Note - after many years of Freedom Center offering free acupuncture weekly, these services are now being organized by the Recovery Learning Community in Holyoke - contact them for more info!
Ear acupuncture is a safe, simple, effective treatment that is used in clinics and treatment centers around the world. It is effective for addiction, cravings, detoxification, insomnia, stress, depression, and trauma. It is said to provide a 'drug-free high' that produces a deep sense of relaxation and promotes healing and recovery. It is also helpful for withdrawal from psychiatric drugs.
These are free, anonymous, drop-in, clinics. No questions are asked about why you are there and intake paperwork is optional. Everyone is welcome.

***We made this free so people of all incomes and economic situations can attend, but for those who can afford to, donations at the clinic would greatly help sustain the program.***
