About Addiction Acupuncture

Acupuncture is the practice of inserting thin solid needles into specific points of the patient’s body to treat different conditions, diseases and disorders. Although acupuncture has been practiced in China since around 2500 BC, it has recently gained popularity in Western countries as an alternative medical intervention. Acupuncture is also growing in popularity worldwide as an alternative treatment option for a variety of ailments, including addiction. Acupuncture for addiction is typically used in conjunction with other treatment options, including therapy, peer support groups and even medication-assistance.

Acupuncture & Addiction Treatment

Acupuncture works by inserting needles into specific points in the body, stimulating the nerves and other systems, also producing endorphins in the body. Acupuncture can reduce stress and anxiety while providing a calming feeling, this can assist with addiction and trauma. Auricular acupuncture or acudetox involves inserting needles into the ear, easing the symptoms of withdrawal and addiction. It is important to note that acupuncture is not a cure all and should be used in conjunction with other addiction treatment options to improve results of long-term success.
