Addiction is a chronic recurring illness that can cause damage to the organs, and in particular the brain. Addiction involves the mesolimbic dopamine system which include the surveillance-oriented brainstem, the emotional limbic system and the frontal cerebral cortex.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been used for many different types of brain damage, including but not limited to concussions, PTSD and strokes. It is also used as an adjuvant therapy for addiction.
At NLMG treatment protocol for addiction is a combination of HBOT, IV therapy, supplements and if needed, cell therapy.
In narcotic addiction and dependency, patients are able to come off their drugs in days to a week with minimal withdrawals and preservation of organs (Epifanova NM Anesteziol Reanimatol 1995, May-Jun(3):34-9S).
Some of the organ damage to the liver and brain, caused by alcohol, can be reversed with treatment options offered at NLMG.
Patients with a nicotine addiction may also benefit from these treatments. The effects of carbon monoxide associated with smoking can make it more difficult to quit a nicotine addiction. After a person quits smoking, it takes 3-4 days for the carbon monoxide level to decrease to normal levels. HBOT can eliminate the carbon monoxide in hours and help bypass the difficult 3-4 days after quitting smoking. In addition, HBOT can be use to reverse some of the effects from chronic carbon monoxide poisoning that result in changes in the circulatory system.
