Acupuncture Drug Addiction Therapy
As a Boston, Massacusetts (MA) resident, there are many options available to you when you decide to seek treatment for drug addiction at Seabrook. One of the drug and alcohol treatment options we provide is Acupuncture Therapy. Acupuncture has been used as treatment for various ailments for many years. Acupuncture is a method that treats patients by insertion and manipulation of needles in the body. Its proponents variously claim that it relieves pain, treats infertility, treats disease, prevents disease, or promotes general health. What we have found at Seabrook is that when coupled with other drug treatment therapies, Boston, Massacusetts (MA) patients find that Acupuncture can greatly help those struggling to kick their bad habits along their road to recovery when paired with out proven techniques.
The acupuncture detox protocol used at Seabrook was developed in the early 70’s as a non-pharmaceutical alternative to methadone for opiate withdrawal. The technique has been studied extensively and has been found to reduce stress; craving and anxiety as well improve sleep and generally aid withdrawal in all types of substance abuse. Acupuncture affects blood flow and metabolism in the brain, it affects the areas in the brain involved in chemical dependence, it modulates pain and normalizes the autonomic nervous system and the stress response. Acupuncture can be a catalyst for change (an “inside job”) by creating a quiet internal space. Boston, Massacusetts (MA) patients have found it to be a valuable addition to their drug and alcohol addiction treatment and therapy.
