NADA Protocol for the Pandemic – Returning to In-person Treatment
The NADA Protocol can be easily used in any location where a group of people can sit together. It is most commonly used for addictions, behavioral health, disasters & emotional trauma. It is a technique that is versatile, effective and economical.
A variety of Healthcare Practitioners and Community Members have been trained as Auricular Detox Specialists (ADS) including addiction workers, acupuncturists, community health workers, social workers, and family members.
We have a robust resource section full of research articles, videos, eligibility requirements for training, and more. Joining NADA will open up access to all past issues of our newsletter, Guidepoints, as well as other documents.

Hajera Ahmed is working to expand access to the NADA protocol in Washington state. “The thing that stuck out most about Acudetox to me is that there isn’t a hierarchy around who ‘deserves’ healing. EVERYONE deserves love and care, EVERYONE deserves access to a warm space to rest and EVERYONE deserves healing. It doesn’t matter how much money you have or what you do for work or what you believe or what language you speak. Everyone can be their own healer, and hold space for others if they are willing.”
Today, on the 50th anniversary of this event we honor the activists, organizers, collectives, and broader South Bronx community who created the conditions for the NADA protocol to later be developed.
