Acupuncture has been used successfully for over 40 years at the Lincoln hospital in the South Bronx, New York City. A psychiatrist named Michael Smith started a program there in the midst of the early 70’s poverty of that area, with it’s over 15% heroin addiction rate. He understood that an individual’s addiction wasn’t just a physical problem, but a psychological problem. Acupuncture detox continues in that site to this day. The NADA protocol for acupuncture detoxification has spread all over the world.
