SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., Dec. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/-- Sovereign Health, a leading national provider of behavioral health treatment services, announces a new television interview about Sovereign Health's Nutritionally Assisted Detox (NAD) program. The interview, featuring Jennifer Moore, M.D., Associate Director of Clinical Excellence, was first broadcast live on the NBC affiliate KMIR's program "Desert Living" on Wednesday, Dec. 7.
As Dr. Moore notes in the interview, NAD is a unique, all-natural, rapid detoxification process that is designed to help individuals abstain from or rid the body of toxic or unhealthy substances and fight cravings with the use of NAD supplements. Instead of fighting the brain's natural healing process, NAD works in tandem to reduce the painful symptoms associated with withdrawal.
"The program is an infusion therapy, and the infusion is either a coenzyme or an amino acid, so it's natural. It's a very good program because it doesn't have any side effects. We use the NAD program to help patients with anxiety, depression or detox," says Dr. Moore.
When asked about how long the treatment takes and where patients receive treatment, Dr. Moore said, "It can take anywhere from 5 days to 10 days, and it all depends on what you're coming in for. If you're coming in for depression or anxiety, the treatment time is shorter, around 5 days, but for detox we usually recommend between 7 days to 10 days. Once our patients receive treatment, they're taken back to Sovereign patient housing, where they're being monitored by a nurse during the infusion, which can be between 6-8 hours."
Dr. Moore adds, "Sovereign Health has created a really good system for the NAD program. It's very natural, so the side effects are very minimal. We've received great feedback about the program."
Sovereign Health operates nine treatment facilities in five states: California, Arizona, Florida, Texas and Utah. The facilities are fully licensed and have been awarded Gold Seal accreditation by The Joint Commission, the highest level of accreditation available in the behavioral health field. Desert Living is a 30-minute TV program broadcast from Palm Springs in the desert's Coachella Valley.
