With the introduction of appropriate amino acids (neurotransmitter precursors) in addition to health wellness and other essential vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, and nutrient derivatives, it is possible to eliminate or reduce the severity of artificial chemical craving symptoms in a matter of days or weeks.
Our program employs scientific research that shows how neurotransmitter damage can be repaired. St. Gregory’s protocols were developed to target and restore the key neurotransmitters that can bring brain chemistry into normal balance, reduce cravings, and allow optimal brain functioning. These elements are the highest quality nutrients available and work as they target specific neurotransmitter deficiencies to achieve maximum benefit.
The St. Gregory DAAP© program works to repair damage from the following substances:
- Cocaine / Crack Cocaine
- Opiates / Opioids (Heroin, Oxycontin, Percocete)
- Benzodiazepines (Valium, Klonopin, Xanax, Ativan)
Why is this important?
With the use of appropriate amino acids, along with other essential vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, and nutrient derivatives, it is possible to eliminate or reduce the severity of abstinence-based symptoms, craving, and relapse.
After the initial lab work and assessment at St. Gregory, patients are treated with a protocol of amino acids that actually help rebuild the damaged areas of the brain. These basic amino acids are specially formulated to penetrate and positively influence neurotransmitters. Because the amino acids give the brain what it craves in a natural, non-habit-forming way while rebuilding the neurotransmitters, the cravings begin to recede very rapidly. During this period, neurochemistry stabilizes and cellular structures regenerate, creating the potential for reduced cravings, reduced tendency to relapse, and positive change after completing the St. Gregory program.
The individualized, three-phase Directed Amino Acid Program™ (DAAP) is based on lab work and assessment results during your admission to the St. Gregory Recovery Program. These results direct the different phases of the DAAP Program, addressing appropriate natural neurotransmitter deficiencies and taking into consideration an individual’s unique biochemistry. Though certain neurotransmitters may show a deficiency or surplus, other neurotransmitters may need to be brought into balance before initiating the primary protocol.
Phase I (usually lasts three to five days)
In Phase I, guests are treated with a protocol of amino acids that actually aid in restoring biochemical balance to dysfunctional areas of the brain while providing nutrition and hydration. During this phase, the fastest and most effective means of delivering these nutrients is intravenously. The use of intravenous nutrient therapy delivers the amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and trace elements directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive tract where most orally administered supplements are lost due to poor absorption.
The intravenous delivery of nutrients (managed by St. Gregory doctors and nurses) assures a more rapid, predictable delivery and optimization of key nutrients into the bloodstream and brain, thereby achieving therapeutic levels not easily obtainable with oral supplements or diet alone. During this period, neurochemistry stabilizes and cellular structures are repaired, creating the potential for reduced cravings, reduced tendency to relapse, and the opportunity for positive change.
Phase II (Six Weeks)
This phase is structured in a way that mimics the body’s natural circadian rhythms (a 24-hour cycle in the biochemical, physiological, or behavioral process), balancing excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmitter levels. Phase II is delivered daily with a patented oral protocol of SynaptaGenX.
SynaptaGenX is the result of more than 30 years of research and 23 clinical trials, and represents the latest findings in Amino Acid Therapy for assistance in addiction recovery. SynaptaGenX is a Neuroadaptagen Amino Acid Therapy utilizing a patented liposomal technology that improves absorption and maximizes bioavailability. The primary purpose of SynaptaGenX is to help regulate cravings. It also helps support focus and cognition, enhanced energy, neurotransmitter balance, optimal brain function, and healthy moods.
Phase III (As Recommended)
The final phase is a maintenance phase recommended when the patient’s neurotransmitter levels have been optimized.
