Fight Addiction by Connecting

The opposite of addiction is not abstinence – it’s connection. Based on the 2016 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), approximately 20.1 million people in America aged 12 and older have a substance use problem (SAMHSA.gov). Almost half of those individuals (8.2 million) have a serious mental illness (SAMHSA.gov). The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry reports that one in three adults who struggle with drug and alcohol abuse also suffers from depression.

Self-Medication

There are indications that the overuse of legal and illegal drugs may be a side-effect of the self-medication of a variety of mood disorders in order to numb and manage symptoms of depression and anxiety, in addition to dealing with chronic pain.

Ongoing Healing

Withdrawal from opioids can be difficult. Some people choose to stop using “cold turkey” and manage their symptoms at home. Others enter a rapid detox or traditional detox program for intensive treatment. However one chooses to detox, there are several IV treatments that can be useful in the ongoing process from withdrawal to recovery.

Reboot

Treatment Resistant Depression, PTSD, severe anxiety, and addiction have all been theorized, up until recently, to simply be due to chemical imbalances in the brain. But it’s much more complicated than that. Newer research is looking at the electrical signaling of the brain that impacts neurotransmitter concentrations and the role of inflammation on the brain.  With a main infusion of NAD+, nutrient infusions are given to restore and maintain hydration. Vitamin C and ketamine are given to reduce pain and inflammation. In addition, ketamine’s ability to “re-boot” the brain and stimulate the production of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is believed to impact neuroplasticity. This neuroplasticity is what can allow a person to break a repetitive cycle long enough to have a chance to do the impactful work that can put a person on a new path to living.
