Acupuncture for the effects of addiction and for its co-management have been shown to be effective many times over in the literature. It helps with cravings, anxiety, and even depression. It gives patients a ’“sense of well-being” while they are going through a difficult time coming off any type of an addictive substance.
As the article states, “Separate studies have shown incorporating acupuncture into programs has reduced dependence on heroin, cocaine and alcohol, and made patients more likely to complete treatment, Stuyt told National Conference on Addiction Disorders attendees Saturday in Denver."
If you or a loved one is trying to get through an addiction problem, I urge you to incorporate acupuncture and integrative medicine into your treatment program.
