About Our Programs

AcuDetox

AcuDetox

Acudetox is a specialized acupuncture protocol that is a simple gentle placement of five small, sterilized disposable pins in specific sites on each ear. Clients sit quietly in a group setting for up to 30-45 minutes during pin placement. 

Acudetox has been proven to significantly decrease cravings for alcohol and drugs, withdrawal symptoms, anxiety, insomnia and agitation.  Acudetox is offered to all Detox and Residential clients and in some of our outpatient programing.
