BALTIMORE - March 28, 2019 - PRLog -- In a book just released from Balboa Press, pioneering psychotherapist Paula Norris Mestayer shares her nearly 20 years of clinical experience successfully treating addiction—along with depression, PTSD, and other brain diseases—with intravenous infusions of NAD+, a natural coenzyme of niacin. The treatment enables patients to kick opiates, alcohol, benzodiazepines, methamphetamines, and more, in 10 short days—with minimal withdrawal symptoms or cravings.

In her paradigm-shifting book, Addiction: Dark Night of the Soul/NAD+: the Light of Hope, Norris Mestayer shares clinical evidence that addiction is a brain disease—and that when the brain is treated it can heal. Further, she asks, "Why are we treating our opioid epidemic by substituting replacement opioids? There is a better way."

Her remarkable book explains—in laymen's terms—what is known thus far about why NAD+ is effective. It also shares the inspirational stories of people who have journeyed through addiction's "dark night of the soul" and found their way to health, wholeness, and freedom once again.

"Our nation faces an opiate addiction epidemic, and our primary response is the substitution of one addictive narcotic (methadone or Suboxone) for another," she says.

"Although these drugs can provide short-term addiction relief, the price is often a lifetime of chemical slavery to the substitute narcotic—with long-term debilitating health consequences.

"Why would this be our first line of addiction treatment when there is a natural, non-narcotic treatment that effectively—some would say miraculously—eases people off of their addictive substances without substituting another addictive narcotic? Better still, it does so in just 10 short days of outpatient treatment."

Norris Mestayer is the founder of Springfield Wellness Center (, located Springfield, LA. Her clinical experience has also shown intravenous NAD+ to be effective in treating depression, PTSD, and even Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and CTE (the "concussion disease"). The treatment appears to give brains a "reboot," which is why it was originally called "Brain Restoration Therapy."

"Addiction: Dark Night of the Soul/NAD+ The Light of Hope" ( —and Norris Mestayer's work—is being heralded by others in the addiction treatment and research field. NAD+ researcher, Dr. Ross Grant, of the Australasian Research Institute, Sydney, Australia, says, "When we fully understand the role of NAD in overcoming oxidative stress, which is the leading cause of illness and death in developed countries, it will be obvious why it works to treat addiction—as well as a variety of other illnesses."

Dr. Louis Cataldie, addiction medicine specialist and author of 10,000 Addicts Later, says "NAD+ is changing the standard of care for addiction treatment—and Paula Norris Mestayer has more experience using NAD to help addicts than any other provider in our industry. Her contribution to the field of addiction medicine is huge."

Paula Norris Mestayer, M.Ed., LPC, FAPA, is the founder of Springfield Wellness Center (, which has helped thousands of people successfully break the rehab/relapse cycle. She and her colleague, Dr. Richard Mestayer, III, have also trained scores of other physicians in the protocols for utilizing NAD+ to effectively treat addiction—with minimal withdrawal symptoms and without substituting another narcotic.
