Oro House uses NAD+ and Vitamin IV Therapy as an integrated, supplemental treatment combined with our traditional addiction therapies for substance use recovery.
It’s quite common for people who struggle with addiction and other mental health issues to eat a diet that is lacking in nutritional value. Improper nutrition can cause brain fog, reduce energy or motivation, intensify symptoms of depression, and promote poor mental and physical health.
In addition, alcohol and substance misuse can rob the body of essential nutrients needed for the brain and vital organs to function properly. Alcohol is a diuretic that inhibits the normal absorption of much-needed vitamins like B1 and B12, among others.
To complement our evidence-based treatment modalities, we take pride in providing our clients with holistic wellness programs and amenities like organic chef-prepared meals for successful healing.
Adding a supplemental regimen of Vitamin IV Therapy to the comprehensive Oro House Recovery program allows us to more effectively promote and restore the health of the clients under our care.

What is Vitamin IV Therapy?
Vitamin IV Therapy, also known as Intravenous Therapy or Infusion Therapy, is a rapid and efficient way of delivering vitamins, nutrients, and electrolytes into the body.
Administering essential nutrients intravenously instead of orally distributes them immediately throughout the circulatory system where they can quickly begin working as intended.
This method bypasses the slow process of the digestive system so the body more quickly metabolizes the vitamins and nutrients, and they are absorbed at a higher rate since they are not lost during digestion.
This is not a new technique, as hospitals have used IV lines to deliver fluids and medications since the early 1900s.
In the 1960s, Dr. John Myers developed the Myers’ Cocktail as an IV infusion therapy that included a mix of vitamins and minerals to treat a variety of conditions such as fibromyalgia, asthma, migraine, chronic fatigue, and other illnesses.
Today, Vitamin IV Therapy has become a popular way to quickly boost immunity, detoxify the body, heal muscles after a workout, recover from a hangover, and improve skin complexion.
Depending on the mixture of nutrients, IV Therapy has shown to help with recovery from addiction and some forms of mental illness.
What Types of IV Therapy are Available?
Aside from intravenous use in a hospital or medical clinic, most IV Therapy treatments utilize the same method of nutrient delivery that can either be administered in an IV Lounge or at home by a trained professional.
What varies among the differing types is the vitamins and nutrients included in each cocktail, and the intended condition to be treated.
Types of IV Therapy
- Vitamin IV Therapy
- NAD+ IV Therapy
- IV Hydration Therapy
- IV Nutritional Therapy
- Detox IV Therapy
- Myers’ Cocktail
- Hangover Therapy
These are some of the most common types of IV Therapy, and the name for each use applies to the condition they are intended to treat.
An IV Hydration Therapy usually includes IV fluids and electrolytes that are used to rehydrate an individual who is dehydrated from illness or some form of over-exertion.
NAD+ IV Therapy will include NAD+, along with others like Vitamin B12, B Complex, Vitamin C, and Magnesium.
NAD stands for “nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide” which is a naturally occurring coenzyme in the body’s cells that is central to metabolism. NAD+ levels decline as we age.
NAD is important for mitochondria function in the body’s cells, and it is important for energy and the brain’s neurologic functioning, as well as repair and regeneration.
NAD+ IV Therapy can offer ways to:
- Improve memory, mental clarity, and focus
- Increase energy
- Overcome the effects of aging
- Detox and cleanse the body
- Boost the immune system
- Improve metabolic functioning
- Support addiction recovery
Vitamin IV or Nutritional Therapy can be used to supplement poor nutrition to help the body recover, repair, and heal.
Each type of IV Therapy uses specific vitamins and nutrients that are designed to target a distinct condition.
What are the Benefits of IV Therapy?
Regular exercise and eating healthy foods aren’t always enough to heal a body and mind that is chemically and nutritionally out of balance.
Under ideal circumstances, a healthy diet and drinking plenty of water or hydrating fluids each day is usually enough for most people to stay healthy.
Unfortunately, people who are addicted to alcohol or certain types of drugs are deficient in the nutrients needed for the body and mind to function normally, especially when they initially begin a recovery program.
Vitamin IV Therapy is a quick and easy way of introducing much needed nutrients to help the body and mind heal when it needs them the most.
Not only does the body instantly absorb the vitamins and nutrients through an IV infusion, but the absorption rate is also much higher than when taken orally.
A healthy body and mind is needed to focus all attention on recovery and healing.
