Many holistic outpatient treatment centers use acupuncture as part of its comprehensive intervention for addiction. Acupuncture is a centuries-old Chinese health care method that has become part of the protocol for drug and alcohol addiction intervention in more than 2, 000 programs in the United States. The holistic addiction treatment center that uses acupuncture usually provides this as part of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM).
Experience with the use of acupuncture has shown that this traditional method helps to reduce agitation and anxiety in patients so that they are able to receive treatment and achieve calmness. A holistic outpatient treatment center will include acupuncture in its treatment regimen in order to help patients develop their capacity for meditation – a valuable tool for overcoming agitation and fear.
A holistic outpatient treatment center employs trained and certified acupuncturists who do the inserting of special sterile needles in appropriate body areas to restore the energy balance. This protocol is based on the philosophy that the body has over three hundred energy lines called meridians; the loss of energy balance in these lines makes one vulnerable to diseases such as addiction.
In a holistic addiction treatment center, acupuncture needles are inserted in three to five specific points in the ear, corresponding to organs weakened by addiction. The lungs, liver, and kidneys are some of the organs that acupuncture aims to fortify. Usually, treatments last for about 45 minutes.
