Detoxing with NAD is the Future

Imagine the freedom of getting off of drugs or alcohol with little or no withdrawals.  With the help of The NAD MD, you can experience a very comfortable drug detoxification process while in a private ‘home-like’ setting and under the watchful care of our skilled clinical staff.  NAD allows detoxing individuals to get well:

  • Faster
  • In greater comfort
  • With less cravings

Many people report that after about 10 days of detoxing with the aid of NAD, they feel as though they had never even used their drug of choice.

The Most Important Substance in the Body for Detoxification

NAD is naturally the most important chemical that aids detoxification in the body. NAD can be used for other detoxifications (poisons, toxins, heavy metals). NAD provides the energy to the cell that allows it to detoxify.

The NAD is taken intravenously (from an IV) in one of our comfortable offices in the San Diego or Orange County area.  Dr. Milgram is also a Certified Prevention Specialist (CCPS) and trained to provide addiction counseling  during assessment and throughout the process.

More Intensive Rehabilitation at Present Moments

We also can provide the NAD infusions as part of residential treatment at Present Moments Recovery, one of Southern California’s top residential rehab programs.

More About NAD and the Treatment of Addiction

NAD is a relatively recent breakthrough in the treatment of addiction and we have had incredible results facilitating drug and alcohol detoxifications with the help of NAD.

NAD offers three game-changing benefits over conventional detox and rehab programs:

  • Detoxes safely and requires no other addictive substances to relieve withdrawal symptoms.
  • Blocks cravings as early as day 2 or 3 of treatment (depending on patient history).
  • Restores healthy brain function: memory, concentration, clarity, optimism, and more.

Solid Footing for Long-Term Sobriety

As many people know, the rate of relapse is very high for those recovering from a substance use disorder, and many substance addicted individuals resist treatment because they not only fear the discomfort and the cravings for the drug of choice, but long-term recovery is an overwhelming proposition due to their ingrained habits.

Not only does Dr. Milgram have the highest level of certification as a California Certified Prevention Specialist (CCPS), we can also have your detoxification facilitated in the comfortable, ‘home-like’ atmosphere of San Diego’s top clinical drug rehab program Present Moments Recovery.  Present moment recovery is San Diego’s leaving drug rehab for the treatment of addictions like alcoholism or prescription drugs misuse (PDM).

Many of our detox clients continue their treatment with a residential stay in this healing environment. Dr. Milgram is the Medical Director at Present Moments which also features some of the top addiction counselors in the field of addiction treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions About NAD Treatment


How do I take NAD?

NAD can be ingested a few different ways but the most effective way to get the maximum benefit is to take the NAD intravenously, which bypasses the digestive system. Facilitating the intravenous dispensation of NAD is what Dr. Milgram has done more often (and for a longer time) then just about anyone else.

The intravenous sessions typically last 2-6 hours at first, because in the initial stage we are giving you the largest dose of the NAD. After the first couple of days, the dispensation sessions get progressively shorter.


What is NAD and Who Discovered It?

NAD is a natural substance that occurs in every living cell. It was originally discovered by scientists in 1906 but it wasn’t until many years later that doctors started realizing the many health benefits of supplementing our body’s natural supply of NAD. Read more on our What is NAD page.


How long is the Treatment?

The treatment differs for every patient upon an assessment that Dr. Milgram will do. It depends on what reason the NAD is being taken and all the other personal and health factors present.

Drug and alcohol detoxifications are more intensive and lengthy dispensations of NAD and can typically run from a few days up to 2 weeks. With our help, you can get off very high levels of alcohol or opiates (like heroin, hydromorph contin, or opana) in 10 days.  Many people report going from hopelessness to feeling wonderful with absolutely no cravings or withdrawals in 10 days. Some drugs like meth or Suboxone might require longer than 10 days of treatment.

The treatment of chronic degenerative diseases like Parkinson’s disease or Alzheimers will likely require one or a few days of NAD with periodic follow ups.

A treatment for Aging Reversal typically runs 4-6 days.


Where Will I Receive the NAD?

The intravenous infusion is typically facilitated in the comfortable office at our beautiful Carlsbad Headquarters right near the ocean on Carlsbad Village Drive. We also have other locations in San Diego and Orange County. If the NAD is for a drug detoxification, the treatment can be given at Present Moments Recovery, a very luxurious and supportive home-like treatment environment.

Each patient will be placed in a comfortable therapy room and will be encouraged to bring laptop or whatever device to help keep them entertained. Depending on the purpose of NAD infusion, the patient may receive additional treatment or counseling after the NAD dispensation.


Do we accept insurance?

Payment is expected at the time of NAD dispensation. We have an insurance utilization billing expert who can help you facilitate reimbursement (if your insurance plan covers NAD), and depending on the plan, we have obtained up to 90% reimbursement.

You can contact us anytime for assistance working with your insurance to find out what they cover and how they will reimburse you for the treatment you will do here. We are not Medicare/Medicaid approved for the NAD Therapy.
