet patients’ nutritional needs.

Our NAD program allows for executive accommodations in a scenic and confidential setting. Our staff and concierge services include:

  • A workspace for laptops and other electronics during detox
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi
  • A registered nurse on call 24/7
  • Comfortable chairs
  • A physician and assistant available for assessments and questions
  • A case manager and patient advocate
  • Blankets, pillows, snacks and meals
  • Transportation between detox center and residential areas

Patients are admitted to Sovereign’s NAD program only after a thorough physical and psychological examination by Sovereign professionals. Our goal is to understand exactly which drugs are causing the withdrawal symptoms — and whether any physical or mental conditions may be exacerbating these symptoms — so that we may provide the best treatment possible.

What our Clients Say!

‘We learned to talk about things in a safe environment & know we won’t be judged because we all have things we have to work towards here.’

Why choose Sovereign Health?

Traditional detox leaves the brain’s healing up to time and chance. NAD therapy directly repairs the damage to the brain’s neurotransmitter receptor systems that chronic substance use caused. Other detox approaches might use potentially addictive medications that could prolong the process or increase the risk of exchanging one addiction for another.

After natural detox, patients at Sovereign have access to a variety of evidence-based treatment programs including cognitive behavioral therapy, group therapy, yoga and meditation. Detox therapy should always be followed by rehabilitation and treatment to decrease the risk of relapse. For more information about our programs, please call our 24/7 helpline.
