A Recorded Webinar


This presentation will start with the history of NADA, including how it was discovered and developed and some of the research that has been done over the past 50 years to determine safety and effectiveness. A description of the points used and a discussion of the western and eastern medicine philosophy behind the points will follow. There will be a discussion of how it is being used in programs around the country and how it can be used to help with opiate withdrawal, with and without MAT, and with co-occurring disorders to help calm anxiety and improve sleep. It will finish with a description of training and how people can assess trainings and depending on their state laws, who can do this.
