Addiction

Acupuncture is a popular complementary treatment in many addiction treatment programs. The standard protocol used in acupuncture treatments is called NADA (National Acupuncture Detoxification Association), an auricular acupuncture treatment consisting of 5 points in each ear using very fine, sterilized needles.

 

NADA is beneficial during the process of detoxification from substance abuse, and also helps with physical, emotional and psychological changes that occur with addiction and detoxification.

 

This protocol is typically done in groups, and the needles remain in for approximately 30-45 minutes. Benefits include not only reduced cravings and anxiety, and better sleep, but also improved program retention, and more cooperation and optimism in the process of recovery.

The 5 points used in the NADA protocol and their individual benefits are:

 Shen Men – calming, relaxing, calms stress, anxieties and sensitivity

 Sympathetic – balances the nervous system, relieves tension

 Liver – detoxifies, relaxes and soothes, relieves anger and irritability

 Kidney – strengthens and tones the body, detoxifies, calms fears

 Lung – improves respiration and detoxifies, helps process grief/sadness

 

Sandy is available to offer group NADA auricular acupuncture treatments at recovery centers in the Miami area.
