Group acupuncture for National Recovery Month
September 21, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Join me on Thursday, September 21st at 6:30pm at Heaven Meets Earth yoga to experience a NADA acupuncture treatment for addiction. We all have some type of addiction – caffeine, work, smoking, or sugar are some common addictions. Even if you aren’t an addict, you can experience benefits from a NADA acupuncture treatment.
NADA, which stands for the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association, was established in 1985 to promote the NADA protocol acupuncture treatment for addiction. The protocol uses five specific acupuncture points on the ear to treat addiction and to be an alternative to methadone.
The NADA protocol differs slightly from other acupuncture treatment. The treatment usually involves needling in both of the patient’s ears for about 30 minutes. The treatment is done in a group setting for support for those being treated as they recover from addiction.
Patients are treated in a quiet, peaceful room. Each patient gets the exact same treatment. Group treatment is emphasized to address feelings of denial and create an open, safe environment.
Those in recovery from addiction commonly report feelings of an improved sense of purpose and well being after treatment. Acupuncture is known for its relaxing benefits, which is especially helpful for those in recovery. Patients are able to de-stress in their treatment process to help them continue to make progress.
Most common effects of the NADA protocol include:
Improved retention of rehabilitation programs
Improved mood and outlook
Reduced need for prescription medication
Along with counseling, support groups and/or 12-step programs, the NADA protocol can help make recovery easier and more successful.
