The National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA) protocol is available to all patients wishing to incorporate Acudetox as an adjunct to his/her treatment at Emergence Health Network.
The NADA protocol is not intended to replace other methods or modalities of traditional treatment offered at Emergence Health Network. Acudetox has been shown to be effective in alleviating the severity of withdrawal symptoms associated with substance use. Acudetox participants have reported a reduction in cravings, headaches and discomfort following the Acudetox procedure. Acudetox gives a sense of well-being, minimizes depression, stress, anxiety and drug cravings experienced during withdrawal which are part of post-acute withdrawals symptoms (PAWS). Many substance abusers experience intense craving, anxiety, mood swings and insomnia for weeks or months after cession of substance use. These prolonged withdrawal symptoms have also been found to be effectively relieved by Acudetox.
