What is the NADA Protocol?

The NADA protocol consists of the insertion of five small, fine, sterile stainless steel needles under the surface of the skin on specific sites in the outer ear. These five points are standard points which control withdrawal symptoms and help patients become more clear-headed and comfortable. During treatment, recipients of the NADA protocol sit quietly in groups for 30-45 minutes, relaxing.
