Yes. It is completely safe. Our licensed nurses work under the supervision of a licensed physician who approves a customized treatment plan and reviews each patient’s progress. The intravenous solutions are made by a U.S. licensed compounding pharmacy.
Chemical dependence, chronic stress related disorders, and neurodegenerative diseases destroy healthy functioning of the brain. Rebalancing the brain requires detoxification and cell function stabilization. BR+NAD™ is an IV protocol that administers a co-enzyme of vitamin B3, along with oral combinations of amino acids, vitamins and minerals. This process renders the patient nearly or completely free of cravings and withdrawal symptoms. BR+NAD™ therapy at Springfield Wellness Center is a detox process based upon the patient’s history and needs delivered in an outpatient setting. Specially trained nurses under the supervision of a licensed physician administer each treatment.
Based on an accurately completed patient questionnaire, BR+NAD™ can simultaneously treat addictions to many combinations of prescribed or illicit substances, including prescription drugs, recreational drugs, and alcohol.
The disease of addiction is a chronic illness just like diabetes. There is no cure to date. BR+NAD™ is a safe, effective management tool.
No. If the patient uses any mood-altering substances after treatment is complete, the brain’s chemical balance will be altered and physical cravings will likely return. However, if a patient does relapse, a simple one- or two-day booster will be sufficient for restoration provided the patient returns for a booster as soon as possible after using or if cravings return.
After treatment the patient is no longer physically addicted and may certainly resume a normal life; however, an addicted person will typically not have been leading a normal life for some time. In order to rejoin the world successfully, a variety of aftercare coping strategies can be helpful. We will be happy to refer you to any of the following:
- AA, NA, and/or other 12-step program
- Individual psychotherapy
- Group psychotherapy
- Family psychotherapy
- Nutrition programs
- Exercise programs
- Affinity and other social groups
- Residential and/or intensive outpatient programs
Call (225) 395-8222 to schedule an assessment appointment. During the assessment, a questionnaire and the patient’s current history and current medical status are reviewed. In some cases, a brief physical and blood tests may be required. The fee is $175.
The BR+NAD™ treatment at Springfield Wellness Center is an outpatient program.
