Acupuncture is used to help manage symptoms of a variety of conditions, including drug and alcohol addiction. A traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture has been shown to reduce stress, improve circulation, boost the immune system, relieve pain and shorten recovery time from illness and surgery. Substance abuse can develop as an unhealthy response to chronic pain and other medical issues. For example, some patients become addicted to pain medications following health problems, injuries or surgeries. These clients must find new, healthy ways such as acupuncture to manage ongoing chronic physical and emotional pain.
Our clients have the opportunity to participate in one-on-one sessions with an offsite acupuncturist. Acupuncture provides an effective, alternative form of pain management for people with substance abuse issues. In addition to helping clients regulate and manage their physical and emotional pain, acupuncture can improve treatment outcomes and prospects for a full, sustainable recovery. At Clarity Way treatment center, acupuncture services are provided for an additional fee.
If you or someone you love is battling addiction and you’d like to learn more about acupuncture and other therapies at Clarity Way drug rehab, please call one of our intake specialists at 888-879-1289.
