Summit Wellness Center offers a 6 to 10 day outpatient treatment that safely detoxifies patients through alcohol withdrawal under medical supervision. The NAD Br+ protocol is so effective at treating alcohol withdrawal that the need for standard medications used in a hospital setting is often eliminated. We apply the standard Clinical Institute Withdrawal Assessment for Alcohol (CIWA) scale to monitor recovery. After the first few days, patients typically experience a return to restful sleep, amazing mental clarity, good energy, and no cravings.
A 4 to 6 day outpatient infusion is offered for individuals with a minimum of 2 to 4 weeks of sobriety to treat PAWS, or Post Acute Withdrawal Syndrome. This is highly effective for patients who may have recently completed acute inpatient detox or a 30 day residential program who continue to have problematic symptoms that increase relapse risk for months.
For acute alcohol detoxification or treatment of PAWS, our NAD Br+ protocol offers superior results with outpatient convenience.
Alcohol is a drug that over time causes physical and mental dependence. Alcohol dependence is a major cause of declining health and stability in life, and problems in work and relationships that negatively affect life. It is often the case that people with chemical dependency with alcohol fail repeatedly to cut back or stop drinking on their own and struggle to make it through the months of early sobriety without relapse. This is in large part due to imbalances in brain chemistry and function that take many months to heal even with standard treatments. These longer term imbalances cause symptoms also known as PAWS, or Post Acute Withdrawal Syndrome. The BR+ protocol allows safe acute detoxification from alcohol and offers superior resolution of PAWS providing the foundation needed to advance to long term recovery.
Acute withdrawal from alcohol can be life threatening and produce seizures and/or delirium. Common early withdrawal symptoms upon trying to cut back or not use alcohol include shaky hands, elevated pulse and blood pressure, increasing anxiety and restlessness, sweats, weakness, nausea, and insomnia. Sometimes alcohol withdrawal can represent a medical emergency. Alcohol detoxification should happen under medical supervision. In cases where pre-existing medical conditions exist and are not stable, outpatient detoxification of any kind may not be safe. A pre- treatment assessment will help make this determination.
