Because benzos change the way your brain behaves, quitting benzo use without help can be difficult, if not impossible. Over time, as your body becomes dependent on benzos, it begins behaving as if it needs benzos to function. In this regard, benzos are treated like food or water—vital for life, and something the body will do anything to get.
This is why it’s so hard to stop using benzos. Almost as soon as you quit, benzos begin leaving the body. This is a good thing—a necessary step toward sobriety. But while it happens, your body protests the departure and begins a process called withdrawal. Symptoms of withdrawal can be intense and are designed to convince you. You can neither function nor survive without benzos. You may feel depressed, anxious, or hopeless. You may suffer intense pain, insomnia, nausea, vomiting, or other medical symptoms.
The good news is that, under medical supervision, detox is not dangerous—only painful. It only lasts a few days. And once it’s done, you never have to do it again. If you can just get through the detox process, you’ll find that your journey to sobriety becomes much easier.
One of the reasons detox is so hard is that your brain and body chemistry change during the detox process. Regaining control over these changes can make it easier. That’s where our NAD/BR+ intravenous (IV) drips come in. NAD is a coenzyme that is vital to many reactions in your cells. Without it, your brain and body may not function correctly.
The problem is that addiction is linked to low levels of NAD. During detox, NAD levels may dip even lower. The goal of our NAD drips is to restore your brain to a healthy state, making detox easier and supporting your brain to recover from the process of addiction. That’s why we call our program brain restoration therapy plus (NAD/BR+). We offer both brain restoration and the support you need to help you get sober.
Restoring your brain may also address many of the underlying factors that led to your addiction, including anxiety, depression, and feelings of inadequacy. That’s because restoring NAD levels may help brain neurotransmitters work more effectively. These chemicals help your brain send and receive chemicals. So by keeping them in good working order, we may be able to help your brain work well, too. And you’ll need a brain in fighting shape to begin and complete the process of detox. This allows you to do the hard work of detox and recovery.
