Acudetox (ear acupuncture) combines modern Western medicine with ancient Eastern wisdom. The sessions are non-verbal and allow the client time to simply relax while the process takes place.


The National Acupuncture Detoxification Association five-point protocol involves the gentle placement of up to five small, sterilized disposable needles into specific sites on each ear. These needles are inserted in defined pressure points that correspond with different organs for specific reasons.

The recipients sit quietly in a group setting for 30-45 minutes or in an individual space allowing the treatment to take effect. NADA ear acupuncture is an adjunct therapy which is clinically effective, cost-efficient, drug-free and cross-culturally observant.

It can easily be established within behavioral health, addictions or disaster relief settings or in any location that a group of people can sit together. The combined application of acupuncture with coaching, counseling, education, medical support and self-help groups such as outpatient programmes, AA and NA, enhances opportunities for success.

Coaching is no a replacement for medical, psychiatric or therapeutic services. Coaching is designed to support and empower individuals as part of their personal and professional growth and development. Before stopping or decreasing the use of habit-forming substances it is essential to seek medical advice and support. If you are under the care of a medical or mental-health professional please ensure that you seek their advice and consult around your substance-use disorder and mental health care.
