The NADA Protocol is a non-verbal approach to healing.

NADA involves the gentle placement of up to five small, sterilized disposable needles into specific sites on each ear.

The recipients sit quietly in a group setting for 30-45 minutes allowing the treatment to take effect.

NADA ear acupuncture is an adjunct therapy which is clinically effective, cost-efficient, drug-free and compatible cross-culturally.

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 counseling, education, medical support and self-help groups such as AA and NA enhances opportunities for success.
