Is IV amino acid therapy an easier way to recover from drug abuse?

I wanted to enquire about orthomolecular medicine in disorders such as schizophrenia symptoms, and others. There is no hereditary schizophrenia in my whole family in all generations and 6 years ago i accidentally got a daily addiction to smoking crystal meth which caused daily stressful paranoia that i didn't realise wasn't real and by the second year of my addiction a series of traumas happened that set off daily intense stressful experiences and psychosis i didn't realise i was having. By the end of the second year of addiction like this i was diagnosed as in shock and having PTSD and then full blown schizophrenia started. It was terrifying when i was already in a state of shock and had never heard of schizophrenia. It was extremely difficult but my addiction stopped then and but i had to be medicated on dexamphetamine and respiridole but acute schizophrenia symptoms have continued still 4 years on and can be set off into episodes easily for no consistent reason but it seems to be from distress especially sudden removal of dexamphetamine due to the intense relentless withdrawals that don't seem to ease. Last year i was told i was undermethylator, borderline pyrolle disorder, had very high oxidative stress, extreme PTSD and intolerance to gluten and dairy and had elevated histamine levels. Tests a couple of years ago said i was difficient in B vitamins. my whole body is burnt out with this and i get very very easily distressed. I am confused with why this is like this especially still now 4 years after crystal meth addiction but the whole last 6 years have been a constant unbearable experience of acute schizophrenia mostly and very debilitating, some have said its possibly the dexamphetamine but for some reason i am intensely extremely distressed if i cut down or eliminate dexamphetamine and go into intense fight or flight/Survival mode and in the week that i could last the longest not having it i was in unbearable anxiety 24 hrs a day and virtually no improvement in discomfort or symptoms whatsoever and i had no ability to eat to move or do anything what so ever. Everyone is wanting me to not have dexamphetamine but won't offer any solution to how i'm meant to achieve doing that when i'm burn't out with intense anxiety and unbearable emotions and don't seem to heal by just stopping dex OR by tapering. So i have to have the respiridone injection and thus have forced extra anxiety from the constant slight withdrawal off dexamphetamine because of it clashing that way. I NEED A DRASTIC SOLUTION. Any ideas of what i could do to improve my schizophrenia symptoms and dependence on these two medications? Do you have experience in this area. I have a appointment with a orthomolecular doctor but not for a while .. QUESTION: I have recently learn't about 10 day IV NAD therapy and IV Amino Acid therapy for medication detox in a much softer easier and rapid way and believe it is the only option left i know of to get full recovery from this 6 year ordeal. Your thoughts? I know my situation is complex but i'm sick of suffering because people keep telling me to do the same thing and expect somehow it'll be different and its not good enough suffering like this because it's "complex" and people want to fob me off to other "specialists" or tell me to put up with suffering by not offering any solutions.
