Fight Your Addiction with a Neurorecovery Program

Our amino acid IV therapy program (neurorecovery) helps patients fight their addictions by reducing urges and improving memory, mood and vitality.

The program promotes the natural healing of the brain, helping to overcome your addictions with:

  • Alcohol
  • Tobacco (cigarettes)
  • Marijuana
  • Narcotics (prescribed pain drugs)
  • Methamphetamine
  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Methadone
  • Stimulants
  • Drugs related to ADHD or anxiety

Who can particpate in the prgram?

The Neurorecovery program is for patients who are attending or have attended rehabilitation programs in the past, but continue to struggle with addiction. In addition, the program can be helpful for individuals who have used addictive substances recently and wish to stop.

How Does Neurorecovery Work?

Conventional detox methods such as self-restraint (“cold turkey”) or emotional support, assume the brain will fully heal from the drugs and/or alcohol. This is partly correct as the brain will heal some, but the healing is relatively minor.

Neurorecovery is structured to help beat your final steps of addiction by directly addressing the negative chemical changes the substances have caused in your brain.

We combine IV amino acid treatments with oral supplements to help curb cravings and manage detox side effects. After your cravings have decreased, our team focuses on your underlying health issues that may have initially contributed to substance abuse.

How do the IV treatments feel?

The amino acid IV drips are generally well tolerated, as they are comprised of simple amino enzymes and natural co-factors.

Some patients feel better on the first day of treatment. However withdrawal symptoms may occur, such as nausea, headaches, sweating, muscle spasms, constipation, fatigue, etc.; but some patients feel these withdrawal symptoms are less severe when undergoing IV therapy.

By day four, you may feel that your cravings and anxiety have weakened. At this stage in the process some patients notice a new positive outlook on life and overall better mental clarity.

Does neurorecovery have a lasting effect?

Yes, as long as you refrain from alcohol/drug use. It’s rare for patients to repeat IV treatments, however you may return to our clinic for an IV dose when needed.

Backed by evidence-based science, the program continues to restore biochemical balance in the brain and promote neuroreceptor healing.
