NAD+ ( Nicotinamide Riboside Dinucleotide) has been used successfully for acute detoxification since the 1950s. Since Springfield Wellness Center in Louisiana brought attention to the success of IV NAD+ for detoxification in the US. It has since grown exponentially in popularity over the last 15 years for both drug treatment and wellness indications.
NAD + was used in South Africa and Mexico for years and gained a following for its impressive results in assisting in detox for alcohol and opiates, but NAD was eclipsed in this country when methadone was promoted in the 1970s.
Located in Arroyo Grande, CA, Ken Starr MD was one of the early physicians who trained In Springfield and brought NAD+ to California in 2014. Since then, the clinic has become the longest-running NAD+ clinic on the West Coast and has successfully detoxed hundreds of patients off opiates, benzodiazepines, stimulants, and antidepressants.
NAD Infusions are popular worldwide. The infusions are promoted for wellness, longevity, and offering mental clarity. The Ken Starr MD Wellness Group has administered NAD infusions for general wellness indications like dementia, fatigue, chronic stress, and brain fog, as well as substance abuse and dependence.
