Share Article

Sovereign Health Group recently opened its doors on a new Neurotransmitter Restoration (NTR) Therapy clinic. This clinic offers innovative, natural detox from alcohol and drugs, and clients reside in luxurious accommodations.

NTR therapy is a detox treatment that uses amino acids, vitamins and other nutrients rather than medication to minimize withdrawal symptoms and heal the damage to the brain caused by chronic substance abuse. The main component is nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), a coenzyme that is closely related to vitamin B3 (niacin) and stimulates cells, which speeds up the brain restoration process.

This therapy involves a drug-free intravenous (IV) drip that contains NAD, amino acids, vitamins and other nutrients that encourage the healing of the brain. It also promotes the rapid healing of the neurotransmitter system, which relieves withdrawal symptoms and reduces cravings. It has been shown to alleviate fatigue, anxiety and depression, normalize stress levels, restore mental clarity, and renew a sense of well-being or optimism about engaging in the next steps of a larger recovery program.

“NTR has been shown to significantly reduce the symptoms of withdrawal, and it reduces the number of days in which one goes through withdrawal,” says Dr. Larry Snyder, medical director of Sovereign Health. “It also reduces the cravings that cause many people to relapse during early recovery.”

The therapy typically lasts for around 10-14 days, depending on a doctor’s assessment of the patient’s health and the substance to which he or she is addicted. Patients also take additional nutritional supplements orally, based upon a doctor’s recommendation.

Sovereign Health’s NTR clinic offers this innovative detox option in a comfortable setting, with lodging in luxurious residences. In the clinic, patients relax on comfortable recliners surrounded by entertainment options, including free WiFi, movies and a large screen TV.

The NAD clinic’s atmosphere is soothing and relaxing, enhancing a client’s recovery.
“The NTR clinic is all about comfort,” says Dr. Snyder. “The therapy reduces withdrawal symptoms and cravings, making the detox more comfortable. We created the clinic and residence to likewise provide comfort to the client.”

Clients spend several hours each day at the NTR clinic receiving therapy; snacks, meals, pillows, and blankets are all provided. During their detox, they sleep at an executive-style residential home with an ocean view. The house includes a small gym and sauna, and the bedrooms feature queen-size beds. Nurses are on call 24 hours a day, and the clients are monitored by a registered nurse during the IV therapy. There is also a physician and physician’s assistant available.

In addition to medical staff, the NTR therapy also includes support staff in the form of a case manager, a patient concierge, and house managers who provide around-the-clock-care and arrange transportation for the clients.

Once their detox has ended, clients in the NTR therapy program have the option to enroll in the other Sovereign Health programs, which include individual and group psychotherapy and complementary alternative therapeutic activities such as yoga, meditation, exercise opportunities, art therapy, music therapy, and equine therapy.
