What is AcuDetox?

Drug Treatment

AcuDetox is performed by a licensed specialist at our facility and it involves the placement of acupuncture needles in five points on each ear.  Once the needles are placed, our clients sit in our community room for 30 to 45 minutes, quietly relaxing. The needles we use are fine gauge, disposable, sterilized, and stainless steel.  If you are afraid they might cause pain, don’t worry—you’ll barely feel a quick prick as each needle enters your skin. Each of the five points in the ear corresponds to a specific point in the body.  One affects the parasympathetic nervous system and the others affect the heart, lungs, liver, and kidneys.  By activating these points through acupuncture, your body will become more relaxed, while also becoming more effective at cleansing your system of any toxins.

The benefits of AcuDetox are numerous.  Studies have shown that it can relieve withdrawal symptoms, reduce cravings, ease stress and anxiety, improve sleep, lessen depression, and alleviate aches and pains.  For more information about studies that have been conducted on the use of AcuDetox in the treatment of addictions go to for more information.
