A medical release with current lab results from the patient’s primary care physician is required prior to treatment.
An intake assessment is conducted at the Center by a clinically trained staff person. This includes assessing the patient’s medical history and reviewing blood tests in order to determine an individualized treatment plan. Treatment is then scheduled.
The medical staff administers NAD in an individually formulated dosage based upon each patients individual drug history. The protocol for addiction treatment is ten days, but may run longer for certain drug or drug-combination addictions. The protocol for PTSD, depression and/or anxiety disorders are either generally four or six days.
Individual and/or family therapy is a valuable part of treatment, depending upon the patient’s history and needs. Typically, therapy with a licensed mental health professional begins on or after the third day of the start of the NAD treatment.
Following discharge from the program, patients return to the Center for a 30, 60 and 90 day follow-up assessments.
NOTE: Treatment is provided on an outpatient basis—patients do not stay overnight at Brain Restoration Wellness Center. However, the program includes room and board during each patient’s stay between two sites will be provided daily.

What is NAD?
NAD is a detoxification and brain restoration protocol that involves the coordinated, integrated use of intravenous and oral nutritional supplements (vitamin metabolites, including co-factors) to help restore brain function. The treatment is administered by physicians and nurses using established therapeutic approaches to detoxification, as well as traditional methods for treating various disorders. NAD will detox the addict with minimal to no withdrawal and remove the craving.
We are a team of licensed professionals dedicated to helping each patient succeed thru NAD treatment. Our staff includes physicians, counselors, therapists and nurses, all working to ensure the long-term recovery and health of each patient.
