Chronic Conditions FAQ
Chronic Conditions and Wellness
The NAD Treatment Center specializes in cellular rejuvenation, treating chronic conditions of the brain with the use of intravenous NAD+.
Through the use of intravenous NAD+, we are able to help restore brain function, specifically for people suffering from chronic illness, depression, anxiety, autoimmune conditions, and stress.
We collaborate with leading experts, and aim to be at the forefront of learning more about the benefits of NAD+ in treating other disorders and disease states. As researchers discover additional use cases for NAD+, we will incorporate those therapies into our programs.
Who is Dr. Milgram?
Phillip Milgram, M.D., serves as our Medical Director. He is San Diego’s exclusive certified provider of a proprietary BR+ Brain Restoration TherapyTM pioneered by The Springfield Wellness Center, the first and longest operating NAD+ clinic in the United States. He trained in 1991 with Vernon Johnson, the man who coined the term “Intervention” and has a passion for helping other people in recovery. The NAD Treatment Center specializes in cellular rejuvenation, treating chronic conditions of the brain with the use of intravenous NAD+.
With more than 37 years of experience in treating patients, Phillip Milgram, M.D., has developed a holistic approach to treating chronic conditions that addresses the whole patient – body, mind, and spirit. He is also a certified provider of BR+ Brain Restoration TherapyTM using intravenous NAD+ and other cutting-edge technologies. Inspired by the Springfield Wellness Center’s time-tested protocol, our NAD+ treatment helps to diminish the effects of brain-destroying conditions, such as addiction, substance abuse, stress disorders, chronic illness and depression.
Who is Tom Ingoglia?
Tom Ingoglia serves Dr. Milgram as director of Business and Development at NAD Treatment Center. He is also President of the Center for Research on Addiction & and Brain Health Inc. Tom was chronically ill with multiple chronic conditions including chronic fatigue, widespread chronic pain, brain fog, opiate addiction, Lyme Disease, and Flouoroquinolone adverse reaction. NAD+ abruptly improved Tom’s life after eight long years of chronic distress.
What is the treatment process?
Our approach starts with a thorough assessment of the patient’s physical, emotional and mental health to help us develop a personalized treatment plan, and determine what their protocol will be.
Our physician then prescribes nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) to be administered intravenously under the supervision of our trained medical staff. The typical patient will then be assessed on the first or second day of treatment for additional therapies that can help boost the patient’s health to an optimal level.
All of our treatments are outpatient in nature.
Throughout the course of treatment, patients may receive additional counseling and alternative therapies that can include everything from emotional and spiritual healing to holistic approaches like massage, reiki, cryotherapy, acupuncture, chiropractic care, neurofeedback and much more.
Following treatment, patients will be recommended different treatment plans and recommendations. This may include prescription VIVITROL injections and continued therapy for detox/addiction patients or other options like nutritive counseling and psychotherapy. Our goal is to make sure that each patient’s treatment both in and out of the NAD Treatment Center is as individualized as possible and that we do everything we can to ensure our patients’ success.
How long does it take?
While we personalize every NAD+ treatment to each person’s individual needs, a typical addiction detox treatment is 10+ days and atypical day of infusion is 6-8 hours.
Protocols will vary based on your specific condition:
|4+ Day Protocol (Wellness)||6-8+ day Protocol (Disease)||10+ Day Protocol (Detox)|
|Reflex Syndrome Dystrophia (RSD)||Anti-Aging||Prescription Drugs|
|Chronic Anxiety||Chronic Fatigue||Alcohol|
|Trouble Focusing||Memory Loss||Opiates|
|Irritability||ADD / ADHD||Cocaine|
|Low Energy||Parkinson’s Disease||Marijuana|
|Mental Re-Charge||Multiple Sclerosis||Methadone|
Does treatment have to be intravenous? Can I just buy NAD+ supplements at the health food store?
For serious conditions, drug or alcohol addiction, and radical rejuvenation, the intravenous application of NAD+ is currently the only recommended therapy. Store bought NAD+ supplements are not recommended for these conditions, simply because oral supplementation is broken down through digestion and is therefore not as bioavailable as intravenous therapy.
In addition, while NAD+ supplements are available over-the-counter, you really have no control over the quality and efficacy of the product you are purchasing. Store bought, over-the-counter NAD+ does not deliver the results of the intravenous NAD+ infusion.
- Experience has shown us that the quality of the NAD+ formulation—its concentration and purity—is critical.
- We use the proprietary formulation developed by Springfield Wellness Center and it includes amino acids and other nutrients that they have found will speed the effectiveness of the NAD+. This formulation is only available in intravenous form.
- Because intravenous treatment bypasses the digestive system, IV delivery has proven to work far better than any oral delivery system we have encountered.
How does it help with chronic illness?
Chronic illness affects millions of people. These conditions typically do not have a cure, and are managed through medication and lifestyle changes. For many people, it is difficult to do the things they enjoy, and often leads to depression and a feeling of hopelessness.
NAD+ treatment has been shown to be capable of dramatically reducing symptoms of these illnesses by boosting the body’s natural cell repair.
How does it help chronic stress?
Long-term stress can have a negative effect on our mental and physical health. It impedes our sleep, digestion, healing and cognitive abilities. Chronic stress can be an underlying contributor to autoimmune diseases, heart disease, osteoarthritis, obesity, depression, anxiety and more.
Our NAD+ protocols can restore mitochondrial function, which boosts physical and mental energy throughout the body.
How does it promote healthy aging?
Our bodies ability to fight inflammation and repair itself declines with age. Cells rely on restorative enzymes, such as sirtuins and PARPs, to help reduce symptoms associated aging. These enzymes heavily depend on NAD+, which is also known to decline with age. Replenishing your body with NAD+ will promote cellular regeneration through necessary repair enzymes.
Is it a cure?
The disease of addiction is a chronic illness. To date, there is no “cure” and this treatment is not a substitute for recovery, therapy or medical treatment. It is the beginning of the healing process. At the end of treatment, patients generally report a reduction in cravings, increased clarity of mind, better problem-solving ability, improved focus and concentration, increased energy, and improved mood.
How much does it cost?
The price for The NAD Treatment Center Detox Method can range between $6,000 to $17,000, depending on the specific program that is recommended for you and discussed with NAD Treatment Center staff.
For reference, a typical 10-day treatment is $13,500.
While every treatment is highly personalized to the needs of each individual, a typical 10-day treatment includes treatment includes:
- 10 days of high concentration NAD+ intravenous infusions
- Upgraded nutrient and micronutrient IV infusions
- A number of additional holistic therapies like massage, reiki treatments, cryotherapy, acupuncture, float therapy, or other alternative therapies based upon what the patient needs.
- Personalized vitamin and mineral nutrient supplementation throughout 10-day treatment
- Personalized nutritional protocols customized per diagnosis, organic lunches & snacks each day
- Mental/Emotional/Psychological counseling
The NAD Treatment Center Detox Method is considered an acute medical procedure, because the NAD+ is introduced directly into the bloodstream. It must be administered by a medical doctor and licensed RN.

What sets NAD Treatment Center apart from other NAD treatment facilities?
We feel confident about our ability to properly treat patients with our NAD program because of our extensive experience and official training that other centers may not have.
We make each patient’s treatment completely customized to his or her individual case. Dr. Milgram does a comprehensive initial consultation and creates an NAD protocol that best serves the patient’s health goals and needs. Sometimes, that required more than 10 days and sometimes it requires less. No two patient’s treatments will ever be exactly alike.
Dr. Milgram and his RNs prioritize compassion and care. Our nurses seek to spend quality therapeutic time with each patient they encounter.
The NAD Treatment Center is not a place where patients will be stuck to their chair or lonely for the length of their treatment. Each patient room is equipped with comfortable recliners, TVs, mini-fridges, and other amenities to make the treatment experience as comfortable as possible. Patients are also welcome to have their infusion done outside on our patios in the San Diego sun…you will experience a true mind/body/spirit detox and reboot.
Can my family or friends join me for my treatment?
We welcome family members and friends to spend time with the patient for as long as they like for the two days of treatment. After that, we prefer to honor each individual patient’s journey going through treatment and we’ve found that patients do better if their family and friends aren’t around them all the time. Family is more than welcome to drop off meals or spend an hour or so with the patient, but patients have reported much more success on every level if they are able to have some alone time during treatment. Of course, considerations may be made for particular cases.
What is a booster? What about aftercare?
Booster NAD+ treatments are 1-3 day treatments of NAD+ that are done in addition to the patient’s initial treatment. Not everyone would need a booster treatment. This is something that Dr. Milgram and the RNs will help each patient determine as the patient goes through the treatment. They will also help each patient create Relapse Prevention Plans and Relapse Action Plans as well as comprehensive integrative aftercare plans.
Are there any conditions that NAD+ would not be recommended for?
Yes. There are certain cases where NAD+ may not be the most recommended treatment plan. Please give us a call to discuss your particular case.
