about acudetox

NADA Ear Acupuncture or Acudetox can help reduce cravings, insomnia, drug dreams, anxiety and depression during addictions withdrawal, as part of prevention for at risk groups, and can be used to help prevent relapse.  Acudetox is extremely cost-effective and safe and has no medication interactions or adverse side-effectives.  It is applied internationally within psychiatric care, as well as humanitarian aid/disaster relief.  This training will prepare students to practice in all types of settings.

How does it work? This style of acupuncture is known to activate the vagus nerve. It also stimulates the release of endorphins, the body’s natural opiates, and helps regulate seratonin and dopamine, the brain chemicals involved with addiction. It provides deep relaxation and helps restore internal harmony, which supports the patient in their own process of recovery.  Research supports the use of Acudetox to improve retention rates, reduce program costs and reduce recidivism. 

about the Training

Crossroads Acupuncture, a 501-c-3 organization has trained over a 130 people in Acudetox since 2011, and has helped communities in the border region provide over 60,000 treatments.  This course contributes to the qualifications necessary to use this technique to treat addictions in the US.   After training, we support students up until certification, including an optional portion of the 40 hour supervised internship within programs serving the homeless and low-income/marginalized communities in the border region.  Program support for starting an acudetox clinic is also included as part of the cost of the training. The cost also covers training materials, a training manual, and access to our online acudetox library  See registration form for more details. The training will be limited to 20 students.
