National Acupuncture Detoxification Association
The NADA protocol has been shown to decrease significantly:
- Craving for alcohol and drugs withdrawal symptoms
- Inpatient detoxification admissions
- Anxiety, insomnia, and agitation
Patients are usually surprised to discover that regular acupuncture provides consistent relief of cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Acupuncture treatment for substance misuse has shown to be clinically effective, cost efficient, free of side effects, compatible across cultures and most importantly sustainable.
