Ear Acupuncture for Addiction Treatment : Ear Acupuncture for Addiction Treatment Suneel Vatsyayan Founder& Chairman Nada India Foundation www.nadaindia.info www.acudetox.com Change, Growth & Recovery… : Change, Growth & Recovery… A drug abuser usually does not know he is out of control. He looks at his drug-using peers and his own use appears normal in comparison. He needs objective feedback on his behavior. It was once thought that alcohol and drug abusers had to "hit bottom" before help could be offered and accepted. This is based on the idea that a drug abuser could only get better if he was self-motivated to change. Motivation….. : Motivation….. “Motivation” is creating the desire to change one’s own dysfunctional behavior and ‘motive’ is the energizing condition that directs the individual to achieve that goal. Motivating the addict to accept help thus forms the first phase of treatment. Motivational counseling & Ear Acupuncture : Motivational counseling & Ear Acupuncture 1. Acupuncture is a non-verbal process. The treatment will be just as helpful if the patient lies or ashamed to speak about certain issues. 2.The patients be able to learn about themselves . 3.Needy, fearful patients can be engaged in treatment before they can tolerate a bonding relationship with staff. 4.Patients with low self-esteem and lack of hope can begin their treatment participation at a realistic level. 5.Patients who are also trauma victims will be able to participate in treatment even though they are fearful of interpersonal relations. Hence a much wider selection of patients can be introduced to substance abuse treatment Facing the challenges : Facing the challenges Patients can be treated before assessment and diagnosis are completed so that the patient can be calm and cooperative enough for a useful diagnosis to be made. Confrontation about drug use is not necessary because a patient can be helped even while they are in denial about the need for treatment. It is possible to provide kind, soothing, attention without the risk of enabling the addiction process. Developing trust between the therapist and patient is much easier. The patient can relax without losing control. Indeed, the whole program can relax without losing control. Trust, relationship and looking forward…. : Trust, relationship and looking forward…. Patients are able to remain comfortable while focused on present time activities. The calm stability in the acupuncture setting creates a relatively timeless process. There is much less pressure to improve according to guilt-related standards. Patients become comfortable with their own thoughts. Patients become comfortable with their physical processes. Patients learn that their private, internal process can be a source of strength and renewal. Patient learn to “let go” of tension and preoccupations. Patients develop their own spatial comfort zone.
