Auricular Acupuncture- "Acu-Detox"/  NADA (National Association of Detoxification Acupuncture)
     Acu-Detox is a simple auricular acupuncture technique currently utilized in over 1000 treatment programs in the United States and abroad.  Clinical evidence supports its use in reducing symptoms associated with addictions and withdrawal to substance abuse of drugs, alcohol, smoking and food.  NADA, or National Acupuncture Detoxification Association, has been utilizing this protocol developed by Michael Smith, MD for over 30 years with remarkable results.  Research indicates that along with reduced cravings, clients also report reduced anxiety, better sleep, immediate calming, and improvement in physical, mental and emotional outlook.  Acu-Detox is the foundation to recovery...it is the first step intervention...a "nada"-no-non-sense approach to re-balancing well-being and is applicable to many stress induced situations.   Auricular acupuncture is done by placing thin, sterile needles in the ear at 5 specific acu-points and are left in place for 30-45 minutes. As the needles begin to work, changes in energy flow may be noticed and a rapid onset of deep gratifying relaxation may occur.  The effects  often lasts for days and be supported by adjunct therapies and  bodywork. 
Learn the 5-needle auricular acupuncture protocol shown to be beneficial for detoxification from substance abuse and addictions, as well as, help with emotional, physical and psychological challenges associated with stress, anxiety, pain and general comfort management.  NADA trained clinicians learn to apply fine, gauge one-time use, needles to the ears while the client relaxes quietly for up to an hour.  Program includes NADA manual, all necessary needling supplies and an ear model. 
Nurses licensed in Ohio may practice this modality with a physicians order.
