Substance and medication abuse treatment
Medication and substance abuse has become a significant part of life, affecting our families, our country and us. When somebody in the family is affected by drug or medication abuse, or excessive use, everybody is affected.
What makes somebody seek help? Usually pressure from outside, like family or friends, legal problems, internal issues such as obvious health problems, or insight, realizing it is time to make a change in your behavior. Whatever it may be, you need to make the choice to seek the best treatment available for you and your family.
The conventional approach is based on a one size fits all model, a Disease Management Model which implies that you cannot get completely healed, but offers to temporarily reduce symptoms through medication or psychotherapy.
The goal of the holistic approach to substance and medication elimination is to help you become medication and substance free returning to a normal lifestyle without obsessive drug seeking thoughts. We achieve our goals by applying an individualized treatment approach, selecting from multiple treatment modalities, depending on your personal needs and means.
Drug withdrawal and detoxification can be easy. One of our magic tools is NAD (Nicotinomide Adenine Dinucleotide). NAD is a naturally occurring chemical derived from vitamin B3, niacin. It is applicable in any addiction, making withdrawal painless. NAD can be administered intravenously, requiring 10 hour per day treatment for 10 days. But by administering NAD as a nasal spray, treatment can be extended for weeks or months. It allows patients to get off any opioids, like heroin, or Suboxone; stimulants, like cocaine or Ritalin; benzodiazepines like Xanax or Klonopin in a way that minimizes withdrawal symptoms. Conventional methods such as the Ashton Method of getting off benzodiazepines without the use of any supplements, by just cutting the dose of benzodiazepines, is quite cumbersome and painful.

Many patients turn to drug use and abuse due to emotional traumas. We use advanced energy-psychology methods to resolve psychological traumas. Energy balancing, acupuncture and homeopathy support build emotional resilience.
Changes in life style and diet, supplementation with herbs, vitamins, minerals and nutrients helps control symptoms of anxiety, depression and insomnia. Physical obstacles, such as chronic pain, obesity, hormonal imbalances, gastrointestinal issues, hidden infections and parasites also contribute to instability. These factors are eliminated and resolved.
Emptiness created by a drug free lifestyle also must be addressed. Patients are guided in the process of making healthy choices using positive psychology, meditation, and yoga and are steered toward choosing healthy relationships.
