Addictions can also be treated with acupuncture in a community setting.
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.
