Acudetox is a supportive modality and should be used as and when needed, until the client is able to remain clean and support themselves emotionally and physically. It supports people through the withdrawal, detoxification, abstinence and relapse prevention phases of recovery.

How it works:

As toxins enter the human body, organs such as the lungs, liver and kidneys become toxic. This toxicity results in unstable and dysfunctional brain chemistry, which leads to the addictions. In order for addictive behaviour to change, people have to change the way they think.

Removing the mind altering substance from one’s diet is not enough. Recovery is also about changing the way one thinks and what one thinks about. The problem is that toxic organs cause malfunction of the logical brain chemistry function, resulting in repetitive and self-destructive thinking and behaviour.

There is a chemical process involved in logic. Therefore a good detoxification method is essential for a successful addiction treatment program.

Combining AcuDetox with a trauma counselling or addiction recovery program like the 12 Steps of AA or NA ensures the best chance at recovering addiction.
