How Does Acupuncture Treat Chemical Dependency?

Acupuncture treatment for drug and alcohol dependence was originally developed in Hong Kong. In the 1970’s, Lincoln Hospital in Bronx, New York, started using this type of acupuncture for drug and alcohol dependence.  Since then, drug and alcohol acupuncture detoxification clinics have opened all over the United States and world wide. Acupuncture  is effective in treating people with alcohol and drug dependencies when combined with a comprehensive recovery program, including therapeutic counseling

Acupuncture can help regulate cravings, sleep and moods. When people with addictions simultaneously receive therapeutic counseling, acupuncture becomes an important part of a person’s recovery process.
