Acupuncture designed for recovery

Acudetox is a five-point acupuncture protocol specifically designed for those struggling with substance use issues. Clients report relaxation, stress and craving reduction, mental clarity, an increased sense of well-being and more energy. Recovery programs that offer Acudetox have reported more successful completions and less client discharge against medical advice, along with higher client satisfaction improvement.

How does it work?

The acupuncture needles are gently placed in the ear at specific points. This helps balance the body’s energy and assists the healing process. It is referred to in Eastern medicine as a yin tonification, restoring calm inner qualities like serenity. This process is best done in a group setting lasting from 30-45 minutes and is non-verbal with minimal interaction from the facilitator. Acudetox has shown to decrease:

  • Cravings for alcohol and drugs
  • Withdrawal symptoms
  • Relapse episodes
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Agitation

Even more exciting, the effects can be immediate. There are usually no side-effects and the intervention is inexpensive. You do not have to be a client of The Council to participate, anyone is welcome!
