The International Sportscience Institute (ISI) in West Los Angeles has been serving patients locally, nationwide, and internationally for over 25 years, always at the forefront of both clinical application and science. Most recently, ISI has introduced a unique medical program called NeuroRecover-ISI, which produces remarkably quick and long-lasting results for addiction recovery.

Hyla Cass M.D. Psychiatric Director of NeuroRecover-ISI, is a nationally acclaimed innovator in the field of integrative medicine, psychiatry, and addiction recovery. She is the author of the handbook, The Addicted Brain and How to Break Free on the use of natural supplements for addiction recovery. She has appeared as a guest on national radio and television shows, including The Dr. Oz Show, E! Entertainment, and The View, and in national print media. She has developed her own line of nutritional supplements that are specifically formulated to restore neurotransmitter balance, and available both at ISI and at her own website, www.cassmd.com.
NeuroRecover-ISI provides a unique solution to the problem of the revolving door of recovery and relapse. It can make a profound difference for people suffering from addiction in a matter of days because, unlike most programs, it directly addresses the root biochemical cause of cravings and addiction: imbalance of brain neurotransmitters. Once biochemical balance is restored, the individual is able to think more clearly, better utilize supportive and insight-oriented therapy, and achieve improved emotional balance. They come home to themselves!
Substances like drugs and alcohol can easily alter the brain because it is not designed for this type of prolonged, intense chemical exposure, and just doesn’t have an adequate supply of repair proteins available.
In order to directly address this problem of depletion, NeuroRecover-ISI doctors intravenously administer specifically targeted amino acids and co-factor nutrients to patients on a daily basis for 7-10 days. This program consists of unique, proprietary formulas that have been adjusted and perfected over 15 years of research and clinical use, and rapidly restores neuroreceptor and neurotransmitter function. Oral nutritional supplements are provided adjunctively to help restore and maintain brain chemistry balance, and are often continued long-term, as needed.
As we know, abrupt withdrawal can be a serious shock to the system, with often serious medical repercussions, while withdrawing gradually can be a difficult process, with its own pitfalls. But with NeuroRecover-ISI, patients can quickly discontinue using their substance of choice, while avoiding withdrawal symptoms. The same process is used in withdrawing from prescription medications such as opiates, SSRI’s and benzodiazepines, all very difficult when done on their own.
How powerful and quick is NeuroRecover Amino Acid Therapy, you may ask?
After only his second day in the NeuroRecover program, Jerry was surprised and delighted by his progress: “I have been through detox four other times, and I feel as clear now as I ever did after 30 days! My mind is quiet, I can think clearly and I am not craving a drink or a toke.”
Jerry’s case is not unusual. In fact, most patients can resist using substances after only a day or two of treatment, and with minimal withdrawal symptoms.
Melissa, a recovering drug and alcohol addict who went through the NeuroRecover Program said, “Since receiving the NeuroRecover drip, there has been a big change in my addictive behavior. I have dissolved my unhealthy attachments to drugs and alcohol and adjusted my cravings. There are no triggers for physical cravings or mental obsession at this time like those that I have experienced in recovery in the past. The experience has re-ignited my passion for life.”
Another client, Brent, reported, that “the effect was immediate and profound.”
The team at NeuroRecover-ISI collaborates with other addiction recovery professionals and programs to help deal with the psychosocial and emotional aspects of recovery. This makes their job easier—they can focus simply on the job of psychosocial and emotional recovery. ISI will soon also have an Individualized integrated intensive outpatient program.
