Accupuncture & Addiction Treatment

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is the stimulation of specific points located near or on the surface of the skin which have the ability to alter biochemical and physiological conditions in order to achieve the desired effect.

Acupuncture points are points that have been designated to have electrical sensitivity. Inserting needles at these points stimulates sensory receptors and stimulate nerves that transmit impulses to the hypothalamus and pituitary glands located at the base of the brain. The hypothalamus and pituitary glands are responsible for releasing neurotransmitters and endorphins which are the body’s natural pain killing hormones.

History of Acupuncture

Acupuncture is over 5,000 years old and was not just practiced in China. The Egyptians talked about vessels that resembled the 12 meridians n 1550 B.C. South African Bantu tribesman scratched parts of their bodies in an effort to cure disease. The Arabs cauterized their ears with hot metal probes. The Eskimos used sharp stones for Acupuncture and Brazilian cannibals shot tiny arrows with blow pipes to diseased parts of their bodies to cure disease.

The first use of acupuncture to treat addiction started in the 1970’s. The interesting thing is that it was an accidental discovery. Dr. Wen a neurosurgeon in Hong Kong was researching the effects of acupuncture on treating post surgical pain and instead found that applying electrical stimulation to the lung point in the ear helped to relieve withdrawal symptoms.

Acupuncture & the Addict

For the addict acupuncture releases endorphins or the body’s natural pain relievers. The release of endorphins has shown to have the effect of temporarily relieving withdrawal symptoms.

“I went to the Beachcomber feeling empty. I wasn’t really wanting to but everyone told me I needed to. I was told in June 2012 that the counselors were in recovery, and they believed in God. When I heard GOD I went. I felt like it was a calling. At first when I got there I felt very uncomfortable and in seconds the lady at the desk made me laugh and suddenly I didn’t feel so bad. My favorite counselor was Trey. He was very strong and firm and a BIG Believer in God. The others were extremely nice also. Since feeling so at ease I felt completely comfortable and I opened up and shared. Not being judged but rather supported I felt free. So I thank the staff you will always have a place in my heart.”

“Beachcomber is an excellent facility. It was the one and last place that my Son successfully sought treatment. The staff was firm but very caring. They always took my phone calls and I had weekly updates with their now Clinical Director Genna. She has kept in touch with all of to this day, and we celebrate my Son’s sober date together each year, as I truly believe she was most instrumental in his recovery. Addiction treatment is a difficult industry and I have the utmost respect for those who work in it. Beachcomber has been around for a very long time and that’s due to its immense success rate.”

“I was in desperate need for my loved one. She was so broken and without hope upon arrival. It took 2 minutes to change her feelings from hopelessness to hopeful and forward thinking and a sense of safety. They created an empathetic, loving, welcoming environment. The therapy is intense and professional according to her. I am so grateful to Beach Combers and it’s caring staff for helping her and putting her on a strong path of recovery. Thank you a million times overs. ”
