Starting Tuesday May 2nd at 6:00PM, Rebekah Knause invites you to her biweekly clinic: NADA Ear Acupuncture.
The National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA), is a not-for-profit training and advocacy organization that encourages community wellness through the use of a standardized auricular acupuncture protocol for behavioral health, including addictions, mental health, and disaster & emotional trauma (PTSD).
The NADA protocol improved patient outcomes in terms of program retention, reductions in cravings, anxiety, sleep disturbance and reducing the need for pharmaceuticals. Evidence also continues to grow for the use of the NADA protocol in psychiatric/behavioral health care, humanitarian aid/trauma, as well as cancer care.
A wide variety of controlled clinical trials, outcome summaries and anecdotal reports about the use of acupuncture in addiction treatment have been appearing since the 1970s in journals specializing in addictions, mental health, public health, criminal justice and acupuncture. These reports differ vastly in terms of methodology, populations studied, statistical sophistication and clinical relevance as well as in their findings about the value of acupuncture.
