Location: AOMA Graduate School Classroom B1, 4701 West Gate Blvd Austin, TX 78745

Thousands of behavioral health treatment and criminal justice programs worldwide offer ear acupuncture using the NADA protocol not only to support the treatment and recovery process but also to provide disaster/trauma response interventions. NADA strives to make acudetox-based, barrier-free behavioral health treatment accessible in all communities and to ensure its integration with other treatment modalities.

Addiction/mental health treatment professionals, Western medical and Oriental medical practitioners may learn the NADA protocol in 70 hours that are divided into didactic and clinical experiences. This three-day training towards certificate provides a mixture of both. To complete the process, trainees will do additional homework assignments, attend 12-step meetings, and complete supervised acudetox treatments. Texas law allows for the following licensed professionals to cross-train as Certified Acu-Detox Specialists to treat “substance abuse” under supervision: Social Workers, Nurses, Counselors (LCDCs, LPCs), and Psychologists. Space is limited.

Participants in the NADA training through AOMA will undertake their 40 hours of clinical experience in area treatment centers and community clinics.
