Reward Deficiency Syndrome (RDS) is a disorder thought to be an underlying factor in the following conditions:

  • Addictive Behaviors
  • Alcoholism
  • Obesity
  • ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)
  • Personality Disorder
  • Antisocial Personality
  • Aggressive Behavior
  • Pathological Gambling
  • Compulsive Disorders

Who suffers from Reward Deficiency Syndrome? According to the RDS community, RDS affects individuals who may be predisposed to a brain disorder in which there is a lack of stimulation of the pleasure pathway in the brain. Unfortunately, this syndrome disrupts the lives of parents, children and siblings, and one third of the population is thought to express one form of RDS behavior or another.

RDS manifests as anxiety, cravings and depression. Scientists have discovered the relationship between addiction and reduced dopamine levels, a key finding that is crucial for successful addiction treatment.

Treatment Centers XL is a revolutionary treatment center that offers an innovative drug and alcohol recovery program complete with TGGRS (Third Generation Genetic Recovery System). With I.V. protocol, we provide highly beneficial state of the art technology which we feel leads to a successful management of addiction.

In addition to our patented TGGRS amino acid formula (available intravenously and orally), we also offer group alcohol and drug education classes, group alcohol and therapy classes, individual psychotherapy, relapse prevention groups, rolfing, and massage therapy. We also provide comprehensive blood profile workups (including liver profiles) , as well as neurotransmitter testing of Dopamine, Serotonin,  Norepinephrine, Epinephrine, Norepi/Epi Ratio, GABA, Glutamate, Histamine, 6 Cortisols (8am, noon, 4pm, 8pm, midnight, 4am), and 3 DHEA(s) (8am, 8pm, midnight) levels.

Drug addiction is a complex disease that is often subject to relapse, but we believe it can be effectively managed. The ultimate goal of any addiction recovery plan is lifelong abstinence from the addictive substance and heightened physical, mental and social functioning.
