Acupuncture is also known to be effective in the:
treatment of addiction, smoking habits being the most widely known.
There are substance abuse clinics in the U.S.A. and U.K. utilizing acupuncture as an important component in cocaine and heroin withdrawal.
Acupuncture is cost efficient, requires no alternative drugs to "kick the habit" and has no side effects.
Most importantly, acupuncture neutralizes the craving for stimulants or drugs, vastly reducing the ” cold turkey” aspects.
