About the event

Join Utah Acudetox for our first training of 2023!  

This training will take place on 2 weekends in January at USARA:  January 6-7 and January 27-28.  Both weekends are required to complete the training.

Acupuncture is a method of treatment that has been used in China for over 3000 years for a variety of ailments. Auricular acupuncture for the treatment of addiction is a relatively recent development in the history of this ancient art. In 1972 a neurosurgeon in Hong Kong discovered that acupuncture alleviated withdrawal symptoms in opiate-dependent patients who were undergoing surgical analgesia for other disorders. Over the next twenty-five years, this treatment was extensively studied, expanded, and improved and is now used successfully in the treatment of all types of drug addictions as well as other behavioral health issues including trauma.

Benefits include reduced cravings for alcohol and drugs, including nicotine; minimization of withdrawal symptoms; increased calmness, better sleep, and less agitation; relief from stress and emotional trauma; discovery of inner quiet and strength; easier connection with counseling; and an intention for recovery.

This training offers professionals working within their current scope of practice in Utah to become competent in the provision of the 5-Needle Protocol (5-NP) ear acupuncture. Licensed acupuncturists, physicians and chiropractors, nurses, physician assistants, psychologists, social workers, marriage and family therapists, substance use disorder counselors, and clinical mental health counselors are eligible to provide the 5-NP ear acupuncture under Utah HB 0195-2022.

This training will take place on 2 weekends in January at USARA:  January 6-7 and January 27-28. Both weekends are required to complete the training.

The training cost will be $410: $360 for the training, plus $50 for required membership at the Punk Level (https://pocacoop.com/join/punk-member/) in the People’s Organization of Community Acupuncture (POCA). You must join POCA at the Punk Level before you register for any training. Some prework and outside classroom work will be required. You must complete all the pre-work, classroom training, clinical practice, meetings, and homework to attain a certificate of training as an Auricular Acu-Technician (AAT) through POCA.

The number of trainees is limited, so please get your application in as soon as possible.
