Drug Addiction and Acupucture: A User's Perspective
A recent article in the Baltimore Sun describes experiences by drug addicts in their struggle to overcome addiction in their lives.
While acupuncture has not been conclusively proven effective in the treatment of addiction, graduates of Baltimore City Detention Center tell their account how acupuncture helps.
"We are not saying it's curing addiction — there is no cure for addiction," says Dave Wurzel, a certified acupuncturist whose firm does the jail's treatments. "Just like there is no cure for heart disease or diabetes. All we are doing in addiction treatment is lowering the risk factor that this person will die today of his or her addiction."
