How do NAD+ and ketamine therapy help drug addiction?

Dr. Liang recommends NAD+ and ketamine infusion therapy in order to address:

Post-acute withdrawal syndrome (PAWS)
PAWS can affect you weeks, months, and even years after you stop using the drug. Symptoms include depression, anxiety, irritability, sleep disturbances, and impaired cognition. By rapidly creating new neural connections, ketamine and NAD+ combination therapy dramatically eliminates or reduces these symptoms.

Cravings
The new pathways established by your drug use continue to demand more of the drug, which leads to cravings. Ketamine and NAD+ combination therapy disrupts these pathways and creates new ones.

Ketamine works quickly on these problems, sometimes after just one treatment, as new connections are formed in your brain that bypasses the addiction. Ketamine and NAD+ therapy is especially useful in helping you maintain your sobriety, leading a life that’s free from the bonds of drug addiction.

Detoxification
Similar to alcohol addiction, ketamine and NAD+ combination therapy are extremely effective in the detoxification process from stimulants, opiates, benzodiazepines, and kratom. NAD+ is especially effective at reducing the oxidative stress at the cellular level that occurs during detoxification.

a. The cortex is the outer layer of gray matter, responsible for decision-making, thinking, learning and willpower. You can treat the effects of addiction on the cortex with counseling.

b. The limbic region is the internal portion of the brain, responsible for rewards, pleasure and basic drives and urges. You can treat the effects of addiction on the limbic region with medication.

Drug addiction is a chronic disease that compels people to use drugs in a way that’s harmful to their health. The reason this happens is that a drug addiction rewires your brain, creating new pathways that are designed solely for drug use.

These pathways are created after your brain experiences the pleasurable effects of a drug and it adjusts itself to receive more. This, in turn, prompts you to use more of the drug in an effort to satisfy the bottomless pit that is addiction.

Drug addiction is a very serious disease that has physical, social, and mental health consequences.

Drug addiction carries with it two components: dependency and addiction. The dependency aspect is when your body physically needs the drug and goes into withdrawal when it’s not available. The addiction component leads to obsessive cravings and uncontrolled use. It is also associated with behaviors that can be destructive and life threatening. Combined, these two components often lead to:

• Physical withdrawal, such as the shakes or flu-like symptoms, or worse
• The inability to control use
• Poor performance at work or school
• Isolation
• Choosing your drug of choice over other activities
• Financial issues
• Difficulty in relationships with friends and family
• Depression and Suicide

There’s very little in your life that drug addiction doesn’t affect, which is why treatments designed for long-term abstinence work best.
How do NAD+ and ketamine therapy help drug addiction?

Addiction is just a way of trying to get at something else. Something bigger. Call it transcendence if you want, but it’s like a rat in a maze. We all want the same thing. We all have this hole. The thing you want offers relief, but it’s a trap.
