NADA Membership

Become a Member

NADA membership is available to anyone. Medical or other healthcare training is not a requirement.

By joining NADA, you will provide direct support for accessible and responsible acupuncture-based treatment and recovery.

Many people become NADA members through the acudetox specialist training, led by a NADA Registered Trainer located in the U.S. or Canada.

Upcoming Cafés

August 19th, 2020: Meet the Grassroots Committee


Membership Café

The Membership Café is a virtual monthly event hosted by NADA’s membership coordinator, Taneha Watts. It is held on Zoom for members only. With a selected guest speaker, we explore different topics in the NADA community and provide education, connection and support for our members. This is a good place to ask questions and share comments.

Membership Cafés take place the 3rd Wednesday of the month. Check out recordings of past Membership Cafés, in our Member Resources section.

If you would like to join a Café, and you are not a member, sign up for a membership and contact us for an invitation to join the event.


The Guidepoints newsletter is the only publication devoted to the sharing and dissemination of our NADA work on an international scale.
