Desert Ketamine Clinic provides for a nearly PAINLESS DETOX EXPERIENCE from the effects of drugs and alcohol.  The basis of the treatment in the combination of intravenous infusions of Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD+) and Ketamine..

NAD+ is a coenzyme that fuels many important processes in the body.  Given in a mega dose to addicts, it allows them to easily and quickly detox from the powerful grip of drugs and alcohol.  NAD+ acts to increase energy levels, reduce oxidative stress during detoxification, and stimulate the production of neurotransmitters like dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine.  It reduces irritability and anxiety while the body is cleansing and recovering.  It helps to improve and regulate the sleep-wake cycle and provides the mental clarity and focus required to overcome addiction.

Ketamine is a powerful tool in assisting in the maintenance of sobriety from drugs and alcohol.  Post Acute Withdrawal Syndrome (PAWS) is the emotional and psychological withdrawal phase that occurs shortly after physical detoxification.  Ketamine infusions act to significantly reduce PAWS, and the cravings that usually result in a return to substances of abuse.  In addition it helps to quickly treat depression, anxiety, and pain, which frequently go hand in hand with addiction.  In several recent studies, Ketamine has been shown to prolong abstinence from alcohol and heroin in detoxified alcoholics and heroin dependent individuals.  It is able to significantly reduce cravings in cocaine abusers.

Being the first to administer these two medications together, Desert Ketamine Clinic has found a synergism between NAD+ and Ketamine.  A series of intravenous infusions, over a week to ten days, produces a rapid and well tolerated detoxification from drugs and alcohol with minimal withdrawal symptoms. It then ceases the cravings, pain, and depression that usually result in a return to substance abuse.  This combination therapy is as close as one can get to a truly painless detox.

Typical Course of Treatment

Infusions of NAD+ and Ketamine are administered in a beautiful and relaxing, medical setting directly by Dr. Munk at Desert Ketamine Clinic.

A small IV is placed and the infusion begins.  Typically we start with a Myer’s Cocktail (multivitamin infusion) and Glutathione (antioxidant).  The NAD+ and Ketamine solution then begin to infuse.  Clients are able to relax, lean back in a comfortable chair, and close their eyes.  They may opt to read a book, watch TV, or browse the internet on our Wi-Fi connection.  Depending on your individualized dosing schedule, infusions typically last three to five hours.  Vital signs are monitored periodically to ensure a smooth and safe experience.

Patients will be supplied with NAD+ sublingual tablets and trans-dermal patches to continue the treatment for the remainder of the afternoon and overnight.  Additional medications and supplements will be available to help with sleep, nausea, muscle spasms, etc.  

Subsequent daily infusions of NAD+ and Ketamine continue for the next week to ten days.   It is our goal to ensure a rapid and smooth detox experience.

Please note that not all patients desire combination therapy. We have many patients who opt for just NAD+ detox or Ketamine alone for Post Addiction Withdrawal Syndrome (PAWS)
