Acupuncture is used as part of a holistic approach in a recovery program, in a counseling environment, or any level of care used to assist individuals with an addiction. The Acupuncture Detox Protocol interrupts the signals from the body to the brain so cravings are reduced or eliminated. Weekly treatments provide:
Greater focus and clarity
Reduction of monkey mind
Improved program retention
Reduction in pain
Patients are usually treated in a group setting in a relaxing, spa-like environment. The NADA Protocol is employed for 45 minutes per session one to two times a week for a minimum of 12 weeks. This protocol is beneficial for all forms of addiction and can be combined with meditation and self-care practices inspired by Chinese Medicine philosophies.
