What is the NADA Protocol?

Clinicians apply fine gauge, sterilized, one-time use stainless steel needles just under the skin to five designated ear points in each auricle (outer ear). The patient will remain for up to 45 minutes while they relax quietly in a comfortable chair.  Ordinarily, groups of clients sit together while undergoing the treatment. The procedure functions as an adjunct to a comprehensive treatment program offering the basic therapeutic elements of counselling, education, family involvement, mutual support group involvement, supportive health care of a general nature. Clients in all types of treatment settings can utilize this treatment. Among the benefits reported by clients and clinicians are improved program retention, a more optimistic and cooperative attitude toward the process of recovery, as well as reductions in cravings, anxiety, sleep disturbance, and need for pharmaceuticals.  The NADA protocol is also commonly referred to as: acu detox, acupuncture detoxification, five point ear Acupuncture protocol, five point protocol, 5NP.
