What is Opioid Addiction?
Opioids are a class of drugs that act on the opioid receptors in your brain. Opioids are often prescribed to help people manage pain when prescribed by a healthcare practitioner. They can also be used outside the realm of pain relief to produce ‘feel-good’, euphoric feelings.
Opioid addiction happens when your body becomes dependent on the stimulation produced by ingesting the drug. You may develop cravings and find it difficult to resist taking a dose when you no longer need it for pain relief.
On top of becoming addicted, your body develops an increased tolerance to the effects of opioids over time. What that means is that you will need increasingly higher doses to achieve the same effect. When you increase your intake of opioids, you run the risk of overdosing on this drug. An opioid overdose can be fatal; as of 2019, two of three drug-related deaths are caused by an opioid overdose.
There are many types of opioids. Some opiates are naturally-derived while others are synthetically created in a lab. Regardless of the type or origin of an opioid, this family of drugs is highly addictive.
Drug addiction does not stem from willpower. Addiction is a complicated process that involves not only the addictive substance, but your genetic makeup, the way your brain works, and your environment. If you or someone you know has developed an opioid addiction, it’s important to seek professional medical help as soon as possible. Opioid addiction can become very costly over time – not just for your finances, but for your health, your relationships, your home life, your work life, and more.
The symptoms of opioid addiction include:
- Elation or euphoria
- Drowsiness or intermittent nodding off
- Slow breathing
- Getting multiple prescriptions from different doctors
- Mood swings
- Social withdrawal
- Changes in interest, especially a loss of interest in normal activities
- Changes in financial stability
Why Get IV NAD Therapy for Opioid Recovery?
When you think ‘opioid recovery’, chances are that you think of rehab centers and group therapy. While these elements are important for successful rehab, IV NAD treatments are a less-known part of your addiction recovery kit. That’s because IV NAD treatments can help you get through the essential first step of any recovery program: safely detoxing your body.
While stopping sounds easy on paper, the symptoms of withdrawal can be intense. Many people may never get past this step. IV NAD can help you through the essential first step in any recovery program: safely detoxing your body. The duration of withdrawal varies from person to person, but is generally influenced by factors such as the duration of opiate addiction, the typical dose used, and your overall health.
Individuals who have preexisting health conditions can develop complications during the withdrawal portion of an addiction recovery program, so it’s important to get supervision from a trained medical team.
Symptoms of withdrawal include:
- Difficulty sleeping
- Muscle aches
IV NAD treatments are a valuable cotherapy to help you successfully complete an addiction recovery program. Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD) is a coenzyme that supports healthy cell growth and metabolic function. NAD can also reverse cellular damage as well as slow the effects of premature aging caused by long-term drug use.
As you age, your body naturally produces less and less of this coenzyme. External factors such as stress, environmental pollution, lifestyle habits, and addiction can all contribute to premature NAD depletion.
So, how does NAD factor into addiction recovery?
NAD IV Treatments for Opioid Addiction and Recovery
Getting past the symptoms of withdrawal can be the most challenging part of addiction recovery for many people. NAD binds to the opiate receptors in your brain that, when not stimulated by the effects of a drug, can cause the symptoms of withdrawal.
Some people find that they have minimal withdrawal symptoms while others do not experience withdrawal symptoms at all. By helping reduce the symptoms of withdrawal and curbing the cravings that come with them, NAD treatments can help overcome this hurdle for a strong recovery.
In addition to helping improve withdrawal symptoms, NAD promotes the regeneration and function of the neurotransmitters in your brain. Over time, opioid addiction damages these neurotransmitters, contributing to symptoms such as unclear thinking, a foggy feeling in your head, difficulty focusing, and memory issues. By repairing your neurotransmitters, NAD can restore your cognitive clarity and function.
NAD repairs DNA throughout your body, reversing the cellular and mitochondrial damage caused by long-term opiate addiction. On top of that, NAD supports metabolic function for improved energy. When you feel energized, you are better equipped to successfully complete your addiction recovery program.
NAD IV treatment will detoxify your body and give you the best platform possible to recover from addiction. The saline solution used in this treatment flushes out the excess free radicals that are generated by long-term opioid use. These free radicals can contribute to cellular damage that may lead to low energy, fatigue, premature signs of aging, and chronic disease.
