Auricular acupuncture or Acudetox can help reduce cravings, insomnia, drug dreams, anxiety and depression during addictions withdrawal, as part of prevention for at risk groups, and can be used to help prevent relapse. Acudetox is extremely low-cost and safe with no medication interactions. This style of acupuncture is known to activate the vagus nerve. It also stimulates the release of endorphins and helps regulate serotonin and dopamine, the brain chemicals involved with addiction. It provides deep relaxation and helps restore internal harmony, which supports the patient in their own process of recovery. Research supports the use of AcuDetox to improve retention rates and reduce recidivism.
