NAD+ Therapy

At The Sanctuary at Sedona, we work to create the optimal treatment experience for our clients. By blending science-based methods with holistic alternative therapies, we help you heal — body, mind, energy and spirit. IV drip therapies are a recent addition to the realm of addiction recovery and a useful treatment for emotional and mental health issues as well.

NAD+ therapy is an innovative treatment that helps prepare your body for the recovery process by supplementing this naturally produced enzyme directly into your bloodstream, thus boosting its naturally restorative properties. The Sanctuary offers NAD+, Ketamine-Assisted Therapy and Vitamin IV Therapy as an add-on with additional cost to our holistic 30-day, residential drug and trauma recovery program. All NAD+ therapy treatments are offered through our licensed on-campus medical clinic.


What Is NAD+ Therapy?

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is a co-enzyme that naturally occurs in your body. In rehab, this substance is extremely beneficial for nourishing your body and brain and preparing you for treatment. NAD+ can enhance the process of healing chronic conditions like drug and alcohol addiction, depression, PTSD and anxiety.

When taken in higher doses, it can also promote health in a variety of ways, including:

  • Increasing your natural energy stores
  • Improving brain function
  • Repairing DNA
  • Helping your cells communicate more efficiently
  • Cleansing your body and brain of toxins
  • Boosting your immunity

Taking NAD+ intravenously is ideal, as this is the most efficient way for your body to absorb it. We offer this in our new Brain Restoration Facility along with other brain and immune system upgrade protocols. The delivery system and optimal dosage of NAD+ is vital for its efficacy. We use the highest quality NAD+ sourced from the compound pharmacy recommended by one of the pioneers of NAD+ therapy in the United States, Dr. Richard Mestayer

We have found NAD, and other custom blended IVs, have helped clients with post-acute withdrawal symptoms, mental clarity, improved sleep, nervous system regulation, and higher energy levels which improves the treatment experience and outcomes. The better you feel sooner and the clearer your mind is, the deeper you will be able to go in your treatment experience. 

In addition to the 4-day Jumpstart Program for people in acute distress, we also offer NAD IV treatments throughout the 30-day program.

How Does NAD+ Therapy Work?

During NAD+ Therapy, one of our providers will place NAD+ into an IV and slowly drip it into your bloodstream. Since the co-enzyme bypasses the stomach, it will go directly to the brain for a high absorption rate.

Receiving NAD+ Therapy provides a boost of energy from natural sources and can help you look and feel your best. Some of the many benefits of NAD+ IV therapy include:

  • Reduces withdrawal symptoms: NAD+ IV therapy can help flush drugs and other substances out of your body to reduce withdrawal symptoms and cravings.
  • Supports your body’s natural healing process: NAD+ can aid in repairing DNA damage from excessive drug and alcohol use. Additionally, this co-enzyme can aid in naturally replenishing neurotransmitters to help you feel more alert.
  • Bypasses the digestive system for a higher absorption rate: By going directly into your bloodstream, our NAD+ Therapy ensures you have a higher absorption rate. Unlike other oral supplements, which may break down in the stomach, our treatment allows for maximum effect and no waste.

What to Expect When Undergoing NAD+ Therapy Treatment

The NAD+ Therapy process is very simple, and many clients find it relaxing. When you undergo NAD+ Therapy at The Sanctuary, it will involve the following steps:

1. Choosing Your NAD+ Treatment

We will begin by discussing your symptoms and which of our NAD+ therapies will offer the most benefits. For example, we may offer our detox IV therapy or our NAD+ for addiction. As we discuss your options, we invite you to ask questions about each treatment’s specific vitamins and supplements.

2. Treatment Review From Our Doctor

As you select your treatment, one of our doctors will review your choice and your medical history to determine if this is the best option for your healing journey. We will look at your current needs and your medical history to decide if this treatment will have the best chance of success.

3. Administer the Treatment

Once we determine which of our treatment options is the best for you, a qualified team member will administer the treatment. Our team is friendly, and we will help you feel comfortable throughout the treatment process.

NAD+ Treatment at The Sanctuary

NAD+ is growing in popularity and becoming increasingly available. Taking NAD+ intravenously is ideal, as this is the most efficient way for your body to absorb it. We offer this in our new Brain Restoration Facility along with other brain and immune system upgrade protocols. The delivery system and optimal dosage of NAD+ is vital for its efficacy. We use the highest quality NAD+ sourced from the compound pharmacy recommended by one of the pioneers of NAD+ therapy in the United States, Dr. Richard Mestayer.

What makes NAD+ therapy at The Sanctuary different is the way it’s integrated into our holistic treatment program. Our clients benefit from:

  • An exceptionally high-quality and carefully sourced product
  • Surrounding support designed to make the most of your treatment experience
  • Our physical location’s lovely and therapeutic surroundings
  • How NAD+ is used with other brain restoration protocols

At The Sanctuary, we include NAD+ treatment as part of our 4-Day “Jump-Start” Detox Program. Our innovative program enables incoming clients to get a head start on the healing process before they enter our 30-day holistic recovery program.

Our “Jump-Start” program aims to help people feel and operate at their best as soon as possible so they can get more out of their time with us. Unlike other programs in which you may still feel foggy after completing your program, our methods help you clear your nervous system.

We work with you for four to six hours each day to ensure you get the most out of our 4-Day “Jump-Start” Detox Program. Each day, you will participate in IV NAD+ therapy, group mediationprivate bodywork and other healing programs. 

If we feel NAD+ IV treatment will continue to help you on your healing journey, we will continue to use it as one of our healing modalities once you begin regular treatment after the “Jump-Start” session. 

What is Residential NAD+ Treatment?

NAD+ infusion is just one of the ways we leverage cutting-edge science to effectively heal addiction, depression, anxiety and PTSD. Our non-12 Step treatment approach places a strong focus on upregulating your body and brain. We do this by encouraging cellular repair. Residential NAD+ treatment and other forms of IV therapy support neuroplasticity, neurogenesis and overall brain upregulation via:

  • An intensive, recovery-focused nutrition plan
  • A personalized and continually adjusted supplement regimen, prescribed by our Functional Medicine doctor
  • Meditation, yoga, sound healing and energetic therapies to rebalance your brain waves
  • Biofeedback such as Heartmath and Brain mapping
  • Addiction science education: Epigenetics, Neuroplasticity and how to be Recovered
  • Immersion in nature, which calms your nervous system and supports your progress

We combine natural therapies like NAD+ with a strong clinical component along with other physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of care to give your system the best chance of change.

A Fully Integrated Experience

Whereas most treatment centers simply use NAD+ during detox, we fully incorporate it into our comprehensive program. You’ll receive NAD+ right on campus in our own state-of-the-art IV drip room, so you remain immersed in all the healing benefits of our natural environment and therapeutic community.

Our program is synergistic. That is, its transformative power doesn’t come from any one aspect, but from all the therapies and experiences that shape your journey here. This level of depth is what allows our clients to progress in ways they never have before. And NAD+ therapy is a tool we use to help your body and brain become more receptive to all areas of treatment.

Repairing the Brain

NAD+ therapy is one of the ways our program supports the creation of mitochondrial upregulation, new cells, neuropathways and networks in your brain. This works in conjunction with other brain-restoration treatments, such as:

  • Other IV vitamin infusions
  • A comprehensive supplement plan
  • Transcranial low-level laser therapy
  • Hypoxia therapy
  • Amethyst bio-mat
  • Lymphatic drainage therapy
  • Organic, alkalizing, non-GMO, non-dairy, non-gluten delicious nutrition plan

Types of NAD+ IV Therapy We Offer

The coenzyme contained in the NAD+ IV therapy drip is central to your body’s metabolic processes, making it a key player in the work to help repair and regulate other cellular functions. Our IV NAD+ treatments deliver these incredible benefits directly into your bloodstream. Unlike oral supplements, which aren’t always fully absorbed, NAD+ IV therapy bypasses your digestive system. That means complete absorption and optimal effectiveness.

Whether you’re struggling with addiction and going through detox or you want to improve your emotional outlook and find relief from mental health symptoms, here are some NAD+ therapies available at The Sanctuary.

NAD+ Therapy for Addiction

Drug and alcohol use depletes your body’s natural NAD+ supply. And as a result, it’s not able to convert food into energy as efficiently, making you feel fatigued and undernourished. Supplementing your NAD+ levels helps reduce withdrawal symptoms and eases pain and inflammation from substance abuse. This both aids your initial detox process and helps restore you to optimum health.

NAD+ Therapy for Drug Detox

Detox can make you feel like your body is fighting itself. The initial process of getting drugs or alcohol out of your system is characterized by extreme discomfort and often overwhelming withdrawal symptoms. NAD+ therapy can help see you through the detox process in a few ways.

These include:

  • Flushing out any toxins remaining in your system
  • Easing the uncomfortable side-effects of detox
  • Reducing pain associated with opioid and alcohol withdrawal

It’s important to note that NAD+ is meant to complement the detox process and is not a stand-alone detox method. And with or without NAD+, detox is only a preliminary step. This should be followed up with comprehensive addiction treatment for full and lasting recovery.

NAD+ Therapy for Alcoholism

Many people with alcohol addiction find NAD+ to be very helpful in curbing their cravings. There’s also a link between lower NAD+ levels and the development of alcohol addiction. Research shows that people with less naturally occurring NAD+ may be more likely to experience addictions and co-occurring mental health disorders.

NAD+ Therapy for Depression

NAD+ improves symptoms of depression. That’s because it reduces the cellular damage caused by free radicals in your body, which contributes to depressive symptoms. It also aids the removal of toxic metals from your body, which are linked to depression. And in addition to relieving your symptoms, it helps your body heal from the long-term effects of depression, which can include pain sensitivity, digestive issues and cardiovascular risks.

NAD+ Therapy for PTSD

Trauma and PTSD force us into a constant state of fight-or-flight. When we’re in this state, our body is unable to fully absorb nutrients and new information. NAD+ helps with:

  • Improving sleep and restoring circadian rhythms
  • Lifting the mental fog associated with PTSD
  • Relieving symptoms of chronic stress

NAD+ Therapy for Anxiety

Anxiety also depletes your body’s natural stores of NAD+. Replenishing them intravenously supports your nervous system during treatment and promotes healthy brain function. It also helps repair the cellular damage caused by being in a constant state of stress. NAD+ therapy works in conjunction with other clinical and holistic therapies offered at The Sanctuary to restore your entire system to balance.

NAD+ Therapy Side Effects

Your body produces NAD+ on its own, and NAD+ IV therapy is considered safe for regular use. Many people take NAD+ for its natural health benefits, even when they’re not treating an addiction or mental health issue.

As with all therapies offered at The Sanctuary, our IV drips are conducted under rigorous clinical supervision. Our program undergoes frequent quality assurance reviews and complies with the guidelines of our governing health authorities.
