NADA (National Acupuncture Detoxification Association) is:
"a nonprofit association that conducts training and provides public education about the use
of acupuncture as an adjunct treatment for addictions and mental disorders."
This protocol is always used in the detoxification process as well as helping with addictions. There has been a lot of research with the 5-acupoint protocol for helping with detox from any addiction in conjuction with other therapies. While just one therapy isn't always as useful, the combination is the best.
NADA also has a blog! Check here to read the news. There is a yearly conference, usually in April, which is recommended if you would like to become certified.
