When students begin their college career, they are often exposed to social anxiety. The urge to drink is overwhelming among college students because they find that alcohol helps make socializing easier for them. Now, not all college students become binge drinkers and doing drugs, but the increasingly more casual drinking to have more fun and burn of steam often leads toward addiction.
In fact, according to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, about four out of five (4 out of 5) college students drink alcohol. Even though drinking is most popular form of substance abuse in college, the NIAAA points out that the use of marijuana, prescription drugs and illicit drugs are on the rise.

The BrainSpark Health Collegiate Recovery Program
We believe that Addiction Recovery and Wellness does not have to interfere or end a college students academic career. In fact, we pride ourselves on becoming the facility of choice when working directly with Colleges and Universities to develop a recovery plan that gets students back on track socially as well as academically.
NAD+ IV Therapy repairs the damage within the brain that has been caused by substance abuse at the cellular level. NAD+ also helps to lower the risks of relapses in our patients. NAD IV treatment usually requires one infusion per day for a period of ten days. A facility physician develops an individualized treatment plan as well as for each patient, including the precise NAD mixture. At the beginning of each day, a trained nurse will insert an IV and begin to slowly infuse the NAD mixture. Withdrawal symptoms reportedly begin to subside in just a matter of minutes.
