ST. PETERSBURG, Florida, September 15, 2016 – Donna Zappin’s career in the addiction
treatment industry began in 2007 when she opened a sober living facility for men in recovery.
This led to the founding, co-ownership and directorship of an inpatient drug and alcohol recovery
center for men and woman, licensed by the state of Florida.
Long puzzled by the high failure rate with traditional treatment programs for addiction and PTSD,
she found a way to help replace the feelings of helplessness for those addicted, and their families,
with great hope through ZHENDEN. Zappin says, “This is the only in-Home addiction detox that uses
Neurotransmitter Restoration Therapy (NTR), a 10-day IV protocol administered by Registered Nurses
with addiction and detox experience. The all-inclusive program is especially designed for busy executives,
business owners, medical professionals, entertainers and athletes — anyone who can’t be away from
work for a long period of time.”
An active member of the St. Petersburg Area Chamber of Commerce, Zappin will host a
Grand Opening Ribbon Cutting Tuesday October 4, 5:30 to 7:00 pm at the Indigo Hotel,
234 Third Ave. North, downtown St. Petersburg.
Zappin continues: “After the 10 days, the program includes an additional 20 hours of one-on-one
counseling or coaching with our experienced professional staff. These are very necessary for the
client to explore the root causes of their addiction and discover solutions to aid recovery, for lasting results.”
