Alcohol dependence and nada protocol a reflection

  1. 1. Alcohol dependence and NADA protocol A reflective discussion By - Dr Gargi Sinha An initiative of - http://www.arvindam.com
  2. 2. Objective To learn what is NADA stands for? What are the advantages of NADA protocol in clinical setting What current evidence based trials missing in dealing with alcohol users and how practically these treatment are useful ?
  3. 3. What is NADA? It is a acronym for • National • Acupuncture • Detoxification • Association White, A., Cummings, T., & Filshie, J.,2008
  4. 4. How Ear acupuncture use for addiction treatment Needles are placed in five points ,while patient comfortably sits on the chair Importantly, other factors and treatment options are necessary for a complete absenteeism from alcohol . White, A., Cummings, T., & Filshie, J.,2008
  5. 5. What famous books are saying about NADA and Dr. Michael O. Smith • “The place of this treatment has always been clearly elucidated by Michael Smith, who was responsible for introducing it.”(White, A., Cummings, T., & Filshie, J.,2008) Clearly, the leadership of Dr Smith help young acupuncturist to understand the role of ear acupuncture in addiction treatment .
  6. 6. Advantage of NADA Protocol Clinical importance: Can be given in a clinical setting Easy to use technique Treatment can be given in sitting position
  7. 7. Advantage of NADA protocol Usefulness in real scenarios: Alcohol users are reluctant for treatment ,hence, dropout rates are high However, best role of acupuncture is that it help patient to calm down when he/she first visit the health provider. Further , it help patient to become more acceptable towards treatment and they willingly involve in the treatment plan. (White, A., Cummings, T., & Filshie, J.,2008) Even current Cochrane trials are missing these points of drug/alcohol rehabilitation while showing the findings.
  8. 8. Limitation of NADA • Like any other treatment option available for alcohol rehabilitation , NADA protocol need collaboration from other sectors to deliver its benefit to the society. • The patient of alcohol is difficult to treat as it involves multiple dimensions such as social ,mental and physical . Dr Smith emphasised that NADA protocol can attract the addicts to relax and further trust in health care system for treatment (White, A., Cummings, T., & Filshie, J.,2008)
