At New Smyrna Wellness Center, we believe in a comprehensive approach to the disease of addiction. Opiate dependency is an epidemic in this country, which requires treatment to prevent morbidity and mortality. Our highly trained and experienced clinicians have options, such as outpatient medication-assistance therapy (Suboxone/Zubsolv), Vivitrol, and IV Amino Acid/NAD.
Suboxone is an opioid medication used to treat pain as well as treating addiction to narcotic pain medications. It can be very challenging to quit using narcotics without some type of assisted therapy or treatment and Suboxone acts as a medication assisted treatment. This can help you remain sober while decreasing the effects of withdrawal. Suboxone can also benefit you by blocking the cravings that could lead to a potential relapse.
Vivitrol, also known by the generic name of Naltrexone, is a series of monthly injections that helps treat alcohol dependence and assists in preventing relapse to opioid dependence after you have gone through opioid detoxification. This is an opioid free option suitable for most people trying to overcome alcohol dependence. Vivitrol helps control the feeling of a "need" to use opioid medications.
Amino Acid Therapy
NeuroRecover™ also known as infusion therapy or amino acid therapy uses proprietary amino acid based intravenous preparations to assist neurological repair of the addicted brain. It reduces and can eliminate cravings. It is designed to rapidly assist the addicted body in restoring neuro receptor function to normal levels. Once the body’s neuro receptor functions have been healed, the patient’s cravings, anxiety, and depression are reduced or eliminated, allowing the physician to remediate any underlying conditions that may have led to the original substance abuse. Drugs and alcohol damage the nervous system by artificially stimulating neurotransmitter receptors. This continued stimulation eventually dulls the receptors, and causes the need for the sustained or increased use of substances, just to function and feel closer to normal. When one cuts down a number of drugs or alcohol or stops completely, the receptors may heal completely with time, but often they do not. This leads to symptoms such as anxiety, emptiness, brain fog, physical pain, depression, lack of motivation and insomnia. Patients report sleeping better, improved mental clarity, little to no cravings, improved moved, and increased energy with complete Amino Acid/NAD therapy. NeuroRecover™ can be used for alcohol, amphetamines, cocaine, benzodiazepine, barbiturate, opiate, marijuana, and nicotine addiction.
