Jennifer Moore, M.D., Associate Director of Clinical Excellence, discusses the Nutritionally Assisted Detox (NAD) program 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.

Dr. Patrick Schonbachler , Psy.D., H.S.P.P., Site Training Director at Sovereign Health of Arizona, discusses causes and treatment of trauma. Dr. Schonbachler notes in the interview, trauma can cause upsetting emotions, frightening memories and even a sense of constant danger both physically as well as emotionally.
