Amino Acid Therapy for Addiction

Sep 19, 2019 at 11:35 am by Staff




This modern approach to drug and alcohol dependence and addiction is one of the best kept secrets in the addiction recovery industry. Amino acids have proven to be the most effective method in assisting the body and brain in repairing damages done by drugs (either illegal or prescription), alcohol, marijuana, and nicotine. Ironically, this procedure is being performed by one of the best kept secrets in the industry as well, Serenity Springs Recovery Center in New Smyrna Beach, Florida.


As many addicts will tell you, addiction is less about what they are addicted to and more about why they are addicted to it. As more and more research emerges around addiction and treatments for addiction, it is clear that the brain and its functions play a huge role. Without physically changing the way the brain is working, addictions are nearly impossible to overcome. Even if one habit is dropped, another will be picked up just as quickly. This is why many addicts are known to jump from substance to substance, habit to habit.


Many addictions are indeed more genetic or psychological than they are physical. Of course, whether or not an addiction is truly a disease or a mental illness is still up for debate and remains to be a highly controversial subject. However, debating what causes addiction or why people become addicts isn't immediately helpful for individuals dealing with its effects right now. In order to help individuals with addictions function in daily life, and perhaps even save their life in some cases, effective treatments need to be discovered and made available.


The NeuroRecover formulas assist neurological repair of the addicted brain while reducing or eliminating cravings. This can help to manage symptoms and as an ongoing strategy to restore brain normalcy and well-being. It is designed to rapidly assist the addict's body in restoring neuroreceptor function to normal levels. Once the body's neuroreceptor 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.


NeuroRecover™ was pioneered by the late Dr. William Hitt with 20 years of intensive research with hundreds of patients. Dr. Humiston was trained by Dr. Hitt and has been treating patients with NeuroRecover™ since 2003. Dr. Humiston wrote the Clinicians' Manual used to train other physicians on NeuroRecover™ and continues to train other physicians on its use.

NeuroRecover™ has been shown on SPECT brain scans performed at the Dr. Daniel Amen Clinics, in images taken before and after treatment, to promptly bring about significant improvement in function in the drug-damaged brain. As the amino acid therapy treatment rapidly reduces cravings and in almost all cases eliminates them, patients can expect the benefits to last - to live without cravings, and to have restored clarity of mind and well-being.


In active addiction, a user will have damaged their neuroreceptors to a point where they no longer function properly. Since they become so impaired, the addict has to use drugs in order

for his or her neuroreceptors to work. Amino acids can be seen as a "reset" button where those damaged receptors go back to a point before introducing toxins and poisons throughout addiction. Amino acid therapy is given intravenously, bypassing the overworked digestive system, and are much more effective as a result.


NeuroRecover™ is an amino acid therapy administered as a daily intravenous solution for eight hours a day. This prolonged exposure to specific amino acids and NAD bathes the damaged nervous system in an abundance of repair materials. The brain is then able to rapidly employ these natural materials to speed healing and close up the chemical deficiencies that drug, alcohol or marijuana exposure has caused, which minimizes withdrawal and results in lasting healing in almost all cases.



The total treatment time varies from five to eight days for those already clean from the substance(s) for three weeks or more, to ten to fifteen days for those who are currently using or who are dependent on a number of substances. The treatment ends when the patient feels no cravings and has restored clarity of mind and enthusiasm to be alive.





NeuroRecover™ is also known as infusion therapy or amino acid therapy, and uses proprietary amino acid based intravenous preparations to assist neurological repair of the addicted brain. Serenity Springs proven infusion therapy program generally lasts 6-8 hours per day for approximately 10 days. It is usually recommended that a client begins the therapy halfway through their stay in treatment.
