Auricular Acupuncture provides a method for detoxifying the body. Five needles are inserted into specific points in each ear while the participant sits quietly for about 45 minutes. A sense of relaxation and calm eases into the body, mind, and spirit as symptoms of withdrawal are reduced, making recovery a more attainable goal.
We offer this protocol to everyone who comes into our non-residential treatment program for all types of addictive disorders. It helps sooth withdrawal symptoms, mental obsessions, and using dreams that plague early recovery.
