Also known as auricular acupuncture, acuDetox has proven effective in easing anxiety and fear that often consumes those struggling with drug and alcohol addiction and impedes their recovery.
The procedure was developed in 1985 by the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association. Its goal was to manage behavioral health symptoms of such problems as addiction, trauma, stress, and insomnia.
National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA) professionals have devised a five-point acupuncture treatment. These five sites correlate with three major organs: lungs, liver, and kidneys. Often, these organs have been found to be affected by stress and ongoing substance use. The other two additional points of placement are for the sympathetic nervous system and sleep.
This procedure called AcuDetox involves gently placing five small, sterilized disposable needles into specific sites on each ear. After the placement occurs, it takes between thirty and forty-five minutes for the treatment to take effect. During that time, clients can sit individually or in a group.
AcuDetox is a research based adjunct therapy that is clinically effective and drug-free. When used in combination with counseling, and medical support, it can be increasingly beneficial in helping clients recover long-term from substance abuse. In addition to being inexpensive, effective, and natural, reported clinical benefits to include reducing mental health issues related to:
Feelings of calm and peacefulness are often reported shortly after treatment begins, as the stimulation of ear acupuncture points indicates a systemic release of endorphins. This treatment modality can be used on adults from all cultural and ethnic groups, as well. Lastly, it has shown to reduce craving and decrease overall withdrawal symptoms.
Studies have shown that using AcuDetox as part of a patient’s therapy produces encouraging results.
