At Steps Together Rehab we know that alcohol and drug rehabilitation can be physically demanding on the body.
We therefore combine drug and alcohol detox with other therapies to help the body cope with the process.
Acu Detox is an acupuncture of the ear that works with Post-Acute Withdrawal Symptoms (PAWS). This procedure can be done either laying down down or seated in a chair by a trained Acupuncture Detoxification Specialist.
The benefits of Acu-detox means that it can deliver a more optimistic and cooperative attitude towards the process of recovery, giving a reduction in cravings, anxiety and sleep disturbance, therefor being less reliant on medication.
