NAD+ Frequently Asked Questions
If you’re interested in NAD+ programs at New Spring Wellness Center, here are some commonly asked questions, but we are here to help and answer any more you may have. Contact us today to take the first step toward a whole new life!
How do I begin?
Call 573-693-1977 and speak with one of our friendly staff to schedule an assessment appointment. During the assessment, a questionnaire and the patient’s current history and current medical status are reviewed. In some cases, a brief physical and blood tests may be required.
How long is treatment and what’s a typical day like?
Treatment is 5-14 days depending on the condition. This is an outpatient center so patients arrive to New Spring Wellness Center in the morning each day of treatment. Patients can return home or to their lodging when the prescribed IV drip for that day is complete.
The duration of treatment the first 1-2 days can be 8-10 hours. The remaining days typically last 4-6 hours. Upon arrival, an IV will be started by a licensed RN and infusion begins. Our center is equipped with individual patient rooms where you can rest in a comfortable recliner. You may watch TV, read, listen to music, use your own computer on our free WI-FI , or simply rest. Each room also comes equipped with a small desk and a convertible sofa bed. The sofa bed can comfortable seat an accompanying family member or serve as a resting place for you.
There is a community room in the center for gathering over lunch or a game or puzzle. Just out the back door is a seating area for a little fresh air and sunshine. We will provide a healthy lunch and a variety of healthy snacks will be available.
Is NAD+ a cure?
No, it is not a cure for chronic disease. Neuro Recover is a safe, effective management tool. In a clinical study, NAD+ was found to be 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. But if the patient uses any mood-altering substances after treatment is complete, the brain’s chemical balance will be altered and physical cravings will likely return. However, if a patient does relapse, a simple one- or two-day booster will be sufficient for restoration provided the patient returns for a booster as soon as possible after using or if cravings return.
Is treatment safe?
Yes. It is completely safe. Our licensed nurses work under the supervision of a licensed physician who approves a customized treatment plan and reviews each patient’s progress. The intravenous solutions are made by a U.S. licensed compounding pharmacy.
What if I am coming from out of town?
We care about you and want to make your treatment experience the best possible. Hospitality is our specialty and we would love to help settle in for a while. Our beautiful lake area is vacationland for many surrounding areas. We are within 8 hours from IIllinois, Indiana, Kansas, Arkansas, Tennessee, Oklahoma and Iowa.
What is Neuro Recover?
Chemical dependence, chronic stress related disorders, and neurodegenerative diseases destroy healthy functioning of the brain. Re-balancing the brain requires detoxification and cell function stabilization. Neuro Recover is an IV protocol that administers a co-enzyme of vitamin B3 as well as simple amino acids.
In the case of addictions, this process renders the patient nearly or completely free of cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Neuro Recover IV therapy is an all-natural individualized treatment based upon the patient’s history and needs. Specially trained nurses under the supervision of a licensed physician administer each treatment in the warm and welcoming environment of our outpatient center.
What is the cost and do you accept health insurance?
Free initial consultation Cost and the number of days determined are determined on a customized individual basis after the initial consultation. The number of days is consecutive including weekends. Generally treatment is 3-14 days depending on the condition. We are primarily a private pay medical service. Payment is expected at time of service by cash or credit card. Personal checks must post as cleared prior to initiation of treatment.
What is the success rate?
After treatment, 90% of patients report no cravings, increased clarity of mind, better problem-solving ability, improved focus and concentration, increased energy, and improved mood. Compare this to 40-60% success rate for inpatient programs according to the National Institute for Drug Abuse. Outpatient programs have < 60% success rate.
What should I bring or how should I prepare?
Please wear comfortable clothes including a short sleeve shirt. You may choose to bring books, laptop, etc. In the case of addicts, we strongly suggest that you get rid of any “stashes” and have a healthy supportive person available to monitor you during your first few nights as cravings may still be present.
