Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide, abbreviated NAD, is a co-enzyme (nutrient) found in all living cells. NAD is responsible for over 100 metabolic functions, including the production of ATP (cellular energy), within the body. Stressors naturally depletes the body of this life restoring nutrient. Individuals who suffer from addiction, alcoholism, chemical dependency, and unhealthily relationships are continually exposing themselves to high levels of stress.

Intravenous Administration of Nicotinamide Adenine Donucleotide Significantly Reduces Self Report Craving Ratings Associated with Opiate and Alcohol Withdrawal
IntroductionTreatment of Substance Abuse Disorders continues to challenge clinicians and "cravings" for the abused substance are often impediments to sobriety. Nicotinamide Adenine Donucleotide (NAD) has been used in the past with claims of having anti-craving properties. Previous data from this clinic using a simliar formulation of NAD support the use of NAD as a valid treatment for drug cravings. This pilot study retrospectively examined the anti-craving properties of NAD in a group of 60 patients. Additionally, patients were assessed on severity of cravings and replapse episodes at 12-20 months post treatment.
MethodThe patients are males and females with addictions to primarily opiates or alcohol (N-60). Six patients were omitted due to incomplete data. The treatment Brain Restoration Plus (BR+)™ comprised of IV infusions of NAD and variable PRN medications for an average of 10 consecutive days ranging from 5 to 10 hours daily at a dosage rate 0f 500mg-1500mgs each day. Self-reported craving ratings (0-10 scale) were collected on Day 1 (before starting treatment), Day 5, and Day 10 (last day of treatment). Followup phone surveys were conducted from 12-20 months post treatment (N=27). Patients reported severity of cravings (1-5) and number of relapse episodes at the present time.
- NAD is an effective detox treatment for alcohol and opiate addicts as evidenced by a significant reduction in craving ratings
- NAD was effective in reducing and maintaining the number of relapse episodes, as well as severity of drug cravings.
- NAD shows potential as a long-term therapy in maintaining sobriety through minimizing drug cravings and preventing relapse.
