Only the best services and treatments are provided by California Top Rehab to its global clientele. There is no question about the fact that traditional rehabilitation facilities cannot provide the customized treatment that California Top Rehab offers to people who are suffering from drug or alcohol dependency. Most traditional rehabs are dependent on government support that is why they cannot afford the same amenities that are provided by luxury rehabs.
California Top Rehab is well known for providing alternative treatment methods to their patients. When rehabilitation centers apply the cookie-cutter treatment they often fail to help the patient because it fails to address the underlying reasons behind the addiction. People have unique personalities meaning that a custom designed treatment must be provided to gain the most effective results.
Acupuncture is one of the holistic modalities that California Top Rehab uses in the treatment of opiate addiction. Acupuncture has been practiced by the Chinese centuries ago for various clinical conditions. Thin solid needles are inserted into specific parts of the body to treat different disorders. This alternative treatment method is now being widely practiced not only in China but Western countries as a complementary therapeutic intervention.
There are 3 known advantages on the effectiveness of acupuncture in the treatment of drug addiction. When acupuncture is used on a patient, who is dependent on opiates, there are no known side effects that will increase the sufferings while on the road to recovery. Second, opiate relapse can be prevented through the use of acupuncture. Third, acupuncture can be use for pregnant and parturient women.
Based on the observations of Dr. Wen in Hong Kong, when acupuncture is combined with electrical stimulation at 4 body points and 2 ear points, the symptoms of opiate withdrawal are relieved. When self sticking electrodes are placed over the skin on the acupoints followed by electrical stimulation, it can prevent relapse of heroin use and ameliorate opiate withdrawal signs.
More recent studies have revealed that acupuncture helps reduce the effects of positive and negative reinforcement associated to opiate addiction. However, future researches will better determine the extent of the influence of acupuncture therapy in regulating dopamine and other neurotransmitters.
