Acupuncture in Detox/Addiction Treatment

By Turnabout A.S.A.P.

An Acupuncture Based Drug & Alcohol Detoxification & Treatment Program, formally of Santa Monica, CA. (no longer exists)

Acupuncture has been proven to be successful in both clinical settings and under controlled experimental conditions. The results obtained from a one year acupuncture detoxification program study in Portland, Oregon and a blind study of acupuncture treatment with chronic alcoholics in Hennepin County, Minnesota are:

  • People who received acupuncture detoxification treatment were two times more likely to continue in rehabilitation therapy than people who did not receive acupuncture treatment.
  • More than 70% of people treated with acupuncture successfully completed detoxification, compared with only 50% of hose who did not receive the treatment. For those detoxifying from alcohol, the success rate was 90%.
  • Recidivism (tendency to relapse) of alcohol and drug addicts decreased from 20-25% to 5% for patients receiving acupuncture detoxification treatments.
  • In a blind study of chronic alcoholics in Hennepin County, 37% of the treatment group receiving acupuncture completed the program. Only 7.4% of the control group had a successful completion of the program.
