The NADA US organization, established in 1985 to provide training and education in the technique, estimates today that over 25,000 providers worldwide have been trained in the procedure. Projects that offer the NADA protocol exist today in over 40 countries (National Acupuncture Detoxification Association, 2013). The settings in which the NADA model has been integrated include addictions, psychiatric/mental health, prisons, post traumatic stress centres, disaster relief, Native American reservations, refugee settings, pastoral care, humanitarian aid, sickle cell, cancer and HIV/AIDS care, case workers, volunteers, and harm reduction workers.


On the 7th of April 2014, NADA South Africa announced plans to train 5000 new ADS's in the NADA 5 Point Protocol over the next 10 years, to address the epidemic of addiction in this country. For more info click here

NADA To Train 5000 ADS’s In South Africa in 10 Years

Written by admin on . Posted in Frontpage Blog

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.

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.
