Inspired Treatment serves three main purposes:

  1. Education
    • Explain the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA) standardized protocol, e.g. Lunch & Learn on the benefits for stress management
    • Expand on the benefits of acupuncture in general, and how exposure to the NADA protocol can increase interest in pursuing full body acupuncture from a licensed acupuncturist.
    • Present the NADA principles at major addiction conferences – letting attendees experience it to see what it is like
  2. Training in Colorado
    • With colleagues, provide training for people who meet criteria according to Colorado state law, including:
      • Physicians
      • Nurses
      • Acupuncturists
      • Licensed social workers
      • Registered psychotherapists
      • Psychologists
      • Licensed nurses
      • Family therapists
      • LACs, LPCs, CAC-3s
  3. Advocacy outside Colorado: assist behavioral health providers to get the law in their state changed.
    This allows for providers other than acupuncturists or physicians to use the NADA protocol, thereby expanding the scope of practice and accessibility to the treatment.
