Acupuncture for addiction recovery & depression: (Ear and Electro acupuncture)

Acupuncture is becoming a complementary treatment in addiction recovery programs. Ear and Auricular acupuncture is a popular form of this treatment that involves insertion of a thin needle at various points on the skin of the external ear to help ease withdrawal symptoms and reduce cravings. Acupuncture is both safe and cost-effective. When combined with other forms of treatment, such as individual therapy, group counselling, and support groups, it can benefit those suffering from a substance addiction. The practice can reduce cravings, increase patient retention in rehab, ease unpleasant withdrawal symptoms, decreases anxiety and stress and reduces pain.

A developing number of individuals are utilizing alternatives, and new research proposes that Acupuncture could be a promising alternative. One new investigation observed the Traditional Chinese practice to be as viable as antidepressants, and an alternate report found that needle therapy may help treat the depression.
