Substance use disorders don’t discriminate; they affect people of all ages and backgrounds. Drug and alcohol addiction are common illnesses that cause significant impairment and health problems. Ketamine and NAD are unique therapies that effectively treat drug and alcohol addiction at the core.
Learn how the 361 Wellness uses these medications to help patients recover from substance addiction.
Ketamine is a medication used as an anesthetic and to produce relief. It is used off-label to treat depression, anxiety, and pain, as well as drug and alcohol addiction.
Your provider may combine ketamine with nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), a coenzyme of the B vitamin niacin. NAD helps the body produce energy and is commonly depleted in people with drug and alcohol addiction. Replenishing NAD levels helps keep patients comfortable during recovery.
Ketamine and NAD are safe to use in a medical practice and can only be prescribed by a trained medical professional.
When used for therapeutic purposes, including the treatment of drug and alcohol addiction, Providers here at 361 Wellness administer ketamine and NAD as an intravenous infusion. Here’s how this cutting edge therapy can help you overcome substance addiction.
With recurrent alcohol use, the brain creates alcohol-related memories that serve as powerful drivers to continue using alcohol, despite health harm and interference with daily life. Ketamine is shown to disrupt harmful behavior patterns.
Strong memories related to substance use can create powerful urges when you’re trying to stop using drugs and alcohol. These memories can hijack the mind and make you vulnerable to relapse if you do attempt to abstain from drug and alcohol use.
Ketamine can disrupt memories, so you aren’t vulnerable to environmental triggers. For example, passing by a bottle of alcohol at your local store can trigger powerful memories from when you consumed alcohol, making it difficult to resist. Ketamine can disrupt these memories so patients don’t experience cravings when exposed to environmental triggers.
Experiencing powerful withdrawal symptoms are cited as one of the most common challenges of overcoming drug and alcohol addiction. Ketamine and NAD can help manage drug withdrawal symptoms.
Ketamine’s anesthetic properties make it an effective medication for reducing common withdrawal symptoms, including pain, nausea, and gastrointestinal discomfort. The addition of NAD helps boost energy and reduces the negative effects of withdrawal, such as fatigue.
The providers at 361 Wellness can develop an individualized treatment plan to help you manage withdrawal and successfully recover from substance addiction.
In people with drug addiction, the brain creates new pathways related to drug use. When you use drugs, your brain releases chemicals related to behavior reward. It’s this reward feedback information that creates new pathways in the brain meant to reinforce the behavior.
These pathways drive you to repeat drug use even if it is causing harm. Ketamine and NAD can help interfere with drug-related pathways. NAD helps flush drugs and alcohol out of the system, while ketamine blocks reward signals related to addiction.
As a result, patients experience reduced cravings for their drug of choice, making it easier to recover mentally and physically. A comprehensive treatment plan can help you abstain and recover from drug and alcohol addiction.
After the team at the 361 Wellness assists in detoxification from drugs and alcohol, ketamine therapy can be used to help you maintain sobriety. Treatment goals include controlling or eliminating drug and alcohol cravings so you can maintain a healthy drug-free lifestyle.

Chronic pain is an epidemic in the United States, and many people suffer in silence. We here at 361 Wellness understand and are ready to help
Depression and anxiety are the most common mental disorder in the United States and the world. The effectiveness of ketamine for depression and anxiety has been reconfirmed and proven many times. 361 Wellness can help.
PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder), is a mental health condition triggered by experiencing a terrifying or traumatic event. It cannot be cured, but treatment often helps.
Migraine headaches affect one half of the head and the pain is pulsating in nature. Painful symptoms usually last from 2-72 hours, but some patients do not have relief from their migraine headache for days or weeks. Patients with migraines or chronic headaches can also have the associated symptoms of nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light and smell, depression, and anxiety
Fibromyalgia is a complex pain disorder that affects an estimated 8-12 million people in the United States. Fibromyalgia can also be caused by physical trauma or illness. The treatment of fibromyalgia is just as complicated as the disorder. Different treatment modalities include exercise, diet change, pharmaceuticals, massage, yoga, trigger point injections, and stretching.
Inflammatory pain affects many. Most commonly, chronic inflammatory pain is known as arthritis, the slow degeneration of joints throughout the body. There are many types of chronic inflammatory pain including asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis, and auto immune diseases.
(NAD)+IV INFUSION IS A PROMISING THERAPY TO HELP YOU FEEL YOUNGER & REJUVENATED
Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD) was discovered in 1906. NAD+ is a coenzyme in the body. Scientists have found that declining amounts of the NAD coenzyme contributes to aging.
Infusing NAD+ into the bloodstream can help curb the mental and physical declines associated with aging. Through a standard drip, IV nutrition delivers NAD+ directly to your bloodstream, bypassing the gut for full absorption.
With orally ingested vitamins, nutrients must pass through the entire digestive system before getting absorbed, if they do at all. For NAD+, IV infusions infusions are safer and preferred over orally ingested alternatives because NAD+ is hard to process through the gastrointestinal tract.
NAD infusions help people feel less fatigued and more alert—NAD is a natural “biohack” that does wonders for our DNA, bodies, and minds.
As a naturally-occurring coenzyme, NAD…
A recent study demonstrated that regular NAD+ infusions can manipulate the amount of NAD+ in the body. In the study, regular NAD+ infusions in 120 adult participants, ages 60-80, increased their NAD+ levels by over 40% in eight weeks. Scientists were able to maintain these increased NAD+ levels for 60 consecutive days. The study found that not only could regular NAD+ infusions increase levels of the coenzyme, but the regular infusions could also slow the effects of aging.
361 Wellness is excited to offer NAD+ infusions. Visit our experienced Family Nurse Practitioner today to experience an NAD+ infusion firsthand.
Aging is not a disease, but as people grow older, their bodies gradually but progressively function less effectively than they once did.
At 361 Wellness, we are dedicated to helping our patients adopt healthy habits, manage their health conditions and use preventative services to feel their best physically and mentally. One of our services that helps promote healthy aging is our NAD+ intravenous (IV) formula.
Aging has a significant effect on muscles. With age-associated loss of muscle mass, muscles become weaker which can lead to fatigue. Too often, people ignore or dismiss these effects as an irreparable part of aging.
Scientists have shown that the increasing fatigue associated with aging is a result of decreasing Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD) levels in the body.
Aging has also been associated with lower lipid metabolism. Slowed metabolism can lead to increased fat storage in the body. This too, is a result of the age-related decreasing of NAD+.
Mental capacity can wane with age and remembering small details can become harder than it once was. Neurodegeneration issues can be mild or manifest more severely, such as with Alzheimer’s disease.
Scientists and doctors have been trying to find ways to improve the aging process. One promising solution is NAD+.
There are two ingredients in our NAD+ IV infusion:
NAD+ is a coenzyme. It occurs naturally in every living cell. It decreases with age, which is why most adults can benefit from this formula.
Saline is a common solution in IV therapy. It is a mixture of salt and water. The saline solution helps deliver the NAD+ throughout the body, and has the added benefit of increasing hydration, which can also help reduce fatigue.
Whether you would prefer a one-time infusion or ongoing treatment, we have a program geared towards you. Please contact us at 361-986-3691 to discuss pricing.
We offer free consultations with our experienced Nurse Practitioner who will design a customized treatment plan specific for you.
Our NAD IV treatment combines IV fluids and NAD for brain restoration, enhanced energy, mental clarity, and anti-aging.
