What to Expect When You Choose Outpatient Detox for Your Loved One

If you have a loved one who’s looking to overcome an addiction to drugs or alcohol, outpatient detox may be the ideal first step toward recovery.

At Revolution Psychiatric and Addiction Treatment, founder Richard E. Repass, MD, offers the convenience of an outpatient detox program to help your loved one address their addiction safely and effectively.

When to consider outpatient detox

We offer outpatient detox to treat addictions to alcohol and drugs like methamphetamine, benzodiazepines, cannabis, opioids, and kratom.

Consider the outpatient services available at Revolution Psychiatric and Addiction Treatment for loved ones who are struggling on their own to stop using the substances. And learn more about our detox services if someone you love has already tried rehab without success.

What makes our program differ from others is the Brain Restoration plus nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (BR+NAD™) infusion therapies we offer. BR+NAD is the medical procedures using NAD and other supportive measures for detoxification and other medical services.

What to know about BR+NAD infusion therapy

NAD is found in every cell of your body. It contributes to your energy levels and the functioning of your nerves, organs, and brain. NAD also plays a role in the repair of your DNA, the stimulation of neurotransmitters in your brain, and the communication between the cells of your body.

When you have an addiction, your use of drugs and alcohol can lead to a NAD deficiency. The deficiency can decrease your cognitive function and your energy levels, making it harder for you to achieve addiction recovery.

BR+NAD infusion therapy also helps control your cravings for drugs and alcohol with long-lasting results, so you can increase your chances of a successful recovery.

One of the biggest benefits of BR+NAD infusion therapy for your loved one’s outpatient detox is that the substances in the infusion are natural, and you don’t have to rely on other potentially addictive drugs for your loved one’s recovery.

Expectations for outpatient detox

Outpatient detox lets your loved one complete in-office infusion treatments and then return home afterward. They don’t have to stay in a facility, so they can continue working and attending to their responsibilities.

During the infusions, we make sure your loved one is comfortable in a chair before we start an intravenous (IV) line in their arm. Through the IV line, we deliver a megadose of BR+NAD and other important nutrients, including amino acids and essential vitamins and minerals.

Course of treatment

The course of outpatient detox involves once-a-day infusions for 10-15 days. Our schedule begins on a Tuesday and goes through Thursday of the following week. The first two infusions last 10 hours, the second two infusions take seven hours, and for the remaining six days, treatments last between three and seven hours.  Soon we will open to be able to start any day on a rotating basis.  We look forward to meeting people’s needs with regard to schedule!

If your loved one is recovering from benzodiazepines, they may need an additional cycle of infusions after a break.  Treatments should be given consecutively for at least the first 6 days, then a break can occur. 

As the body absorbs the BR+NAD, brain function continues to improve and your loved one should notice a significant reduction in their cravings. It’s important that patients receive daily infusions to lower their risk for a relapse.

To find out if outpatient detox with BR+NAD infusion therapy is right for your loved one, contact us today at our Mercer Island, Washington, facility.
