Ardu RecoverEaze Therapy

Ardu RecoverEaze Therapy RecoverEaze is an IV Amino Acid Therapy that is a special blend of essential amino acids, as well as electrolytes and multivitamins crucial in restoring the addict’s damaged “reward center” of the brain. Chemical dependencies such as alcohol, cocaine, methamphetamines, heroin, SSRIs, Benzodiazepines, and other prescribed and street drugs have realized relief from little to no cravings post-treatment. Additional benefits can assist cessation of food, gambling, shopping addictions, sexual addictions, and tobacco use. Other benefits of Amino Acid Therapy include and are not limited to: depression, ADD, ADHD, PTSD, Cancer (post chemo and radiation), dementia, Alzheimer’s as well as relief in internal organ issues.
Ardu Recovery Center is proud to be the first comprehensive treatment center in the state of Utah offering RecoverEaze IV Amino Acid Therapy as part of its in-house detox and alternative medicine therapies. Clients who opt to supplement their recovery with this treatment receive RecoverEaze daily for 5 days as an initial step in their detox. Each infusion lasts approximately 7-8 hours and is closely monitored by our 24/7 medical staff while clients relax in our top of the line recliners in our Recovery Lounge.

Ardu Serenity Float Spa

The Ardu Serenity Float Spa is one of the unique alternative medicine therapies offered to our detoxing and recovery clients. Research has shown floating reduces anxiety, including symptoms of PTSD, by essentially shutting down the amygdala – the area in the brain responsible for the fight or flight response. It is especially effective during the early phases of recovery when withdrawals, cravings, and anxiety are at an all-time high.
The Serenity Float Spa is a giant sensory deprivation pod with approximately a thousand pounds of Epsom salt and about a foot of body temperature water. The salt creates a buoyancy that allows the user to float effortlessly; creating a sensory deprivation experience unlike any other. LED lights and soothing music help even the most claustrophobic of patients ease into a calm, relaxing state. Once the client is ready, the music and lights dim out and relaxation moves to a deep meditative state.
Alternative medicine modalities such as floating have gained popularity in both mainstream societies, as well as in collegiate and professional athletics. Studies prove this aids in chronic pain, insomnia, and craving reduction. It also helps reduce anxiety, depression, and trauma. Ardu is proud to offer these alternative healing modalities to our clients throughout their stay.

Ardu VibroAcoustic Lounge

The Ardu VibroAcoustic Lounge is a unique space, specifically to induce meditation with synchronized sound, vibration, and magnetic field stimulation. This integrates the mind, body, and spirit. We use SolTec Health Technology in order to offer our clients the most effective Neurofeedback therapy available.
SolTech explains, “During session clients are instructed to close their eyes and deeply relax or fall asleep. As a result, the visual system receives no stimulus. The SolTec Lounge consists of a comfortable, manually recline-able, seating platform containing an amplifier and transducers that produce sound (music), vibration, and magnetic stimulation. Multi-layered music is available, although we can use any music. Multiple melodies play simultaneously. This causes the music to fade into the distance as the client develops a profoundly relaxed and inattentive state of being.”
Furthermore, SolTech continues, “The relatively constant sound and vibration cause the neural circuitry associated with hearing and touch to become habituated – to stop attending to the stimuli. Reducing the activity of the neural circuitry related to sight, hearing and touch, which supports your survival mechanism causes the client to become far less vigilant or tense and as a result, become more relaxed and drift into a deep meditative state.”
Ardu’s VibroAcoustic Lounge can accommodate two clients at a time. It proudly includes this service as one of our alternative healing modalities during detox and recovery treatment.
