At SCAC we utilize a holistic approach to addiction recovery, that takes an approach to care for a patient’s mind, body, and spirit. One of the ways we are able to do that is through the use of acupuncture therapy. There is an additional fee for this treatment, however, it can be beneficial in the recovery process.
What To Know About Acupuncture Therapy
Acupuncture treats various points in the body, by stimulating them with long, extremely thin needles. These points all correlate to various ailments, or to a specific region of the body, and can help to stimulate the healing process.
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese healing art and is performed by trained professionals who specialize in using the treatment to help with addiction recovery.
How Does Acupuncture Help Treat Addiction?
Addiction is a whole-body issue. It wreaks havoc not only on mental health, but also physical wellbeing, impacting organ health, the nervous system, and other area s of the body. An addict can experience a whole different set of physical symptoms as they withdraw from substance abuse.
Acupuncture works to provide a better overall sense of wellness within the body, helping balance circulation, and alleviating physical stress. It can also help increase organ functionality, which can help speed up the physical healing process that takes place during addiction.
Is Acupuncture Effective?
While acupuncture has long been thought to increase overall wellbeing, it has also been clinically proven to help with addiction. In one study, patients were found much more likely to recover from cocaine addiction with the use of the treatment.
At SCAC we believe that acupuncture treatment can lend a helping hand in the recovery process!
