1 Hour Webinar Training with Laura Cooley, LAc
PRESENTATION: A five-point ear acupuncture treatment is used around the world, beginning in the early 1970’s, and initially for detoxing from methadone. Now expanded for use in behavioral health, including addictions, mental health, and emotional and disaster trauma, NH professionals can now be trained and certified to utilize this protocol. Dr H.L. Wen in Hong Kong discovered the opiate withdrawal symptom alleviation, and creative community members developed what is now known as the NADA protocol, or Acudetox. As Lincoln Recovery Center in the Bronx experimented with learning and using acupuncture for addiction treatment, its role in sustaining recovery over the long term proved more important than alleviation of withdrawal symptoms. The larger impact of facilitating wellness has resulted in the opportunity to design and implement Acu Wellness Centers in NH, to create non stigmatizing opportunities for the citizens of NH to obtain a simple treatment that alleviates withdrawal symptoms, depression, anxiety, insomnia and can facilitate clarity and balance often hard to find for our neediest citizens.
As a result of this training participants will:
- Learn what Acudetox is and what it’s value is.
- Become familiar with how the safe application of 5-point ear acupuncture treatment and the protocol for successful integration.
- Understand the law that allows the use of AcuDetox by those trained in the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA) for the purposes of Behavioral Health in NH.
