Non-Pharmacological Programs

National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA)

Many studies support the efficacy of using ear points as adjunct treatment in the detoxification process of patients addicted to various substances, including narcotics, alcohol, tobacco, and even food. In the early 1970s, Dr. Wen, a neurosurgeon in Hong Kong, found that applying electrical stimulation to the lung point in the ear relieved opiate withdrawal symptoms.

Training is available to learn to administer auricular acupuncture for detoxification. Please contact Jenna Hinkle at
