NAD Treatment

NAD is a co-enzyme that is found in all living cells and is essential to living. NAD levels drop as we age and by supplementing our body’s supply, we help repair our brain by bathing it in nutrients.

Treatment for Addiction & Degenerative Diseases

Dr. Phillip Milgram is “The NAD MD” and he is a leading  expert in the field at using NAD to help people in several areas:

NAD in Addiction Treatment

NAD can greatly reduce discomfort and cravings during drug and alcohol detox, and often allow them to basically feel like they’ve never even done the drugs in 10 days. read more>

NAD for Chronic & Degenerative Diseases

NAD has been shown to reduce or eradicate the symptoms of many ailments including :

NAD for Aging Reversal

NAD infusions reverse the drastic drop in NAD that naturally occurs in our bodies as we age. This reduces the speed at which we lose energy and strength.

What drives all of these positive effects are the improvements in brain health and function that NAD causes when it bathes the brain’s cells in nutrients. read more>

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.  Typically the NAD is initially dispensed intravenously for 2-6 hours each day.

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 opiates and alcohol 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.
