South Africa faces an addiction epidemic with more than 15% of the population as problem drug users. Treatment is inaccessible to the majority because it is extremely expensive. Considering that a NADA treatment costs around R20.00 per person per day, we believe that the NADA 5 Point is a workable solution to address these challenging issues.
Our vision is to train 5000 NADA ADS’s in South Africa in the 5 Point Protocol over the next 10 years.
I have described the current Lincoln hospital protocol for treating attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in the first issue of clinical acupuncture and oriental medicine (vol. 1, no. 1).
This video shows original footage from Lincoln Recovery Centre in South Bronx and the results that were achieved many years ago in New York. The same results are experienced today as well however nowadays there is plenty of research and anecdotal evidence on its efficacy.
Combining the NADA 5 Point Acudetox protocol with a recognised trauma counselling or addiction recovery program like the 12 Steps of AA or NA will ensure that you give yourself or your loved on the best chance at success possible in recovering from addiction.
