Thousands of behavioral health treatment and criminal justice programs worldwide offer ear acupuncture using the NADA protocol to support the treatment and recovery process as well as 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.
In this 3-day workshop, participants will learn and practice treatment protocols to support recovery. Using a combination of both didactic and clinical approaches, participants will understand and be able to apply these techniques to their practices. To gain a NADA certificate, trainees can do additional homework assignments, attend 12 step meetings, and complete forty supervised acudetox treatments. Fees include a resource manual and first-year membership in NADA.
