“I have wanted to offer a training on Post-Acute Withdrawal Symptoms and how to lessen the symptoms for opiate addicts in detox since the detox is longer than other drugs,” Dr. Cali Estes said.  “Most addicts getting sober from opiates have a long recovery road ahead of them and have symptoms that are not reduced by traditional medicines and traditional therapies, hence the perfect timing for the class to help    educate our professionals.”

The Post-Acute Withdrawal Certification class will teach the addiction professional how the amino acids interact with the body and how they lessen the symptoms of detox and create a sense of wellbeing in the Reward Pleasure center of the brain. Synaptamine™ uses a patented KB220z Neuroadaptagen technology that is nano sized providing greatly accelerated absorption by the body for optimal brain health, enhanced energy, reduced stress as well as helping nutritional maintenance of overall mood health and a sense of well-being.

“Synaptamine promotes a regulation or balance of the regions in the brain that ae impaired by opiates, Lance Manses, Vice President of Sales said. “Dopamine is released and you get a sense of pleasure and reduced stress.”
