Acupuncture for Addiction Treatment at The Ridge
The Ridge program offers acupuncture services to our residential clients as part of our recovery program. Acupuncture has become increasingly popular as a method for aiding in the treatment of addiction; the treatments can subdue cravings and create a sense of calming and relief from withdrawal. This is because acupuncture releases endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers, thus increasing endorphin levels in the nervous system. A certified acupuncturist performs group sessions weekly. These sessions, in conjunction with the other services The Ridge offers, including counseling, meditation, and yoga benefit the recovery process for our clients.
